First time I got one of these Asics was like 3 months ago, when I found a pair of yellow and blue ones in Mexico. For like 25 dollars was a no brainer for me. Since I have loved them. Why? Well, first, my foot is kind of big, and I've tried to use Puma Ferrari, and Adidas Samba and they always make me look goofy. These ones don't. Second, they are super comfortable. Freaking amazing comfortable. Should you buy this? Yes. Do yourself a favor and buy these tennies. They are absolutely amazing.

Bought these in the synthetic vegan upper and was disappointed. Compared to my Ultimate 81s, they feel very cheap -- not just because of the nylon material, but because the insole is flimsy and has no arch support. The stitching on the outside of the foot where the toecap meets the stripe rubs my foot into a blistered state every time I wear them unless I use a prophelactic Band-Aid. And, yes, if you go for the vegan uppers, your feet will be hot. Insanely hot. Soaking in a non-breathable cup of sweat hot. It's pretty gross. Stick to a different style in this brand!

Had to return the first pair in exchange for a pair 1/2 size smaller. As always, Zappos made the entire process a cinch. Comfortable and light, plus great color ways to chose from, these are excellent.

I'd also recommend: New Balance Classics

Great shoes! I tend to buy shoes like this and these did not disappoint! I love Asics and these are great to wear around town and to walk in (just walked some 20 blocks in them, feet felt great after). Recommend to anyone who enjoys Asics or flat bottom shoes who is looking for a new pair.

These shoes are the bomb diggity! Great styling, lightweight, breathable, durable, and comfortable. The rounded heal also makes it a very nice driving shoe. I purchased these because I couldn't find the discontinued Tiger Fencing LA in my size...another great shoe from Asics.

There's absolutely no reason to ever order next day. The last six or seven times I've ordered anything through Zappos, it arrived the very next day. I'd never buy shoes or suggest anyone else to buy shoes anywhere else. As for the shoes, they're exactly what I expected.
