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.

Was skeptical to shop online shoes, since I'm used to being able to see my product of interest up close. I can say that this has been a great experience and my purchase looks exactly as described.

Awesome shoe and an amazing shopping experience with Zappos. These bad-boys go well with just about anything: you can't go wrong with the black Vans.

I really like these. Since they're Vans, they're comfortable of course, but they're stylish enough to wear at the office if you switch out the laces to black or grey.

I have been wearing Vans since the early 80s. The reason I am writing this review is that over the last year (from 2013-2014), the quality of these shoes has dropped dramatically. Previously, these shoes would last me about 6 months to a year of weekly (but not daily) normal wear. I never skate in Eras, so this is just walking around and driving and stuff like that. The last few pairs I have gotten have lasted 4 to 6 months max. What I noticed changed is that the soles wear down twice as fast. This is especially the case when I wear them to drive my car, which has a manual transmission. Shifting and using the gas kills the rear edges of the soles, which is ridiculous for a skate shoe. Vans needs to maintain a higher level of quality for their sneakers. I feel that their quality is actually going down rather than up currently. I am a loyal wearer of Vans shoes but this is ridiculous because I only wear sneakers when I am off work and relaxing, so not every day, and not all day. I will be looking to other options when my current pair wears out.

I'm a female high school teacher (51) and I have gotten more compliments from students on these shoes than any other I have ever worn! The kids think they are cool. They are pretty comfortable. I do wish they had a bit more arch support, as I need to add an insole so I can wear them all day. I normally wear a women's size 11 and ordered a men's 9 1/2 and they fit great. Actually make my feet look a little smaller than some shoes.

I'd also recommend: Chaco's, Dansko
