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.

If you bought your last pair of Rod Lavers prior to early 2014, you'll be pleasantly surprised with the changes. This model has definitely been updated with a rubber formula on the soles that's heavier, more durable, and much less slippery than the last version (which felt and looked cheap compared to the original version before it). The green color is noticeably different too not quite as dark. But the biggest change is the sizing. In my experience, these run about a half size larger now. I've always worn 10.5 in Rod Lavers, Stan Smiths and just about every other Adidas sold in the US. But I was swimming in the 10.5's. So I ordered another 10.5 and a 10 just to be certain, and the 10's fit me much better. Thanks Zappos, for continuing to offer the coolest kicks of all time.

Another great buy and great experience provided by Zappos! I have bought all my shoes from Zappos for at least the last six years. Their return policy is unmatched and their shipping is lightning fast! I have always been 100% satisfied with every product I purchased from Zappos. I was so satisfied with this purchase, I ordered a second pair of shoes less than a week later. If you're looking for a variety of quality products at bargain prices, you've come to the right place. Give Zappos a try and I bet you won't shop anywhere else for your footwear needs.

I'd also recommend: New Balance

Took a while to get comfortable and I had to buy additional supportive insole. Fine for tennis now. Heel looks like it may wear through soon.

I read a bunch of negative reviews of this shoe on the Adidas site and was almost scared off from buying them, but was so sick of how unsupportive my Converse All Stars were and just really craved a basic looking sneaker to wear on the weekends while leading my middle aged working Mom lifestyle. Well I am so glad I gave them a try because they are everything I was looking for. Super comfortable, cute enough, and not heavy at all. I am not using them to play tennis, but I walked 4 miles or so in them the other day and they felt great. I love these shoes. If you are looking for a more comfortable alternative to Converse I strongly advise trying these out. Note, I wear a 7.5 or a 7 and got these in a 5.5 mens and they fit great.

Love the shoes. Love the colors. Comfortable for going out, but I wouldn't wear them all day every day. My only disappointment is that the suede on the toes gets very dirty very quickly. These must be worn with extreme care and cleaned regularly. I would have preferred a more easily cleanable material.
