These shoes are great! Bought a pair for my 5 and 6 year olds and they love them. They have worn nothing else since they got these. These are our second pair of vans for the boys and we continue to be pleased with the fit, style, and quality.

Brands I'd also recommend: Skechers, converse

These arrived quite timely and look true to the picture provided. I got them for back to school and purchased a couple others at the same time. I must say these are the ones out of the 3 various shoe types my son "goes to" most often. They are so comfortable and affordable I would totally purchase another pair for him. Great shoe!

Bought these for my son who started kindergarten this year. They run a little big, had to send back for a smaller size, but with the free returns, it was so easy. Loves the shoes, slips ons are the way to go when you are a working mom trying to get two kids out the door on time every morning. great style & wash well.

Very cool shoes, however they run way too big! My son measures just under a 12, so I bought a 12 and they are at least 1.5 sizes too big. Really wish shoe companies would get it together and be consistent with sizing! Thank you Zappos for free shipping!

My son loves Van slip on shoes and he was extra excited for the glow in the dark ones. They fit great. My only issue is the molded plastic around the toe wears off faster than the rest of the shoe.

Love these shoes, they dont last particularly long, but they are fun and inexpensive and super cool. My son loves them because theyre easy to get off and on, he has several pairs of the vans slip ons and likes to mix and match, the glow in the dark is an awesome specialty tp these too!

Got these for my son to wear to Disneyland, they were comfortable right off, never complained about his feet hurting/ blisters. I always get him the vans slip ons, they dont last particulary, but they are cool and inexpensive, more than that he doesnt have to worry about laces at school.

True to fit and a nice shoe. The only problem is the glow in the dark coating rubbed off after a couple of wears. Don't expect them to glow more than a couple of days. Otherwise they are fine.

I love the fact that my order arrived in less than 24 hours. Seriously, Zappos...that's a record! My son picked these out because he loves Vans and because these glow in the dark. Now the bad news. After having these for less than a week the design is wearing off. It's not part of the canvas, more like a sticker type and after only wearing for 3 days it is peeling off already. And he's only worn them inside for most of that time. So, I have to give these a thumbs down in terms of quality. I expect more from Vans. I like them because of there durability but while the actual shoe will probably last a few months the glow in the dark design will not. My son still loves them but slightly disappointed that it's peeling off already.

Totally cool for a few weeks. The glow in the dark is amazing, really bright, my 9 year old loved it. But in less than a month the sticky glow plasticky film over the squares that glowed started peeling off and looks awful.

Huge bummer to say because they're so cute, but I wouldn't buy these again. The checker print peeled off after one wear. ONE. When I questioned it, Zappos confirmed that yes, that happens. If you zoom in you can see the difference between the Vans with the print affixed to the shoe versus the ones that are the shoe material. I'm going to return these for one of the other types in the hopes they look better a little longer.

Super cute shoe for my son that is very fashionable. However, after a few times wearing the shoe, the glow in the dark turquoise part is peeling off. If the shoe didn't have the glow in the dark paint/adhesive applied on top, we wouldn't have had any problems. We ended up exchanging them for the black/pewter checkerboards.

I bought these for my son. They were cool for the first day but when he came home from school a couple of the blue squares had peeled off. Now a month later 50% of the blue is gone. I should've sent them back after the first day but we pitched his old shoes so I kept them. Bummer.

My four year old loved getting these and was so disappointed when he couldn't get them on on his own. The opening is very narrow and makes it very difficult to slip the shoe on. I didn't return them because he finally got them on with my help and he loved the loafer style and pattern. It's still not loose enough for him to put on without trouble. I will not buy a Van slip on shoe again.

I bought these for my 6yr old son. Approx 2 - 3 weeks after he began wearing them the checkerboard pattern began peeling off. The "teal" squares are an overlay of some sort of plastic and have worn off terribly after only 2 weeks of intermittent wear. Very disappointed in these Vans. We're loyal Van buyers - very surprised to see this happen to $50 sneakers for kids. Won't purchase again.

These shoes are horrible! The blue wore off in several places within a week. Less than month later it looks like my son is wearing an old pair of worn out shoes. I can't get a new pair of shoes for him right now so it is what is. Very disappointing. Vans are usually awesome, just not these. I would add picture if I could.
