I bought this for a present to my girlfriend and she loved at first time. She said it is comfortable and pretty good looking.

My daughter didn't break in the shoes before wearing them new into Disneyland for two days! She was okay on day one, but on day two, she was hurting, but she liked the shoes! I also ordered another pair, in black, for my other daughter. She's been wearing her black shoes everyday since she received them! BTW we ordered them and got them one day later! Must be a California thang.

They were a Christmas gift for my son, and the shoes are already coming apart at the seams. Literally. I have to contact Zappos to return them. My understanding is that returning them is simple. I am hoping the next pair are built to last.

These shoes are comfortable, perfect for working out, and stylish. I recommend them, but I do find them to be a little bit big for the size marked. I'm still giving them 5 stars.

It's very comfortable, and it came in less than a week. I suggest getting the exact size you wear for your other sneakers. Great for girls and guys! They also come with white laces. I got the ones with yellow laces, but the white came too for free.

I absolutely love these sneakers. The colors, suede and dark grey sole are ideal and perfect to wear in the fall/winter with your suits. White soles would get too dirty too quickly this time of the year. The price is a deal!

Vans Authentic are great shoes. They're comfortable and lite. They do tend to wear out quick if you put a lot of miles on them very quickly.

Brands I'd also recommend: Sperry, Converse, Adidas (sambas)

I bought these shoes for my 17 year old son. He loves them. They replaced another pair of Vans that lasted over a year on a teenager. If I can get away with spending a lot for a year of use, we have a winner. Plus, they look great! And, of course, Zappos delivers every time. Thank you for showing the world how to do internet retail sales. Under-promise, over-deliver. Works every time it's tried.

I ordered another style of shoe and it was out of stock and it is still not in stock so I settled for this shoe. Sometimes things happen for a reason. I love this shoe. I wear an orthotic insole in all my shoes and this shoe easily accommodates the orthotic and the shoe is stylish. It looks great with jeans and it has a solid feel so I can use it for short hikes or long walks. Because I spend a lot of time outdoors and in casual wear, this shoe is a good choice.

These shoes are great...they're just like the classic canvas, only leather. The best part is Zappos free shipping, and I received them next day. Thanks for the great service.

These are light, and comfortable, but they are not good for skate boarding which is what I got them for. They are only good for show.

I ordered the black with the yellow and brown laces. The flat insole is great for people, like me, who have their own insoles. This is a great shoe. Love Zappos.

Bought these as a birthday gift for my niece (who's a super picky/hormonal 11 year old!) Well she was thrilled, and they fit great! Perfect pick and she's really tough on shoes!

Wonderful Shoe! The leather does stretch a little bit, so definitely don't buy larger than necessary.
