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.

I found men's/women's equivalents to be way off. I wear an 8.5 women's, but the men's 7.5 were a full size too big for me.

I love these tennis shoes. I'm strictly using them as casual wear and they are comfy & look great. None marring sole so I can wear them on my boat too! Mesh material on the uppers allows air circulation, my feet stay nice and cool. I recommend them for casual, not sure I will use them to play tennis in; there are lighter shoes out there. Overall a 5 star for casual wear though.

Simple yet stylish old school tennis shoes. I was looking for a shoe that was good for travel but could be used for an occasional tennis game. These fit the bill. Okay fit and comfort.

Unfortunately, I have to return these, because they run far narrower and longer than my current Adidas sneakers. They were also a little heavier than I expected them to be. However, they look great and would likely be very comfortable. If they came in a wide, I would definitely exchange and keep them.

I'd also recommend: Born, Clarks

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.
