This is another great Vans Authentic shoe. They were a bit stiff at first, but loosen up well after a few wears. I love the look of these different laces and the color.

Love these shoes. Got them next day. Wore them to work for casual Friday. My first Van's since my son would not share his. Comfort all day long! Will buy again! Zappos has great service.

I love these shoes! I bought the Port Royale color with black laces, and I absolutely adore them. My arches are a bit lower in general, so I like the feel of flat shoes, but they're definitely not for everyone. Personally, I can wear these all day and my feet feel fine at the end of the day. The color is just fantastic and they work with most shades of colored skinny jeans. (Except, of course, if you're trying to match red skinnies with red shoes... Highly recommend!

After purchasing my first pair of Vans Authentic, I went back to Zappos for another. These sneaks are more comfortable and cooler than your basic keds, in my humble opinion. They're classic.

I love my Vans. Ordered a pair for my granddaughter for Christmas and they had to be returned due to the size. I ordered myself a pair. The service was fantastic!

This is the second pair I bought but in different color because I like them so much. They are a true Vans classic. I have a wide foot and they fit. Not recommended for someone that has a really wide foot. I also ordered a half size bigger because of my width issue.

What more can you say about the classic look of blue with white Vans? They fit comfortably as well as lending a stylish classic twist to any outfit! I never thought finding a pair of navy blue shoes would be so difficult...but of course Zappos comes through as usual...written by a Zappos shoe aficionado!

I purchased these shoes for my 87 year old mother; she was looking for something that she could wear socks with during the winter and these fit the bill. She wears a women's 10 1/2 wide, so I ordered a men's 9 1/2 hoping that the extra half size would give her the width that she needed - it did. She says that the shoes are extremely comfortable and she likes the slight "pop" of color - as do I.

What can I say? Of the entire Vans collection, these are the best offering I've owned, tried and true. They're super comfortable and casual while still looking clean and smart, and they can be happily worn with or without socks (I'm always just throwing them on as I run out the door for anything and everything). It's a super huge plus that they come in a ridiculous mess of colors (VARIETY!), so you can have two or three pairs in your closet for different get-ups throughout the week. They do tend to get dirty pretty quickly, especially any of the ones with white soles. But they're sneakers -- they're supposed to take on some moderate fun. The breathable canvas has absolutely no break-in time either! For that reason, they're not the warmest shoes, but they get the job done. With heavy/daily use around town, a pair will last me around 2 years before the wear and tear starts setting in. If you skate, cut that time in half. An all-around fantastic sneaker for a super fair price! Highly recommended.

My daughter loves these (Glitter) Black/Micro Dots Vans! Same Vans Authentic fit, but with some sparkle. Perfect for an 11-year-old who wants her shoes to stand out, but doesn't want "little girl" pink shoes. To make her shoes stand out even more, my daughter added zebra laces, purchased from Target. My daughter has worn them to school every day for the past 3 months and the sparkle material looks as good as new. I wish that Vans had more cushioning and arch support. They are fine for casual wear, but not good for PE or events that require a lot of walking.

Zappos is awesome! I made a mistake by buying the wrong size of shoes and Zappos shipped me new pair before I could even send back the original. The shoes I bought came to me within 3 business days and were in excellent condition. Zappos is amazing and I will continue to buy shoes from here.

Bought these for my 13 year old granddaughter and she loved them! Pretty good fit, though they do run a bit big. Would rather have a bit big than too small. Also, as usual, great shopping experience with Zappos!

Classic shoe. Had a pair about 20 years ago and loved them then as well!. Great casual shoe that goes with practically anything. Really comfortable, but not a walking shoe if you need good support.

I got these shoes in the denim and my boyfriend loves them, except for one thing. The denim color runs when it gets wet, leaving a permanent mark on the shoes, he rides bikes a lot, so there are very dark permanent blue stripes across the toes where his clips are. Just something to keep in mind if you live in a rainy city.

Even though we live in NYC, these shoes were hard to find in a larger size. My daughter usually wears an 11 Women’s but had to send these back for a 10.5. Zappos was EXTREMELY helpful in shipping the second pair ASAP . . . She was extremely happy . . . which makes for a happy mom!! Thanks Zappos!!

My 10 year old loves these shoes. She has worn them every day since receiving them for Christmas. I'm not sure if it's the shoe, or the highlighter yellow (very bright) color that she loves so much. Either way, they look great with everything from jeans to sweats, and she has an extra bounce in her step! Extra bonus for me, I ordered these late on December 22nd and had them in my house on the 24th. Amazing!

Classic Vans style and quality with a color twist. I bought these for my daughter and she absolutely loved them. They look super cute and wear well. Plus they can be washed when they get really grubby looking and they come out looking stylishly worn. These are great sneakers for the style conscious yet unpretentious teen. I have ordered other colors since. Girls with wide feet should order boys/men's sizes. In most cases, the shoes are nearly identical, but men's are just cut wider.

This shoe is great! To be honest it's holding up better than the one I got from the actual Vans store. I would really recommend this shoe to anyone because of the amazing fit and color.

My daughter loved these shoes, and they survived 5th grade recesses for many months. Beware, they run a half size bigger than normal.
