A great, lightweight, durable all-purpose shoe! They grip to my bike pedals very well, breathe nicely and are comfortable to wear without socks. Took a few weeks to break in but now they're perfect. They also clean up easily.

I'm very disappointed in this shoe. The upper became separated from the sole at the mid-foot after the first week of wear, and we've found the overall support lacking in the sole. When we attempted to replace the insole with an over-the-counter arch support, we discovered a complete lack of support under the 1/8 inch foam insert. While it may be fine for light wear, it does not adequately perform for my active teen's lifestyle. Better to invest money in a better performing shoe that will last a few more months.

I've owned dozens of pairs of Vans in my life and like all the other's the era is a tried and true classic that can be worn with just about anything. These shoes are a relatively good quality for the price. For whatever reason, I had to buy the Eras in a 1/2 size up from my normal (probably because of the padded collar, but they are slightly warmer for winter wear and slightly more durable when compared to the authentic. These shoes were a little bit lacking in arch support, but the non-removable insole is soft enough that it conforms to your foot over time. The only downside I found for these shoes was the leather-like collar that wraps around the foot and across the heel. In summer months, it tends to rub and I've developed blisters on my heels from it even while wearing socks, so I tend to avoid wearing these during the hot summer months. Some say this stops after a break in period, but I had my last pair for 6 months and still had blistering. All things considered, this is an awesome shoe and you are sure to love it.

This is my fourth pair of Vans. I have two pairs of slip-ons; and two pairs of Core Classics. I love the non slip sole; and I love the color choice; also after a few weeks, you do not even know that they are on your feet. I recommend these shoes.
