Vans® Unisex Authentic Sneakers

Vans® Unisex Authentic Sneakers is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unisex sizing caused me to return the shoes Why the sizing wouldn't calculate automatically is quite a mystery, since I'm shopping on a women's site. I bought these shoes on mobile, so Lord knows I did not see the tiny print about needing a TI 84+ calculator to figure out my size. When the shoes finally arrived in the mail (Madewell.com only!), it took about 10 minutes of me flopping around in these banana-colored embarrassments before I realized something was off. They're a MEN's size 6, meaning a women's size 7.5 Here are some of the things I could fit in that extra size and a half: • The cost of these shoes in $1 bills, rolled into the toe • ALL THE DISAPPOINT I FEEL Also, while the rubber and shoelaces are white, the canvas is clearly Crayola® Banana Mania. Wish me luck trying to return these in-store. At least I can get a Cinnabon while I'm at the mall; if they're even still open.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
