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.

My daughter likes these Vans because of wide toe area. These are really cute and fit well. They run true to size. Only problem with Vans is that the bottom lining in the shoe is made very cheap. She wore them 3 times and the lining fell out. This has happened with her last 2 pairs of Vans as well. Vans needs to sew in a better bottom liner in their sneaker.

I bought these for my teen grandson for his birthday -- his top pick of style and color from many choices. He adores them, says they fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I think he wears them almost every day, now the snow and ice have finally gone.

This is my first pair of Vans and now I am obsessed! The color and material are nice. I am not a fan of the way the lip of the heel rubs my ankle without socks, though.

This is a specific review for the Vans Authentic Denim Checkered Blue True and White silhouette. I am a huge Vans collector and I was extremely excited about this release. I first discovered them on Colette and I was patiently waiting for the arrival of this silhouette to come to the states so once I found them I jumped on ordering a pair. Upon the shoes arrival I was disappointed in how they were manufactured, I had no idea the design was digitally printed. I was excepting the shoes to be constructed from a blend of denim and canvas material as pictured, so I returned them, and hope one day Vans can revitalize this design and manufactured them to the highest quality.

I'd also recommend: Free People, Mink Pink, Marc Jacobs, Nike, Adidas Originals, The North Face, Alternative Apparel,

Amazing and so comfortable. The leather quality on the upper is great and surpassed my expectations. Really happy, Vans nailed it.
