Beautiful shoe and beautiful color. A typical Vans shoe, but it was on sale on Zappos vs. full price on every other website. They got here the next day, too.

Bought these for my daughter for Christmas. The color is really nice for a girl a little brighter than navy. We've always bought her actual size with Vans. Definitely would order again! Love Zappos!

Looks great. Feels great. Just make sure to get a half size up. I am a 9 and not that it didn't fit, just a very tight fit. Depending on the color you buy this is a great daily.

I purchased these as a gift. Not only did the package arrive on time, it arrived early, and in mint condition. The product itself was a success, the recipient very happy. This is a quality product.

These shoes are great. Especially as my job as a driver, the sole really grips on the pedal. I bought the waxed black. I really like the feel and how it looks!

I had to return the first pair I bought because I ordered the wrong size and their costumer service was wonderful. I got the new pair in just 2 days. As for the shoe itself, I have to say I love the style. I came to Zappos because the Vans website only had these in sizes 10 and up (men). Not only did I find them in my size here, they were cheaper than the Vans website. (And no shipping cost) The shoe is like all other vans, they aren't very soft and may take some breaking in. The style is great and I have gotten compliments on how unique they are. I would definitely recommend.

from Lafayette, LA

Love these shoes! Cute with jeans and shorts. Took a few weeks to fully break them in...the back doesn't have much give and is very stiff so it took a while till I could wear them without getting blisters (no socks). I have a very high arch so there is absolutely zero support, but with an insole they will be even more comfy. Plan on getting multiple pairs!

Very nice look and feel, except like leather/pleather there's a breaking in period, but after that they're true to fit.

Awesome pair of classic Vans. The colors really pop. I bought them as a gift for my sister. I would advise going half a size down.

Dad o

from Fairfax, VA

Only found this unique style on Zappos and not even in our local Vans store. My daughter has been asked by many people where she got them and I'm sorry to report that she deflects the question with "not sure...my dad got them for me". Doesn't want everyone getting in on her find! Excellent ease finding what she wanted, sizes, color, and best for me was the PRICE, SERVICE, and SPEEDY DELIVERY! Always awesome. As for the shoes and they're original Vans. Simple style, not a lot of arch support, great durability and they usually are a little wider than other shoes (just a bit).

It's a Vans Authentic. Some canvas shaped like a shoe that'll last a year, maybe. That said, I haven't worn anything else since I can remember nor have I shopped inside an actual shoe store in equally as long. Why bother when you got Zappos? Ultimate selection, free shipping - can't beat it.

Great for casual/vacation wear. Fit was good with limited support, but that is not a surprise. They stayed clearer and the fabric appears more durable than expected. I am very happy with them.

As usual a good shoe. Just a cool twist to a classic. Gold eyelets are an awesome accent along with the gum sole. Great for casual wear or slightly dressed up!

I love these shoes! I used to wear these as a kid, and they haven't changed much in 30 years. Still no nonsense and comfortable. And they look great with or without socks, with jeans or shorts. They run a little big though. I had to order a half size smaller than I wear in Nikes and most dress shoes.

I love these shoes! They were true to size and were comfortable the minute I put them on! I am on my feet all day and they are awesome! Zappos has the best customer service too! I order all of my son's shoes from Zappos, and I love that I get them the very next day with free returns if they don't work out. I am a very happy customer!
