Firstly I would say that the laces are a little long, and thats why I deducted one star - it never looks good when you have to tuck them in done up or wear them undone and loose. The low vans have short laces and these have less lace holes than those, so why they supply laces maintaining a length that would put an anaconda to shame is beyond me.
Other than that these are a great shoe and a really great price. The chucka/desert boot style in a Vans trainer is really individual, allowing you to keep a skate style while wearing something in current trend.
I wore them on a visit home and my Dad fell in love with them, so I bought him this pair for fathers day. He was so thrilled he rolled his trousers up and pranced around like a pony with a sugar lump for hours. Now I cant wear my trainers when I'm with him but luckily we live in different postcodes.
Enjoy these shoes (tip - they come up around half a size larger than your normal fit).
These were very nice, ordered Tuesday and they arrived Thursday (in time for the bank holiday weekend) unfortunately the packaging had been damaged but the shoes were unaffected. After waking around the house with them for a couple of days I decided they were just too tight for my feet width wise, hence the 4 stars, and had to return them, sad really as they are really smart shoes.
