Love these sneaks! Remember ladies it's 2 sizes down in mens. It's weird that the sizing suggestion on Zappos is just 1 size down...too big. Any who, love!

No arch support. Bought these looking for something to substitute my all time favorite SL-72's, which Zappos stopped carrying recently. The SL-72's fit like a glove. On the outside, the Dragons look nearly identical. Inside, there is no arch support and my feet clunk around in them.

I usually wear size 12 in all my other shoes; read that these ran small so I ordered size 13, and they still crushed my toes and were smaller than my size 12 Chuck Taylors, no thanks!

I'd also recommend: Puma, Saucony, Converse

I loved the style of the shoe and really wish that it could have worked out. I wore these for a couple weeks hoping that they would stretch out but my feet were just too wide. No matter how much I loosened up the shoe. I even wore it without tying it up at all and my feet hurt. Unfortunately I had to return it. If you have wide feet, this shoe probably is not for you.

Quite possibly the worst fitting/uncomfortable shoe I've ever put on my foot. The outsole is VERY narrow (the design makes it so that my big toe and pinky toe actually fall outside of the outsole), so you get some wicked pressure points all over the fore foot. My feet hurt so much after use that it got to the point where I could barely walk. I just can't wear them at all. Now, they just sit in the corner of my room. Definitely felt like I wasted money on these. For others, don't waste your money if you have normal/wide feet. If D-width is normal and C-width is narrow, I'd say that these are more like a B-width (very narrow). In addition to the width, I felt that the shoe lacks much cushion between the rubber outsole and the insole. In other words, if you step on a small rock, you'd feel it all. I'm just going to have to stick to my Nike ID Free 5.0's. Not the cheapest shoe, but it fit my needs and leaves my feet sore-free at the end of the day!

Classic. Love my new shoes! Brings me back to the good old days! Not a lot of cushion in the shoe, but the heel seems to have just enough. Great for walking around town and casual dress.

These are classic. The shoes look and feel good. No break in was needed. They are comfortable right out of the box. They are a bit wide so some people may say they run a little large in size. I wear these shoes to work everyday. I would recommend them for casual wear as opposed to a sports use.

I'd also recommend: Puma
