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.

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.

Love these shoes. Started buying them since the stans smiths have become so pricey. Definitely get dirty faster but a quick was is all that's needed to freshen them up.

The best! These classic sneakers are so cute and so on point. They do get softer as you wear them. I love them and get compliments every time I have them on. So glad Adidas has not ruined a great old classic!

I'd also recommend: Nike, Converse, Superga, Vans

I ordered a men's 10 which is a lady's 9. They fit great. But I thought a little wide. I knew they were canvas and not leather, but trending right now. I will break in prior to really wearing. I love them for the sneaker and the price point.

These are an updated yet traditional version of the original. It fits well, is very comfortable, just needs a bit of wearing in. I recommend stain guarding them or they won't be white for long!

Zappos provides a service that I rate as the very best. Prompt and efficient. I bought my first pair of Adidas Rod Laver sneakers back in 1978, not a day has gone by that I did not own a pair of these sneakers. They are comfortable, stylish and durable. I have used them, at one time or another, for handball, jogging and everyday use, not the same pair, of course, but, anywhere from 10 to 15 pairs in the past five decades. What more is there to say.

I'd also recommend: New Balance
