These shoes (in the dachshund brown) are the most ridics comfy shoes I've ever owned. I have bony feet and feel pressure points in everything. Not these. I forget I'm wearing them all the time. Sleek and supple as a sexy seal too. Worth buying x 2. (Waterproof/stainproof the suede ASAP.)

I was pretty happy w/ this purchase. I have always rocked Vans and always will. However this pair somehow just fell to pieces after about a month of wear. I am back on Zappos to buy another pair of Vans, just not the Rata Vulcs.

Very comfortable and casual shoe! The photo makes them look like they are more of a high top, when in reality they're a very low cut shoe. The fabric is comfortable enough to not wear socks. The shoe does get loose around the heel after several wears.

These shoes are great! They formed to my foot within a day. They're soft and go well casual or dressed up. The suede ones are really nice too. They fit true to size.

My 17 year old son really likes these shoes. They are as comfortable as his other Vans, but a little dressier. Nice materials, well made!

Pretty decent beach shoes, not a lot of arch support and definitely thin material. For those with slightly wider feet, this might feel a little tight.

These shoes are very stylish and comfortable. I've gotten compliments on them. They're a little low, so I have to fold the bottom of my jeans up once so that they don't touch the ground. They look awesome with shorts, too.

Really comfortable. You can wear it with or without socks, though I did start to get a blister without socks. The foam insert is super comfy. Not a whole lot of arch support, but it hasn't given me any problems. Also, if you think your feet aren't quite done growing yet you may want to go up a half size because it's slightly smaller than marked. Overall, a very good value.

Fantastic shoes, and just nice enough to get by wearing them at work and not hearing anything from HR. Though I have to wear socks in them at work they feel wonderful without them. They seem to stretch a slight bit because of the hemp and I wish I had gotten a half size smaller.

I love these shoes! Really can't think of anything that I don't like about them - and they are super fly! The only bad part is occasionally, one of them will feel a little tight - but I just loosen up the laces!

I bought these shoes for my boyfriend and he loves them! He already had them in three other different colors, and he always tells me how comfortable they are. Not only that, but Zappos is amazing, and I received them the day after ordering them, FOR FREE!

These have got to be one the best pairs of Vans I have ever owned. The hemp material for the shoe is practically broken in right away, and the sole does not need breaking in because it is a super flexible rubber/foam combination. Love them!

Very thin and light, almost feels like you are not wearing a shoe! No padding or arch support, but still quite comfortable.

Ordered these shoes for my son, they run true to size and he says they are very comfortable! I have even washed them in the washer already and they look brand new. Incredibly fast shipping, and right before Christmas, too!
