The perfect sneaker for casual wear. Easy on the feet, super cute print. I was hesitant to purchase without trying on, but they worked out perfectly. I'm in between a 7 1/2 - 8. I got the 8's and they're perfect. I'll probably be purchasing another pair soon!

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.

I love these shoes. I get a ton of compliments and like they are more girly with the slim fit. Sizing is Van's specific so if you have not bought Van's before get a couple of sizes to determine the right one for you. I go down a 1/2 size.

I've been wearing the black and white authentics for years now and they never do me wrong. However, ordered these with the assumption they would feel almost identical to the authentics with a slightly slimmer feel (given the name). I typically wear 10.5 but these felt more like 9.5s and we're far too slim and uncomfortable to keep. They were very slim, and I have very narrow feet as well. A little bummed on that, sent 'em back. If you buy these, you ought to consider going up a half or even a full size. Got another pair of the black and white normal authentics. No biggie. Take the tip though y'all. I still love you Zappos!
