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 Old Skool:

    I've had a pair of these for ~8 years. They are by far the most durable pair of shoes I have ever owned. My pair is ready for retirement and I will definitely be ordering another any day! I absolutely love these shoes. They're simple, durable and I always feel like a bad-*** wearing them.

      Comments about Old Skool:

      These are great except that the heal rises up to a "stylish" point that actually digs into the rear of your ankle. Actually caused me to bleed after one day! I am trying to figure a way to cut the offending piece off, but may just end up writing these off. Also, very little cushioning if you walk a lot. Too bad, they are very nice otherwise.

        A true classic pair of Vans. Oh, who are we kidding - this is just an all around classic pair of shoes! Nice and sturdy and last forever. Only thing I wish they had were the tongue slits for laces in order to keep the tongues from sliding off to the side.

          Delivery was OK, the shoes were very very narrow
          and I use a reg width and could not get my foot in it. I just donated them to a local charity.

            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.

              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
