7 Best Vans Sneakers, 100+ Shoes Tested in 2022
Vans shoes are all over the place, getting much love and attention not only from skaters but anyone who loves sneakers. Most of today’s silhouettes are revamped versions of Vans’ flagship skate shoes and casual styles.
Whether it’s your first time buying a pair of Vans shoes or you’re building a sneaker caboodle and prefer some classics to add up to your list, our top picks might help you choose which pair (or pairs) to cop (and collect).
We wear-tested over 100 Vans sneakers and pooled the best ones into different categories that will address your need for style and function.
How we test sneakers
To give you an unbiased take on the shoes, save you time and effort, and help you simplify the process of choosing the BEST Vans sneakers, we summarize all verified reviews, eliminate the spam, and rank the shoes.
Each review gets weighed and rated as it goes through our system-generated Corescore tool. Through the same tool, we get to rank the shoes on a scale of 0-100.
It doesn’t stop there. We wear-test each of the best-rated pairs and have carloads of Vans sneakers shipped to us in batches. Every pair is subjected to a month-long, thorough grind test, wherein we dedicate each day of the week wearing Vans for practically multiple activities.
We also do regular rounds of flipping, sliding, grinding, and dropping at the skate parks and rate each Vans sneaker based on durability, support, flexibility, and comfort.
