Vans® Unisex Authentic Sneakers

Vans® Unisex Authentic Sneakers is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them!! I've always loved vans, especially a retro look. I hesitated for a while due to the reviews. I honestly don't understand them. Mine were perfect! I know vans have always been slightly large and since they are unisex sizing I got mine in a size 7( I normally wear 9 woman) and they were perfect in every way: fit, look, quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little big, but still a fave. I'm an avid vans-purchaser and always wear a size 7.5 (women's size 9) I totally forgot that low top vans usually run a tad bigger than the high tops, so I should've purchased a 7, but I don't like clothing being super snug on me so I'll keep the 7.5 since it's not a big deal! The color looks great and is easy to match with my casual style. I've already worn them twice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!
