I ordered another style of shoe and it was out of stock and it is still not in stock so I settled for this shoe. Sometimes things happen for a reason. I love this shoe. I wear an orthotic insole in all my shoes and this shoe easily accommodates the orthotic and the shoe is stylish. It looks great with jeans and it has a solid feel so I can use it for short hikes or long walks. Because I spend a lot of time outdoors and in casual wear, this shoe is a good choice.

Bought these for my daughter and my son for Christmas. Both pairs have already started to wear out quite a bit. The rubber has separated from the canvas on both pairs right at the ball of their foot.

I love all my shoes for Zappos. I wish I can buy more. I told all my family about them so now they are going to order some so thank you Zappos. I don't go to the mall any more for shoes.

I'd also recommend: Skechers all the way

Love these shoes! They're low profile and casual. I wear them all the time! The color is true to the picture. I find that these run a little big so I went down a half size - it was perfect.

Alright, I don't usually write reviews, but I'm so happy with this pair that I'm going to make an exception. I bought a pair of these about 2.5 years ago, and they still look fantastic. I usually wear these without socks, and they've still held up nicely. What's really great about these is that once they eventually get really dirty, you can throw them in the washing machine. I did this just recently, and they came out looking all but brand new. The glue that attaches the insole seems to have broken down because of this (I've washed them 3-4 times now), but it's not really an issue – most shoes have removable insoles anyway. Also, very comfortable. They aren't designed to support your feet in the same way that a pair of Nikes are though, so if that's what you're used to, expect to spend a few days getting used to them.

Great! My son loves these Vans. The one thing that is worth mentioning is that the rubber sole is grey colored. You can't really tell that it is grey from the photo.

Love them, bought a second pair. Fit as expected. I take a mens 9 1/2 and order as women's 11. I recommend them for a comfortable sneaker, and cool colors too.
