Vans makes an excellent shoe, versatile in functionality and fashion. i will continue to purchase vans for the rest of my life. My only issue with the white soles are how they get dirty so easily. I have multiple pairs of the gray and black soled vans for that reason. i think it would be really cool if you packaged a small container of cleaner for the shoes and a brush of some sort. I understand having a shoe that gets dirty easily is good for business because it makes the next purchase come sooner, but a little bottle of vans cleaner and a vans brand toothbrush would be a stellar idea. That idea is on the house. Just send me some cleaner. Thanks. And a brush.

        Comments about Era:

        I'm a huge fan of vans I've had around 5 pairs of the eras and I think they're sweet. I know a lot of people say vans wear out quickly but if you wipe the soles down every now and then and keep them clean they'll last a long time. I loved the authentics and was looking for a more solid shoe, the little padding around the eras makes them a little more durable. All around very comfortable and my vans are my everyday shoes.

        Comments about Era:

        I have been buying these nonstop for the past 30 years. When one pair wears out, I get another, and when that pair wears out...yep, another. In all actuality, I usually have 3-4 pairs in my closet at any given time - and they are almost exclusively black. Only suggestion is that they need to reinforce the toe box, as it is always the first to wear out on every pair I get. The shoes are doing great overall, but next thing you know, my big toe is peeking through and they have to become yard shoes.

        Why 3 stars?? Because Vans did something different in the past year or two and it seems that the shape of the Era toe has slightly changed somehow. I know it sounds odd, but the toe is just not shaped the same and it bothers me beyond belief. Maybe it's a difference between factories? Maybe it is a slight design change? Who knows....

        THE COLOUR FADED

        By maria_ppd

        About Me Conservative

        Pros

        • Comfortable
        • Stylish

        • Colour faded
        • Wear Out Quickly

        Best Uses

        • Casual Wear

        Comments about Era:

        I bought a pair of these approximately 8 months ago. I did were them for a couple of days each week for about 4 months and then the colour on the front top part of the shoe started fading. I've only washed them once, but it doesn't have to do with it because it happened after a long time. I tried washing them in case it is dirt or something but the stain is permanent. I have the navy version of these and unfortunately the front part of both of them has faded into a weird pink shade. I don't even know what's the reason, it may be the strong sunlight? idk. However, this doesn't happen to other vans styles. I will try other ones though.

        Good

          Comments about Vans Era:

          Vans has been my favorite brand of shoe since I was in elementary school some 30+ years ago. This style of the Era is timeless and iconic. Still one of the best skateboarding shoes around. When I was a kid, I chose Vans because that's what all the best freestyle BMX pros wore. Once I felt how well they worked with my bike AND gripped my board, I stuck with Vans. You won't be disappointed.

              I use the product for casual wear. They are very stylish and fit great. I was very upset to see that after 3 uses, the inside lining of the left shoe totally ripped out. Along with that, the front lining of the right shoes ripped as well. I was very unhappy with this purchase.
