Considering I easily walk outside over 2 hours each day and go through a pair of shoes within 2 months... Hell no.
 

That and I just don't like the looks of "vans" shoes. They are effing ugly, IMO, with that large white sole.
Not to mention, that outside sole is made of some kind of foam instead of actual rubber, meaning it gets used even quicker once the thin rubber sole underneath is gone from the friction of walking/running on the pavement.

How do you go threw a pair every 2 months with walking a minimum of 2 hours? I use sketchers because I find they last the longest and are usually cheaper than NB (NB's only last me 2-3 months).

 

I used to do about 3 hours a day going to my old workplace, now I only do about 1.25 hours of walking. Due to weather I've also cut back walking after work (I hate rain, snow fine rain nope). When I did walk a lot I usually went threw a pair every 4 months, and we are talking over 100km a week. I don't have over 7000km in Pokemon Go for nothing :P

Unless you go threw roughed terrain like in the woods.

Sidewalks are garbage and not level, here. So my shoes end up scratching up on the asphalt (and small rock/salt during winter... and left over rocks after winter) a lot even without me wanting to (when you buy shoes, there's "texture" and ridges on the bottom of it right? When I'm done with it, it's usually flat...).

Then there's the sides, mainly up front, that randomly break apart (Like right now, my steel toed shoes somehow got a small hole on top of it... how the fuck did that happen, I've got no clue).

Add to that the back of the shoes just disappearing from friction with my feet while I walk... and suddenly the shoes need to be replaced every 2 months.

 

And that's 2 hours walking outside, inside I'm easily walking another 6 to 8 hours... if not more.

 

Overall, could be because of a lot of reasons, be it my posture, my fast pace, the terrible state of the sidewalks, etc etc.

The last time I bought Vans was when the camo Bobb Fetts came out.  I don't really skateboard anymore, but I still have them.  I also have custom Harley Quinn Chuck Taylors, some leather pumas with animal skeltons, and some rando running shoes for when I do 5ks.  Also got Deadpool bunny ear slippers, and Wolverine Snow Boots.  I don't have a problem!
