Love these shoes. Comfortable without socks. The color is a little darker than shown, but still nice. Great summer shoe.

I am really happy with my order. They came right away, before my vacation and they are very comfortable. I wil order from Zappos.com again in the future.

If you're gonna get these shoes for long boarding, i would definitely buy it because they feel so good! be prepared to see some wear after 2 months on your pushing shoe but that's after some very hard use. I really love these shoes but I would like it if the back of the shoe was a little stiffer and gripped your heel more but other than that these are amazing, very true to size!

So cute and retro. I got the Spicy Orange, and the color is perfect for summer. And they're more comfortable than Converse! For those of us used to choosing Chuck Taylors as a go-to sneaker, the arch support in these Vans is light-years ahead simply by being there at all. There's a bit of an arch! It makes such a difference! Those folks used to the arch support in running shoes might be disappointed, however, and would do well to follow the advice of one of the other reviewers, and get some Dr. Scholls' or some such.

I love these shoes! I originally ordered a size 10-1/2, but Van's seem to run a bit smaller, so I called Zappos and they rather quickly replaced the size 10-1/2 with a size 11; perfect fit! I am very pleased with Zappos!

These are the cutest shoes! bright, perky, 'happy' shoes. I bought them for my tween granddaughter and she loved them and as always, the purchase was enhanced by Zappos' exemplary shipping policies and customer service.

Love these shoes. Always love Vans but these lace-ups look great with jeans, skirts and shorts. The color will cross seasons. Originally wanted slip ons but this color won me over.

Value and quality are what you get from Zappos. With all the fancy running shoes out there, all I wanted was a good, old-fashioned tennis shoes in colors. And Zappos has VANS! I now have 4 pairs in 4 different colors. How cool is that?

These shoes are love. I bought them to replace my black Converse All-stars which finally wore out and were falling apart. But guess what? These guys were way comfier than the Converse. They are super cute, they go with almost everything in my wardrobe (and if they don't I just wear it anyway), and they are very true to size.

\r\nGreat and simple canvas shoe. If you wash them and treat them well you can get years of wear out of these guys. This is my third pair and I always get compliments on the color.

These Vans are a great fit and have that nice "Old School" kind of vibe. They are very comfortable, too! As usual, Zappos service was outstanding!

Well, I'm 34 years old and these are my 1st pair of Vans and I love them! I got them in Pink Lightning and have gotten several compliments on the color, they're pretty bright! And comfortable too! I also ordered a pair of the Pink Vans for my 18 month old and they are adorable too!

Great transaction. Received items less than 36 hours after order without paying for overnight shipping. Niece was thrilled with the shoes. They were well packaged, the correct size, and the correct price was charged to my debit card. I didn\'t know what retailers sold the shoes in Indy, so this was a great alternative to skulking around the mall during the Christmas buying season. Will definitely check again the next time she wants something trendy that I know nothing about. I can\'t comment as to fit because they were a gift.

These shoes are great for skateboarding, and just wearing around. You will defiantly get some style points with these on. They are very comfortable, too. Although if your going to skate in them, I would not recommend jumping down any huge stairs or gaps in them.

I love these shoes. They go with pretty much everything including my private school uniform. I am reviewing the really bright neon blue ones, but I also have them in black, white, and purple. Zappos delivered them in 5 business and I've seen reviews that say they came overnight, but I think that was just because where I live. The down about these shoes are that the fabric this is made of is very thin and if you are a person who moves your toes a lot it messes up the shoe (like what happened to me). But other than that I love these shoes and will definitely buy more in the future and tell my friends about Zappos!

My daughter loves these Vans (red/burgundy checkerboard), and like all Vans Authentics, they fit true to size and are comfortable for a non-athletic sneaker.

About the shoe: We have purchased Vans Authentics before; we like them a lot and we checked the shoe sizes we had bought in a store before ordering. The Authentics we received were a bit bigger that the ones of the same size we had purchased a few months before in a store. They were great in every other way and we simply exchanged them for the size smaller, which worked out fine and quickly! That said, we ordered a pair of Vans Eras at the same time in the smaller of the sizes (as prior store experience dictated). The size of the Authentics ran the same as the size of the Eras. (In the past, we saw a difference between them.) About Zappos: This was my first time using Zappos.com and I was so satisfied! Shipping was fast. Customer service was polite, pleasant and human! The items ordered were great. I have already recommended Zappos to a friend who has since ordered two pairs of boots and to a stranger in a supermarket who was wondering where we got the shoes! (We live in a small town and so do not have the selection larger places offer.) I am confident recommending Zappos, as I know that if the customer is not satisfied, Zappos will make it right!
