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.

The shoes were a birthday gift but they arrived when it was supposed to. Zappos' was the only website to have these considering they were sold out on the Vans website and everywhere else. So, they made my day by having them in stock.

I've owned five pairs of Vans. I buy them for the looks and comfort, not for the "support" of an athletic shoe. These are used strictly for daily use/walking. These pair is really cool because everyone thinks they are real cork (they aren't, just printed on canvas)! They 100% run a 1/2 size large. I wear a 12 in every other shoe but I wear a 11.5 with Vans. These are a fun daily shoe but don't have the support of a running shoe or other, more supportive skate shoe (Emerica and Etnies). Great shoe all around. Stylin' for sure!

I'd also recommend: Etnies and Emerica

I bought these for my teenager to take to sleep away camp. She loves them as they are cute and comfy! They do run a bit large so we purchased 1/2 size down.

These shoes run small. 7.5 usually slips off my feet - not these. Cute, but I don't have time before my trip to try another size.

These shoes fit great, I've had they for about a year now, so obviously there's visible wear. But it makes the shoes look cooler. these are much more comfortable to wear without socks than the Vans Old Skool which I would also recommend.
