Cute, fun shoes--I only wear occasionally as a novelty. There isn't any arch support so I'm not comfortable wearing them all day when I'm on my feet at work. A bit pricey considering the number of times I've worn them.

Love these vans! Very comfortable and look great paired with jeans. The color seems to be adaptable - sometimes they seem a lot more blue than grey, depending on the color of pants you were.

I love the look of these as I was looking for something really fun, but casual to wear. They are a little bit stiff, but hoping they loosen up with more wear.

These shoes are really stylish and pretty comfortable. They are a bit heavier than most shoes I own and for the small sizes at least, seem to run rather large. 1/2 to potentially full size larger if you get the women's 5. However, that's the smallest size, and I didn't return them since I like them and most brands don't make shoes that fit me :) I like that they are very easy to tighten and tie. I have only had them a few weeks so can't speak to how long they last, but I haven't ruined them yet, so that's a good sign.

I LOVE the look of these shoes. They're adorable and go with everything. However, they seem to be falling apart way faster than they should. I think it has to do with the sparkly material they're made out of - after a few weeks of normal wear (walking through a city) they look pretty trashed. Disappointing because I loved them so much fresh out of the box.

These are overall exactly what you'd expect form tradition Vans with one great twist, they have metal tipped laces! I always end up messing up my laces and these will total prevent that. It is such a little detail but just so peftect!

This is a great shoe. However, the size ran large for my foot. I've learned that Vans sizes run differently for some of their shoes of the same size.

Nice shoe. However, difficult to fit as these seem to be men's sizes and too roomy for a non wide foot. Too bad-love the stripes.

I'm female and wanted to match a pair of Vans I have that enable me to wear short (below the ankle) socks without looking dorky. I have to wear orthotic inserts which require socks. So after Zappos so kindly sent me a pair of Vans "Authentic" and a pair of Vans "Era," I realize that on both models, the laces are much lower on the top of the foot, and the sides are much lower, meaning my white shorty socks are pretty high up and- yep- it looks really dorky. So to get a pair of Vans that look okay with shorty socks, stick to an Atwood style of Vans. Also, the toe box is significantly lower on the Authentics than on the Atwood, with less room above the toe.

These are my happy shoes! Adorable print, typical Vans, true-to-size fit. No, no arch support (why only 4 stars for comfort), but they're not meant for walking. Fast shipping from Zappos, as always.

Bought these for my 10-year old granddaughter after the slip-on style proved much too narrow. By the time I re-ordered the tie style (a day later) she had changed her mind about wanting the "doughnut shoes" and wanted these instead (because they are pink, her favorite color). These shoes are a hit, they fit perfect on her slightly wide foot. She wears a big kids size 4 but I ordered an adult size 5 for this style and they fit fine. She says she plans to wear them every day until school is out.

These cannot be beat! Authentics are the way to go, for Vans! I wanted the floral print, but they did not have my size 10... I had never tried the Authentics before, so I went with a 9.5, just hoping they would fit because I HAD TO HAVE THE FLORAL PRINT! They fit me PERFECT! I wear 10's in other Vans styles, so I would say these run a 1/2 size bigger because they fit like 10's. I feel like these run a BIT wider, perhaps? I struggle with width... but these fit perfectly, and they did not feel like I would need to 'break them in' like the other styles I have worn. 10/10! I love these shoes!

VERY glittery!! I bought these thinking they would have a slight shimmer and they were straight glitter. Pretty shoe, but not for a 30-something year old like me.

These are very cute shoes, but oddly sized. I normally wear an 8½M, but with this shoe my heel slipped right out when I walked. I got the size 8M but they are a little snug. I am still not sure if I will keep these. I like them to fit right out of the box.

I love these shoes. Very comfortable. I need wide shoes for comfort and since these are unisex, they seem roomier. I love zappos. No regrets.

Not for wide feet. After a month-long attempt with one size because I love the look so much, I tried a hail-mary going up a 1/2 size to no avail. Feels okay for an hour or two, maybe even a day at the office. But walk the dog or do something that requires 20-30 minutes of walking and you'll quickly understand why this shoe is not going to work anatomically. Still rating high because it looks and feels great, at least at the beginning. Can't blame the shoes for my wide feet.

I loved getting these shoes from Zappos. The customer service was amazing and even got a hand written thank you card for my purchase for my sons 1st birthday donut themed party. These shoes were perfect and loved by all. Comfortable and such a cute design with the donuts.
