After going to 3 stores at our nearby mall and being told my size was not in stock, I came home and looked on Zappos for my shoes. Of course they had my size, color and style I was looking for. Although the stores all said they could order me shoes, that would have taken twice as long and another trip to the mall. Instead my shoes were at my front door in 2 days and I wore them before I would have had them otherwise! The price was the same and shipping was free, so I actually think I saved money buying them online. Thanks Zappos!

You just cannot go wrong here. They will get lots of compliments as people love the purple. It pops in all the right ways - and goes with just about everything - jeans, shorts, khakis, I have even rocked these with suit pants. They are just beyond rad. The purple fades over time giving it an even cooler shade. These are big overall winners.

These hard-to-find shoes are perfect (especially for lovers of purple). They are comfortable and the sequins stay on. Also, the Zappos super service was, as usual, perfect.

They are comfortable. They have a cool style for youngsters and for adults is an OK casual wear. They last for a long time.

Good, durable, shoe that's fun to wear without socks and when I'm kicking it on the beach. I've had them for two months and they still look almost exactly how they did out of the box.

Zappos is awesome. The shoes I bought for my daughter were too small. I called Zappos and they sent me a new pair the next day! They emailed me a return shipping label, I put it on the old box, and dropped it off at the UPS store. We received the new ones before I even dropped off the old ones. Zappos rocks!

Just when you thought you've seen every available variation of the Vans 'Authentic' skate shoe, along comes a version in soft Italian leather. Very spiffy and classy, especially in white.

Love the shoes. Love this site. It's the 2nd pair of shoes I've bought from Zappos. They even upgraded my shipping for free. This place is the reason why the internet was invented...and for science!

I bought these as a gift for my son. I was a little afraid to give them to him as I know our tastes differ. He loves them! They are comfortable and fit his foot well. He wears a 13 and I bought a 13, they are true to size. The color is neutral so they can be worn with anything and they look great!

The shoes were what I expected, Vans delivers in that area. I was disappointed that I did not receive white laces to go with the shoes, the picture clearly shows them with white laces. That wasn't too much of a problem though. My pair started to tear in a small spot where the sole meets the cloth of the shoe, but that may have been due to the rough night I wore them on. I fixed it with a little super glue and they are as good as new. These shoes will hold up through moderate use, nothing too extreme. Great for dressing up or just casual wear.

Great looking shoe. Some other reviews said it felt small, but to me the size 10 feels a little bigger if anything, but not enough to make me send them back. Overall I'm quite happy with the shoe and the service and they came on the day predicted and the free shipping was nice.

I love Zappos, they are the best. I never had a problem when exchanging a shoe. I get it next day at no additional charge. Customer service is very courteous and helpful and to me that's the most important part of the business.

I love my vans. They're even nicer than the pictures. I actually bought a second pair in white. They're great with a pair of cargo shorts and a nice T. Most of all, I love Zappos.com. These guys are just the best. I'm a true fan and always go to their site first. They don't disappoint.

Great shoes, stylish and fun to wear. Odd future kind of style. Only problem is, they break and stain very easily. Buy more than one pair.

This sweet little shoe is super comfortable, and surprisingly has a lot of support in the sole. It fits great, and I love the color scheme. Great for working on the lake this summer.

A classic model with classic colors that compliment many outfits. Great for skating, but uncomfortable for walking since I have a high arch. Rubber sole retains its grip after many heel drags.

Casual Classic! No real arch support or insulation, but perfect for kickin' it in mild to warm weather. Canvas upper makes for easy washing. Old school design never goes out of style!

I bought these shoes for my 12 year old daughter and she loves them. She says that they are very comfortable but I am sure that the stylish aspect of these vans are what she really likes. I myself have several pairs of vans and find them to be comfortable fun shoes to wear!

Good price and great product. I was surprised at how quick the free shipping was. I will definitely order from Zappos in the future and I would recommend them to anyone looking to get a good deal on some sweet kicks.

These shoes lasted less than one month. The glue failed and the sole seperated from both shoes. I am very disappointed and will not waste my money on Vans again.
