The Glow Shark Sk8-Hi Zip combines the legendary Vans lace-up high top with a zipper entry at the heel, sturdy canvas uppers with a glow in the dark print, padded collars for support and flexibility, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.

The pair of shoes that we ordered had the wrong label in them, and did not fit my son. We live in NJ, and the shoes are shipped from California, so my son had already waited a week for the arrival of the first pair and was so excited to wear them to school. He was so bummed that they didn't fit. I called customer service to let them know of the issue, and the man I spoke with was exceptional. He sent another pair over night to our address, and I am sending the other pair back for a refund. It is hard to get such prompt customer service these days, and I have to applaud Vans for doing so. I wish I would have remembered the mans name that helped me, because he deserves the credit and the karma. In the end my son is wearing them everyday and loving them. The shoes are great for skateboarding, and the zipper back works great for getting my 8 year old easily in and out of the high tops. Normal hightop shoes can be a real pain for a younger kid to get on, so we love them. Thanks!!

I love vans and wanted to get some for my son. He's 4 and it's only been a week and one of the shoes soles on the top has come off so now I have to it him new again. Disappointed that they didn't last longer. This shoes was made poorly. I wear vans. It's my preference if shoes. But I guess they don't make the kids as great.
My 6 year old absolutely loves these shoes! We constantly get compliments! I'm glad I went a size up because they fit perfectly. I would have had to return them if I got 12 1/2. Great quality shoe. We'll definitely be buying more often.

I buy my kids shoes from our local Vans store every year before school starts and they usually last the entire year before they grow out of them. This is the first year that both my boys shoes are falling apart within a few months of purchase. Different styles, but the same problem...rubber sole is separating from canvas part of shoe. I contacted Vans about my 5 year olds (his were really bad within 2 months of wearing them to school...and not even every day!) and they graciously sent me a gift card to purchase another pair for him. I feel silly contacting them again regarding my 6 year olds shoes. His have the same issue and it has been raining non stop here, so you can imagine how uncomfortable it must be to have soggy shoes by the end of day. It was a bit of a hassle to have to fill out a complaint form and scour my bank statements since the receipt had been long gone.. Perhaps its time to find another brand, which is a shame because they both (including me) love the style of Vans. The quality has just gone down, it seems.
