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.

Not much fanfare for a typical sneaker, but it's a good shoe. The thick canvas and heavy rubber sole feels like these may hold up. The crease of the stiff canvas, where foot flexes, pushes into the top of the foot. Bothersome. But it feels as if it's loosing up with wear. I like the brass eyelets and I change out the laces often with varying shades of brown. Sharp.

I purchased these a while back primarily to lift weights in because they have a flat sole and very little cushioning. They have been pretty much perfect for that task. I like the look as well, so I wear them casually a ton as well. One complaint I have about these is that the rubber sole separates from the canvas upper right at my foot's flex point. The sole gets a little tear there which doesn't look very nice. This has happened to other "classic canvas shoes" like Chucks that I've had as well, so it's not a Vans-specific problem. I've had some success alleviating this problem by super gluing the rubber back on in the past, but your mileage may vary. These run true to your Brannock size (the contraption they measure with in the store), which does mean that they run a half size bigger than your average Nike shoe.

I love this kind of shoes, I have a slip on for the last two years and they really are the best of the best; now also I add to my closet the authentic Vans mono sun dried tomato and the color is more vivid than shown in the picture. Hopefully this review will be of help to other buyers, good luck! Also I like to give credit to www.zappos.com for their excellent work being too satisfied with the service provided, communicating every move that was made with the purchase, would recommend 100%.

I'd also recommend: vans, puma

For some reason they were really tight compared to other Vans. It must be that the fabric is a bit tougher/harder than the regular soft cloth Vans. Other than the annoying tightness they are cute...maybe by breaking them in they'll stop being so tight. Love Zappos service though! Fast and free!
