    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.

      Comments about Vans Suede/Canvas Old Skool:

      I usually get the traditional looking Vans Off the Wall, but I decided to go for something different with these, and I'm definitely not regretting it. I also do not own a pair of white shoes at all so I'm glad to have went with these.

        Comments about Vans Suede/Canvas Old Skool:

        I havent had a pair of Vans in a while, cuz the last pair I bought the seem tore and when I took them back they would not take them because it was over there return time. So I call vans and got no response. Not real satisfied on that deal, but I have worn Vans since I was 5 (1980) and have many pairs since then. I decided to try again and am very happy with this pair I just purchased. Thank you. Ryan Bebout

          These were uncomfortable in the width at the toe area. Not a lot of cushion.

                  I use the old school as my primary shoe wether it be for a work day, school or trips to the skatepark! I skate transition and these feel just right and I will always be buying the old school. This is truly a timeless classic!

                        Nice shoe, but ya it hurts a bit if I wear the shoes too long. Is there a way to mail the shoe back and get a size bigger?

                                I've tried many of the major brands of casual shoes, and have found that they are either too restrictive or too heavy, but when I tried Vans, I found then to be both comfortable, and light but substantial. I've been wearing Vans for the past 15 years and will continue for the foreseeable future. Keep up the good work!
