Vans® SK8-Hi Slim Zip High-Top Sneakers in Perforated Leather

Vans® SK8-Hi Slim Zip High-Top Sneakers in Perforated Leather is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable urban cool! The "slim" description is very accurate. I have skinny ankles and calves but wide feet, and other high-tops tend to look like clown shoes on me. Not so with these - the front of the shoe is narrow, and the lacing and heel zipper make for a practical and stylish tool to perfectly hold the top of the shoe around my leg. The leather accents are a slightly more eggshell shade of white than the rest of the shoe, which is a nice aesthetic contrast. And the heel is more padded than my old classic Vans, so they're great for city walking. Overall a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks super cute and stylish I love the look of these and the fact that they are leather ups the quality and style factor since most vans are not leather. They look super cute with jeans and my husband even likes them! I ordered a size 6 based on the reviews because I am normally a size 7.5 to 8 and they fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing classic hightops I'm a women's 9; men's 7.5 - true to size. So many complements from guys and girls alike at work! Very cool with cropped skinny jeans or a dress. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lov'em They are great and look great as well. Just make sure you take the right size because the sizes are men's sizes so you have to take 1.5 size down to get the women equivalent!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute, not super comfortable I love the look of high tops but hate all the lacing, so I thought these would be a great solution. Unfortunately the zipper doesn't mean I can just leave these tied all the time -- I just don't have the loosen the laces as much. So, a little work is saved. They do look very cute, though. The sole is not very padded, and these fit quite slim/narrow. I take a size 9 women's in most shoes but other Vans I've owned have run way large. I ordered an 8.5 in these and they fit OK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love love love I debated this purchase for a long time, and then finally bit the bullet when they were on sale. The leather is thin and very soft, so they don't take much (if any) time to wear in. Like the other reviewer said, this does cause some creasing on the toes. It doesn't bother me at all, but I could see it being frustrating. The soles aren't as high quality as I was expecting... I've owned several pairs of vans and for some reason these felt thinner / harder / less supportive than the other pairs. I think the zipper is SUPER helpful. I'm able to take them off and put them on without tying and un-tying every time, but I have long, thin feet, so maybe if that's not the case it would be more difficult. Overall I'm super happy with them, but I could see being a little disappointed if I'd paid full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect white sneakers! I love these sneakers because they are easier to clean than cloth Vans and thus the perfect white sneaker for my lifestyle. I ordered a 6h (women's 8) and it fits true to size! Two complaints: 1) the "leather" feels cheap, and creases near the toe area. It's not a huge deal but I can tell that it's not top quality. 2) this isn't really a problem, but the zipper doesn't really change much in terms of convenience. It makes these easier to take off, but to put them on I still need to use the laces. Great sneakers, not the best quality but I know I'll get a lot of wear out of them for the season.
