These are fabulous shoes but unfortunately the right shoe was too tight in width...not shoes' fault but my own "unique" feet! I loved the bright neon pink color and it truly saddens me to have to return them.

Great shoes. The footbed is well cushioned, with a pleasant, slightly squishy feeling. I chose to add some gel inserts because I preferred some additional arch support, but there is some. The shoes look cool, made of a nice leather. All in all, a good purchase. And Zappos is a pleasure to deal with.

These shoes are great! Unlike the Vans Slip-on that I could barely get my foot in regardless of size, these fit very easily. I've walked inordinate distances in a single day without getting uncomfortable. The canvas has started to crease white but they're very soft, light and tight.

Love, love, love these shoes. Everything about the fit is perfect. Only downfall was it darkened my white socks when worn, so I switched to dark no-show socks.

Really comfy, and they look amazing. The color is just what I wanted. I swapped out the black laces for some red ones and these are now my favorite shoes!

These are my first really low Vans, usually going for the old school Skate Hi. I thought they might be slightly too small at first, but after wearing them around the house they felt fine. The cushion has a weird feeling, sort of uneven on my foot, then it flattens after a minute and they are comfortable. Totally digging these shoes and wearing them out more often.

I have four pairs of Vans Authentic and Zappos is the only place to buy them. The customer service is the best and I mean that in the most literal way. No other company treats their customers with the respect like they do. Like I said I have four pairs of these bad boys (pewter, black, off white, and neon yellow) and love everyone of them. They feel great, look great and when you get a crazy color people are jealous when they see them. For shoes that are so expensive you cannot beat that. If you buy Vans, buy them from Zappos. If you do not see your color call them and they are willing to keep you in the loop and will try to get the color you want. Plus did I mention the ultra fast shipping? Not one bad experience, I will be a Zappos customer for life.

After just 3 weeks of my 13 year old wearing them, they are tearing away from the sole! This is his 4th pair. The 1st 3 pairs were fine!

One of the best shoes I have ever purchased. they stay clean cause of the leather, and just look all around nice. Surprisingly comfortable given how flat they are, would by this shoe again once these pair wear out. Favorite pair of shoes I own.

These are my favorite pair of shoes. I purchased them in black denim, and they match everything! If you wear low-cut socks, they do show a bit. If you have socks for Converse, they'll work with these too. The construction of the shoe is very well-made, and I can tell they'll last me a while! These shoes are super comfortable out of the box, and they get even better after a couple days of wearing them! I walked miles in these in Washington, D.C. and my feet were hardly sore. They fit true to size - I wear a women's 10 and the 10 in these fit perfect. Go buy these shoes if you haven't already. You'll love them!

Bought it for my 8th grader son. He loves it. Zappos price was lower than at local Vans mall store price for the same shoe. Shipping, as always, was excellent.

Love these shoes! Super simple, bright, and fun! Only downside is the white rubber around the bottom gets scuffed pretty quickly but it's easily manageable with some spray cleaner. They're also not the warmest shoes but that's expected due to the materials.

Got the "Italian Leather" white-colored version of this style, & it was definitely worth it. I've always loved how a classic clean white shoe looks with pretty much anything you wear. I've had my fair share of white canvas shoes (from Vans & some other brands as well), & was looking for a non-canvas white shoe to throw into my pretty small collection of shoes. I got really excited when I saw that there was a "leather" version of this style. It's only been a few days & I am completely impressed! "Italian Leather" must be code for "already softened, not stiff-at-all leather" because I honestly think these are softer than a new pair of canvas Vans. They wipe clean, unlike canvas shoes, & I just hope I can prevent that yellow color that develops over time. For comfort & style I totally recommend the Italian Leather version of these shoes!

Have these in 3 colors and I love them! Being a city dweller, I walk a lot! These sneakers are functional, trendy, comfortable and practical for everyday wear, hence the three pairs! I have flat feet and find the key to support for me is to tighten the laces and wear an inexpensive insole with an arch support. I walk about 5 miles a day and have no problem with my feet bothering me with these-- Truthfully, I have my eye on two more pairs!
