The Old Skool, the Vans classic skate shoe and first to bare the iconic sidestripe, is a low top lace-up featuring sturdy canvas and suede uppers, re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear, padded collars for support and flexibility, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.

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 wear these daily after work. I spend most of my time in work boots. So it's always nice to slip these on after a long work day. They are extremely comfortable to skate in. And when i wear them to the gym all my teammates ask me where i got them.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
