I absolutely adore these and the color, the style, the fit, everything! I'm a mom and I need to run around after my kids, but I want to be stylish while doing and these shoes definitely give me that. I receive many compliments on the purple color, which is my favorite and true to the image on the website. I love these.

This is a great 'run around' shoe. It does not accommodate my orthotic though. If you don't have foot problems, this is a wonderful shoe.

I bought these as a gift to my girlfriend and she loved them! The size is just right, they don't run too big or too small. They're perfect and an excellent gift! Zappos is amazing!

Love them! If I could afford it, I would have these in every color! I have the neon pink with purple and the seaglass colors right now. I get compliments on them all the time! Super comfy shoes!

My second pair of Van's in a year. The first pair in pewter really got beat up with a lot of stains. I wore them every place (I live in Fl.) because they're so comfortable. I like that they have a very flat sole. This time I got Waxed Black which should be almost stain free. The laces on them also are a lot better.

My 11 year old daughter loves these shoes. She goes to a private school, so I switched out the laces and wolah!! the only negative, and I'm not sure if it's the shoe or just her foot, but they do rub right in the back on top.

Perfect! Exactly what I ordered! it was my first time with Zappos and it got here fast and cheaper than directly through the Vans store. And as far as the shoe, this is my second pair because I loved my first ones so much!

My daughter saw these shoes in a magazine and knew she had to have them! We searched several sights, including the Van's website. Either, the shoes weren't available, weren't in her size, or cost more. Zappos came through for us! Shipping was fast! We had to send the first pair back, because we misjudged her size. (I think the shoe runs true to size, I just didn't realize what size she actually wore.) Our return/refund was handled very promptly with no hassles! The shoe really does not have much arch support - I knew that prior to purchasing, but she was more concerned with appearance over support. (Since she's been having knee problems, we did add a Dr Scholls insert, which seems to help her some in terms of adding a bit more arch support.) Overall, my thirteen year old daughter is very happy with her zippy new kicks! All her friends love her style!

These shoes (salmon) are beautiful - only thing is they run small. I'm expecting a little stretch with wear and I don't plan on wearing socks with them so I should be okay.

These shoes (waxed black canvas) are beautiful - only thing is they run super small. I'm normally a 4.5 with a bit of space still left but with these there was no room at all, already called on for an exchange. Jeff took very good care of me.

I'm in love. This is my 1st order from Zappos. And I am absolutely satisfied with my purchase. True to size, color, and texture. And most importantly, it met my standards. Thank you Zappos.

Such a cute comfy shoe to wear around campus! They fit perfectly but do take some breaking in. I highly recommend that everyone owns at least one pair of Vans!

My daughter got this shoe to wear for fun, and to wear for hiphop class. I think they have held up very well, considering the amount of wear/ stress she has put them under. She loves them.

I love these shoes. I wear them every day. A pair lasts me about six months before I wear through the heel (that's longer than most casual sneakers for me).

This shoe is great however isnt the same color in person as it appears in the picture. I was looking for a more mint/darker sea foam type color and these are def more green than minty. I found out the color that is more minty is Beach Glass/True White which in the picture looks super light but in person is a few shades darker. Both are great colors for summer but this just wasnt the color i wanted. Great shoe though and true to size.

These are my first pair of Vans ever and I am pleased to say that I absolutely love them. I am usually a size 6 in womens for boots and sneakers depending on the shoe, but they did not have my size in the color that I wanted. They only have a 5.5 and my feet area true 5.5 for sandals, so I decided to order the 5.5. I read other reviews saying that they run 1/2 a size to about a whole size larger. And these definitely do run half a size larger. If I had gotten a 6, then it would be way too big for me. I absolutely love them and I cannot wait to wear them!

Purchased these as a gift for my husband. He wears Vans every day. He has had navy before but not this darker version. He loves these and is able to wear this classy dressed up version to work.

I love these sneakers and am a loyal Vans buyer. The back of one of the sneakers was a little uncomfortable along the back of my ankle and kept rubbing against it but that's the result with any new sneaker. Other than that these are a perfect, adorable, casual pair of shoes!

These shoes are fantastic! They go with almost everything! On top of that the color I purchased was unavailable almost everywhere; however, Zappos came to the rescue! Comfort wise they are alright not too bad or too great. However, I thought they ran about a half a size small. They do have a lot if support though. However, with all canvas shoes, they can get dirty quick. In conclusion if you're looking for cute every day shoes, go for it. And if you're unsure about your size, Zappos has a great return policy, and customer service!
