Great shoes. The footbed is well cushioned, with a pleasant, slightly squishy feeling. I chose to add some gel inserts because I preferred some additional arch support, but there is some. The shoes look cool, made of a nice leather. All in all, a good purchase. And Zappos is a pleasure to deal with.

These shoes are great! Unlike the Vans Slip-on that I could barely get my foot in regardless of size, these fit very easily. I've walked inordinate distances in a single day without getting uncomfortable. The canvas has started to crease white but they're very soft, light and tight.

Love, love, love these shoes. Everything about the fit is perfect. Only downfall was it darkened my white socks when worn, so I switched to dark no-show socks.

I bought these a couple weeks ago and I love them! They are so comfortable you could sleep with them on. I had many compliments on mine. I am planning to buy more very soon. This is a definite yes!

Really comfy, and they look amazing. The color is just what I wanted. I swapped out the black laces for some red ones and these are now my favorite shoes!

These are my first really low Vans, usually going for the old school Skate Hi. I thought they might be slightly too small at first, but after wearing them around the house they felt fine. The cushion has a weird feeling, sort of uneven on my foot, then it flattens after a minute and they are comfortable. Totally digging these shoes and wearing them out more often.

I have four pairs of Vans Authentic and Zappos is the only place to buy them. The customer service is the best and I mean that in the most literal way. No other company treats their customers with the respect like they do. Like I said I have four pairs of these bad boys (pewter, black, off white, and neon yellow) and love everyone of them. They feel great, look great and when you get a crazy color people are jealous when they see them. For shoes that are so expensive you cannot beat that. If you buy Vans, buy them from Zappos. If you do not see your color call them and they are willing to keep you in the loop and will try to get the color you want. Plus did I mention the ultra fast shipping? Not one bad experience, I will be a Zappos customer for life.

One of the best shoes I have ever purchased. they stay clean cause of the leather, and just look all around nice. Surprisingly comfortable given how flat they are, would by this shoe again once these pair wear out. Favorite pair of shoes I own.

These are my favorite pair of shoes. I purchased them in black denim, and they match everything! If you wear low-cut socks, they do show a bit. If you have socks for Converse, they'll work with these too. The construction of the shoe is very well-made, and I can tell they'll last me a while! These shoes are super comfortable out of the box, and they get even better after a couple days of wearing them! I walked miles in these in Washington, D.C. and my feet were hardly sore. They fit true to size - I wear a women's 10 and the 10 in these fit perfect. Go buy these shoes if you haven't already. You'll love them!

This is the most durable pair of Vans I've had so far. The last pair was chambray cloth and was the least durable pair I'd ever had. I love these!

The best, most durable shoe I've found for BMX. I've tried newer bike/skate shoes and Vans remain unbeatable.

These look clean! If you like the canvas authentic vans, and want something a little more sophisticated, I would recommend a pair of leather vans!

The reviews are accurate and these fit and feel nice after breaking them in, just like most Vans. I got the Suede Dark Shadow and they definitely stand apart from other black shoes in a good way. My second pair of shoes bought off Zappos, and they are not kidding with the free shipping. Rock on, Zappos!

After going to 3 stores at our nearby mall and being told my size was not in stock, I came home and looked on Zappos for my shoes. Of course they had my size, color and style I was looking for. Although the stores all said they could order me shoes, that would have taken twice as long and another trip to the mall. Instead my shoes were at my front door in 2 days and I wore them before I would have had them otherwise! The price was the same and shipping was free, so I actually think I saved money buying them online. Thanks Zappos!

You just cannot go wrong here. They will get lots of compliments as people love the purple. It pops in all the right ways - and goes with just about everything - jeans, shorts, khakis, I have even rocked these with suit pants. They are just beyond rad. The purple fades over time giving it an even cooler shade. These are big overall winners.

These hard-to-find shoes are perfect (especially for lovers of purple). They are comfortable and the sequins stay on. Also, the Zappos super service was, as usual, perfect.

They are comfortable. They have a cool style for youngsters and for adults is an OK casual wear. They last for a long time.

Zappos is awesome. The shoes I bought for my daughter were too small. I called Zappos and they sent me a new pair the next day! They emailed me a return shipping label, I put it on the old box, and dropped it off at the UPS store. We received the new ones before I even dropped off the old ones. Zappos rocks!
