The shoes are as exactly as shown on the Website. I believe I received a good price on a sale item. I would to see more specials for budget minded consumers.

As far as comfy cute style goes they can't be beat! They gave me blisters until I discovered you really need to invest in the Vans socks (they look lame with any other kind or just plain hurt!). The color is gorgeous, they clean easily and I've already received tons of compliments on them. I also recommend watching some lacing tutorials so you can set them up with bar style laces and make them shoes you slip on and off for the ultimate laid back cool look.

Note: The (sparkle) choral color actually sparkles, i.e. it's sprayed with glitter. I was expecting a more sun-faded red color based on the photos.

The leather laces are lovely but a little challenging. It does come with white sneaker laces also if they are too challenging for you. I used bow-tie lacing and a double slip knot to tie and it looks good and feels comfortable.

I got the denim with ripped checkerboard for my daughter. She loves them! They are cute, stylish and go with everything! She is normally a 5.5 so we ordered 4.5. She insists on wearing them everywhere! Even on long hikes! These shoes are great and I would strongly recommend buying a pair.

Love these shoes. Comfortable, casual, and classic! They go great with jeans, khakis or shorts. I own 3 pairs and rotate throughout the weekend.

Thanks to Zappos for providing quick shipping and a reasonable price on my Vans 'Authentic' shoes. The shoes are comfortable, and offer a casual style for a relaxed look. They go well with cargo shorts, jeans, or even dockers. Quite happy with what I got.

I bought these for my teen grandson for his birthday -- his top pick of style and color from many choices. He adores them, says they fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I think he wears them almost every day, now the snow and ice have finally gone.

What can I say? Vans are classic and Zappos is amazing. Best prices anywhere and really good customer service (especially the return policy). This was my first time ordering from Zappos, but I'll be a regular customer from now on.

Great shoes! Bought for my son who goes through shoes way too often. His last pair were same as this one, but canvas. They lasted a few weeks. This one is not fraying at the bend where the toes are. He's had them for about a month and they look great! I think these will last at least twice as long. By the way, it took a lot to convince him to get these instead of the canvas ones, I explained they were exactly the same, color and all, but all his friends had canvas ones!!! When they can he was a bit skeptical, but within a couple of days he was, and still is, thrilled with them.

I love these Vans! They are are very comfortable as most vans typically are and give every look that extra edge. I am a size 6 in woman's so ordered the 5.5 in men's and they fit perfectly. The delivery was extremely quick and of course I cannot say enough good things about the Zappos customer service team. They are simply wonderful! ;)

Very cool shoe but had to go a half size larger. Zappos sent the exchange, overnight, before I even sent the others back. No one ever does that and they didn't charge a restock fee!

Classic Vans. They don't have a ton of support, they won't hold up forever, but they're comfortable, fit well, and are the best for this kind of style.

The shoe looks great in person. The leather doesn't feel cheap and looks nice enough to wear somewhere nice. Plus, the yellow laces that came with them as seen in the picture look good. I'm use to the Italian Leather Vans and I like these just as much. I would recommend this shoe.

I got these for my teenage son. While he says "there is are no shoes that get a five," he has no complaints. He likes the way they feel and the way they look, and their style.

I bought a pair of these shoes for my grandson; after he wore them for only a couple of weeks the rubber sole started separating from the canvas. Zappos immediately (overnight) sent me another pair, and told me to just discard the old pair. Fantastic service, wonderful company.

These shoes are fantastic. A few years ago I had a pair of Sperry Top-sider sneakers like this but they were way more expensive and didn't last nearly as long. These Vans are cute and sturdy; they can go with jeans and a sweatshirt, or khakis and a dress shirt and look great regardless. I've worn my current pair roughly every other day for the past 9 (ish) months and they're only now starting to look a little ragged. Time for another pair!

Classic style, perfect fit, and comfy too. It's hard to find a "brown" colored canvas tennie, so thank you Van's. I inserted a Dr Scholls arch support & made them perfect for my feet. My only wish is that they made this color in the "Original Classic," style as well as this "Authentic" style. Zappos Selection and Service is outstanding, as always!

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!
