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.

I LOVE the look of these shoes. They're adorable and go with everything. However, they seem to be falling apart way faster than they should. I think it has to do with the sparkly material they're made out of - after a few weeks of normal wear (walking through a city) they look pretty trashed. Disappointing because I loved them so much fresh out of the box.

These are overall exactly what you'd expect form tradition Vans with one great twist, they have metal tipped laces! I always end up messing up my laces and these will total prevent that. It is such a little detail but just so peftect!

Very fashionable shoe. I need a flat atheletic shoe, but must have room in toe box for socks.

This is a great shoe. However, the size ran large for my foot. I've learned that Vans sizes run differently for some of their shoes of the same size.

I'd also recommend: Sperry Topsider, Keds
