What can I say -- a classic brand, very good quality. The gray color goes with everything. Nice and comfortable but a little more stylish for running around doing errands than athletic shoes.

Great looking shoe. Felt true to size. A bit of a break-in period, quite stiff in the heel at first.

I'm always on the hunt for simple, straightforward canvas sneaks that are comfortable for a good deal of walking. I love the minimalist/vintage (think 1950s) look of Keds Champions but my feet are a little wide up front and those shoes kill me! The Vans Authentic Slims provide more comfort in the toe box and have the low-profile aesthetic I look for. Thank you Vans! My only complaint: the rubber pulls away from the canvas early on in use. (Several customer reviews on the Vans site noted the same thing.)

I love these sneakers! They are the most comfortable shoes I own. I would wear them to work if I could. I bought 2 pair..one in a teal green…get lots of complements on them. Great purchase.

I'd also recommend: Reef flip flops

Love the style. The thick soles are comfortable for biking. There's not much arch support, so I put in inserts. The print is super cute but some spots seem a little smudgy and I'm not sure how I can clean it since it looks like this is not apart of the fabric but some kind of decal. Overall, I like them. I don't know how long they're gonna look good though.
