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!

This is quite easily one of the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn. Good fit all the way around. I'm sure that I will being buying another pair when the time comes.

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.

Love, love, love these shoes. I will order a half size smaller next time. They run just a little large. They go with so many different outfits.

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 bought these for my 13 year old daughter's birthday. She loves them. Wears them all the time with and without socks. She loves that they come in so many different colors. She would like to have them all!

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.

These shoes are very comofortable. They are lite, bouncy and fun!Perfect summer shoe. The sizing runs a bit small, I had to return the first pair and go up a half size. Also, I found the shoe strings to be a bit too long but other than that I love them. will definitely buy again, whenever the green is back in stock.

Been wearing vans authentic for years, they're super comfortable and a great value. This color way with the laces was a new one for me, the blue really pops.

I love these! They are the Vans I used to wear as a kid, but yellow! The color is bright and makes me smile every time I look at my feet. They are cute with jeans, shorts, capris, maybe even skirts/dresses but I haven't tried that yet.

Love my retro vans. The color is a beautiful salmon. I did change the shoe laces to white. The leather seamed a little bulky. They came with brown cloth laces also. I just prefer the white. I ended up sizing up a half size. I wasn't sure because of the rounded toe but it worked out better for me. As always GREAT service from Zappos!

This is my millionth pair of Authentic Vans. These are taking a while to break in and I keep getting blisters - ouch. But I am getting a lot of compliments on the sweet design/pattern. Will continue to buy Vans from Zappos!

I'm definitely a "VanBoy" for Vans shoes, this pair was my 16 pair. Festival season is getting ready to kick off for me and these remind me of all the hippie backpacks and hoodies I see there. The material is thicker than the normal canvas material that Vans come in. This was great for me because the upper is usually the first thing to go for me. Overall this is a great shoe no matter what color they are, but I have gotten a lot of compliments on them.

Great shoes. They are just as awsome as all my other pairs of vans era. Two bits of warning though. They are a little bit more pink and purple than they look in the picture and they match nothing. I would suggest jeans or cargo shorts with a solid colored top. Although they are hard to match with, I get a lot of compliments on them.

These shoes look good, but don't try to skate in them. Wasn't looking for a skate shoe out of these, but tried it the other day for the cruise into work and they weigh about 10 lbs a piece. Other than that, they're great all around shoes. Color is rad.

Vans is for sure my favorite brand of shoes. Ever. I've had various styles throughout the years, more recently owning a couple pairs of Authentic, a pair of the canvas slip ons, and a pair of TNT by Tony Trujillo. It's a brand I keep going back to because I've never had a problem with the quality, and though they aren't built like, say, a running shoe I still feel they're very comfortable and have decent support for the average foot. Especially after a few wears. I wear a women's size 10.5 in all Vans, and feel they're true to size as I also wear 10.5 in other brands of sneakers, such as PF Flyers (my favorite brand for high tops). As for the width, I feel they're also true. Years ago I tried on a pair of Keds because they were on sale but felt they run quite narrow. The Keds would have fit fine in a wide width, but they don't make size 10.5 and the 11 was too big. I've had no issues like that with Vans. So unless you're a hardcore skater (when I skated I preferred styles made with suede/leather for more stability and durability,) a pair of Authentics or their other canvas styles are great for everyday wear. I think they're a better canvas shoe than Keds because they're far more substantial feeling and have better traction. And as if the comfort wasn't good enough, Vans always has an amazing selection of colors and prints!

These are so cute. I get tons of compliments on them every time I wear them. They have a lot of colors and go with everything. I normally wear size 9 or 9.5 and got these in size 8, but probably could have worn size 7.5. They are big but I like them comfy so kept them. Very cute and you can just toss them in the washer as needed.
