I absolutely love my vans. They fit perfectly and hold up very well. Zappos is the best way to purchase any type of shoe. They are very loyal to their customers and help with anything you need.

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!

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!

Vans - These shoes fit well and were very comfortable. I wore them for 3 days at a conference where I was on my feet constantly. Even though I had just purchased them, they were comfortable and I did not get any blisters.

Great selections... The shoes fit great but definitely go to a shoe store and try on a pair of Vans in the style you are looking for. We ordered from Zappos because it carried styles you don't always see in the stores.

Great Shoes - I have worn Vans for as long as I can remember. They are the most durable shoes that I have ever worn. I get so many complements on my floral print shoes. I tell everyone I shop at Zappos.com.

I finally got it right! I bought two pairs of tennis shoes already and didn't get it right and finally found the perfect ones!! I love these!! I got the puzzled pattern and they are SO great! My big obsession is socks and I wanted something creative and cool looking that would go with a wide variety of socks and these are totally the ones! Very comfortable! I never cared about arch support other than hating when there's too much, but since I'm paying attention there appears to be some, but not too much... most importantly these shoes are SO cool looking and I think they really will go with all my socks without clashing.. which is hard to do when the shoes have a pattern... the puzzle is the perfect pattern for me :) (SO happy with ma shoes!) Also, sizing is perfect. I generally go anywhere from a women's 9 to 9 1/2 to occasionally a 10 depending on the shoe... in this case I went with 9 and its perfect. :) So, if you vary between sizes, go with the smaller one that tends to fit you, not the larger ones.

Vans Authentic Are The Best!! Vans Authentic Laced Shoes are the best shoes for the money. They feel cushiony and the colors are very nice. Try not to break the back when putting on. Wipe Clean with damp rag and soap-don't put in washing machine. The fit is very good.

Brands I'd also recommend: Vans Classic Slip Ons With Padded Collar Is Great!!!

Very cute shoe - This is such a cute shoe. The puzzling design is just awesome. I ordered this shoe late Friday and received it by noon on Monday. Zappos is the very best. I really wish that they had a store in my area. Customer service is just great!!!! Zappos is number one in on-line shopping stores. Hats off to you.

Cute, but slightly painful - The left shoe rubs on the bone by my little toe, so I haven't been able to wear them very much.

Vans Rock - These Vans are terrific! I remember wearing these back in the day. I'm glad to see nothing has changed. I've ordered 3 pairs this month (the espresso for me, 2 in red, one pair for me, the other for my 16 year old son). My son also wants the all black. I'll most likely get the true white. Zappos, you're the best. Your super FAST shipping and your return policy cannot be beat. THANKS!!!!

Vans authentic - I got the gray and black checkered kind and they are awesome. They don't have padding on the back unlike the other Vans that look similar and I think these are more comfortable. Also the front part (between the laces and the toe) is a lot smaller than on other Vans so this shoe doesn't make your foot look like a boat. Even on a larger foot it is a really cute looking shoe.

Cool then...Cool now. I loved these shoes back in the 80's, and just got my first pair since then. I can’t believe I ever wore anything else! They're comfortable, look good, and cost less than half of what most sneakers cost these days! Depending on the shoes (and socks) I usually wear 10-10.5 (although I do have a couple pair of 9.5's I can wear comfortably)...and I got these in a 10.5, and another pair that were 10's. The 10's felt small, and much narrower than the 10.5's, so I think they get progressively narrower as they get smaller. I would go with a half-size bigger than usual if your foot is on the average-to-wide side. Zappos return policy is excellent and easy though!

Always a good choice - I've worn Authentics at one time or another for the last 15 years or so. They're always comfortable. They don't provide a whole lot of support, and they don't last so very long, but I still love 'em and they're still pretty cheap (they cost like $20 back in the day...)
