I bought my pair of Vans SK8 Hi's last week and they've arrived today, as expected, in pitch perfect shape. At first, I was wide eyed with excitement at the sight of my new shoes. However, there were a couple of chores that I came across which didn't diminish my enjoyment of them as much as postponed it. First is the lacing. Don't try to bar lace these particular high tops. Instead, do the criss-cross way as demonstrated on the pictures right here on Zappos. Second, don't tie it all the way to the last hole. Why? Because it will be a pain if not impossible to put them on. This is a very tight shoe. Not uncomfortable, but tight around your foot. In my case, I had to leave the top two rows alone to achieve the perfect balance between the practicality of putting them on and the length of the laces when I tied them up. And now finally we come to the shoe itself. Vans has always been setting standards of skate shoes, but the Sk8 Hi is a shoe that can be worn seemingly anywhere. The closest I can get to comparing it with another shoe would be the Chuck All Stars, however this shoe feels much sturdier and durable. I also advise to wear it with regular socks, not short ones simply because if you start getting sweaty it will get sticky down there because of the leather. As far as style goes, to each his own, but I always appreciated the old school look of Vans. They bring up memories of shoes I've worn in the past and yet make it contemporary enough to turn some heads. It is the fusion of the old and the new, the pioneers and the rookies, and it works all too well. I wear Chuck's in 9 so I bought these in 9.5 and they fit perfectly. I strongly recommend these to anyone who appreciates practicality over complexity.

I looked back in my account history to see when I bought these shoes. You have to be kidding me, it was less than two months ago. I bought these shoes because they looked super slick and I like Vans (except that they're made overseas, but I thought I'd give them one last chance). Dude. I don't even skate. I wear these shoes at all times, and I think they might have been a size too small, but that doesn't excuse what happened. Within two months the soles have worn through, and the shoes fit weird because of some kind of sinkage in the rubber. I'm a big guy, I ordered 12's, but I think that this is ridiculous. I'm never buying Vans again.

Long time wearer of vans. I like these hi's, just wish they came in more colors. The white is super white, construction feels very sturdy.

I love these shoes, I have narrow feet and it's hard to find shoes that fit right. I mountain bike, hike, and climb trees amongst other outdoor activities. These shoes work great for me all around. The only thing I do to improve these is put in an insole, because they lack a little padding for my taste.

If your child has a wide foot and finds sneakers uncomfortable, this just might be for him. My son really likes his pair (and we tried a lot of different sneakers). We ordered one size up and they fit great. We are very happy with these sneakers and will definitely order Vans again.

These are perfect. Got them to replace an original set from 20 years ago. Check the size in a store first, as they seem to run small. I normally wear a 13, but the 14s fit perfect. Thanks Zappos!

I've been wearing this style since '96 and I love these shoes. Every time they wear out (which takes a while mind you), I just buy a new pair. They go with jeans and shorts and you can wear them year round. Great shoes.

Great shoe for any time of the year (especially spring)! They will wear quickly if frequently used for physical activities though. I highly recommend them. Zappos also shipped them very quickly.

These shoes are great. They break in fast and have amazing feel while still being true to comfort. They are great shies to skate in, they were the first skate shoe. That's gotta tell you something.

I wear this shoe to play basketball. I love it! I know it is not a conventional basketball shoe, but it is the only shoe I like better than Chuck Taylor\x5c's to play ball in. The high top, has tremendous ankle support! You can wear this shoe so tight it is like being taped up when you play. I recommend them to everyone who I play basketball with, only one guy tried them, and he loves them!

One night, I looked at my shoes and thought "Jeez, I need some new shoes." So at 2:30am, I bought some new shoes from Zappos. Two days later, at 4:00pm, I had new shoes at my front door stoop. It's like the New Shoes fairy gave me a visit and knew that I liked Vans. Also, the New Shoes Fairy knew that I didn't like spending an arm and a leg for great kicks that make me look sexy. Thank you, New Shoes Fairy. No more torn and tattered. All sexy. Sexy is good.

These were a Christmas present for my son. The product was exactly as pictured and described. More importantly, however, is the excellent service provided by Zappo\x5c's. I have purchased many times from this website, and the service is exemplary. I will continue to be a committed Zappo\x5c's customer.

This is probably one of the best Vans out there, they are great for skating. Durable sole, and suede upper lasts a long time. They are also really stylish and can be worn with just about anything.

Very good for skate boarding, class SK-8 Style needs to remain in production. Moderate to no arch support. The canvas style appears tighter than the suede. Use a good insole for these shoes, but not as much as the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star brands. When using insoles don't go any size lower for a wide or irregular foot; however, order a half size smaller for a narrow foot.

Great Shoes! I have been wearing Vans shoes for about 28 years. I love the look and style, and the way the shoe fits. Besides these Sk8 Hi Vans, also look for the Sk8 Mids, Slip Ons, Authentics, Era 45, Half Cabs, and other Vans, which are all available here at Zappos! You will not be disappointed.

Best suede sneakers - I got the black-on-black suede ones. They look great. Very comfortable. I used to buy Simple brand suede sneakers, but they don't make them anymore. These are a good substitute. The heel of these is a bit wide for me, but I have a narrow heel anyways.

Gift - I bought these shoes as a gift to my husband for his birthday (30) he says he loves them and reminds him of his first pair of skate shoes but even more comfortable. Vans were all he would wear but he'd wear out the soles fairly quick. As for comfort he has never said this about the other, popular, (and more expensive) skate shoes.
