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'm female and wanted to match a pair of Vans I have that enable me to wear short (below the ankle) socks without looking dorky. I have to wear orthotic inserts which require socks. So after Zappos so kindly sent me a pair of Vans "Authentic" and a pair of Vans "Era," I realize that on both models, the laces are much lower on the top of the foot, and the sides are much lower, meaning my white shorty socks are pretty high up and- yep- it looks really dorky. So to get a pair of Vans that look okay with shorty socks, stick to an Atwood style of Vans. Also, the toe box is significantly lower on the Authentics than on the Atwood, with less room above the toe.

These are my happy shoes! Adorable print, typical Vans, true-to-size fit. No, no arch support (why only 4 stars for comfort), but they're not meant for walking. Fast shipping from Zappos, as always.

I'd also recommend: Converse, adidas

I bought these for my granddaughter's 14th birthday. I understand she has worn them everyday since getting them. Now that's a 5 Star rating!

Bought these for my 10-year old granddaughter after the slip-on style proved much too narrow. By the time I re-ordered the tie style (a day later) she had changed her mind about wanting the "doughnut shoes" and wanted these instead (because they are pink, her favorite color). These shoes are a hit, they fit perfect on her slightly wide foot. She wears a big kids size 4 but I ordered an adult size 5 for this style and they fit fine. She says she plans to wear them every day until school is out.

I'd also recommend: Nike
