Okay, let me give you a review of this shoe from a skateboarder’s perspective. On the whole, this shoe is pretty fantastic. The look is totally classic and they feel like they aren’t even there. Waffle grip is the best, these have amazing grip on a board. ON THE OTHER HAND… when you start to skate these… skate them hard… they fall apart very quickly!

Great looking shoe.It is very comfy but if you have narrow feet you might wanna downsize half a size since they run a tad bit bigger.

Good looking shoe, that is a little too narrow in the front for me. I skate some version of TNTs normally (last 4 pairs of shoes) and got these because I like Vans, but the front is narrow and won't break in. Not so bad that I don't wear them, but just a little warning.

Vans Chukka Low's - These shoe's are awesome for board feel, however they start to shred up very fast. That lining that goes all around specifically closer to the toecap gets destroyed. The sides of the Chima Ferguson colorway are canvas, so it gets pretty scuffed up as well. Overall they start to rip fast but hold up well, at least until your next paycheck.

Brands I'd also recommend: Vans Half-Cab's, Lakai Howard Select, any other similar shoes by these brands.

Poor build quality. Parts of the shoe are already coming apart, especially around the sole. Very long, but thin.

These are a little bit of a let down. These are generally great shoes, but canvas and thin. Also they squeak. These are still a good pair to have as backup shoes.

These shoes look good and are fairly comfortable. They offer very little support and barley any cushion for your feet. If you must skate vans I would suggest the TNT shoes or Half Cabs. These are better for looking cool in your tight girl pants.

The shoe looks abnormally long and narrow for a size 9.0. I guess "good board feel" means no arch support. You can literally feel pebbles and rocks on your feet as you walk. These shoes are very uncomfortable. Too bad because their style is unique and I was really wanting to like them.

I wore these shoes for about two weeks but the color started to fade where any crease from walking occurred. Now on the front of the shoe there's white lines. If I had had these for at least a year, I would understand, but this was after a short time of wearing them. Very disappointed.

I just wanted a comfortable, good looking shoe for doing nothing in, and maybe some skateboarding in. These fit the bill. And they have RAD Nintendo icons all over the inside, if you care. I just like them because they are black and gray. Buy them. Buy them NOW!

I've been a Vans wearer since my skateboard days back in the 80s. My favorites of late have been Atwoods, but I ventured to another style because I was looking for brown shoes that were just a bit less casual. These feel good, but are chunkier than some of the Atwood models. The laces are just the right length to prevent them from dragging on the ground.

These are great! They have a little bit of padding in the right places. True to size, and comfortable all around, I would recommend these to friends.

Love these. The footbed on these is softer than skate sneaks of yesteryear. They hold up well too. My first pair are over a year old and the upper never separated from the sole. Good investment!

The skater shoe but slim and doesn't protrude. I was looking for a slim and low profile show like a Converse Allstar or Vans slipOn/Original, but also a shoe with more padding on the tongue and maybe ankle. This show can look like a skater shoe but also tied tight, a comfortable everyday shoe.

I've owned this pair of shoes for a whole year now. They've held up to everything from cutting down trees in a forest, digging trenches in the mud, to basic street wear. The shoe only has one small hole in the side and some sole wear after an entire year. Highly recommend this to anyone.

Great shoe... Sole has enough cushion to feel comfortable with such low sides of the shoe. I previously had mid tops (which would be used to skateboard) and after switching to these Its safe to say you can skate them right out of the box. Great feel overall. Very fast shipping too thanks!!

I love these shoes. I wear them several times a week to work. They are comfortable and durable. I've owned a pair of similar shoes by Etnies and they never measured up. Highly recommend for that laid back but classic look.

These looked silly right out of the box, but now that the shine is off the white laces & the stitching I like them a lot. Now I'd say they're a little too safe, stylistically. But they are comfy and durable and inexpensive. Big soles, plenty thick for scraping up on a skateboard.

I've been an Old Skool man for years, but decided to switch it up and get these instead. The tongue is padded, which is good for comfort. The look sick, and have the Vans soles that I love. When I buy Vans I usually just go for the era core classic, but wanted to try these out. They have a lot more stability to them than classic vans, and the tongue padding is nice. I wore these for a whole week abroad where I walked many miles each day. They kept my feet feeling pretty good. My heels got pretty sore though! For a shoe that is more skateable it would be nice if they changed the inserts to have more padding. All around a great shoe!
