Top Notch! Great skate shoe! It’s been almost 18 years since I skated Vans Sk8-Hi Standards and I've been missing out! Grip is excellent, great board control, no stupid arch support which is great for my flat feet. The Iron Maiden graphics kick a** and they come in an awesome box. Buy these shoes if you skate or like Iron Maiden or both! Also, keep an eye out for the Jeff Grosso pro model shoe.

The SK8-Hi's, unfortunately, were unable to put up with the abuse of modern skateboarding. Several Kickflips into these shoes and you've lost the tread. Several weeks of skating shows a loss of the canvas siding as well as signs of wear on the toe. And where the extra foxing on the toe beings, there is an edge on the inside of the shoe that makes it very uncomfortable.

I wore the canvas version of these when I was in high school, and I loved them. I got this pair with the intention to pair them with casual black layers, leggings, and maybe even a dress. They can translate between styles like a pair of Doc Martens, and are perfect for the grown-up goth look. As with all Vans shoes, expect insoles with no arch support. I have flat feet, but love the thin sole. I tend to wear women's 10½-11 and ordered men's 10/women's 11½ and the fit is just right.

Love these Vans. I have never worn Vans before, but now I love it. Very stylish with skinny jeans. I wear it at work, on leisure, everywhere. True that the size is bigger than your usual size. Size 7 feels like 7 1/2, but I will keep the 7 because I usually use an insole.

My shoes of choice - I bought these and I love them they are some of the most comfortable shoes I own... I bought the ones with slayer on them just to have some different shoes then everyone else.

I'd also recommend: a pair of old school chucks

Pleased Mother - My son asked for these shoes for Christmas. He does like them even though he said he is having to get used to them since they are high tops. I actually love them because he is not running around with his shoes untied and flopping around. I like the looks too.
