My just turned 7 year old son would live in these if I let him: they're one of the few pairs of shoes he's owned that he enjoys putting on himself.

The strap on one of these shoes pulled off of the shoe after about 20 wearings. Hoping it's a fluke because previous Vans have been super sturdy.

My son has had these shoes for a couple of months and loves them. He can take them on and off pretty easily and he looks good in them.

My son really likes these shoes, we have actually bought them in three different sizes. It is great to have the velcro straps when hurrying to get ready in the morning. They also don't look like other velcro strap shoes which tend to look like they are for a toddler.

Bought these for my 7 year old. At first the heel cup was a little stiff and they seemed clunky, but the heel cup got softer and the 'clunkiness' never got him down. He really likes these shoes and I like them because they make for a quick morning with the velcro straps rather than working on the shoes with laces. He has completely worn out his first pair and I'm about to order the next size up. He really likes these shoes!

Vans basically have a pretty hip rep anyway, especially paired with a pair of straight leg jeans. It's a total skateboarder look that my 6 year old loves. Adorable look, well-made shoe.

Vans shoes are great. They are comfortable for wide feet, and the Velcro is welcomed even at age 7. The best part of this review is being able to shop at Zappos. I wish I could buy everything here. I LOVE their service, and everything about their business. I need to buy stock, they are that good. If you don't like something, send it back with no questions asked. Super polite and helpful sales people also. I give them 10 stars!

Brands I'd also recommend: We like Vans for width and ease, Nike for sports related activities.

I was having terrible luck with shoes for my son until I found Vans. My son is extremely hard on shoes and was ripping a hole in the toe of other brands of shoes within two weeks of wearing them. A friend of mine recommended Vans. These shoes lasted for his entire time in this size. At the very end of wearing them, they now have holes. I am extremely happy that I found a shoe that will last until he out grows them. I only wish they had more arch and other support. My son says they are comfortable and does not notice the difference though.

Love these for that early morning rush out the door! My 6 year old takes forever to tie his shoes, which is fine on the weekends -- weekdays not so much! He loves them and has them in red. We are ordering black, too!

My 3 year old loves these shoes! I had to buy a half size larger for him, but of course the return through Zappos was a breeze! They are really comfy he says and he really enjoys the velcro which allows him to throw his own shoes on for a quick dash outside. Not good for wet weather, but clean up pretty well after the mud.

How can you go wrong with a classic Vans shoe? And the velcro is perfect for a kindergartner that does not want to waste any play time with tying shoes!

Very nice shoes. My son has large feet and doesn't always want to be bothered tying his shoes. It is very hard to find larger shoes that have velcro closures. I was happy to find nice shoes that come in larger sizes. And my experience with Zappos was wonderful as usual.

Great shoes - both my boys (ages 4 and 6) have them, and my husband has a pair with laces. So cute. But they do run big!

Great shoes for my 4 year old boy. Easy for him to get on and off, and made for skaters, so they can handle some abuse. Good price. Gotta love Zappos.
