Too many threads cluttering this section on sizing.

Sizing on Vans will always vary on the MATERIAL of the shoe, as well as the model.
ALL TRUE WHITES IN ALL MODELS (AUTHENTICS, CHUKKAS, SK8 HIS, PRISON ISSUES, OLD SKOOLS) WILL RUN .5 SIZE BIGGER, IF YOU HAVE A NARROWER FOOT I'D RECOMMEND SIZING DOWN A FULL SIZE.

Recent Supreme Collaboration: Color Pack = True to size. Syndicate sizing.

Half Cabs:
Canvas Half Cabs = ?

Suede Half Cabs = Stay true (size down is possible if you have a skinnier foot)

Leather Half Cabs = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Hemp Half Cabs = Stay true.

Chukkas:
Canvas Chukkas = Size down .5 or 1 Full Size [Depending on width of your foot (Narrow feet, size down 1 full size)]

Suede Chukkas = Stay true, or .5 size down if you have a narrower foot.

Leather Chukkas = Stay true, or .5 size down if you have a narrower foot.

Hemp Chukkas = Stay true, or .5 size down if you have a narrower foot.

Chukka W)Taps = I recommend sizing up a .5, they tend to run really tight in the toe area.

Authentics:
Canvas Authentics = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Suede Authentics = .5 size down.

Leather Authentics = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Hemp Authentics = Stay true.

Authentic W)Taps = Stay true or .5 size up if you have a wider foot.

Mr. Cartoon Authentics = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Era:
Canvas Eras = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Suede Eras = .5 size down.

Leather Eras = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Hemp Eras = Stay true.

Authentics vs. Eras = Authentics fit slightly longer.

Sk8 His:
Canvas Sk8His = Stay true.

Suede Sk8 His = ?

Leather Sk8 His = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Hemp Sk8 His = ?

W)Taps Sk8 His = Size up .5 as they fit tight around the toes.

Mr. Cartoon Sk8 His = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Slip Ons:
Canvas Slip Ons = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Suede Slip Ons = Stay true.

Leather Slip Ons = Stay true.

Hemp Slip Ons = Stay true or size up .5 if you have a wide foot.

W)Taps Slip Ons = Size up .5 as they fit very tight around the toes.

Prison Issues:
Canvas Prison Issues = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Suede Prison Issues = ?

Leather Prison Issues = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Hemp Prison Issues = ?
Same Sizing applies to Prison Issue His.

Old Skool:
Canvas Old Skool = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Suede Old Skool = Stay true.

Leather Old Skool = .5 size down or stay true if you have a wider foot.

Hemp Old Skool = ?

If any changes should be made, just post.

If you are reffering to the True White Sk8 His, then that is definitely believeable since ALL True Whites in ALL Models seem to run .5 big.

Vans x Proper = Stay true.

I have a pair of Purple ones, and they seem to run fairly same as canvas ones.

if Hosoi IIs are just like the first ones, then they shall be made out of suede, I've never owned a pair of suede Sk8 His, which is why I left it blank.

ok, i can see that you are a little retarded. this isnt a comparison chart, fuckstick. this isnt comparing sizings of different models. if you read the first post, you would know that if u were thinkin of gettin suede half cabs that you should stay true (or size down if u have a skinnier foot). you would have known that if you werent such a fucking cunt. i swear to god i wish you douche nozzles would go back to ISS.

i noticed Vaults usually fit bigger and Syndicates are true.

you also have to look at things like the inside lining if its leather i usually have to go a half size down.

^^ Yes they'll fit you. A little tight around the toes though.

They wont fit SMALL, they will fit TIGHT, seeing as ALL W)Taps Chukkas were made with super tight toe areas.

Just take the insoles out, and you'll be good.

from my experience, suede half cabs see little to no stretch. it's usually canvas shoes (authentics, etc) that are prone to stretch.

you'd be better off just sizing up a half.

I wear a 12 in Nike SB, the Cardiel Pendletons, and Bulletproofs. Do you think that size 12 Chukka W)TAPS would fit me alright (the black ones with the white sole)?

^^^ Yes.

If anything, they'll fit a bit tight around the toes before you break 'em in (All W)Taps Chukkas are really tight in the toe area). After 2 or 3 solid wears, you'll be good.

I stayed true to size with my bulletproofs and they were fine after a few wears, but generally you should size up .5 with the bulletproofs I believe due to the extra padding.

Yes .5 size up on Bulletproofs is better.

But if not possible, just stay true and pull those insoles out, that's what I did on my whites, and they fit fine.

^^^ size up .5

If not, just get your regular size and take out the insole. Bulletproofs are really padded up but if you take out the insole, I think they fit better than sizing up.
