I own several pairs of Vans Ashers because they're a solid, no fuss shoe. I chose the black on black as a replacement when my original checkerboard pair wore out and I have to say that they look so slick when I have them on. I get to have the benefit of an athletic shoe with an elevated look.
The fit is comfortable and they last for years before needing to be replaced. I will keep coming back to Ashers as long as Vans continues to make them.
