Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to Showcase Your Chill Nonprofit Coordinator STYLE Most of you are going to use slide your Vans on to trek to class, or to keep it mellow when you're grabbing brunch--but I've used them to lock up my "chill non-profit coordinator" status. Nothing says "I care about making the world a better place, and being a boss" better. Sure when you gotta get a grip on a grant it's time to pull out your pumps, but on the day to day these are a dream! When you're working this hard, your steps must be confident. When you need to work hard for a long time, you need your feet to be comfortable. When you wear mostly neutrals it's good to have a kick of color. --so here's the perfect solution. Level up by adding in my Madewell denim, Essential White Boyshirt, and top it off with the scarf you knitted with your grandma.--Cause the only person who makes a better scarf than Madwell, is someone who loves you. Thank you so much for these amazing kicks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Summer Style! I love these shoes. I got the turquoise color and am so happy with them. I wear the shoes with an insole for a bit of arch support if I am going to be walking a lot. Really cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy; make sure to size down as per product description Every single person who sees me wear these compliments them -- no exaggeration. They are timeless and well-constructed, well worth the price tag. I wear a size 8 or 8 1/2 women's and so was debating on whether to get a size 7 or 6 1/2 in these -- I ended up going with the size 7, and they fit nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes I am not one to wear sneakers very often but these caught my eye and I had to have them. I have the pair in green. The color is beautiful and the leather laces are high quality. It took a little while to break them in and soften the heels, but after a few weeks of wear they are perfect. I wear them constantly with denim shorts, frilly skirts, and dresses. Comfortable and stylish enough for every day wear. With the high quality of these sneakers, it may take a while to achieve that worn-in, faded vans look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these kicks It's been over 10 years since I wore vans and I'm glad to see that their quality has not changed. I bought these sneakers in light green and love them. You've got to break them in and I recommend wearing socks that don't show to prevent any blisters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoes! I got these in light green. I like that the color is kind of greyish green, so they can be worn with anything. I think the leather laces add a little uniqueness which makes them more chic than a regular sneaker. In store they had them marked with women's sizes so I got my usual size. I would wear them with socks though, as I think they can be a little rough on bare feet, especially with the leather laces on top of your foot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Love the mint color. The shoe also comes with normal laces incase you don't want to use the leather all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Spring/Summer Shoe This are really great. I followed madewell's recommendation to oder down a size and a half and they fit perfectly. They do require a little breaking in, but nothing crazy. Love these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed for spring Like all Vans, they're a bit stiff at first, but quickly come to know your feet. They give my wardrobe needed options; they're neat and pretty, easy to wear, nice when it's a little too cold for a flat in the morning, and did a great job running around Disney on spring break. I'm a fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable and comfortable! I love my new mint green Vans. The leather laces are a great detail and actually do keep the knot throughout the day. The size runs large so just order 1.5 sizes down. Very comfortable and need very little "wearing in". Goes well with any pair of jeans!
