I have a hard time finding shoes in my size, but they had these in 16s. They fit great and are very light and comfy. The only downside is that the white bordering gets scuffed fairly easily, so you'll need to be wary of where you're walking. Other than that, it was well worth the cost.

Very cute print. These shoes are not meant for comfort, but are good to go out in as long as you don't have to do a lot of walking.

I purchased these shoes for my girlfriend and she really thinks they are Fancy-Smancy. The shoes arrived promptly and without a hitch. I've already told numerous family members and friends about the excellent service and products Zappos has and I will definitely purchase from them again.

Brands I'd also recommend: None at this time.

Great purchase! Got these for my 14 year old daughter and when they arrived I noticed they had a small "water" stain on the top (even though they were clearly new). I emailed Zappos and asked how to do an even exchange and had a response immediately. The employee who helped me was amazing...they sent a new pair overnight and told me to simply keep the old pair. By far the best customer service I have ever come across. I would definitely be ordering from them again.

I love the way these shoes look and get compliments on them all the time! The top part irritated the top of my right foot at first (under my big toe), but that seems to have fixed itself. Overall I really love them.

Nice, tough feeling fabric for the upper, solid standard Vans lower. If you like Vans, you'll like this shoe. Construction is the same as the regular Authentic models, but with some very stiff outdoorsy laces. Also comes with regular grey shoelaces if you don't dig the skateboard-hiker look. The fabric is a little thick, and it can press uncomfortably on the top of the foot if the laces are tied too tight or get twisted oddly. I imagine this will reduce as they are worn in.

This was the first purchase I made off of zappos and I have to say I'm more than happy. I'm obsessed with this pair of vans perfect for summer events such as baseball games and Fourth of July. As with all of my vans they are super comfy and easy to break in.

As far as comfy cute style goes they can't be beat! They gave me blisters until I discovered you really need to invest in the Vans socks (they look lame with any other kind or just plain hurt!). The color is gorgeous, they clean easily and I've already received tons of compliments on them. I also recommend watching some lacing tutorials so you can set them up with bar style laces and make them shoes you slip on and off for the ultimate laid back cool look.

Note: The (sparkle) choral color actually sparkles, i.e. it's sprayed with glitter. I was expecting a more sun-faded red color based on the photos.

The leather laces are lovely but a little challenging. It does come with white sneaker laces also if they are too challenging for you. I used bow-tie lacing and a double slip knot to tie and it looks good and feels comfortable.

I got the denim with ripped checkerboard for my daughter. She loves them! They are cute, stylish and go with everything! She is normally a 5.5 so we ordered 4.5. She insists on wearing them everywhere! Even on long hikes! These shoes are great and I would strongly recommend buying a pair.

Thanks to Zappos for providing quick shipping and a reasonable price on my Vans 'Authentic' shoes. The shoes are comfortable, and offer a casual style for a relaxed look. They go well with cargo shorts, jeans, or even dockers. Quite happy with what I got.

I bought these for my teen grandson for his birthday -- his top pick of style and color from many choices. He adores them, says they fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I think he wears them almost every day, now the snow and ice have finally gone.

What can I say? Vans are classic and Zappos is amazing. Best prices anywhere and really good customer service (especially the return policy). This was my first time ordering from Zappos, but I'll be a regular customer from now on.

Great shoes! Bought for my son who goes through shoes way too often. His last pair were same as this one, but canvas. They lasted a few weeks. This one is not fraying at the bend where the toes are. He's had them for about a month and they look great! I think these will last at least twice as long. By the way, it took a lot to convince him to get these instead of the canvas ones, I explained they were exactly the same, color and all, but all his friends had canvas ones!!! When they can he was a bit skeptical, but within a couple of days he was, and still is, thrilled with them.

I love these Vans! They are are very comfortable as most vans typically are and give every look that extra edge. I am a size 6 in woman's so ordered the 5.5 in men's and they fit perfectly. The delivery was extremely quick and of course I cannot say enough good things about the Zappos customer service team. They are simply wonderful! ;)

Very cool shoe but had to go a half size larger. Zappos sent the exchange, overnight, before I even sent the others back. No one ever does that and they didn't charge a restock fee!

Classic Vans. They don't have a ton of support, they won't hold up forever, but they're comfortable, fit well, and are the best for this kind of style.

The shoe looks great in person. The leather doesn't feel cheap and looks nice enough to wear somewhere nice. Plus, the yellow laces that came with them as seen in the picture look good. I'm use to the Italian Leather Vans and I like these just as much. I would recommend this shoe.
