I am very happy with the shoes. My husband loves Vans. He won’t wear anything else. This pair was a change for him in style and he seems to love them. I am also EXTREMELY happy with how fast I received my shipment! I will be shopping here again for sure!

Very comfortable right out of the box. Nice soft leather. They look good with jeans and shorts. If you're looking for a neat, leather tennis shoes, I would definitely recommend these.

I bought these shoes for my daughter and she loves them! The delivery was fast, delivered right to my front door within a couple days! This was the first time using Zappos & we will continue to use them! Great service!

My daughter loves these shoes. They are comfortable and true to size. More importantly, Zappos proves its commitment to customer service time and time again. They are the best!

I love these. They are sturdier and more weighty than you would expect. They look great and are comfortable. But there is not a lot of cushioning, if that is what you are looking for.

Awesome as always, but I've noticed that you should size down a full size from what you normally wear. For some reason the specs on vans are running big. Enjoy!

This is the most durable pair of Vans I've had so far. The last pair was chambray cloth and was the least durable pair I'd ever had. I love these!

Cool! These shoes unleash my inner urban chic. They aren't super comfortable, but I walk the city in these and I'm fine. Purple and sparkles...nothing beats that.

These look clean! If you like the canvas authentic vans, and want something a little more sophisticated, I would recommend a pair of leather vans!

The reviews are accurate and these fit and feel nice after breaking them in, just like most Vans. I got the Suede Dark Shadow and they definitely stand apart from other black shoes in a good way. My second pair of shoes bought off Zappos, and they are not kidding with the free shipping. Rock on, Zappos!

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.
