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.

An oldie but a goodie. Lavers continue to exude great style and once they dirty up a bit, it's even better. Not a lot of bells and whistles; these just look good (although mine will never touch a tennis court).

These are my favorite shoes. They are lightweight, look tight, whether wearing shorts or pants. I usually buy a pair every other year, alternating between colors (they do not carry the grey color anymore), because I wear out the rubber but mostly because these shoes are dirt magnets. I wish they carried the grey color because it hid the dirt pretty well. Obviously, if you want to preserve the pristine white color, do not hike bike skate beach in these shoes. I have had a pair for the last nine years and will continue to wear Rod Laver for awhile.

I'd also recommend: Creative Recreation, Supra

It has been a great experience buying at Zappos. In my original order I had the wrong size sent to me. Their customer service is amazing! As soon as I told them what had happened they sent a new pair of shoes at no cost overnight! Mistakes can always happen, the important thing is how they solve them. Thank you Zappos I will definitely buy from your site again.

The re-issue by Adidas is terrible. These used to be the ultimate summer sneaker. I weighed them when I bought them against my 3 other pairs purchased year ago. They are 4lbs heavier. Horrible job by Adidas, destroyed a classic.

I love these shoes but after they got wet they started to smell like cat piss. I mean they stink and are now unbearable. Great shoes if you don't get them wet.
