These are great! I get a pair of Vans flats every summer, and I would say these are the most comfortable version yet. I have been wearing a pair in black since the spring and just ordered a second pair in grey for the last month of summer. They are lightweight and there is not much to them, but they are extremely comfortable, and go well with jeans, shorts, even a skirt or sundress. I think of these as such a simple, basic summer shoe, but I get compliments on them all of the time!

SO UNCOMFORTABLE!! Just when I thought the blisters on my heels were going away I started getting blistered on my little toes, and then near my big toes. They seemed comfortable and to provide good support when I tried a different color on in the store which is why I felt confident ordering them online, but this has turned out to be a disaster.

I love these shoes. They are a lot more sturdy then the Toms or other look-a-likes without being ugly. I can even put in my orthos with them which is a huge bonus. They were pretty stiff when I first got them, but after wearing them with socks for a few days they loosened up. Couldn't be happier with my purchase! Who doesn't love great shoes at a great price (and super speedy shipping)????

I bought these shoes before going on a trip because I knew I would be walking a lot. I wore these one day without socks, but started to feel a little rubbing around my heel. Every day after that, I wore socks and no problems. The strings are very thin so I tied them a lot because the toe felt a little loose. I got a 7.5 and I usually wear either a 7 or 7.5. They're a little dorky looking, but I liked it.

The shoes were a gift for someone and I was very pleased with all aspects of my purchase. Ease of ordering, speed of delivery and well packaged delivery. The shoes were very much in keeping with their picture online and I hope they fit the person well!

I'm very happy with these shoes. The sole is very comfortable, although there isn't an arch, but that doesn't bother my feet. Others have commented on the seams, and they bothered me at first but it didn't last long. I wear a 9.5 and don't think the shoes made my feet look big.

I recently bought these shoes for my girlfriend. While looking on Zappos.com I found that the website is very easy to navigate and find exactly what I was looking for. When I went to Zappos.com I didn't know what I was going to be purchasing, but with the easy navigation and the ability to look at different views of the products I found exactly what I wanted. The purchasing process is very easy and Zappos.com delivered the product before the expected time. My girlfriend is extremely happy with the shoes and has even started using Zappos.com for her purchases. I undoubtedly recommend Zappos.com to my friends and acquaintances.

I bought these for a friend's 21st birthday. she's usually a size 10 but the 9.5 fit her perfectly (while wearing ballet no-show socks)! So I'd possibly suggest ordering a size down? She absolutely loves them. So simple yet the bright color inside definitely gives them a pop! I'm getting a pair myself as soon as I can!

Super cute and comfy shoes! I am returning for half size down, as they were a bit bigger than my normal size. But I love the wool look and they will be cute with a skirt or pants!

I liked the shoes better in person. The only problem was that they were too big. I had to return them for a half size smaller. Even the smaller size is a bit too wide. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase.

Picture doesn't do these shoes justice. I purchased the Hemp (Oil Green) which looks like a bluish color, almost like a light denim color in the picture but are actually a light mint green. Very comfortable footbed. I have a bit of a wider foot so I wish they were a bit wider but it seems that they will form to the foot. They also have a narrower sole than some Vans which I personally like because they don't look as chunky. The other thing is that the picture doesn't show the laces "bow" on top of the shoes. Wish the laces were a little shorter. Boat shoe feel but much cuter! Great spring and summer shoe. I want all three!

I'm a big fan of Vans, and while I usually wear Authentics, I wanted something different for spring. I love the style of these, and the color (I got them in the oil green). Vans have always been my favorite brand for casual shoes. I have wide feet, and they've always fit my feet exceptionally well, and always been very comfy. My only complaint is that the laces that come with them are too long, and while I keep them tucked inside my shoe, they kind of pop out from time to time.

Adorable, cute, comfy. They look great with capri pants or skinnier jeans. Not a ton of arch support, but since they run a big large, I just popped in an insole.

The shipping was on time. The shoe fit a half size too small. I tried a pair in a different color in the store, and it fit perfect. The white one was not available and that is why I bought it online. It is only the left shoe that fits me a bit small, maybe my left foot is bigger. Overall the shoe is great, just a bit smaller than I expected.

I love the look. They are on trend now. But the interior looks cheap. I would not expect it to be comfortable for an all day wear.

Cute looking shoe. Had to cut the laces as others stated. Not super comfortable for my 9 1/2 W feet, but okay to wear for short amounts of time.

I love the look of this shoe and regularly receive compliments. Much lighter than typical Vans, a great summer purchase. I would buy them again.

I absolutely love the style of these shoes. I've gotten many compliments on them. I have really wide feet, so at times - they hurt after wearing them all day. However, they are most likely comfortable for anyone with regular width feet.

Cute shoe with pedal pushers and khakis. The heel was a little stiff, so needed some working to prevent blisters.

Cute, but uncomfortable. I expected them to be comfortable but they really aren't. I really wanted a Navy pair of cute slip-ons and these fit the bill, but the inner stitching and lining was scratchy and the material was stiff. I got a pair of Vans Cedar which is a million times more comfortable; they just don't come in Navy which is unfortunate.

The canvas and soles are pretty stiff. I can wear 6-7, with my usual size as 6.5, and my heel kept coming out of the shoe as I walked. Also the heel area was not smooth and was rubbing on my heel with every step. These were super cute but unfortunately they are going back.

Very comfortable and cute. I like to tie a bow on them instead of leaving the laces tucked and it gives it a slight boat shoe feel. The shoe is very versatile and really completes a casual look.
