Just got these in the mail today. Amazing fit. extremely comfortable. I wear a true 7, glad I read the reviews because they do run a half size small, I ordered a 7.5 and they fit perfect! Super light weight, great for summer. The mesh is breathable and the sole is sturdy. If you require a high arch support, these shoes are not for you, but maybe with an insert they could work-you'd probably need to go a full size up in that case.

Fantastic casual shoe. Fit snug initially so I was hesitant to keep them but after wearing them for about a week or two, they fit fine. These shoes are incredibly light weight and the fabric body of the shoe is lightly padded. These are not meant for heavy duty anything, they are for going to the mall or an outing. The inner sole of the shoe is thin, you will be stepping on the foam bottom more than anything. As such, there is no arch support. Sometimes my feet feel hot in them, but no sweaty. Each "style/color" has a differently knitted body. Some look like a jersey, and some look like canvas (but aren't). All in all, great shoe, light, just unlace the shoe before putting it on; it's a bit hard to get your foot in.

Holy smokes, these are possibly the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I don't wear "running" shoes casually, so I've never bought Nike Free type shoes or anything like that. But, I have always wanted that level of comfort. I'm usually wearing all black Chuck Taylors, or some type of other all black casual shoe. These shoes are a cross between running shoes, and Vans. They don't look athletic like running shoes, but they are a little more "stealth" than Vans. Either way, they are insanely comfortable and incredibly light. I think the heaviest thing about them are the laces - sturdy thick round laces that make the whole shoe feel very sturdy, and very light. Sizing was right on. I'm trying to resist from buying 2-3 more pairs. This may be the best shoe ever made.

Bought these shoes for my husband. He said they were extremely comfortable but the toe box was way to pointy for him. He said they made him feel like an elf. So we are sending them back. :(

I was looking for a shoe to wear with jeans, pants, or shorts. The etnies Scouts do the job! Very comfortable and light. I travel a lot so comfort with a nice look is my choice for long travel days. I will take them on my next trip this week. I already wore them to a BBQ hang out with many of our friends, with lots of kids running around so having a comfortable shoe to keep up with the kids helped. I am happy with the purchase and of course with the Zappos fast delivery.

I love this shoe! Out of all the skate shoes I have skated in, this is the most durable, and comfortable. 10 stars!

I am leaving this review as I have returned to Zappos to buy my second pair of Etnies Faders. I purchased a pair last year and have been very happy with them. They are my everyday shoes, and I ride BMX and mountain bikes with them, and they have held up well. They still have plenty of life left and I will not be tossing them soon, but they are just starting to look a little ratty for work - which is a fault of my lifestyle, not the shoe. So I just ordered my second pair. I will agree with the sentiments of the other reviewers; these shoes run a tad small. I normally wear 10½ shoes but the size 11 ones fit me perfectly. The width seems on par with my fairly average feet. I wanted light shoes that could take some abuse. I found it. By the way I am equally happy with my Merrell Tucsons for outdoor/hiking; far as I am concerned for an active life, these are the only two shoes that I will need for 99 percent of my days.

I bought these for my upcoming trip to Europe. I was looking for something low profile that was as comfortable as a sneaker but was somewhat more of a "fashion athletic" for walking. I think these are going back. They feel like they are "cutting in" on the inside of my foot (not harsh, just uncomfortable). My feet aren't unusually wide but these just didn't feel right. Still on the hunt for the perfect walking shoe!

DO NOT BUY THESE SHOES!!! I ordered my first pair of these shoes and within 3 days the sole started separating from the rest of the shoe by the outside part of the heel. Within a week it was totally separated. Thinking it was just this one pair of shoes, I got another pair. SAME issue! It's not a coincidence. These shoes are defective.

Based on the other reviews on this item, I decided to just order a full size larger, since everyone was saying they run small. I can confirm, one size larger is what you want. I normally wear a 12, and the 13s I got fit great. Overall, these shoes feel like a solid shoe with nice padding in all the right places. A lot of the accent material around the outsides is a synthetic plastic mesh, which I think will hold up nicely and keep the shoes looking good after a lot of wear. I've always enjoyed the quality of the Etnies brand, and I think these shoes are great, especially for the price.

These are extremely comfortable for walking and casual wear! But take note that these are not good for skateboarding! Because they are so light, they will rip and tear very fast. I recommend getting a tougher shoe for skateboarding, but these are the best that I have ever worn for casual wear!

I have had these for a year and a half and wore them hard. The tread and grip is still good while the pad in the sole of the heel is the first thing to really fall. It has been worn very flat. Compared to a pair of the DVS dirt series which is made for dirt jumping on bikes, these have held up way better. The DVS fell apart before I had them for one year and they were a lot more expensive. These are the cheapest size 14 skate shoes and I am happily ordering my second pair right now.

The first pair of these I got (June 2013) lasted well over a year, but the second pair (September 2014) is already falling apart in several places -- in less than 6 months. I will not be buying a third pair.

I generally wear a 10.5 and purchased a 11 because I recall that Etnies run small, with the 11's my toes were hitting the front of the shoe. For reference, I wear a timberland size 10 Otherwise, I like the style, suede has a nice look though might not hold up to heavy skating.

With or without socks this shoe slips on my heel. They seem to fit, but I can't get them tight enough. I'll give them some time and hope they get better. Never had a shoe slip like this.

They seemed to run a little small at 11.5 I was on the fence about sending them back for a 12. Wore them a couple days and the padding broke in just fine. Comfortable, lightweight and breathable. Just what I wanted.

I bought these for my hubs. He's beyond annoying when it comes to shoe shopping, which is why I appreciate Zappos so much. He actually liked these so much that we ended up getting them in 2 colors. Comfort is definitely his #1 priority, and these were the only style out of about 10 pairs that he deemed comfy and padded/cushy enough to keep, so these shoes are a big win in my book.

Runs a bit tight, leaving little room for natural toe wiggle. Moderate quality-look to it. The design of the side/tongue down to the sole causes tight pain due to a seem in a bad spot.
