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.

These shoes are awesome! The colors work very well together. These shoes are a nice tan color that will go well with many different outfits. They look really good with skinny jeans. They have excellent grip too. I highly recommend these shoes.

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.

These shoes are stylish and comfortable (although they lack arch support) yet they aren't pricey. I think they are well worth anyone's money.

They were a little stiff at first, but after wearing a couple times they've broken in and are nice and comfy. I got these in Forest Night/Black suede and they're really awesome looking, a nice change from canvas. This is my first pair of Vans, they were recommended for being good for bicycling. I haven't been able to go for a ride yet, but they have great grip just walking around (and on wet pavement) and I'm sure they'll be good on the bike. Now I'm just trying to resist getting more colors.

These shoes are amazing in person. I've gotten a few compliments on them already. They are a little stiff at first, but just break them in and they'll be as comfortable as any other pair of Eras.

I like these shoes a lot. They are just what I hoped they would be. My feet are somewhat narrow and these are fine. I was concerned about buying a "unisex" style. But, I usually wear a 9 and the sizing chart was right. They fit well and I love the look.

Classic Vans look in a more grown-up suede. I prefer the padded collar on the Eras. It helps snug-up the fit and adds comfort. Not much to say about arch support - the inner is a thin foam bed that offers a bit of cushion. I like the extra touches that the 59 series offers like the dressier laces. These will work with a pair of khakis just as well as they do with cargo shorts. I came back to Vans after a very long break when I saw the Summer of 77's. I had an original pair of blue and red suede that I wore to death - Tracker trucks and Kryptonics wheels on my board and my awesome Vans on my feet. I jumped back in with the 77's and I've worn nothing but Vans since. If you want a clean, classic look in a casual shoe, you can't go wrong with Vans.

This is hands down the best site as far as S&H is concerned! Got my shoes before I woke up the next day! Crazy fast! Shoes feel great; I've been buying these for a while now and I haven't had a pair I haven't had to break in yet!

Typical accurate Era fit with some nice details, like the heel guard and the black waxed laces. I cannot wait for fall to start wearing these. A nice plus was that there was no break-in period like I have had with other Eras. They were comfortable right out of the box.
