How can I tell if an item is in stock?
If the item is listed on the website, it is generally still in stock, however, we cannot always guarantee this as our stock levels are constantly fluctuating.
If you want to check stock availability before purchasing, give our Vans Team a call on 64 9 886 9856. Press option 1 once prompted. They'll be able to check if there is any stock left and even place an order securely over the phone for you.READ FULL ARTICLE

I think I ordered the wrong size?
Sizing can be tricky when ordering online!
If the shoe size looks different on your confirmation email to what you selected at the checkout, it's likely due to default sizing.
Vans default to the US Men's size when ordering. For example, you might be a US Womens 7.5 however it will show as US Mens 6 at the checkout and on your order confirmation. In this instance, a US Mens 6 is equivalent to a US Women's 7.5.
To double-check the size on your confirmation email matches the size you selected, check out our size guide.
Still doesn't look right? Reach out to the Vans Team below.READ FULL ARTICLE
What size Vans should I buy?
Our shoes are sized according to the US standard and all our shoes are unisex, so no one is excluded from wearing our kicks!
When purchasing an item from a unisex range, your invoice will reflect the US Mens (default) size.
For example, you might be a US Womens 7.5 however it will show as US Mens 6 at the checkout and on your order confirmation. In this instance, a US Mens 6 is equivalent to a US Womens 7.5.
