My son just loves these shoes. He's in 3rd grade and slip on shoes are "the cool shoes". Great price and extremely fast shipping! No rips or tears or any issues with the shoes (as with active boys you know how that goes). Highly recommend.

Bought these Vans for my grandsons, ages 6 and 18 months. They love them so much, these are the only shoes they want to wear. The younger grandson was afraid of them at first but after he saw his older brother wearing them he wanted to wear his Vans. I highly recommend these fun shoes for kids.

We love the fun Vans shoes! They run really big though! My 4 year old wears a 12 but we had to get a 10½ for them to fit without slipping out of. Since you cannot Velcro or tighten them and children run around so often, I would start out at least a size smaller than you normally get. My son has narrow feet too. Thank goodness for free returns on Zappos!

Great fit and awesome style. My son loves it. May fit a little big, but not too big to return. Perfect for growing.

My son was so excited when we opened these! He absolutely loves the bright blue! But they do run a size big. We decided to keep them until he grows into them because they are not available in the next size down.

These are very cute shoes - but as with a lot of slip-ons they can be tricky to order. My son measures 12.5 - so typically I order a 1/2 size up, which I did. The 13 was flopping off of his feet. I ordered the 12.5 and while they do fit, they also slip a bit. We did keep them since I know in a matter of a month or so they will fit properly!

This shoe does not run true to size. I have ordered it in my son's size, then down a half size and it is still too big! 2 returns...boo!

My 4 year old had to have these. Now he wants to wear them every day. Unfortunately, these are not a great fit as he has a wide toe box and no heal, so there is slippage.

My 6 year old son loves Vans, and these are really fun for him. We only had to order a 1/2 size down rather than a full size down.

I bought these shoes for my grandson Eli. I love them! So does he. The color is great and goes with everything. He wears them all the time so they must be very comfortable. I was out with him this week, and a woman inquired about them. She thought they were so cute. This sneaker is one I will probably buy the next size for next year's school year. Highly recommend!

Both my boys (age 5 and 7) have a pair of these. We get compliments on them constantly. It is nice to buy a fun shoe that isn't cheesy looking and totally clunky. The only slight issue is that the canvas is very rigid and it makes them harder to put on chubbier feet (as opposed to the regular canvas slip-on vans). Once on, they dont seem to cause any trouble.

These shoes looked great. The paint on the bottoms of the shoes has worn off, and the crease where my son's toes bend at the tip has lost paint. The paint on these cracked within two weeks' worth of normal wear.

We purchased these as a summer shoe for my 4.5 year old. He loved them! We did size down 1.5 sizes, and probably could have went down another half size. The little bit of room will ensure they fit throughout the summer. Can't go wrong with these, my son loved them, and we loved the great price!

I lamented on ordering these awesome shoes because, having ordered 4's at Christmas, I know my son has grown but since this was the only chance I had, I took the risk and ordered the 4. I am so happy to read reviews that they come large! My baby can stay in boys shoes another season! I love Zappos!

Vans slip-ons definitely run big. We ordered a full size down. The wolf face is a BIG hit with my son and all his preschool friends. Makes getting dressed and out the door in the morning A LOT quicker/easier.

My son really loves his Van slip-ons! My son has square feet but not plumpy and his foot swam in these shoes. He wore thicker socks at first, but since his feet continue to grow they fit him fine now. It is not an athletic shoe, but more of a fashion shoe. They are not for narrow feet. Also, the slip-ons are made to be loose and not snug fitting, and the heel does slip even if it's properly fitted.

My seven year old son loves them. I disagree on them running small. I ordered half a size smaller (as suggested). They were too small. I ordered his true size this time.

These are the cutest Vans for a little wannabe fireman. The quality is so perfect. The last pair of Vans I bought him are just rags but he still wears them. Thank you for manufacturing such a quality product.

I was shopping on Zappos with my 6 year old grandson and as soon as he saw these, just nothing else would do. They run a little big but with socks, the size 1 works well and he still has room to grow. He gets a lot of comments about his wolf shoes. Zappos has fast delivery, an easy exchange/return policy and excellent customer service. Zappos employees are awesome!
