The shoe really matches most outfits that you wear with it. It fits just as most Vans do (I have several pairs). Great shoe.

I ordered these for my brother for Christmas and he wears them every day! I originally ordered the wrong size, but the new size was shipped to me within two days. He loves them.

My 11-year-son received these shoes as a Christmas present and he really likes them. Dark navy with brown accents looks sharp and goes with all manner of pants, shorts, socks or whatever. Comfortable & durable, they are a good option instead of sneakers for school and church.

I loved these shoes as soon as I got them! The shoes have swag and they are comfortable. I asked if I could get six other pairs. I am in the fourth grade and once I got them everybody else got them, even my cousins that are 14-20 years old! The only drawback is that they are not waterproof. Other than that they are perfect. You just have to buy the classy swagger full shoes (they are also fairly cheap)! But I would say look at the price on Amazon!

Very handsome shoe. Unfortunately too narrow for my wide feet. I should have known better than to order but thought the material would give a little and I'd eventually be able to stretch them. WRONG!

I was looking for Vans to wear during the fall/winter. Wanted something chunkier/heavier; not slim line. Love these Vans! Exactly what I was looking for and very comfortable. I get so many compliments when I am wearing them! Highly recommend.

Love this shoe. The camel-colored leather tongue and heel part dresses it up a bit. As do the laces. Very happy. I am typically a size 8 womens but for Vans, I am size 7.5. I'd recommend using your European size for best fit.

I bought these for my 9th grade son. He chose them himself, his 6th pair of Vans to date. His evaluation: They're stylish and comfortable. I guess that's all you need to know. As a mom, I like that they are a neutral color (he's had the whole range!) and the little leather parts add nice detail.

My 15 year old son (with size 12.5 feet) loves Vans and they are pretty much all he wears. Bought him this pair for Fall and they look great and he loves them. The fit is always good, they're durable and look classic.

Everything about these were perfect. The fit, the look, the comfort. Definite recommend- especially as a more comfortable alternative to Chuck T's (aka converse all-stars).

These shoes are awesome. Great fit, but rubs against the heel of my foot. Went to the dollar store and got some foam heel guards, and it's all good in the neighborhood. (:

When I purchased these, I was kind of skeptical about the brown on the heel. But when I got the shoes, it was not a problem! I love these shoes! They are the most comfortable Vans that I have owned, and the style is top notch in my opinion.

I love these shoes! I wanted some cute, casual sneakers that were not comparable to Nike in price but were better looking than some Converses. These balance style, comfort, and casualness pretty well. My only complaint is that it is find to find low enough socks to go with these shoes and they look bad with higher socks. The socks have to be thin too or they rub against my heel.

I decided to retire my old Nike dunks high that I use for skateboarding and get these vans, it was the best decision that I could make. These vans have tons more grip when riding my board and are actually a lot more comfortable to wear while still providing a lot more board feel; the cup sole feels great and the inside of the shoes has enough cushioning to keep you happy for days. Last, they look great and feel like they're going to take a good beating. I highly recommend them.

I bought these for my Mom and she loved them, as did I. When I got them, she came over and tried them on but unfortunately they were a half size too small. I went onto Zappos web site right then and filled out the exchange information online. The next day, less than 15 hours later, I had the new size...even though I had just mailed the smaller sized ones out that day! I literally could not believe it...I was extremely impressed Zappos so, thank you so much for that...you know you guys rock, right? Anyways, when she tried on the right sized pair, she just loved them. They were comfortable and really cute on her. They have a nice cushion around the top edge or top line of the shoe...she said it's like walking on a cloud! All in all, great shoe, great experience.

I just got my brown leopard print Vans Era 59 delivered, put 'em on and they're perfect! A cool funky look for my collection. I'm going to skate to the store...start showing them off! Get these, they're cooler in person. Later, Tony TheStrayDog...Born in Cali, Raised in Florida...but Surfed Everywhere!

These are too cute! The pattern is bolder than the Low Pro leopard print and it has this soft cushion on the heel that I really liked. These run big. I am normally a 10.5 womens and I had to get a 10. They will need some breaking in of course but I think I will be wearing these a lot this summer!

Just as good as ever. Great for casual weekends and outings. I love the colorful trim and lining. These are my 7th pair of Vans Era (since my high school days in the early 90s).

Love these shoes! They're a bit more expensive than some Vans you can buy but the quality is worth every penny. I'm going to buy 3-4 more pairs to have on hand at all times!

I love them because they are leather and not cloth. Well, they do have cloth in the rear of the shoe but they are still perfect. Vans is a top shoe brand to me.

Awesome shoe. I got the Andorra, the dark red and yellow laces. Really cool color even better in person. I like the laces too. Wasn't crazy about them at first, but they have the same red in them too. They run the same as any other vans I've had size wise. Wore them for the whole day when I got them, no complaints with the comfort and they'll only get better. I'd say get them cool shoe.

Fantastic shoes! After getting them, I ended up taking a trip and I wore them sightseeing on the first wearing (risky I know), but I had zero issues. The shoes are true to size and are very comfortable. I wonder why in the world I didn't buy a pair of these sooner in my life. Feels like I've missed out... :)

These shoes (gingerbread) are beautiful - only thing is they run super small. I'm normally a 4.5 with a bit of space still left but with these there was no room at all, already called on for an exchange. Jeff took very good care of me.
