Holy crap! stop the video reviews this review sounds like every other sneaker review you have a traditional lace up system, even mid-sole, this and that for comfort and support. Zappos, look at the shoe, tell us what is different than what I can see from pictures and descriptions. Please stop wasting my time.

Wish I could vote all 5 stars but my son found this style to be very uncomfortable and somewhat narrow. We were surprised since they resembled his old Vans, but perhaps he bought a different style before. Anyway, we took another reviewer's advice and exchanged these for Vans Chukka Low -- a much more comfortable shoe! Overall, great looks but not comfortable if you like a little more padding.

I recently purchased the smooth leather Era for me, and the canvas style for my wife. When I ordered them, Zappos was changing their shipping procedures, and I complained when I didn't get them right away as I've ordered several pairs of shoes from them and never had this problem. In the end they ended up comping me over $150! I got the shoes for free, and Zappos has a customer for life. Back to the shoes: the Eras are a good shoe. My wife and and I are tall people with big feet, but Vans succeed in disguising this fact well. The minimal styling, basic, classy, oldschool charm of the shoes is the best out there. You couldn't give me a pair of Nikes or Addidas. I used to play Basketball in Skate Hi's for heavens sake, that's how much I like this brand. A lot of shoe companies copy the Vans style, but they really don't come close. I've owned Eras, Slip Ons, Skate Hi's, Chukka Boots, and Chukka Lows. Van's are comfortable but not on your feet all day work shoes, and aren't meant to be. They're a skating and casual shoe, but they're cool. Vans are the only skate shoe as far as I'm concerned, and my life long choice of casual foot wear.

Great looking sneaker. It's so stylish. The only negative is that it doesn't have any arch support. That being said, I would get these many many times over.

These Vans are truly rocking! They are such a great deal. They come in the normal shoe size you are. They are exactly as if I would have bought them at PacSun or any other store. I truly recommend these shoes as for it's a sin to not purchase them.

Great shoes! But if you put a lot of pressure on your heels when walking (as I do) the insoles tend to wear down pretty fast. Just a warning.

This shoe totally rocks. At first the shoe may feel a bit snug, but once you walk around the house a few times, you'll be fine. The only con about this shoe is that you will get many compliments. Even from famous people, no lie. Just don't tell them where you actually got them. Great buy, a must have.

Brands I'd also recommend: nike vans and more nike's and vans

I ordered these shoes for my granddaughter who is living in Italy with her parents who are military. I love that you ship to Zappos. Zappos had these shipped and on time for her birthday very quickly. She told me she loved them (she is 15) and got tons of compliments on them. I told her from now on, Zappos was the only store she was allowed to pick a gift from! Easiest gift I ever gave. She went on line, chose these shoes, sent me the link, I paid, gave the address, and Zappos did the rest! Thank you, Zappos!

Zappos is the best! Ordered these shoes yesterday around 11am and picked the free shipping. They were already here today at noon! And you can never go wrong with a pair of Vans.

The color way of this shoe is amazing, the good old white and black combo. The leather is what really set this particular shoe off, and what made it a must buy to add to my Vans (Era) collection.
