    Shoes to live in

    I don't wear these to skate because ...I don't skate.

    What I do, however, is live in Slip-on Vans; I wear them whenever and wherever I can. Slip-on Vans are probably *the* greatest Summertime (or anytime) casual footwear ever made ...whether you skate or not. The shoes are relatively light, flexible and comfortable. Besides comfort, what I like most about these shoes is their high, retro-coolness, style factor; you can get 'em subdued or all-out unique. There's almost an endless number of styles from basic black to Beatles to embroidered ...solid colors and checkerboards and all the "special editions" in between. And the canvas breathes ...the better to keep your dogs happy and if they do overheat ...well ...then there's their signature feature; you just slip 'em off or slip 'em on. Make sure to get yours sized right for how you wear them. I wear mine sockless for the most part or with thin, no-show socks on occasion. For me, my normal shoe size works great; the shoes fit snugly at first but break in perfectly. You don't want 'em too big or they'll get sloppy on your feet. The classic Vans waffle soles, besides looking cool, are grippy on any surface, wet or dry, you choose plant your feet on. Even "off road" they hold their own and you'll leave probably the most recognizable tread prints in your wake.

    If I had to make one improvement in these shoes it would be an upgraded insole. While the basic canvas insoles are okay, there's no reason why they couldn't be upgraded to a more comfortable level. Also, if you're like me, you mostly wear your Slip-ons sockless ...at least in the warmer weather. And this is where better insoles, ones with some anti-microbial treatment (the better to fight "stinky feet"), or at least removeable and washable, would put these shoes on a much higher plane comfort-wise.

    For me, I'm not a skater but I live in these classic Slip-on Vans. They have both a high comfort and casual retro-style factor that goes great with shorts or jeans ...with the right style/colorway you might even be able to pull them off with some casual kahkis. Get them sized right and these will be the shoes you live in.

    Not so great.

    I do not recommend these shoes for anything. I don't even wear them walking around or fishing because of the way they fit around and hurt my heels.

        Comments about Vans Classic Slip-On Skate Shoes - (embroidery) khaki/turquoise:

        These embroidered Vans slip-ons are flat off the hook cool with a unique style that definitely stands out from the crowd. They have a neat Native American/Southwestern vibe to them. The kahki colorway with the gum soles gives these slip-ons a very "moccasin" look. The foxing on them has a low profile ...about an inch tall ...that helps give these slip ons a more sleek profile. These are definitely geared toward casual style wear and that's what I wear them for. I wear 'em with slim or skinny jeans and they're classy enough to compliment khakis.

        Fit and finish are first rate. The embroidery looks beautiful and well done; stitching is tight. The blue design has subtle color variations punctuated with contrasting black elements. It's a definitely noticeable design …but not in an "in your face" kinda way. The backside of the embroidery (and most of the interior of the shoe) is covered with a black canvas lining. The ankle collar has "leather" look (vinyl) trim that compliments the main khaki color.

        Otherwise these are your basic classic slip on Vans; they run true to size and are as comfortable as any other. The Native American moccasin flavor puts these Vans in a unique category. I really like them and most folks who ask me about them are surprised they're a pair of Vans.
