A Christmas angel for a Foster Child who requested Vans. They looked great and the delivery was awesome! I cannot provide any rating on fit because I do not know the recipient. But, they sure looked cool!

These shoes are poorly made/designed. The bad stitching along the Achilles tendon is very hard with little padding, and there is hard material along either side of the laces inside the shoe. I wore this pair for a day, the top of me feet were red from rubbing the hard material and I have two big red welts on my Achilles that hopefully will not turn into blisters. It is too bad, because it is a really nice style.

First thing I have to say is, Zappos is amazing! I ordered these shoes yesterday (December 23rd) and received them today at noon. I can't say enough about Zappos customer service, they are the blueprint for the rest of the retail world! Now the Vans, they are like wearing a pair of your favorite slippers, so comfortable right out of the box just like I remembered them to be. I have been waiting for Vans to put out this shoe in black and red for a long time. I can't be happier with this purchase!

I'm ol'surfer who prefers Vans Shoes from Zappos. Service & Price are key. Old Skool has the fit and comfort I need after doing the rock dance at Rincon Point. More than any other Vans model I've found. The Oldman Of Da Sea

I'd also recommend: Vans Era

I love these shoes! I feel they run true to size, but they do take a little time to break in, the heel of the shoe is a little hard so I had to wear a band-aid on each heel the first few times I wore the shoe to avoid blisters. All and all it was worth it! They look great with skinny jeans!

Really like the way these shoes look and feel. They run a little big so I had to return my first pair and get a smaller size. After that they were great.
