Overall a good shoe. They look great and can be used with many outfits. My biggest knock against them is the padding and support. There doesn't seem to be a lot of padding on the bottom, so your feet can get very sore after walking in them for a long time. People with flat feet may like these as well as there is little in the way of arch support.

Great, understated shoe. I had the denim and gum rubber version and decided to buy the black one this time. This is a casual shoe, so it's great for the office, going out, and around the house. Not good for activities like hiking, skateboarding, etc, and a little more lightweight than standard Vans. I will probably buy a third pair when these wear out in a couple years, but I'll try and get a deal on them because this is actually a little expensive for such a simple shoe. They are pretty slick thoug!

These are good Looking and they are sized right. I have never owned a pair of Vans but these will not be my last. They are sized correctly and comfortable, too.

I love these Vans. They are very comfy and fit my difficult feet very nicely. This Vans Madero "model" feels and looks less clunky than the Vans Classic (don't get me wrong - I love the Classic too). And I love the designer color (Shitake). I hope they continue with the Madero version; Later on I'd like to try the other colors, too.

I was looking for a sneakers that were relaxed but casual. These shoes were perfect. The colors are true the picture which I loved. I have yet to wear them as it has been too rainy to do so but I have a lot of outfits coordinated with these shoes. I have no regrets and I highly recommend them!

I absolutely love these shoes! I bought the Khaki/Tan color last year (December 2014) and ordered them again last week, along with some black ones in the same style (Vans Madero). They are so comfortable, and look great.

Very trendy, classy shoe. My boyfriend loves it! Not a ton of support in this shoe, but he bought inserts to make it more comfy. He loves the look, so he doesn't really care.

These shoes are awesome. They fit consistently with the other Vans I've had. I really like the monochromatic look of these. It makes them very easy to wear with pretty much anything. Very comfortable, too.

I haven't owned a pair of Vans since middle school and had forgotten how awesome these shoes are! I have wide feet/fat feet, whatever, and these shoes fit amazing on my feet! Love the colors. (I ordered the black and gum sole and the pumpkin spice with white). Can't wait to rock them out. I love my shoes! Thanks Zappos for reconnecting us.

I got a pair of black Vans with white soles and a camo/tribal inside. I generally wear an 8½ Women's. I really like these! They are really comfortable and look great. Zappos shipped them super quick and they were not damaged or anything. I got an 8½ and they fit perfectly! I have had them for months now and I love them. The only concern that I had was that the arch support was not great; but it does not bother me much as I am pretty flat-footed.

Easily one of the most stylish shoes I've purchased. They look great and the gray chambray go with nearly any pair of pants. However, I suggest that if you do a lot of walking that you pick a different shoe, or do what I did and pick up some gel insoles. Before the insoles, walking in these gave me decent sized blisters on the balls of my feet. Overall, a great casual shoe.

Absolutely amazing shoes. Have had them around 3-4 weeks now...basically all I wear. I can wear them out to the park or to the office for work. They do rub on the heel a bit, but that's pretty typical for Vans.

I have had these for a few weeks and they are my new go-to Vans. I used to wear the LPEs and am switched over to these from now on. I went with the grey and gum sole. I got half a size smaller than my usual after reading the reviews and they fit perfectly. They look good with shorts or pants and are super comfortable. I highly recommend these.

Got them for my all-black everything boyfriend. These were fresh with the gum sole but neutral enough that he digs them. They go with everything. They are also have a slimmer silhouette as opposed to the chunky classics. We both love them...& are perfect with shorts!

I have terrible feet and try to appear stylish. These shoes address both needs. Super duper comfortable, good support, lots of cushion between sole + hard streets. And, for my fashion concern - people actually stop me to ask where I got my shoes, they're amazed when I explain they're just plain old Vans. A really great shoe at a swell price!

I love Vans! I bought these for the summer to wear without socks. I got half a size smaller and they still have a little extra toe room without socks. I love them with my rolled up jeans.

Really comfortable, I'm a size 11 and these shoes make my feet look really slim. Love the material, easy to clean and matches with my whole wardrobe. Awesome Vans overall, and one of my favorite pairs of shoes.

I ordered these for my son to replace some much-loved black Vans. He is really pleased with these shoes. The fit is true to the vans sizing. I ordered him a 10.5 and that is what he wears in other brands of shoes, so I suggest ordering what you normally wear. The black fabric has a sort of cross weave texture.

I was looking for an everyday sneaker that was flat and somewhat "wide" to replace my Sambas and these are working great. (Apparently, Adidas have gotten much narrower since I bought my last pair several years ago.) Only issue is that they are much larger than I expected lengthwise. Oddly enough, my other Vans are snug.

Great casual shoe for any occasion. Vans seem to run a 1/2 size too big. Had to send the original pair back for a 1/2 size smaller. Thanks Zappos, for a quick and easy exchange!

I love, love, love these shoes. I bought them as a less expensive/slightly more casual version of oxfords. In shitake/gum, they totally work as a substitute and are way more comfortable. Paired with skinny jeans, button up denim shirt and a top knot, they're just perfectly classic hipster and take my fashion game up a few pegs. These do have poor arch support even for those with healthy feet. I have plantar fasciitis, so I am adding Sole arch supports (the super thin kind), and they add really nice arch support. I'd recommend this for anyone who's on their feet all day. The shoe is roomy enough to accommodate the insert with no heel slippage. I've worn them almost every day for a couple months now and they're showing no signs of age, even in the light color. I did spill guacamole on them and a tide pen took it right out. Love that!

I absolutely love these shoes. They are adorable! They are one of those casual shoes that you can wear walking all day with shorts, but also dress up for the night. They can even work with a casual suit. And being canvas, I suppose you could clean them pretty easily.
