    I recently bought this shoe for skateboarding. Keeping in mind that many brand's sizes run different on my feet my previous pair of shoes (a different brand) was a size 8.5, so I ordered the Vegans the same. Unfortunately I had to return them for a full size larger (9.5), which still feels a bit snug on my feet, but that could be due to the fact that they are a bit too narrow and curve a little too much from the little toe towards the big toe (which makes it a bit difficult for skateboarding, too). The top of the shoe has very little padding (made of just one bit canvas) so your toes are in for a world of hurt if your skateboard happens to hit that area. Because the material is so thin these shoes wear out extremely fast when skateboarding. I skated mine for approximately 10 minutes and wore a hole (about the size of a dime) completely through the first layer of the ollie area (and the second layer is white fabric). The good thing is the lace area doesn't hang over the side of the shoe near the toes so you won't be breaking many laces when skating. My favorite part about the shoes is they look great (all black!!!) and are vegan. I definitely recommend them for casual/going-out kicks (as long as you get a comfortable size), but as for a skate shoe I wouldn't advise it. If only the Half Cabs came in an all-black vegan model...

        cushioning is not great but it fits rights. i've also read that these shoes are not good for skateboarding because it wears down faster and I can see how it can. Fortunately, these are worn for casual settings or walking far, its really good.

            Sadly I have to say these are too narrow and no support while walking. I've been wearing half cabs for years and wanted to try these out. The next day I was at an authorized center swapping them out. Was delighted to learn that half cabs are canvas now, so I stay in the vegan wear category.

                Was very stoked to find a vegan option to race BMX with. I was constantly slipping off my pedals with several other shoes I was using- these grip like velcro to my pedals. Hope to see more vegan options in the future! Thanks Vans for thinking of our small demographic!
