I bought these as a present for my husband and he loves them. the shoes are very light and he says very comfortable. They can be dressed up with jeans or look sporty with board shorts. The color is awesome too. somewhere in between dark brown and charcoal grey which also makes them versatile.

Love the style, but after 2 days of walking in them, the stitching started coming apart near the top. Had to return them unfortunately.

Ridiculously stylish and comfortable. Good for no socks because the inner part is washable. Also looks good with socks!

These are great shoes! For me they seemed a little small and tight at first. Most of my shoes are 8.5, I also have another pair of Vans that are 8.5 and they are bigger/roomier. I guess they are meant to wear without socks maybe but I can't go without socks. After wearing them a dozen or so times they have broken in well and fit like a glove. They are very comfortable for all day wear. I was a little worried about the all rubber insole but I really can't tell the difference from any other shoe. Love these and wear them to work often. Good all around shoe, very comfy.

Great shoe. Feels just like my pair of Rasta Bali Vans, which I loved. The only difference is these fit a bit tighter, which is fine. The shipping was crazy fast; ordered Friday, here Monday. I have long, narrow feet and these fit great in a size ten. Might be a tight fit with wide feet.

These shoes fit well and are pretty awesome, but they fall apart after a handful of wears. The problem is that they don't even make it long enough to have the canvas split where the toe flexes at the front. The whole white wrapper of the sole and start of the top part of the shoe, comes apart from the whole sole. So water gets in and makes the sole liner wet and generally bad news. Wish these were more durable. I thought about returning these to Zappos, but felt bad returning a worn product. So I just ate the cost. Don't get these shoes. Seriously. Unless you like to spend this much on 5 time use shoes.

I received these shoes in the mail the day after I ordered them! In the box was just what I expected, a great looking pair of Vans that are very comfortable, with or without socks on. These shoes have a clean look and go great with cargo or khaki shorts as well as jeans.

There shoes are okay, they get the job done. They look a little more dressed up then tennis shoes. But I walk a lot in the city and so they lasted no more than six months before the back rubber strip was worn out. This was my third canvas style boat shoe in the last two years. This'll be a one-time purchase. Next time I'll try to find something that lasts a little longer. And I said that about my last two purchases. I wanted to add some shoes to the wardrobe that were better in appearance than Athletic tennis shoes, for the summer but not as dressy as oxford leather. So I decided to give lightweight canvas shoes a try. I live in New York walk around a lot and I need to have a flexible wardrobe that's a dressed up slightly casual. I chose the solid navy blue color w brown laces and they were flexible to wear with different colors. They are flat with no arch support but surprisingly that didn't bother me, and I do have a minor arch problem. I'll so don't like how the white rubber wrapped around the shoe gets marked up and dirty pretty easily. Next time I think I will look for a color that's not white for this rubber strip.

The stitching inside the shoe is sharp. Vans are made to be worn without shoes. This pair would have had my feet bleeding in 10 minutes. Somebody else made the same comment here, but gave it 4 stars for some reason. This problem is immediately noticeable by putting your hand into the shoe, which means that no human ever inspected these.

I ordered these for my husband. They're very good looking and stylish, but unfortunately run too small for his usual size. Will return and am ordering a pair from Sperry.

Love these! Super comfortable, great fit, cool casual style, nice to walk in. They're just about perfect. These are my no-socks shoes. Sometimes that doesn't work out because I don't like how shoes get sweaty, but these shoes do an outstanding job of staying dry. Like magic! When these wear out, I'll definitely get another pair.

Never had so many compliments on a pair of shoes in my life. These are stylish enough for a wedding (check) and relaxed enough for a skate session (check). These fit a bit tighter than the vans rata vulc, but are accurately sized overall. Super lightweight and incredibly comfortable. Get some!

Very uncomfortable. Hurt my feet to walk in them. The shoe felt really narrow. If you want a way more comfortable shoe like this go to the the otto canvas by tretorn.

The style is perfect, but I've only worn the shoe for 2 full days and already the white rubber out-sole is separating from the fabric at the ball of the foot.

These shoes are great. I can't get enough of them. The only downside is that you may notice dust/dirt on the yellow part. But they're highly comfortable and even more stylish.

I must say, I really have been enjoying these shoes for the summer. They're comfy and stylish. Just a heads up though, these shoes are not meant to be worn with socks. If you really have to wear socks, I recommend getting a half size bigger. The inside is made of rubber, almost like water shoes. I thought that my feet would sweat, but they don't and do rashing from the back part either. Total summer shoe!

I've been looking for shoes like these for a while now. Originally I was going to go for Sperry's, but I wanted something slightly different than that design but with the same style. These shoes are comfortable, and are easy to walk around in. Additionally, cleaning them seems to be super easy as well. Totally recommend buying these.

I love these shoes. I got them as an alternative to Sperry's, which cut the back of my heels. These do nothing of the sort. They are very comfortable and have great arch support for a boat shoe. Also the color is great. I got it in the Navy/Mineral yellow as it's something different, and I think they look great. Won't find another shoe like 'em. Definitely buy!
