Who should buy the Vans Slip-On Stacked

Besides fans of the classic Vans Slip-On, the Stacked version is also for:

  • people who need kicks with a superb amount of traction

Who should NOT buy it

  • This sneaker is not recommended if you don't like break-in periods. Since this pair fits a bit inflexible at first, it is highly suggested to wear it several times to enjoy its comfort fully.
  • If wearing socks is not your thing, this kick might not be the one for you. Its heel feels a bit rough and might cause you blisters. 
  • Users with wide feet better look elsewhere as Vans designed this to have a bit narrow width on the forefoot. Check out our collection of wide sneakers for your other options.
  • If you hate weighty kicks, this sneaker might displease you. Its thick sole adds a few grams to its overall weight.

You might need a heel guard in this kick

Wearers complain about its scratchy, seaming sharp as a razor heel. Prolong use of this kick might shred your skin on the heel; thus, it is better to wear socks or heel guards while wearing this.

Vans Slip-On Stacked vs. Slip-On Platform

The Vans Slip-On Platform and Stacked virtually almost look identical. They both feature the classic upper of Vans Slip-On updated with the elevated thick sole. However, they differ in a few details, such as:

  • The thickness of the Slip-On Platform's sole is 34.5mm, while the Stacked is thicker by 7.5mm.
  • The gum rubber outsole of the Platform has the customary waffle pattern; meanwhile, the Stacked has a more aggressive version. 
  • There is an additional foxing tape on the heel and toe of the Stacked whilst it is absent on the Platform version.
