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.

Super comfortable even though there isn't really much support. Width is normal to wide. From my experience, Vans canvas shoes wear out within a year, so I'm curious to see how long this particular style will last.

Stylish, beautiful and an all around hit. Casual without dressing too down. If you want fun and cute/cool this is the shoe for you.

Bought these for my college-age son. He says they're very comfortable and he hasn't worn anything since else since they arrived. Because of that, I wonder how long they'll hold up -- they have a gum sole and canvas upper that seem better suited to more occasional wear. That may be the mother in me talking -- my son said he has a new favorite pair of shoes, and for the price, we're both happy.

This is the first time I've ever bought Vans, and I love them. I got the charcoal grey, and I think they are a cute, neutral everyday kind of shoe!
