I really like the look of these shoes but they aren't as comfortable for me as some of the other similar Van's styles, like the Era, with padding in the tongue and collar, which feel great. The width is a bit tighter on these too, but I can still wear them.

Great looking pair of shoes for casual wear and everyday use. Not much arch support but a pair of insoles should fix that up.

For those who have purchased Vans in the past, these are pretty much inline with all Vans shoes. However, they are a step up in quality with the leather upper, etc. They look and feel o.k. Of course, they are not cushy running sneakers...very flat and virtually zero padding. I love the looks. Something to keep in mind, the white is really "OFF" white. Darling shoes! Get them on sale.

I don't know why the shoes look more beautiful than it actually is. But I still like it. A unique design in color, very comfortable.

The color is awesome! I own several pairs of Vans, and all of them are really well represented in the pictures on Zappos. For some reason, the material in this pair seems to be a little stiffer than past pairs, but I'm sure they'll break in soon. As always, give them a good spray of Scotchgard to keep them looking new, but otherwise they look great out of the box and will be well worth the purchase.

I own 4 pairs of Vans, and these are by far the coolest color of all. They're comfy, can be dressed up and certainly down, and fit true to size. I usually wear a wider shoe, and these Vans Authentics fit really well despite that. Take the color bleeding warning seriously: if these go in the rain or wet grass before getting a coat of Scotchgard, they will run/bleed. Keep them beautiful with a bit of prep and they'll last you forever.

I purchased these Vans because they reminded me of a pair I owned when I was younger. I love how they look "old school." They are comfortable and fit great. I really like the chocolate brown color.

I absolutely love these shoes! I have arthritis and these shoes are so comfortable and don't leave me sore at the end of the day (compared to my other sneakers) and are really easy to slip on and off. The pink isn't as bright as in the picture, so these go with almost anything. Very well made, very comfortable, and very cute. I've already ordered a second pair!

You can't go wrong with Vans authentic sneaks. Good comfort classic deck skate styling. Good grippy outsole. These sneaks have a wide fit if you have a a foot on the narrow side. Awesome color and many more colors to get!

We've only had these for about a month and there is already a rip in the side. The wearer doesn't drag his foot along the ground sideways, but that is what it looks like.

These Vans are blue. Like, Blue. Electric cerulean technicolor blue. I bought 'em half a size down to wear without socks...they work perfect for those summer Fridays where you want to wear your trousers rolled (whatup J. Alfred Prufrock) and go to work looking like a guy who can pull off blue Vans. Because you can, buddy, you certainly can.

These shoes are awesome! I love the style. I got the methyl blue and I have to say people are giving me compliments about these shoes. I also have to say they run true size. They also make good gifts.

After almost a year of wearing these once or twice a week, these shoes developed a squeak loud enough to attract comments from my coworkers. However they are flattering on my large female feet so vanity wins and I will continue buying them. I use them with SuperFeet insoles as the arch support is pretty much non-existent.
