Vans Alternative for Grown Ups
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 12
I've been wearing vans for 20 years and always loved them, but i came across Seavees several years back and gave them a try. I absolutely loved them. This is now my 6th pair of Seavees and my 3rd pair of Legends and I absolutely love them. The fit is a little more loose compared to vans, but has much more added comfort from the removable footbed and added arch support. I could wear these all day, whereas Vans will kill my feet by the end of a day of walking. The quality is slightly better than Vans. The slightly higher price is worth it and it's a must buy if you catch them at a discount. As far as sizing goes, it's true to size for me. I usually wear a 12 but I usually buy 1/2 size down in the similar Vans Authentic. The toe box is slightly narrower than the Vans Authentic, so unless you have a narrow foot, you will probably need a 1/2 larger in these in comparison to Vans.
