    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.

    When i wear these shoes i get really bad blisters on the back of my heels. I have to wear super thick socks with them because heel socks (which are my favorite) are too thin. I was disappointed because i really like the look of the shoes for everyday. I bought the shoes in purple and it looks really cute. I do not see myself buying these again. I own a pair of classic slip-ons and i do not experience the same problem with those. I think that this shoe should be made with a little more cushion in the heel and then they would be perfect!

      Comments about Vans Canvas 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 really can't stand how the shoes get a nasty crease line at the toe! But the shoes look great and I love the style.

          Comments about Vans Canvas Era:

          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.

                        Comments about Vans Canvas Era:

                        Vans changed the dye used in the black and whites so now they yellow when they fade. It looks awful. I've attached an image comparing an older pair of Eras (right) vs my latest pair (left). I hope they correct this in the future.

                                I'm on my feet all day where I work, so I needed a pair of comfortable shoes. These Vans are even more comfortable than the last 3 pairs I've owned. The red and blue turned out to be a great combination and I couldn't be happier with them.
