Men, beware of the low cut front / top part of the shoe. It is very low, almost a girl's style. It cuts into your foot. I have not worn them enough to know if this wears down or not. I really like the color, style, fabric, but not sure if they are going to work. They run large. Order 1 size smaller than normal.

Shoes hurt my feet and seemed to run a little small. Long time user of Zappos so no problem with the return.

I couldn't even try these on. The first shoe I took out of the box had a HUGE raised ridge across the heel. Looks like where the liner was laid in and glued was crimped up. This made it impossible to even get my foot in. Made in America, I guess. Leather seemed fine but interior/footbed seems thin and cheap disregarding manufacture issue. Didn't seem like worthy of a re-order. Get it together.

I purchased this product as a replacement to an older version of the same shoes. I would have to say that the quality has sharply declined. I wore the original pair for three years before deciding to throw them away. I have had the latest pair for less than four months and they have already fallen apart.

A really nice take on the classic plimsoll style. I have only one complaint with this shoe; the dye on the inner lining comes off on your socks or feet.

One of the best all-around shoes I've ever owned. Fits like a soft glove and I've worn it as a dress casual (looks great with jeans and a sweater) and in slightly more formal situations. Comfortable all around and easy on the feet. Have to give this one a full five stars.

Total crap, I guess I should know better than to buy another pair of shoes off this company. The style is nice, but the construction is probably the poorest of any shoe I've ever owned. The sole just starts coming off the shoe and I've hardly even worn it, less than 10 overall wears.

So sad. I love the style but after under 2 months of normal wear, the bottom soles have split open. I've just been walking around the city that's about it, nothing crazy.

I love the style of this shoe, but it lacks in quality. It seems like it would tear very easy; I would not recommend them for any forceful activity such as climbing, skating, or any other activity that puts strain on your shoes. They are not that comfortable either and are pretty flimsy.

I have owned these shoes for exactly a month and I already need to replace them. After less than a week of wear, the rubber sole on one of the shoes started to come off (it has since fallen off completely). The heel on the other has separated from the rest of the sole and I am waiting for it to come completely off as well. By the second week the interior pads would come out along with my foot every time I took the shoes off. I have since had to cut off the cloth portion of the padding to keep it from bunching up under my feet when walking. This is all after light to moderate wear, and I do not even wear them every day. I am used to shoes still looking like they are new even after the first couple of weeks. The last time I wore these somebody said they liked them and asked me if I remembered where I got them because it looked like I had had them for years. When I told her I had had them for less than a month, it took some convincing before she believed me. I am willing to give the company the benefit of the doubt, I am sure it is entirely possible I just got a bad pair. But when a pair of expensive shoes starts falling apart after less than a month of normal wear, I cannot rate it higher than one star.

Using Zappos is great. They have a great choice of shoes and they deliver very quickly. The return policy is also very easy. I would recommend Zappos to all my friends.

Once you break these shoes in, they are the most comfortable pair of shoes you'll ever own. And I get compliments on them all day long. Perfect summer shoe. You don't need socks and since they're mesh material, they breathe really well (no odor). I just ordered another pair in a different color.

I've had nothing but compliments, backhanded though they may be, about these shoes since starting to wear them. "Are those beach shoes?" "Where's your tightrope?" "Those look like you're going seal killing." I think they're great. They're a bit floppy and get dirty easily. They're certainly not meant for distance walking. But in a casual environment they're super stylish without being horrifically flamboyant.

Best shoe for Spring/Summer! Wore them at Coachella and was comfy all day long. The mesh allows your feet to breathe and the insole is bomb. This Slip-on is a great alternative to wearing sandals. Highly recommend.

Bought a pair and like how they look. Had very sharp seam on inside where the expandable strap was sewn to the shoe. Dug into my foot like crazy. Trimmed sewn hem and shoe started falling apart. Used shoe goo to hold shoe together. Comfortable now but we'll see how long they last. Would be a good value at about half the price. But with construction this shoddy these shoes are overpriced.
