So these run a half size large, which as an owner of a couple of pairs of these upper-crust Chucks, I should have known. But here's the thing: I dropped the return box at UPS on a Tues, and the smaller replacements arrived the next day! WOW! I knew Zappos was awesome, but that blew me away. Thanks for the GREAT service. :-)

This is my favorite version of Chuck's. When I tore my old pair, I was desperate as they were no longer locally available. It's my everyday shoe. I went online but most places want a lot more for them. Zappos beats everyone else's price by a stretch.

Bought these for my husband who has been a "one-star" fan since the mid nineties - they don't make the originals anymore and this was the closest to the original fit vs others he has tried. Fit accurately, look great.

Love the Chuck Taylor style Converse to begin with, but the John Varvatos design, albeit a bit pricey, is my favorite CT sneaker yet.

These shoes fit much different than normal Chucks. I tried 3 different sizes and no matter what size my foot slips out when I walk. I think the thicker cushion makes the foot sit higher up and causes it to slip. Removing the pad didn't help much. The style is nice and it's unfortunate as I really liked these shoes.

I purchased these for their unique styling, and they definitely fail to disappoint! These are a nice twist and upgrade on a classic shoe. One thing to keep in mind - and the reason I am posting this review, is that unlike the classic canvas Chuck Taylor Converse All Stars, these tend to run true to size. Normally I wear men's 13 and occasionally 14, but with canvas All Stars I buy 12. I purchased these in 12 and they are snug but thanks to the very soft leather, they stretch and are wearable. Also these DO have arch support to them. Overall a much better shoe - just order your regular size.

I love these shoes and wear them all the time. They're super comfortable, versatile, and get a lot of compliments (usually because the lack of laces). They've also come down in price, which is good because they get dirty pretty quickly. Unless you count flip flops, this is the first shoe that I've gone back and purchased again. Get them a size smaller than you normally wear.

Awesome quality, great fit. True to size. The look is amazing. I have received many compliments on its look. At first I was hesitant but when I received them they exceeded my expectations. The service from Zappos was even better. I am going to order the next pair in a different color.

These are way more comfortable than the All Stars I used to own. They are a little bit big - usually Chucks fit me tight so I was reluctant to size down. I walk all around the city in them and my feet never hurt which is not something I could say about the traditional version. They're also way cuter!

Love these! They run large had to change them from a 12 to 11.5. That's my bad for not looking at the "fit survey." Other than that, they feel and look great.

Chuck Taylors run big so I had to go through a few sizes find the right one. They're okay. They're nice. It feels like I might slip out of them.

Runs too big, had to run a shoelace through them because they kept slipping off when i walked. Ive always been a size 9 in chucks, but this size 9 was not thesame.

These are mega comfortable! I already own another pair and purchased a second one - that's how much I like them. Only thing is they run half size larger. I'm typically a 10.5 ~ 11 (US) and had to order a 10.

Let me start by saying I love these kicks! The insole in the Varvatos editions make everything so much better. I recently wore these on a 10 walk around Universal Studios. At first, I was sure I would regret my shoe choice that day, but in the end, no hurting feet whatsoever. I have a very high arch which makes it hard for me to wear Puma, Adidas, & Chucks.. But these are perfect. If you're into Chucks, you will not regret this upgrade.

I don't know why anyone would give these less than 5 stars. Just get a half (or full) size down from your normal shoes and these will be fine. Seems like one reviewer didn't want to admit that his shoe size was less than a 10. The soles/inserts are super comfortable. I've walked miles in these at a time with no discomfort. And, these are about the most durable shoe I've ever owned.

Nice, I ordered 9 instead of my usual 9 1/2 & fit was perfect. No comparison to cheap cons as these have removable insoles, but they do not come with laces. I'm too old for that look so I bought a pair & they are fine.

These shoes are great! They are super comfortable and look good, too. I find myself wearing these shoes almost everyday. They run a little big though. I should have gotten at least half a size smaller.

Love these shoes. The dark black, the ease of getting them on and off, they're comfortable, & the sole looks cool. It was worth the extra money to me. I had bought the less expensive version of the slip on and returned them for these. Happy I did.

Note that John Varvatos are 1/2 a size bigger than the regular Converse, I normally wear an size 8.5 in all Converse shoes, and I had to return them and exchange for a size 8, which fit perfectly. Other than that, they're great!
