Vans® Authentic Sneakers

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love these shoes but they are enormous! I usually wear an 8, occasionally a 7.5 but usually an 8 and these shoes are so cute so when I saw them on sale I had to buy them. Well, sadly they are final sale and they are enoooormous! Like a solid inch and a half too long for my feet! Way beyond the realm of possibility. Going to have to find a way to sell them because there is no way to make it work. What a waste. July 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Be kind to your feet by purchasing these sneakers I purchased my 1st pair of Vans from Madewell last year and have since purchased several more including the authentic sneakers in white. I love the great arch support and thick sole which makes them super comfortable and great for standing or walking. They look great with just about everything from shorts to dresses. I normally wear a size 9 and followed the ordering suggestion and got the 7 1/2 and they fit perfect. Overall, I am very happy with this Madewell purchase. May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these shoes! these shoes look great dressed up with a loose black dress or dressed down with jean and are an all around very versatile and great shoe to have in your closet. plus, the blue vans is a classic. great purchase April 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile & Comfy Sneakers Love these sneakers- comfortable, cute, and they go with pretty much everything. They run about a half size large (even taking into consideration the 1.5 size difference between men & women's sizing). Look great with jeans or skirts. Comfortable right out of the box, even for long walks! I get lots of compliments on them. I will definitely be purchasing more of these in different colors! June 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by cute and comfy These shoes are a great buy, super comfortable and low-key. I love the color because it goes with everything. I got the 5.5 to fit like a 7, and they still fit a little big which is how I like them. Definitely recommend! May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Definite yes! I love these sneakers! They look just like they do in the picture, and they go great with anything: jeans, dresses, shorts, etc. Remember that Vans are unisex and girls need to get a size and a half smaller than they would normally wear. For example: I wear an 8.5 and got a 7 and they fit perfectly. December 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome tennis shoe Great shoe! I recently had knee surgery and needed cute shoes to throw on with dresses and wear to the office - these are prefect! Low profile, cute, and comfy! I bought a 5.5 to fit like a 7 (I usually wear a 6.5 in ballet flats), and the shoes fit a little big, like a 7 would. I would certainly recommend these and am thinking of getting these in other colors! April 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cute shoes and great color! Vans run a little bit large maybe due to unisex sizing. About a 1/2 size. These shoes are very comfortable and will go well with jeans or dresses!! September 18, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beauty is pain? I have owned this pair of Vans for four months now. They are beyond adorable and I get compliments every time I wear them. But for some reason they are the most uncomfortable shoes I own! I always get blisters on my ankles and heels while wearing them. I thought it was just a "breaking in" period, but it's been four months. I've tried everything to make them comfortable and break them in more but nothing seems to work. It's a shame because they are such cute shoes. I ended up buying a different pair of vans from Madewell which are much more comfortable (black slip ons). These shoes might be taking "beauty is pain" a little too far. August 31, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Received Defective Product Love Vans authentic sneakers and have owned many pairs. I was so excited to get these and purchased specifically from Madewell (although they are widely available online and in local shops) because I am a huge Madewell fan- product quality and customer support are generally amazing. Unfortunately, the pair I received was defective... One of the shoes made a very loud clicking noise. So disappointed that the only defective pair of Vans I've encountered came from Madewell :( Now, my size is sold out - so I'll have to buy the shoes elsewhere - and I have to deal with the hassle of returning otherwise great shoes. I will say, as long as you don't receive a defective pair, the shoes are very cute and comfortable - just be mindful of the Vans specific sizing. June 17, 2015
