I surprised my 19-year old daughter with yet another cool pair of Vans. She might have close to the entire selection by now. She loved these. Great color. And I scored big points for being the coolest Mom around. And you're not cool until a teenager says you're cool.

I love both the look and the comfort of these sneakers -- and I get compliments every time I wear them! Fit was true to size; some break-in/stretching time was needed for my specific feet issues, but I have no complaints. NOTE: I am a middle-aged mom, and these shoes are youthful without being young. I purchased them in red, and am planning to get a second pair in a pattern soon.

I'd also recommend: Gentle Souls, Ariat, Cobb Hill

I love these shoes and everyone else loves them too. They come with two types of laces. I had been interested in the Vans at JCrew but these were in a cooler color and for less money.

Bought these in light grey with white dots and I absolutely love them. They look great and feel great also. I used them more than I use my regular sneakers as these go with everything and feel great.

WOW! Loved the look of these shoes but boy, did they run narrow and a bit smaller and I even purchased the shoes a half size larger than I normally wear! Maybe the canvas will stretch out over time but I'm not sure I want to gamble on that for the money I spent on these shoes. I'm sorry to say they are going to be returned.
