The women's Authentic Slim shoes from Vans are the sleeker version of the skate shoe classic, and the amazing color choices will make your brain explode. Not literally of course, that would be horrifying.
I absolutely love these shoes. They are true to size. I wear 8.5 women's in brands like Nike and the 8.5 here is perfect. The slim fit is more feminine. And so are the little hearts. I have received so many compliments on them. They are a little stiff but other reviewers said that goes away after wearing them a little longer than I've had them. If you're looking for arch support, you'll need an insert because these are flat inside. I got really low (lower than no-show ankle socks) so they don't stick out and I am so happy with them. My only complaint is that the shoe laces are WAY too long. They drag on the ground.
