Love the look and feel of these shoes, however stitching began coming out after only about a month of moderate wear. I own other pairs of vans in the same style and have not had this issue, I may have gotten a bad pair and Zappos made everything right, just keep and eye on the stitching.

Classic Vans. They don't have a ton of support, they won't hold up forever, but they're comfortable, fit well, and are the best for this kind of style.

The shoe looks great in person. The leather doesn't feel cheap and looks nice enough to wear somewhere nice. Plus, the yellow laces that came with them as seen in the picture look good. I'm use to the Italian Leather Vans and I like these just as much. I would recommend this shoe.

These look great, but the lining of the footbed has come loose on them twice now (original pair we ordered, then a replacement pair Zappos sent us).

I got these for my teenage son. While he says "there is are no shoes that get a five," he has no complaints. He likes the way they feel and the way they look, and their style.

I bought this shoe for my 13 yrs old daughter. It's comfortable and she really like it. It came on time and I also bought other items from Zappos before and very happy with them.

Disappointed. Shoes look cute but feel cheap on. No padding, edges are rough and stiff. Needs an insert of some kind or really thick socks which makes them less useful for summer. Not worth the price at all. Zappos did a great job, however, with very quick shipping.

I bought a pair of these shoes for my grandson; after he wore them for only a couple of weeks the rubber sole started separating from the canvas. Zappos immediately (overnight) sent me another pair, and told me to just discard the old pair. Fantastic service, wonderful company.

Very cute. Perfect with jeans. Everyone knows that Vans are not made for comfort just style. I love the look. I wear a thicker sock to make up for the lack of support in the bottom of the shoe. An insert insole from Dr. Scholls is good too. I love mine.

This is the second pair of Vans I've bought, and I really like them. The color is true to what is shown on screen. Vans are canvas and tend to stretch out a bit as you wear them, so if you are between sizes, I recommend going with the smaller half-size. I was skeptical of the laces when I saw them on the web, but now that I've seen them in person, they add a bit of stylish sportiness. Definitely don't type-cast these as skater shoes...I've never stepped on a skateboard in my life! I wear mine to work with chinos and an untucked button-down for an appropriate balance of business casual with flair.

Brands I'd also recommend: Converse All Star

These shoes are fantastic. A few years ago I had a pair of Sperry Top-sider sneakers like this but they were way more expensive and didn't last nearly as long. These Vans are cute and sturdy; they can go with jeans and a sweatshirt, or khakis and a dress shirt and look great regardless. I've worn my current pair roughly every other day for the past 9 (ish) months and they're only now starting to look a little ragged. Time for another pair!

Classic style, perfect fit, and comfy too. It's hard to find a "brown" colored canvas tennie, so thank you Van's. I inserted a Dr Scholls arch support & made them perfect for my feet. My only wish is that they made this color in the "Original Classic," style as well as this "Authentic" style. Zappos Selection and Service is outstanding, as always!

Brands I'd also recommend: Converse & Nike

I bought these for my son for Christmas per his request for a pair of Vans in black or white. I liked this style with brown because it added a little more to the look of the shoe and looks a little more casual dress style. My son has wide & flat feet and it's difficult to find shoes that fit. Vans work well for him.

Beautiful shoe and beautiful color. A typical Vans shoe, but it was on sale on Zappos vs. full price on every other website. They got here the next day, too.

Pretty waterproof and reasonably comfortable. Standard Vans. If that's what you're looking for, that's what you'll get.

Bought these for my daughter for Christmas. The color is really nice for a girl a little brighter than navy. We've always bought her actual size with Vans. Definitely would order again! Love Zappos!

Looks great. Feels great. Just make sure to get a half size up. I am a 9 and not that it didn't fit, just a very tight fit. Depending on the color you buy this is a great daily.

I purchased these as a gift. Not only did the package arrive on time, it arrived early, and in mint condition. The product itself was a success, the recipient very happy. This is a quality product.
