Holy crap! stop the video reviews this review sounds like every other sneaker review you have a traditional lace up system, even mid-sole, this and that for comfort and support. Zappos, look at the shoe, tell us what is different than what I can see from pictures and descriptions. Please stop wasting my time.

Wish I could vote all 5 stars but my son found this style to be very uncomfortable and somewhat narrow. We were surprised since they resembled his old Vans, but perhaps he bought a different style before. Anyway, we took another reviewer's advice and exchanged these for Vans Chukka Low -- a much more comfortable shoe! Overall, great looks but not comfortable if you like a little more padding.

My son loves these shoes -- this is the 4th time he's ordered this style, just in different color combos. He says they are comfortable. I know they wear well and look a lot neater than athletic shoes. Zappos always has a great price on these and of course, the super-fast service keeps us happy customers!

I'd also recommend: converse

Gifted a pair of the Cabernet/Black color to my sister-- she really likes them. The gum rubber outsole is however not as pale as shown in the images on Zappos. I knew that it wasn't white like other vans, bc that much was discernible from the images (it def. is a light beige-ish color on the monitor). But value (brightness) is off. It initially looked odd bc if you're expecting white, the new pair of shoes will look a bit odd & old. However she is very pleased with the rest of how the shoe looks-- leather and maroon color. She's been wearing them frequently ever since she got them two months ago. However she plans to get padded insoles in the future since her feet especially needs additional arch support. But for casual wearing, she finds them very comfortable and better than the many pairs of converses she owns.

My 14 year old son loves these shoes! Only problem is that they didn't come in wide width. He has a high instep and typically needs wide sizes. But he loved them so much he found a way to still wear them, just tied very loosely. Please, Vans, make some in wide widths!

I bought these for my bartending gig as I needed black comfortable shoes. These ran a bit small, were not comfortable and did not hold up too well. They had a tear in the canvas within a week.

My new favorite shoes. Great style, nice colors vans always knows how to put together a good looking shoe. The laces give you a little more room to breathe than the slip on which is better if you have wider feet.

I'd also recommend: Sperry Top Siders and Sanuks are comparable in terms of fit and comfort
