I've worn the same par of Vans for almost 15 years. No other pair of shoes I've ever owned have lasted this long. The inserts are pretty much flattened to where I can feel every pebble of gravel under my foot, but the exterior is still perfectly intact minus the usual dirtiness acquired over such a time. I ordered a new pair of Vans and I'll probably get some new inserts for my current ones.

Never owned a pair of Vans in my life, never really interested me (not my style, I'm a Reebox man myself). Then again I wish I could find a pair of shoes that lasted me 15 years (most, if I'm lucky, last me 2-3 years and then they're shredded). I might have to look into them but I'll have to find a place that carries them locally as it's hard to find shoes in my size (and when I do it varies by brand).
Yeah I'd never normally order shoes online, but seeing as these are the same style with just a different color, I felt pretty confident in ordering them. I wear a 13 in some brands and a 12 in others. Its really odd how different shoes are. My feet are kinda wide too so if there is a wide option I generally have to go with it. Hopefully these won't be a "They don't make them like the use to" type deal, because shoes that last 15 years def doesn't make Van's any money off people like me that will use things until they wear out completely. The only reason I ordered these was I really liked the way they looked. Like I said, I'll probably get new inserts for my current and keep using them until the day they fall apart.
