I've been searching for gray, slim fitting (as opposed to bulky) sneakers to go with my lighter colored skinny jeans. These fit the bill. They fit my narrow feet and my sister's wide feet comfortably. Doesn't have much arch support, so power-walking or taking long walks may be out of the question. I haven't had much of a problem walking for hours in these though, but I do walk calmly. And so should you.

I wanted to finally buy a pair of shoes that were made better than many of the $10-15 shoes I was buying from cheap stores in the mall, so I bought a pair of Vans. Unfortunately, after daily wear for no more than two months, they are completely falling apart. I couldn't believe how quickly they were wearing...faster than my cheap canvas shoes! I thought Vans was supposed to be reliable.

I'm a size 7 3/4 technically and I buy these in an 8. They fit fine and every single one of the 5 pairs that I have, started having a giant hole right above the big toe. Need a little bit of breaking in and last for forever. Order a half size up.

We have ordered this brand and style, for a female, with slight variance several times and have found it a very difficult fit. In this case, the opening is too large around the ankle and doesn't look good.

This shoe is great. The shoe is true to size, it's comfortable, and looks stylish. The comfort may not last too long, but you do get what you pay for at the price point.

I love these shoes, they are my babies. They were my first pair of Vans I ever bought and I just now bought another pair because I'm so happy with them. Zappos did a fantastic job at making sure I got my shoes on time and it was just a fantastic experience. Love them!

These shoes are super cute, I have been wearing them with skinny jeans and shorts. I love the color and style. Vans have never been that comfortable to me because I have a high arch and these shoes have no arch support whatsoever. But they are stylish and cute.

I have always had great experiences with Zappos. The shoes arrive on or before the promised date and are exactly what I expect them to be. I have never regretted a purchase from Zappos.com.

I've bought several pair of vans shoes and have been totally satisfied with the right size right color and they were shipped to me faster than they should've been would not hesitate to go again. Thanks to Zappos I can leave the malls alone when I'm shopping for my daughter's shoes. It's even more fun when they have a better color selection online than they would at any store.

I bought these shoes for the summer and are WAY too big. I am a true 7.5 and these felt more like an 8.5. They were also narrow so going down a size would not be an option. Cute shoe if youhave really narrow feet.

I've had these sneakers for about a year now. They fit me really well--I seem to have a narrow heel and wide toes, and it's hard to find a shoe that fits around my heel without squashing my toes. They're also very comfortable and good for walking around all day. I think this is that rare sneaker that fits in with skirts and dresses. Quality is just okay. By this point, there's a large rip in the side of the shoe where the canvas meets the rubber. I'd think about buying these again, but might try some different brands to see if I can find something more durable.

Great, simple shoes that can be worn with all kinds of outfits. Love the color! I needed to buy those heel padding inserts that you stick on to the backs of shoes though because it was rubbing against my skin, but otherwise, I would recommend these shoes!

This is my second pair of Vans Authentic Lo Pros (in pop turquoise/black). I also have the hot coral that came out 2 summers ago. They really are the perfect summer shoe. I wear them with everything; dresses, jeans, shorts, work pants, whatever. They are light weight so they don't feel heavy and hot when the weather is warm and humid, and I like to wear low cut socks (vans & Steve Madden make some great ones) with them if its cooler out or if I feel like some added cushion. I especially like them for commuting by bicycle because they are way more comfortable than sandals for biking, but they are still cute enough to wear with cute summer outfits. One thing to note is the arch support is more low than moderate, which doesn't bother me b/c I have pretty low arches anyway. As many cute heels & wedges as I own, these are always my go-to-comfy-all-purpose summer shoe! I plan on several more pairs of these in the future!

I've worn Vans all my life, but if you are looking for a nice, low profile, more feminine version of their skate shoes, this is THE shoe. I actually have a few pairs, but I purchased the jellyfish pattern about a month ago and I've worn them everyday. Never had a problem with blisters and I wear these without socks, mostly. I wear a size 9 and I generally have a narrow foot. These run true to size and break in quite easily after a week or two. I also have high arches and have put arch supports in when wearing them to walk around in. Otherwise, these shoes are the best. I think I'll buy more in the future too. They look great with everything and the different patterns make them especially unique. Expect compliment!

I had purchased the original van authentic in black and thought I would try the Lo Pro (which was more womanly). It fit great, very comfortable, but the toe box must be different enough as they wore sores on the top of my second toe when I wore them without socks. Perhaps they will be fine in fall & winter when I want to wear socks, but right now -- they will wait for fall. Sorry, but thanks.

Love this shoe! True to size. The canvas stretches a little after some wear, but not badly. Be sure to Scotchgard them to keep them clean! I added some inserts to give them a little more support.

Recently bought them. Wore them to the zoo without socks. They seemed too true to fit to put socks on and you can see them...which I don't like. They ripped up the backs of my feet...but I guess I was running into that issue. But they are so cute!

I was having a hard time deciding between Vans and Converse sneakers. I like the way Converse look on other people, but not on me. The Vans are just a little more slender and just look better to me on my feet. I also needed to try the low profile versions of both brands because the regular styles hit me at my ankle bone and hurt. Both these Vans and the Converse low profile styles were very comfortable for me. But the Vans seem to have a more cushy insole and a bit more arch support, which I liked better. I ended up keeping the gray Vans (great versatile color) and I found them to be true to size. I normally wear a 7.5 and bought my usual size and they fit. I have slender feet so I often need to wear a narrow shoe but these fit fine in the medium. I think for anyone with a normal medium foot they will still be fine but if you have a wide foot the normal medium size will likely be too narrow in this style. I bought them to be able to wear without socks but I could wear them with a normal/thin sock if I wanted to and they would still fit fine.

These are great shoes. I have multiple pairs that I wear interchangeably. They are incredibly comfortable and look good with almost everything you wear. I would highly suggest these for anyone who likes the style of these and wants the comfort of a good shoe.
