When preparing to purchase these shoes I was unsure of sizing, so I just ordered my normal size: 8 women's - 6 1/2 men's. It fit perfect. Also provides comfort and style.

Purchased this pair for my nine year old son who is very hard on shoes. He loves the style and being able to choose the color combination that matches his taste. We were going through shoes so quickly; I was buying shoes for him at a local discounter (Payless Shoes or Target) but I was wasting money. I'm not one to buy "name brands" but these shoes are worth the price because they last longer.

I had the best experience with Zappos. For my birthday I wanted to treat myself so I'd looked all around town to find my "Old school" Vans - to no avail. I remembered their site, & Voila! There they were & there was a special representative too. She delighted in my story & excitement as well-she rushed me my tennies & I can't tell you what a feeling it was to have the best service along with my new rides. Thanks Lily. She even sent me a Thank You note! Seriously won't ever forget the whole wonderful experience!

These are my favorite shoes. I have worn them biking and standing at work all day, but I do sometimes have to wear an insole with them - which is fine, because of the way they're built I can fit in any combo of thick/thin socks + with/without the insole. In suede, they look just a little fancier than canvas, and stand up to the elements a bit better. I had my last pair for over a year of traveling and restaurant working. A worthy investment.

Granddaughter loved the shoes. I (Grandma) loved the service from Zappos. Rapid Delivery and photo of product in confirmation e-mail. Shoes fit and look good -- so no need to return, but we feel confident we could return if necessary. Thanks!

Both my brother and I ordered our usual size in this style of Vans and they both felt one size larger. Both he and I had to exchange for one size smaller.

I love Zappos! Free, speedy shipping and, more importantly, free, guilt free returns. I have daughters with size 10 and 11 feet and Zappos has wonderful choices for all sizes. I can't say enough about this company. They really understand the value of excellent customer service!

Super uncomfortable if you move your feet at all. I guess I didn't read the description very well, but the complete upper part of the shoe is canvas. They're like slightly nicer versions of Keds. The heel section repeatedly scratched the back of my heel as well, which is now irritated. Disappointing shoes for a huge fan of Vans like me. I'll still keep buying Vans though; no way this wasn't a fluke.

The shoes look great with pants. They also have good traction on the bottom. They are nice casual shoes to wear. The only thing that's wrong with them is that your feet can get cold easily in cold weather because of the thin canvas tops.
