Here's what others have to say...


Slightly more narrow than authentic's

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs small

I usually wear a 10 in Vans but these fit a little snug out of the box in the toe box. After 2 weeks they have expanded just enough to be comfortable.


No doubt about it!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'8"
    Weight: 135 lbs

These are just what you'd expect from Vans. A solid street shoe with added comfort around the ankles and heels.

My teenage son is constantly growing, so guessing his size is always tricky. He's 7.5 in most shoes, but has wide feet. I gave him an 8 in these, and he's been happy with them.

Padded Authentics

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

If you're a fan of the all time classic Van's Authentics, you'll be a fan of these as well. They're basically the authentics with padding around the heel. Size is the same as well. I wear a 9.5 in all vans and these are no different.


Classic Vans

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large

These are exactly what you would expect from Vans. They are solidly built and great for casual wear.

Pros: good if you need everyday casual shoes
Cons: poor if you're looking for athletic shoes to withstand the outdoor wear and tear


Good value for money!

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'7"
    Weight: 140 lbs
    Size Purchased: 6.5

Nice shoes, stylish... but not great quality! The soles are poorly made, one of them has the arc so far forward it is quite uncomfortable.

the vans you know & love. will stand the test of time



  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs large

Just got them and they are really nice and comfortable. A friend said to not abuse them otherwise they begin falling apart after a few weeks, so hopefully that doesn't happen.

Great looking, super comfortable shoes.

Not durable. Don't longboard or skate in these bad boys

Still love them though! Great for biking



    Great vans, a little more cushioning that the standard pair I usually get. Great color in Navy. I usually size up with vans, but wish I would have stayed true to size in this one.
