I guess I didn't really read the description carefully. I thought this was leather uppers. It's some kind of mesh material. The sneakers do look exactly like the picture. And they are nice. But I need leather because they last longer for me so I'm sending these back.

Zappos' service was great. However, the product was not. Red and white paint from the sides of the soles rubbed off onto a very expensive Marley floor at a local dance studio. I had to apologize to the studio owners and might be on the hook to pay for damages. The shoe's construction was comfortable. It looks great too. I wish the paint did not rub off.

Just got mine in yesterday. Wore them for the first time last night. I am a size 7.5 in mens and they fit perfect at that length. The shoes runs a little narrow which I dont really care for, but Im not sending back for that either. The shoe is a little snug right now but Im waiting to see how it breaks in. The arch support is great. Not used to having that in my other shoes so its kinda hard to get use to at first but Im sure in the long run its going to be great for my foot. So over all, I love this shoe other than its pretty narrow. I gen. like wider shoes.

Probably the coolest looking shoes I've ever owned -- Rod Lavers have always been stylish, but in black they're even more so. The fit is just about right, and they slip on and off much easier than most, thanks to the leather-like material at the heel. My only complaints are with the soles, which are extremely slippery (especially on carpet), and the odd shape of the insole (which has a bump opposite the arch that can be very distracting when you first put the shoes on). Overall, great shoes.

Good fit, casual walking shoe. No surprises here, though I would purchase an add on insert sole. The one that comes with the shoes is plain jane and doesn't offer much comfort.

I'd also recommend: Puma

I love these shoes! They are so "clean" looking. They do not have that athletic look about them. They are designed for someone who knows labels but doesn't want "over the top" tennis shoe attention. The inside cushioning is very nice even the arch support. They are understated (3-stripes of Adidas not part of the look) however the Adidas emblem on the heel is perfect!
