    Love: - the vintage look - the slimmer look - same size as all other Vans I own The one gripe I have is that this shoe can cause some major chafing on the heel. It's nothing a couple of heel liners can't fix though. And for people with wide feet... BEWARE! My feet aren't that wide but any wider and they absolutely will not fit these shoes. The shoes are "slimmer" for a reason. Other than that, they're great for summer and back-to-school!

    So I've been wearing authentics for years. As a female I always found this unisex (a.k.a. men's) shoe a bit wide. Like even if i tightened the laces all the way my foot would still slide around a bit width-wise. So I was excited to see the authentic slim, I thought they would fit more like a regular width woman's shoe. But they're even more narrow than that, they're like a Narrow width woman's shoe. The length seems true to size. But the fabric part that is supposed to fit around the foot is quite shallow as well, I have to leave the laces almost totally expanded. Also the back part of the shoe is cut so high that it digs into and chafes my heel. This is a new style, and I think they're still working out the kinks.

      Love these shoes! At first they are a bit stiff, but once they break in, they fit perfectly to my feet.

                    Sizing is uneven. I consistently wear 7 1/2 and the sizing among your styles is uneven. I had to return my latest 7 1/2 order as the sizing was wrong. It was too small.

                      I needed a good pair of tennis shoes in general. I wear them to school and when I'm long boarding. They are perfect for skating because they have good arch support and they don't give me feet cramps or anything.

                        The back of the shoe is a little stiff so it rubs and chafes against my skin, but other than that it is fit well, comfortable, and cute!

                            The coral is a little brighter then it actually looks in the picture, but these will be great for the summer. Can't wait to wear them to the beach!
