I had to return the first pair I bought because I ordered the wrong size and their costumer service was wonderful. I got the new pair in just 2 days. As for the shoe itself, I have to say I love the style. I came to Zappos because the Vans website only had these in sizes 10 and up (men). Not only did I find them in my size here, they were cheaper than the Vans website. (And no shipping cost) The shoe is like all other vans, they aren't very soft and may take some breaking in. The style is great and I have gotten compliments on how unique they are. I would definitely recommend.

Love these shoes! Cute with jeans and shorts. Took a few weeks to fully break them in...the back doesn't have much give and is very stiff so it took a while till I could wear them without getting blisters (no socks). I have a very high arch so there is absolutely zero support, but with an insole they will be even more comfy. Plan on getting multiple pairs!

Typical Vans product. It is worth mentioning that the black fades after any rubbing or scrubbing. So yeah, don't get them dirty.

Very nice look and feel, except like leather/pleather there's a breaking in period, but after that they're true to fit.

Awesome pair of classic Vans. The colors really pop. I bought them as a gift for my sister. I would advise going half a size down.

Dad o

from Fairfax, VA

Only found this unique style on Zappos and not even in our local Vans store. My daughter has been asked by many people where she got them and I'm sorry to report that she deflects the question with "not sure...my dad got them for me". Doesn't want everyone getting in on her find! Excellent ease finding what she wanted, sizes, color, and best for me was the PRICE, SERVICE, and SPEEDY DELIVERY! Always awesome. As for the shoes and they're original Vans. Simple style, not a lot of arch support, great durability and they usually are a little wider than other shoes (just a bit).

from Eugene, OR

Like they look, these shoes are a little wider than most (makes sense, they're unisex) and they are pretty flat. However, I wear them all day walking around campus, and they're really comfortable, and I love the color. They have cushioned soles, but these shoes would not be good for someone that needs a lot of arch support. One complaint: they squeak when I walk. Not sure if it's just me, Converse tend to do the same thing.

It's a Vans Authentic. Some canvas shaped like a shoe that'll last a year, maybe. That said, I haven't worn anything else since I can remember nor have I shopped inside an actual shoe store in equally as long. Why bother when you got Zappos? Ultimate selection, free shipping - can't beat it.

Great for casual/vacation wear. Fit was good with limited support, but that is not a surprise. They stayed clearer and the fabric appears more durable than expected. I am very happy with them.

As usual a good shoe. Just a cool twist to a classic. Gold eyelets are an awesome accent along with the gum sole. Great for casual wear or slightly dressed up!

I love these shoes! I used to wear these as a kid, and they haven't changed much in 30 years. Still no nonsense and comfortable. And they look great with or without socks, with jeans or shorts. They run a little big though. I had to order a half size smaller than I wear in Nikes and most dress shoes.

I love these shoes! They were true to size and were comfortable the minute I put them on! I am on my feet all day and they are awesome! Zappos has the best customer service too! I order all of my son's shoes from Zappos, and I love that I get them the very next day with free returns if they don't work out. I am a very happy customer!

I bought these shoes for my grand-daughter. Since we live in different states we texted back a forth a zillion times trying to pick the right shoe in the right color. After she decided on the pair shown, it was then up to me to find the shoes at the best price and right size. I remembered buy from your site before so I gave it a try. Yes, there they were right size, right price, and right free shipping. She loves them and they are perfect. I was afraid they would be too narrow for her because she has a wide foot but they fit great. Love your online site. Thanks!

I love these shoes! They're pretty comfy, though the seam between the laces and the front toe area does rub on the top of my foot and irritates it a bit when I wear them without socks. Nothing to prevent me from wearing them, though! The shape is great, very versatile. I also love the tiger print - gets me compliments all the time.

I ordered these for my teenage kid, loves them! And the basic shipping is incredibly fast! I would say they run about a half of size too big but other than that, perfect.

This is my first pair of Vans and they are so comfortable. What have I been missing all these years? I was afraid they wouldn't fit because of the mens/womens sizing but I followed the chart and they were perfect. I can't wait to buy some more!

I absolutely adore these and the color, the style, the fit, everything! I'm a mom and I need to run around after my kids, but I want to be stylish while doing and these shoes definitely give me that. I receive many compliments on the purple color, which is my favorite and true to the image on the website. I love these.

This is a great 'run around' shoe. It does not accommodate my orthotic though. If you don't have foot problems, this is a wonderful shoe.
