These shoes (in the dachshund brown) are the most ridics comfy shoes I've ever owned. I have bony feet and feel pressure points in everything. Not these. I forget I'm wearing them all the time. Sleek and supple as a sexy seal too. Worth buying x 2. (Waterproof/stainproof the suede ASAP.)

I was pretty happy w/ this purchase. I have always rocked Vans and always will. However this pair somehow just fell to pieces after about a month of wear. I am back on Zappos to buy another pair of Vans, just not the Rata Vulcs.

Some of my favorite shoes. I always buy these shoes on Zappos because they are an awesome fit. Great casual wear. The insoles can be removed and replaced with ease. Also makes the shoe very easy to wash, just take the insole out and toss together in the washer. Now I have these in many different materials, for example: canvas, leather, cord. By far the leather last the longest with everyday use. Highly recommend this shoe.

Overall the shoes look good, but they are not very comfortable. The sole is a waffle pattern which makes my feet very sore but only in certain places. Also, the quality of the shoe is lacking. I have worn them daily for about a month and they are already beginning to degrade. The bottom is rapidly wearing away and somehow I have managed to get one of the eyelets out of round.

My 17 year old loves these. I love the free shipping and handling Zappos offers. These can be washed right in the washing machine too. Just let air dry.

I'd also recommend: My teen is very picky, Vans is all he will wear for now.

I have a wide foot so I bought a half size up. There is no way I could wear this shoe. Ever. If you have normal to narrow feet, it's a great looking shoe. If not, look elsewhere.

Pattern looks less like a palm tree and looks more like a marijuana plant especially since the 'grey' color is really more of an olive green - true to photo color. Also, very low sides with little support - even my cool surf-athletic-son felt uncomfortable wearing it to high school - didn't want to send the wrong message.
