I'm kinda disappointing notes in the Varvatos Converse lately. I had a par of the first Black Leather and white toe Varvatos converse. The leather was soft and it felt like a luxury shoe. I thought this would have been a blacked out version of the same shoe. It's not. This shoe feels like 3rd tier, Pakistani leather you would find at swap meet leather goods... i tried putting them in shoe stretchers hoping it would soften the leather but nope. The soles are pretty garbage as well. I swap out my soles from my Vhuck Taylor II's. The Lunarlon sole is thinner but way more comfortable. I'm on the fence about returning these shoes. I've worn them for about 5 minutes so far around the house. Don't think I can last a full day in these outside of the house.

I got this shoes last week, love it, really cute and like other converse shoes it's comfy. I'd say it's the fancy converse too, not like the typical converse you see all the time. I agree with other reviewers though it is narrow, so if you have wide feet this shoe won't work for you, otherwise if you don't mind paying more for a pair of sneakers go for this style of converse, fashion + comfort = Chuck Taylor All Star Vintage Ox Of course Zappos thanks for fast delivery ð???

Easiest pair of sneakers i've owned. No shoelaces. Slip on, slip off. Also, trendy and they look cool. The biggest complaint is in comfort. Without laces, it uses a tensioner of sort (like a stretch fiber) that causes the tongue to crumple. This is ok except the crumple causes an uncomfortable pinch that you have to forcefully pull the tongue (to flatten) to remove the kink. If you have trouble bending over, you will not like these shoes because you have to bend over to straighten the tongue out. That is how uncomfortable they can be. If the makers can somehow add something to reduce the tension, so we can control it, that would be a nice value added feature. These shoes ARE comfortable besides that. So I believe they can be improved. However, as they are now, I have a hard time giving this 5 stars.

I sent these to my grandson at college. He was so excited to get them. He loves them. The ones I sent were slip-ons, no laces.

My typical shoe size is a true 7.5 overall in a shoe. I usually wear a 7 women's in the canvas All Star. These were a little different, being leather vs canvas. I ordered two sizes 7 & 7.5. The 7 was definitely more tight across the foot in general and the 7.5 was better width wise but had a lot of slippage in the heel. Overall this style is more narrow than regular All Stars.... But an awesome looking shoe! I think I'll wear the 7's around the house with a thin footie sock and see it it looses a bit with it being leather and all. The length seems fine, I would have kept the 7.5 if it. Wasn't for the slipping...

Nice quality! Love the slip on/off factor for airports etc. This shoe ran long and somewhat narrow. I wore the low rise canvas Jack Purcell but the quality has diminished. So I tried these. They are a very different fit. Longer more narrow and at least initially, rigid fit. I was torn about keeping them but I'm not big on breaking in athletic/leisure shoes. I'll wear them inside on hardwood and see if they soften:), before my return.

Great style and details of course. How can something so simple be SO VERY uncomfortable!!! Just wearing them in the house was awful. Even tried some inserts,etc. No better. Bummer, because they look so cool.

I wanted to love these. I kept them even though they felt a little tight, I shouldn't have. The material is not cotton, more like old parachute pants from 80's. After I wore them it totally rubbed a bloody spot on my foot. I tried to streatch out with shoe horn but didn't work, it still has hart spot on the inside or right foot only. I tried the next size up but they were to big. Not as well made as these used to be. I wouldn't waist the extra money again.

I have never been able to wear converse because of the lack of arch support. These shoes have great arch support and are extremely comfortable!

They look great and feel comfortable. You should note that the photo for the "Ink" color is not accurate. There are dark blue and black stripes, it is not a solid black shoe.

These are excellent! The style is awesome and they are easy to wear. Some reviewers commented on the white elastic that keeps the shoes closed. I agree that a black/dark colored elastic would have been better, however the issue is resolved when you remove the inserts on the sole. They are rather thick and work just fine when you replace them with something slimmer, such as a dr scholls insert.

I really prefer the previous versions of John Varvatos chuck slips. I've been buying slips and laced JV chicks for many years. The white cloth elastic band is always showing when you're walking around in these shoes, thus making them them look a little dumpy. I know for a fact it's not just the pair I purchased... because I purchased them in gray, red and black. O_o wearable, but hope they bring the previous slip style back some time in the future.

Love these shoes!!! Just ordered them in black now too! I'm normally a 10.5 wide or a regular 11 and got these in the 10.5.... fit great! So comfy! Much more so than regular converse. Love them!!! Easy to slip on and go as a mom of 3!

Very cute, stylish sneaks, they feel very sturdy, but no arch support and very narrow in the toe. Unfortunately I'm returning them.

Have not had a pair of Chuck Taylor in many moons. Saw these and was looking for something to wear through airport security that was easy to slip on and off. Have to say these a WAY mor comfortable than any pair of Chuck Taylor's I have ever worn.

My husband loved the the original slip on Varvatos Chuck's but since they no longer make them I ordered these for him. The color "Ink" is actually dark blue and there are stripes on the shoe. This is our only issue with them, we wish they came in black. Even though he doesn't like the blue or the stripes he said they're the most comfortable Chuck's he's ever worn and kept both pairs I bought for him.
