Vans Classic Slip-On Shoes
Advantages: Nice fit
Disadvantages: Not great in the rain
I have a pair of Vans Classics and I like them a lot. They are similar to my Converse shoes but in a slip on version. I have had my pair of these for a year and I bought them from the Vans shop. I was lucky to get them reduced in the sale.
When I was picking out my Vans Classics I decided to get the simple black ones as I thought they would go with more things than some of the coloured ones might.
My Vans came in a strong and well made box with the Vans branding on it. I think the packing was good and also protected the shoes well as it was well put together. The shoes were in perfect condition when I got them.
I think these Vans Classics would be good as a gift if you wanted to buy some as a treat maybe. They look very retro and are in that classic skater style that can look great with slim fitting jeans. When I wear mine like that I really think they look great.
The special rubber soles of my Vans are a good thickness and they are textured which makes them good when I wear them. I don't feel like I will be likely to slip or slide when I wear them and I put that down to the thick soles.
The sides of my Vans Classics have a kind of rubber bumper on them and this gives the edges of my shoes plenty of protection. It also protects my feet when I wear the shoes and the toe cap which is also rubber stops me from knocking my feet against things.
The material used to make up my Vans Classics is a plain canvas. I have worn the shoes in all weathers and have gotten wet feet when wearing them in the rain sometimes. I would say that these are best worn in clear weather as although the soles keep dry in the rain the uppers can get soaked through.
I like the padding in the insoles of my Vans Classics as they make them more comfortable when I wear them for longer. I have had no problems with the shoes at all and I think they are a good shoe for causal wear.
I paid £24.99 for my shoes which was a sale price. I think that compares well with the other leading brand rival for canvas casual shoes Converse. You can pay a lot more than I did for mine, but I think checking out prices before you buy would be a way to save money.
I really like my Vans Classics and find them comfortable to wear. They are easy to clean and get a wipe over when they need it. I would recommend them as I think they have a good retro look that is timeless.
Summary: A good casual shoe
