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.

At first I wanted Navy suede etnies Taylor LS but they were out of stock so I decided to find something in that style and discovered Vans. I've heard about them but now I see that they are brilliant. I bought dress blue and it is very stylish, sexy, comfy and once again very stylish. I am going to buy other colors too. They go with almost everything. I am a 17 years old boy.

These shoes are comfortable, perfect for working out, and stylish. I recommend them, but I do find them to be a little bit big for the size marked. I'm still giving them 5 stars.

I ordered the black with the yellow and brown laces. The flat insole is great for people, like me, who have their own insoles. This is a great shoe. Love Zappos.

I love vans, but the fit is not very "foot supportive." I add my own arch support from a drug store, and I can wear them all day long. It also aids in making the fit "true to my foot." Very, Very cute fall street shoe!!!!!!!!!

Simple skating/sailing classic!!! Totally sweet. I really just bought them because they were special edition ones with the Descendents logo all over them ... but I don't regret it a bit. No arch support, but nothing a little insole can't help. Perfect fit, light but sturdy. Woooooo Vans! Let me also say that the laces are of a notably appropriate length (not too long or too short).

Got the "Italian Leather" white-colored version of this style, & it was definitely worth it. I've always loved how a classic clean white shoe looks with pretty much anything you wear. I've had my fair share of white canvas shoes (from Vans & some other brands as well), & was looking for a non-canvas white shoe to throw into my pretty small collection of shoes. I got really excited when I saw that there was a "leather" version of this style. It's only been a few days & I am completely impressed! "Italian Leather" must be code for "already softened, not stiff-at-all leather" because I honestly think these are softer than a new pair of canvas Vans. They wipe clean, unlike canvas shoes, & I just hope I can prevent that yellow color that develops over time. For comfort & style I totally recommend the Italian Leather version of these shoes!

Have these in 3 colors and I love them! Being a city dweller, I walk a lot! These sneakers are functional, trendy, comfortable and practical for everyday wear, hence the three pairs! I have flat feet and find the key to support for me is to tighten the laces and wear an inexpensive insole with an arch support. I walk about 5 miles a day and have no problem with my feet bothering me with these-- Truthfully, I have my eye on two more pairs!

These are some fresh kicks. They are incredibly comfortable. They lace up so low on the foot that you really don't have to tie and untie them. They're basically slip ons. The only problem I can think of is that one round of frisbee in freshly cut grass stained the white rubber lower trim green.

These shoes will really make you stand out, in a good way! They're neon, highlighter bright so you can't help but feel energized when wearing them. I've received compliments on them almost every time I wear them, which has been a lot. They're very comfortable and 100% worth it!

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!
