Offering the largest shoe collection in the industry for nearly 50 years, Vans has inspired generations of skateboarders to grab air and fly. As extreme sports continue to evolve so does their sought after style. From collaborations with Disney®, to putting together the nation’s leading action sports and music festival; they’ve held their place as innovators.
In 1975, the Vans Era™ was designed by professional skateboarders Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta to be a top choice in footwear because of its colorful canvas uppers and stellar grip. Emerging trends brought us the Vans Classics Slip-On™, Sk8-HI™ and Chukka Boots, which cemented the idea that their brand would leave its mark on pop culture and the world.
Expanding these elements into performance gear for BMX, snowboarding, surfing and motocross, just to name a few; they have created edgy apparel and accessories rich with technology and fashion. Quality jackets, soft tees and flowy dresses, set Vans apart from the competition.
Threading together their enthusiasm for creating fresh new styles at the heart of youth culture made for men, women and kids; Vans promotes individuality and motivates us to define who we are and where we want to be.
I currently own five pairs of vans. Both slip on and tie. I love the style of this shoe. I love the waffle so. I am a drummer ant the sole of the shoe keeps my foot from slipping off the bass drum pedal. They are comfortable and come in a variety of colors. I will continue to buy more when my current ones wear out
good except it was too tight for me
I've been wearing the same model of Vans shoes for 12 years now, (usually I buy a new pair every year and a half) but there was something wrong with this pair. They both felt too small, and one of them had a stray piece of rubber in one of the toes that I couldn't remove that rubbed my foot and kept giving me blisters. Unfortunately I was in the middle of moving when I received the shoes and misplaced the box so I can't return them, but they are unwearable. My conclusion from this experience is that even when you've been wearing the same size and make of a shoe for years you still never know what you will get.
Not worth the $52! Maybe I just got a lemon pair. This is my third time buying these shoes. The first two were excellent. I've just had these for about a month and with not even daily wear, they are already falling apart. The other pairs lasted multiple summers.
Super comfy shoe, definitely run a little big though. I'm keeping the ones I ordered just to wear around and I ordered another pair a half size smaller for skating.
You can't go wrong with Vans in the summer. These shoes are classic and comfy as heck. You may have to wash the white ones after every use, but nothing looks fresher than clean white shoes.
I picked these up as an everyday replacement for a set of kicks I was wearing out. The classic Chukka style is enhanced by the white stitching. They look great and always receive complements. I carefully paired them with a set of dope laces and turned them into slip on shoes. I've spent hours in them and they remain comfortable while moving. Arch support in Vans is virtually non-existent, and in a situation where I'm standing still for hours I'll notice it (like a concert). For everyday shoes they are awesome. So much so that I grabbed a second pair as a future backup. Even the employees at the Vans store have never seen these stitched variants. I hope you grabbed a pair before that are gone forever.
a womens size 9 was sent to me instead of mens size 9
First time ordering from Zappos... Was excited to find a site that carried sweet shoes at a lower price. Ordered these in a mens 7. Receipt in the box said that I had correctly ordered that's size. What I received? A men's 10.5. Good thing that my boyfriend wears a 10.5, I just gave them to him because if I actually placed the order for the right size, and received the wrong size, with a receipt indicating the correct size, I don't really want to waste my time in the return process. Anyway, overall a bummer. Placed an order on vans.com for my correct size. Maybe it's worth paying the extra money to have the correct size delivered when you expect them.
The slim fit of the Vans SK8-Hi Slim is great; it's a perfect low profile shoe. The only drawback was the sizing. I'm normally a size 8 in Women's, but had to order a 7.5 and then a 7 because the shoe is a tad bit on the long side. Hopefully they'll help me improve my long boarding skills!
