I like these a lot more than my classic Vans. They are a little different and have a little more comfort and support. The black on black with the gum soles are my favorite. I will definitely be buying more pairs in the future.
If you ladies want some stylish/warm mittens these are a great choice. Its worth a few extra bucks to get a quality pair like this that will last you. These days with all the touch screen phones the removable finger warmers are great.
I bought this coat for my wife and the flannel shirt liner is stylish enough to wear out on the town. Excellent wind and water protection. My wife really likes the removable powder skirt so it doesn't get in the way when she doesn't need it. My wife is 5'3" 110 lbs and a small fits her great.
