This backpack is great for grocery, but not waterproof at all. It is surely better than average cordura backpacks, but they did make a stupid mistake while projecting it. The rolltop flap is composed by 2 flaps stitched together. The flap in the same side of the back is backpadded with tarpaulin. The front flap is not backpadded. Unfortunately, the front flap of the roll-top is the one where rain is going to fall and stall in shower rains (yes, I did put it into my shower). Water lets in. The only part which is really waterproof in this backpack is the little pocket in the front waterproof laptop pocket. Anyway, it is a great backpack for grocery and you will be dry for short distances in light-medium rains. But don t expect to come back home dry during heavy rainy days. It sucks because you think you are buying something waterproof, and it is not. It is such a mess because it is a great backpack. You can put a 15.6 laptop without sleeve in the front pocket. If you have a sleeve, it doesn't get in and you put it in the main compartment. It is really true, anyway, that this backpack is really comfortable even when expanded you don't feel the weight. It is okay if you want to buy a backpack in general. But do not expect it to be sealed like other ugly backpacks.

he only issue I have with this shoe is the sizing. I normally wear a 10.5 in US Mens, so I ordered this shoe in 10.5 despite one review stating I should consider otherwise. I found that the shoe I got felt like an 11 so I got an exchange for a size 10. And that fit almost a little too small, but I got used to it, or wore it in, or whatever...Anyway, its perfect fit-wise now. The general comfort is good. I bought these shoes because I have a short commute to work and school so I ride a fixed-gear bike with toe-cages/straps. I can tear up a pair of shoes in a few months this way because the cages will wear them down. I figured these shoes would do better because they were made with the same material as the Chrome Bags, of which I had one that lasted about 8 years. I haven't had them that long but the construction seems very sturdy and I am appreciative of the fairly minimal aesthetics of the shoes (except for the symbol). Other than having a larger than usual 10.5, I am really liking these shoes. They feel very comfortable on and off my bike after they've been worn in. *Note: These shoes are ones that do squeak when wet and on tile floors... in case you're wondering and that's a concern and that's something you notice about shoes that makes you feel a little weird. You are weird but so am I.

Been wearing Ishak for a few weeks now; very comfortable. I love the orange/white look. The right shoe hurt a bit on my heel at first but good now. I'm very satisfied so far.

These shoes are awesome for moving around. Not the greatest for standing on your feet all day in a work situation. They look great and are constructed well. I bought an 8.5, I'm usually a 9 in Adidas. The 8.5 were too big, so I had to return for an 8 which was perfect.

Great shoes. Stylish with a very high quality build. They were uncomfortable the first day, but after a few days are breaking in well. My guess is the initial discomfort is due to how strong the materials are, which is a good thing.

As a fan of Chrome bags, and as somebody for whom biking has torn up many cheap, low-top sneakers, I was excited to purchase a stylish sneaker with a water-resistant upper and a reinforced mid to help ease the burden of pedals on my arches. My first purchase was thankfully accepted in an exchange for a half-size smaller by Zappos, as my heel kept slipping out when attempting to bike with these shoes in my normal size. When the exchange came, I put on a few reinforcing bandaids and tried them on around the office, where I am active as a customer service specialist, but not rigorously so. By the end of the day, I could barely walk. When I took them off at home, I noticed that despite my best efforts, my feet was bloody with blisters under the protective bandages. I'm going to try some new tactics toward breaking in these shoes, as I am past the point of no return with an exchange, but please be careful when wearing these shoes for the first time. They really do look nice, though, and are built based on a terrific concept.

Good looking shoe which in theory would be a great biking shoe. However, they're poorly-made garbage, and mine started to fall apart after 3 months after use exactly as designed. I wore them exclusively for biking to work (14 miles round trip), then moderate walking around work. The rubber surround for the sole is already separating, meaning they'll leak like sieves as soon as the rain starts, then completely fall apart shortly after. Complete junk. Buy something else.

I love this shoe - I have 2 pair. But they have changed the design somewhat. I ordered the same size I had worn previously...and it is a full size too big. The shoes are going back.

I bought this mostly for the style and because I got my first set of clips for my bike. The sole of this shoe is very stiff. As a result, sometimes when I'm walking with these on my heel starts slipping out. I find that pretty annoying. The metal clips clack on the ground when walking, which is to be expected by pretty much any shoes with clips. I wouldn't wear them while walking around very long. It's still a good idea to bring a change of shoes if you are going to be off your bike for a while. These do look great while biking though! Also the toe of the shoe near my pinky toes where they have some of the stitching is kind of firm and rubs against my foot sometimes. It's not too bad, just a little annoying. If I were getting new shoes, I'd probably try something else as I haven't tried many brands. I also own a pair of Chrome's Turk clipless shoes, which I love. Maybe I should have got the Turk shoes with the clips instead.

OK, I've already written a review, but now that I've used this bag for a few weeks I can only enhance my earlier review. It is so cool. It is a well balanced bag, and you have to watch the video to see how to manipulate it around your body effectively. I love it, and now am thinking I need the large one too!

I've been really happy with these. A few things worth noting: - Despite being technically unisex, they are a masculine-looking shoe, without a doubt. I'm a woman and at first waffled about keeping them, but I've gotten used to that. - They are comfortable from the get-go. No blisters or awkward places that rub. That said, they don't have much arch support, and they run a tad wide because they're unisex. I ended up putting insoles into them to provide more arch support and heel cushioning, and it gives them a more snug fit. - I thought the color was tough to identify online. It's called "Denim" and does have a slightly blue hue to it in person, but they tend to look mostly like a dark grey with hints of purple/blue. It depends on what light you're in. - The piece at the back is reflective, which my wife didn't like and thought was sort of distracting, but I don't mind it. If you're cycling, that's great. - They run big. I initially ordered my usual size and went down a half size in the end. That was a much better fit.

Chrome Inc messenger bags are very unique and youthful. I got this one since it has the most "briefcase" style. Now if I can get the gumption to use it. Hopefully I don't look too old...They just need to use less straps and velcro and perhaps more concealed magnets.

Wanted black slip on sneakers, Van slip ons make my foot look long, Toms wear out a little too fast for heavy wear. I'm usually a 91/2, sometimes a 10 if the shoe runs narrow. Got the men's 8. It's a little big because I didn't factor in the fact that I probably won't wear socks with these.

Used these for a 5 day, 120 mile trek across Switzerland. The shoes were very comfortable with the exception that they felt a bit narrow. My feet are a lot wider than most, so this is no fault of the shoe. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

This is a great shoe. Similar to Vans but much better materials and construction. I've been wearing these regularly for 7 months and they have not developed holes, nor has the sole delaminated from the upper. If and when these wear out I will immediately buy another pair.

I bought these shoes to wear at work when riding my bike to work. I have Shimano M540 pedals so I thought these shoes would work perfectly. The shoes look great. They are a little more narrow than size 9.5 shoes normally are. My biggest complaint is the spd cleats are not recessed enough so they drag along the ground just like my bike shoes. I was hoping these would alleviate the tap shoes effect of normal bike shoes. They do not.

I have been commuting to work for 2½ years on my Surly Crosscheck with platform pedals. I have always used Five Ten brand shoes with no problems. I decided I liked the look of the Chrome Truk grey shoes, bought them, and had worn them twice while not on the bike before my first ride with them. The other morning I put on my Chrome Truk shoes, grabbed my bike, and headed to work for my first ride with said shoes. I hit a small pothole, my left shoe slipped off the pedal, and I proceeded to crash. I shattered my navicular bone in my foot into roughly 50 pieces and am going in for surgery on Thursday. They are going to try to repair the bone and fuse the joint. The surgeon said I will never be able to run, but luckily will be able to transition back into biking in six months if everything goes well. On top of all that my shiny new shoes are all torn up. I know that this is probably not the shoe's fault and just coincidence that it was my first ride with them, but I cannot help but think that my foot would not have slipped off the pedal had I been wearing my trusty Five Tens. The Five Tens seem to have much grippier rubber and once I can start riding again in six months will be what I wear exclusively from now on. If fashion is all you care about the Truks will work. If you want your shoes to stay on the pedals, get something else.

Ordered a half size smaller than I wear in other shoes and they fit great. Work as well off the bike around town as they do on it. Uppers are good for straps or flipping pedals up and the soles are nice and firm at the balls of the feet. Look great with shorts or jeans.

I have both this and the Victor. I prefer this for the stuff I carry over the Victor in that the small pouch in the Victor is too small for anything I have. My Samsung Note4 fits into the ext pocket of the Chekhov perfectly. The roll top pocket can hold a full size Ipad3, my ext battery, a folded Bose OE BT headphones, and a few other EDC items. (The Victor only could hold my Nexus7 with not much space for anything else). The buckle is heavy and can cause damage to your surroundings if you are not careful. Material is extremely durable and H2o resistant. Zappos shipping was faster than when I bought stuff direct from Chrome. The packaging was a well packed box vs a plastic bag from Chrome. All in all, I highly recommend the Chekhov!
