    love it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Vans makes an excellent shoe, versatile in functionality and fashion. i will continue to purchase vans for the rest of my life. - http://www.vans.com/shop/shoes-classics-era/canvas-era-navy

    Back to the drawing board

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

    I previously wrote a review on these saying I love them. I changed my mind. The era core vans is extremely uncomfortable and hard to break in vs. it's insanely superior brother the authentic core skate shoe. I'll wear the authentics every day until I die, but will never buy another pair of the era's after owning a handful. They run half a size too small, so that's part of the problem, but they also have a narrow fit that doesn't stretch. I dunno, maybe I have hobbit feet or something. Figure it out, or don't, and just by the authentics because you wanna be hip and classic like the 1980's skate crews.

    Classic for a reason

    • Fit: True to size

    The Vans Core Classic's are a classic for a reason. 've rocked these shoes for the last 20 years of my life. Like clockwork I'll buy a new pair every 6 months or so. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a solid choice of all wear shoes.

    Classic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    They put the word classic in the title for a reason. I have worn these since I was 10 years old and always have at least one pair sitting around. light and comfy plus the style will never get old.

    Rockin' & Comfy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 7 (Wo. 8.5)

    I mean, these shoes are pretty much what they look like- the perfect, simple, skater sneak. Not only have I gotten more compliments on these classic kicks than most other things I own, they just rock with everything! They fit my narrow feet better, and have quite a bit more support than the classic skates, and I believe they hold up a bit longer as well! Also- that ankle padding is a game changer. Get em, rock em, and wreck em!

    Authentic's with padded comfort

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    You can never go wrong with this model. I usually do the original real OG authentic kind of guy, but my size was out so thought I’d try the padded and length wise same great fit true 9 but word around the water hole is they run a little narrow and I can feel that. Nothing crazy narrow they just feel allot more snug out of the box than what I’m use to when I get my vans. But overall nothing better than popping a new box of Vans.

    No doubt about it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    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
    • Size Bought: 7.5

    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!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 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.

    Great

    • 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.
