Love this pair of shoes! This is a very comfortable shoe. It is, in my opinion, true to size and width.

Casual Comfort and Style - Have been getting a ton of compliments on these shoes. The brown color goes with pretty much everything, from shorts to jeans and khakis. I can even get away with wearing them to work.

Flakey - The material inside the shoe at the toe started to peel off (came unglued?) on the 2nd day I wore the shoe. I really wish Zappos would give me a new replacement shoe, cuz I KNOW it was just that shoe. I've had Vans all my life and never remember that happening - At least not so quickly.

Good Stuff - These shoes are the definition of classic. They are plain but still comfortable. For this price you should buy one of each color. They can be worn anywhere with anything. Simply beautiful.

Just like I remember them. These old school Vans fit great right out of the box. A rugged and durable shoe. They will last you a long time. Be sure and wash them in cold water only, and then let them air dry. Otherwise the canvas material may be discolored by the rubber sole of the shoe. These are really awesome shoes man.

Classic vans - These shoes uphold typical Vans quality, with a unique yet stylish design. They are simple and comfortable. They are made for those who enjoy classic (old school) style with new exterior patterns

Bought these for my daughter and my son for Christmas. Both pairs have already started to wear out quite a bit. The rubber has separated from the canvas on both pairs right at the ball of their foot.

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 shows are not only fashionable, but functional too. Whether your skating around or just chilling, these kicks can pull it off. While these flats are comfortable, arch support suffers a bit. The first thing that will go on these shoes is the laces, followed closely by the insoles.

Timeless classic. I got these for my 12 year old daughter and she loves them. It was hard to pry her out of her Osiris's but she wanted a cool sneaker she could wear in the summer so I turned her onto my go to kicks I've been wearing since I was her age. They fit her true to size, don't slip in the heel like some shoes do and they go with everything...shorts, clam diggers, sundresses, jeans, you name it. She loves them, never complains about her feet being tired when I have to drag her around shopping (so they saved my life too). Vans for life!

When I saw these, I had to get them for my husband. Rad was his favorite shoe as a kid. Needless to say, he loved them and are tried and true as all other Vans.

These are fabulous shoes but unfortunately the right shoe was too tight in width...not shoes' fault but my own "unique" feet! I loved the bright neon pink color and it truly saddens me to have to return them.
