My 13-year-old son absolutely likes the shoes. Very nice fit and durable. He especially liked all of the Adidas signs on the bottom of the shoe. Very sick kicks!

These are great shoes. They fit well, look great, and are comfortable. My one qualm is that the gray is a bit darker and the orange a bit more intense than in the picture.

This is a very well designed shoe. It's much better looking than the Campus, and similar, but probably just edges the Samba as well. As far as comfort goes, all the Adidas Originals are a safe bet for that. If you want a stylish and comfortable shoe, get the Spezial.

If you like the Sambas, you'll love these. They look and fit almost the same with the exception of the Specials being a bit more narrow and constructed out of super soft suede. If you have wide feet, I'd probably skip on these. I have a really narrow foot, so they fit me like a glove. Anyways, these are amazing, both in looks and comfort. The arch support is there so they're not terribly flat, like the Sambas. Unfortunately, Zappos didnt carry the color combo that I wanted, the bright red with black stripes, which I saw elsewhere and bought. I've bought many shoes through Zappos, for the convenience and excellent customer service, and if the color combo was available, I would have brought them through Zappos in a heartbeat. I wore these for two days and got more compliments then I could remember. When I was purchasing them, these two black girls with completely obsessed over them. LOL. These are great. They look very posh with skinny jeans and just about everything else. Awesome, classic shoe from Adidas, as always.

I'd also recommend: Samba, Gazelle, anything adidas pretty much

These shoes are awesome. I actually bought these in red and black, a color combination that Zappos didn't carry, unfortunately. However, these shoes are awesome. I've worn them only 2 days and I've gotten dozens of compliments, both on the style and color of the shoe. They look awesome with skinny jeans and just about anything else. I have a pretty narrow foot, so for me, they fit well, and true to size, but it might be uncomfortable if you have a wider foot. Overall, these are awesome. Looks, comfort, style, everything. They fit and look very similar to the Samaba, which I am a huge fan of too. Will definitely buy these again. Great, classic shoe from Adidas, as always.

I'd also recommend: Nothing but Adidas (:
