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.

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

Cons

  • 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.

    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.

                      Black/white Eras yellow

                      By VansEra

                      from CALIFORNIA

                      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.
