These are good looking shoes, the leather laces look polished; however, they are really stiff and hurt my feet, I'm still trying to beak these in and will probably switch the laces to Normal white ones. They also run on the big side.

Bought these for my ten year old daughter & she absolutely loves them. She wears a size 8 in women's and these were a half size too big, luckily her foot grew quickly and they were only slightly loose for just a few weeks. She plays hard on recess and says these are super comfortable. They look very nice...might get me a pair, too!

Gorgeous color! Works for male or female. My son loves them and so do all his friends. Not many people have this particular color, so you're kind of a stand out, in a good way!

Comfortable, cute and made so well. The arch support is just right for those with a higher arch and need for support.

Vans are my go-to shoes; I have six pair. This pattern is edgy but cute at the same time and the skulls crack me up. I love the bright pink laces and trim. Very comfy.

from Franklin, NH

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zappos.com. I received product samples to facilitate my review. A few months back my stepdaughter asked us for new sneakers. Specifically either Converse, Keds or Vans. Up until now, we haven't been able to afford them because money has been extremely tight. (Weddings and vacations aren't cheap.) When the chance arose to get her these, I jumped at it. At first I looked at a different pair on here that had a different color and I took a picture and showed it to her and said my cousin wanted my stepdaughter's opinion to see if her own daughter would like them. My stepdaughter said yes. Little did she realize I was trying to make sure if we got her a pair she would be happy. When I saw this hot pink pair I knew these were the exact ones I had to get. When they came in and she saw the box, she squealed in delight. They really are as bright of a pink as shown in the photo which is great since she LOVES pink. The only issue I had was that the shoes are a little too big but that's because I listened to her when it came to the size she needed, and she told me the wrong size. It's no biggie, though. With thicker socks they won't be bad. Plus, her feet are going to grow this year so they will fit for awhile.

I really liked the color, but these sneakers were not comfortable at all, after 2 hours wearing them (with socks) I ended with blisters on the back of the ankle and top of the feet from the laces, even wearing them loosely tied.

These shoes really look great, but that is about it. They rubbed my feet raw through my socks and were very uncomfortable. These shoes are made for looks not comfort. Zappos did a fantastic job getting them to me in a timely fashion so I can never really complain there. Basically this shoe is made to look good not feel good.

These are all-time classic shoes. They are well constructed and fit true to size. I like them because they can be worn in casual situations with a pair of shorts and a t-shirt or you can class them up a bit with dark jeans, a casual shirt and a blazer.

I absolutely love Vans and I was super excited on getting the aqua ones, so I ordered them off zappos in my normal shoe size but when the shoes came they were ginormous (and they looked really wide)! I was not sure if they just ran big or they sent me the wrong size but in the end I just returned them and then got them one side smaller than before and they fit perfectly! So beware they run really big!

Grabbed a pair in Dress Blue and they look great! A rich dark blue simple shoe that doesn't look feminine or childish (in my opinion at least as a late 20 something guy). The canvas and soles also feel substantial and are as comfortable as you'd expect from flat affordable canvas shoes. Compared to converse these felt at least as comfortable for light walking and the canvas was similar. A great choice for summer! It's also worth noting I tried multiple pairs and they all fit a half size smaller than my Nike's and Converse. Having never worn Van's before I did not expect the top canvas of the shoe to be pressing against the top of my big toe. They're surprisingly short in the toes as you can tell from the side on pictures. They quickly became uncomfortable because of the inability to move ones toes or step without bending the entire shoe, even with the appropriate 1/2" from the end of the shoe. I tried moving up in size until they were sliding around when walking and it's still an issue and a deal breaker. I've never experienced this before in any other brand and found very few others with the same issue so maybe it's just me but it's worth a thought if it's a concern of yours. Thankfully Zappos has that amazing return policy! Thanks Zappos, you're the best.

This is my third pair of Vans, and I really enjoy them. I wear them with pretty much anything, and no one ever makes fun of me, so I guess that's cool.

Great color and very comfortable to wear for several hours. Needs a bit of arch support but it can easily fit extra insoles.
