I wanted a shoe that somewhat looked like my Chuck T's because I started noticing everyone jumping on the Chuck T bandwagon. At first they were just an acceptable replacement, but now I think they look better with most jeans and shorts than the Chuck T's. I can wear them with socks or without socks and be comfortable. That being said, the worst part was the break-in period, which lasted over a month. The upper heel support is leather or synthetic leather, either way it is REALLY tacky. This ate away at my heel for quite awhile. I like to wear no-show socks and those were not high enough to stop the back of my ankle from getting chewed up. I started walking on the backs to make it loosen up a bit. I even contemplated putting some sort of fabric tape back there, or cutting out the leather part. But I toughed it out, and after about 1.5 months it eventually stopped being so tacky and now the shoe is perfect.

Both pairs of shoes I ordered and received from Zappos are cheap crap. The pictures cannot be trusted.

Herk Engineer. I got my first pair of checkerboard Vans in the late 1970's when I was in high school in Southern California, (Artesia High). They were cool then and they're still cool today. Since then I've been flying for the Air Force for 16 years here in Arkansas. I got a pair for Christmas last year and I was surprised they still existed. I'm 41 now and I get so many compliments when I,m sporting my Vans. Everyones body grows older, but you're spirit doesn't have to,(I still skate the half pipe). For style, comfort, fit, and especially personality, you can't beat the "Classic Slip-On.

Brands I'd also recommend: You'd have to ask my wife, she buys all my other shoes.

This is probably my 6th pair of Vans Slip-Ons and therefore it is obvious they are one of my priority shoes for all around comfort and wear to work and any place with casual dress. I give them a 5 stars and i give Zappos 10 stars for customer service when I order and whenever I have questions. Everyone has always been super efficient and super friendly and that makes my shopping a pleasant experience every time I call. I live in a remote area and they have never failed with overnight delivery. Zappos is super.

My old one was starting to develop a crack on the side rubber and small hole on top at a criss where it bends. Ordered a smaller size but it didn't fit so I returned and got the correct size with no hassle. Zappos works for me!

I'm a long time Van fan, and there is nothing more comfortable than slipping on a pair of Vans and taking on the world. I find them true to size and there is no break in period. They are a classic!

Brands I'd also recommend: The only other shoes I wear are Naot clogs.

Not a cushy shock absorbing running shoe but a basic canvas and rubber sneaker. I got these to keep me from bare footing around the house and yard. They're great for that. Quick to step into and kick off. When I get 'em scummy from yard work and car washing I toss 'em in the washer and sit 'em out to dry. I wore them out to dinner when I first got 'em but then put 'em to work. I'm gonna get another pair so I've always got a dry pair on hand. And of course Zappos is great to deal with.

Great shoes to keep my feet cool. I can wear these in Spring, Summer and Fall just by changing from thin socks to thick socks. The grey color goes with almost any pants.

What can I say, I love Vans. This pair of classic slip on is really cool. I got this pair just to wear casually but you can definitely skate these; they have the classic rubber bottoms, flexes really good and are pretty light. Size is right on, awesome buy!
