I ordered another style of shoe and it was out of stock and it is still not in stock so I settled for this shoe. Sometimes things happen for a reason. I love this shoe. I wear an orthotic insole in all my shoes and this shoe easily accommodates the orthotic and the shoe is stylish. It looks great with jeans and it has a solid feel so I can use it for short hikes or long walks. Because I spend a lot of time outdoors and in casual wear, this shoe is a good choice.

Bought these for my daughter and my son for Christmas. Both pairs have already started to wear out quite a bit. The rubber has separated from the canvas on both pairs right at the ball of their foot.

I love these little shoes! This is my third pair (I walk a couple of miles daily on pavement, so I wear them out quickly), and I intend to keep buying them as long as I'm in motion.

Vans are great shoes but it's the experience of buying from Zappos that brings me back time and time again.

Colour is exactly as it shows on the website. Replacing my very reliable pair of 3 year old yellow Vans, who has made it through a long, hot summer in North Carolina and cold, muddy Seattle winters with me.

Vans are so classic and very stylish. Great shoe, great service! Bought brown as I already have black. Black matches everything. If your debating on color, black is a no brainer. The question then is white sole or black sole? I view black sole as fall, winter, or dressier casual. White sole is clearly celebrating nice weather and good times!

Absolutely love this shoe! Fell in love with the mint green color. My first pair of vans, but will not be my last! Felt great on my feet and look cute with just about anything. I ordered these shoes on a Saturday night and got them on Monday afternoon... Zappos is amazing!

This was a gift for my son and I love it that Zappos offers free shipping both ways!! No need to return the shoes tho! My son loved the shoes and they fit perfect! They also were less expensive than purchasing in the Vans store!

I absolutely love these sneakers. The colors, suede and dark grey sole are ideal and perfect to wear in the fall/winter with your suits. White soles would get too dirty too quickly this time of the year. The price is a deal!

These shoes are great...they're just like the classic canvas, only leather. The best part is Zappos free shipping, and I received them next day. Thanks for the great service.

Bought these as a birthday gift for my niece (who's a super picky/hormonal 11 year old!) Well she was thrilled, and they fit great! Perfect pick and she's really tough on shoes!
