First of all, I am a huge fan of Vans. They are not too expensive, and I can get just about every color to match hats, hoodies, etc. The Vans 106 Vulcanized are awesome. They are very similar to the original lace ups/slip-ons, but are just a little higher on your ankle. Not much, but enough to prevent my pants from dragging the little that they do with the originals. I picked up the chambray peacoat/indian teal for myself and have gotten countless compliments on the color. I am a big shoe guy and have only seen this color on Zappos. I went to the Vans store in them and the associate was flipping over the color cause he had never seen them before. I got my girlfriend the navy color because she said she could wear them with anything. She loved them just as much as I do. At the price, for two pairs of shoes it's a steal. I love Zappos.com and I love Vans. It's a match made in heaven!

A long time Vans customer (and Chucks), I generally know what to expect from this type of shoe. These shoes, however, were terribly uncomfortable out of the box. They dug in around the ankle, the padding was ineffective and took weeks to break in. What was worse, they began to fall apart, where the sole meets the canvas, within about 2 months, just from normal use, walking around the city. Also the heel began to come apart from the inside. Very overpriced for the quality. I would not recommend these shoes.

Great shoe. Glad I spent a little extra over the traditional Vans. The comfort is worth the extra money.

Looked good online but in person these are really sharp. Not only a cool skate shoe, but can easily be dressed up for a classy yet stylish fashion.

Great simple sneaker. Goes great with jeans or shorts. Comes with white and dark laces which is kind of cool. I like the 106 vulcanized better then the core classics because they feel a little more sturdy and comfortable...they sit a little higher on the ankle too. Great all around sneaker

I love these shoes. They felt great right out of the box. The women's 5.5 was true to size. So happy to find them in my size. I love the thick sole, style, and feel.
