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.

These Adidas are true to size. Look awesome with shorts or jeans. They are a dress shoe more than a sports sneaker. Inner sole is very hard so you can walk around in them for a better part of the day but not every day.

Great shoes and lightning quick delivery. However the rubber soles of the shoes are a bit thick and heavy, more than I would have expected. Not a dealbreaker.

I purchased these for summer shoes to go with blue jeans. They are very comfortable and look great. The back is a bit low which was rough on my heel for a few days, compared to the other shoes that I wear. They are inexpensive, yet still squishy enough to not be poorly made shoes. I am impressed with these shoes.

I'd also recommend: Nike

The original Rod Lavers...cool looking shoe, but I guess I had forgotten how heavy they were. Also, one of the metal eyelets pulled out after only a few days. As always, great buying experience at Zappos.

Great shoes, originally ordered size 11 - they were a bit large - Zappos sent me 10-1/2's while I was sending back the 11's. 10-1/2's fit perfect. Great shoes and great service.
