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!

I love all my Vans and these included. These shoes run true to size. I wear an 8 in Vans and Converse but like the wide toe bed of Vans. Also the tie dye rocks!

The shoes are great as I expected, Authentics feel and fit great. The green color was not what I had expected. It looks more like a mint green in the picture, but actually it is a bright neon green. No problem though.

This is my main go-to shoe for nearly every occasion. I even have a pair that looks "classy" that I will casually rock with a dress shirt and slacks. I find these to be an overall more stylish skate style shoe that both kids and adults can "rock" with no issue. Support is what you would typically expect from this style of shoe: lacking. I do not recommend if you have feet that tend to feel worn out quickly. As for comfort, I find the Authentic's to be one of the most versatile shoes. What I mean by this is that there is almost no other shoe that can be comfortable in 90% of occasions. I highly recommend picking a pair up, they will last a long time and once you go Authentic's, you'll never go back!

Brands I'd also recommend: Converse (In all reality though.. just buy the Vans)

I love the color of these Vans! I was surprised that they go with so many of my colored jeans. I have wide feet, high arch, and a narrow heel and these fit perfectly. So comfortable. and they last.

I absolutely love these shoes, but just a heads up, they're a bit pink. They aren't the most comfortable shoes, but having owned several pairs before that was to be expected.

This is a great shoe! Even though the insole is not removable, it still works with orthotics. I had to order a half size bigger to accommodate my orthotics. This shoe also runs a little small so I ordered a total of one size larger.
