Bought this item a while ago, but I can still say that vans
authentic sneakers are one of my favorite sneakers. I always
go with the navy blue, or off white. You can wear them with
any color, type of clothing. it just looks that good! I know
many people question about sizing, and i can guarantee you
this: get a half size lower if you normal, medium width
feet. These shoes do stretch out over time guaranteed. I'm
not sure about those with wide feet, but I would say get
your normal shoe size if you do have wide feet.
It's my first experience with this brand. The shoes were
just as expected and pictured. I must have gotten a little
confused about the sizing. I was quite certain that I was
under women's and ordered a size 6 and ended up with a men's
size 6. They'll work out, but watch your size when ordering
:-) Great quality shoe! All in all a great experience :-)
These items are Christmas gifts so, unfortunately, I can't
tell you guys if they run small/large or are a perfect fit.
I always wanted to get a pair of vans and getting the all
black ones is nice to match anything I wear. It feels comfy
and fits right. There is a part on one of the shoes already
that has a hole where you bend your feet when walking, the
part where the sole is supposed to be sealed against the
shoe goes apart very slightly. I don't mind too much yet but
I do worry that it might expand a lot. I've seen this happen
to a lot of shoes like this though.
Bought my first pair and I am utterly pleased. In the
interest of full disclosure, I should say that I am old
enough to remember when Keds and PF Flyers were the only
real option for "sneakers" (back before they were called
"casual shoes"). These shoes are terrific! Comfortable,
light, true to size/fit and look cool too! Really
well-constructed soles grip on slippery surfaces and they
are sturdy without being heavy. Also, I'm a fairly big guy
(6'2"/210 lbs) and these still fit/feel perfectly. I'm now a
fan and will be buying more.
These shoes came with me to Paris and walked for miles.
While my Converse gave me blisters and hurt my toes after a
while these held out, and are definitely the most
comfortable shoes I own. I wear them with dresses, jeans,
shorts, anything. Yesterday I wore them with leg warmers.
They look good with anything and make me feel like a rock
star. Now that I know how awesome these are I'm going to buy
them in a really impractical color because I know I'm never
going to take them off.
