Great shoe for running out to play and no laces but no baby velcro. Not to mention that the surfer next door has the same shoe...cool factor is huge!

I bought these for my 5 year old son - these are so cute and look so cute on - but literally within 3 or 4 days of wearing them, the insoles came unglued and rolled up stuck together making them unwearable for my son. I guess we try to rip the rest out and can buy new insoles but for the amount of money I was very disappointed how quickly they fell apart. It was my first time buying actual Vans brand and sadly I won't be doing so again.

Loved our shoes! Fit is great but they do run big as Zappos suggested. Zappos was great as we had to try a few sizes.

This was my first experience shopping with Zappos. Not only did I find the sneakers that I couldn't find elsewhere but the service was impeccable. Customer service rocks! I am sold! I have recommended Zappos to everyone. Definitely highly recommended! My purchase literally came the next day! Thank you so much!

These shoes are wonderful! Easy to put on, and my son thinks they're super comfortable. Zappos is amazing; I ordered late afternoon, and received the shoes the next morning! How is that possible? Love you guys!

My 5-1/2 year grandson requested these shoes for Christmas and he loves them! They look great "Spicoli" from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and are good quality. He says they're comfortable, too.

My five year old loves these shoes and so do I since he can just slop them on. They are a great quality product. Zappos provided quick shipment and they were cheaper than what I would have paid at a local store. This was another great Zappos experience.

These are easy slip-on, slip-off (no laces!) sneakers for kids (girls or boys) and I did find they ran big. I probably ordered a half size too large to begin with but needed to get a true size as they ran a half size larger. Also, a bit wide but my child may have a narrow foot. I put an arch support inside to help fill up the shoe and give him a bit of extra support, but I wore these as a teenager and am a forever fan of Vans!

Good fit, kids like them and a good value. These do seem to fall apart after a hard-worn season at just the time my son is ready for the next size.

My 6 year old loves these! I was worried he might not be able to "run" in them but they fit perfectly and he was able to run and play just fine. I did get a size smaller as noted in previous reviews. I'm definitely getting the next size when he grows out of his current ones.

Great shoe...but, I already knew that. This shoe is perfect for my preschooler...I it's durable, comfy, and looks cool. I've been wearing vans since the 80's, so I pleased to find them for my son. Zappos is the best place to shop on the net.

A Classic Shoe For Classic Kids - This shoe NEVER goes out of style and is worth every penny. The perfect slip-on to look cool and be cool at home, school or grandma's. The size is right and so are the new styles and patterns. We love this shoe for everything we do!

Vans remain a classic - The shoes were good quality and good price. They tend to run on the large size [possibly even a whole size larger] than most shoes. Other than that they were great and my son loves them!

This is the hot shoe for kids! I have three children and I purchased a pair of these vans, in different colors, for each of them. After my daughter wore them to school, her friend liked them so much that he asked her where she purchased them. We told him ZAPPOS! He had his mom go online and he got his Vans in two days! Great service, great shoe!

surfer kid - My son loves his new checkerboard vans. He thinks he is the coolest kid in his class because he is the only one who has a pair. They fit true to size and are very comfortable. And they look great with any outfit you chose.
