About Vans

Offering the largest shoe collection in the industry for nearly 50 years, Vans has inspired generations of skateboarders to grab air and fly. As extreme sports continue to evolve so does their sought after style.  From collaborations with Disney®, to putting together the nation’s leading action sports and music festival; they’ve held their place as innovators.

In 1975, the Vans Era™ was designed by professional skateboarders Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta to be a top choice in footwear because of its colorful canvas uppers and stellar grip. Emerging trends brought us the Vans Classics Slip-On™, Sk8-HI™ and Chukka Boots, which cemented the idea that their brand would leave its mark on pop culture and the world.

Expanding these elements into performance gear for BMX, snowboarding, surfing and motocross, just to name a few; they have created edgy apparel and accessories rich with technology and fashion. Quality jackets, soft tees and flowy dresses, set Vans apart from the competition.

Threading together their enthusiasm for creating fresh new styles at the heart of youth culture made for men, women and kids; Vans promotes individuality and motivates us to define who we are and where we want to be.

    Cute, very comfortable. Definitely would not recommend vans (in general) for someone who needs arch support. The slips specifically can feel a bit loose on the foot, especially for someone used to wearing vans with laces. But I found that going down a size (or half size) made them too small. If they feel too lose, I recommend washing them - the canvas will shrink a bit, making them more comfortable and tight on the foot.

    These run a half size bigger than stated size and don't have the correct size in stock. :(

    I adore the way these shoes look and feel, I would buy them in every color if they didn't wear so quickly. I had a hole in the toe after just four months of wearing these shoes only on weekends. I'm very disappointed as I do absolutely love every other aspect of the shoe. I canted customer service about them and they were amazing and gave a refund. Thanks, Zappos!

    My kid has size 14 feet. These vans are comfortable to him, priced right and fashionable. Not too many options for feet that big

    I would recommend that Zappos use someone other than UPS to do their shipping. They incorrectly sorted my package in the town i live in and it got sent to Kentucky. I needed the shoes for work and now I have to buy shoes locally for work until the shoes I ordered arrive. That means I'm out another 60$ or so.... thanks UPS

    I bought these to wear for a week in Paris and they're literally the only shoes I wore for 7 ish miles a day of walking. I probably should have broken them in before but still they were brand new and I never even had a full on blister, just slight discomfort in the beginning. I have Achilles' tendon problems so I should have gotten shoes with better arch support but still, they pulled through and I love them. So cute and also comfortable. I wanted the black but they didn't have my size so I got the grey and I'm in love, I think I might even like them better. Im usually a 7.5/8 and I got the 7.5 and they fit perfectly. Great shoes! Buy them!
