Sup guys, just got my new black and white Old Skools in the mail (I am an ex-pat in Taiwan and they don't carry my size here). These are my favorite shoes, but I have one big complaint this time. What happened to the red label on the back heel? It is black and white now. I know it's a small thing, but that was one of my favorite things about the shoe. These are 'Old Skools', why change it? Also, update the picture if they are all going to be this way from now on. It is misleading to show a picture of one kind and actually send a different one. Change it back, they look like knock offs now. Score is for the old style. Peace.

Been an avid Vans customer for a very long time. I haven't bought Old Skools for quite some time now and I decided to get some. When i first put it on, they felt great. But as i started to skate in them more and use them for everyday purposes, the shoe started to really wear down and hurt my feet. The right shoe started to wear down right under my big toe, and soon a hole started to form. Then the shoe started to really hurt the sides of my foot. I dont know whether i purchased a bad pair or thats just how they make them nowadays. I've been thinking about trying them out one more time but a little relucltant.

    My son wears these shoes in black and blue/black almost daily. He feels they cushion more than the other styles. They come in size 14!

      I got these right on time for my first day of school, and they looked GREAT. Only flaw was I got a blister from the right shoe, and it might have just been because it's a new shoe, but I'm not sure yet. Other than that, I love these and they're super cute and comfortable.

              Comments about Old Skool:

              I love the look of these shoes. I had shoes similar to these that lasted for years but eventually got worn out. This was my upgrade! They are great shoes for skateboarding or casual wear, but if you are planning on doing a lot of standing or walking I do not recommend these because they don't have any support. But there are different shoes for different occasions so as I said before these are great shoes for casual wear or skateboarding.
