My first pair of SeaVees, and they've quickly become one of my daily shoes. I haven't tested how water-resistant the nylon is, but it's retained its stiffness (unlike the cheap, thin canvas used in shoes like modern Chuck Taylors) after about a month of wearing several days a week. The insole likewise makes them more comfortable than comparable inexpensive canvas shoes like Vans or Chucks. They come already fitted with the gray technical nylon laces, but they come with a set of white cotton laces if you feel like changing up your look. One minor note to keep in mind is that my shoes came with a plain gray interior rather than the red pictured.

I have always been impressed with SeaVees, especially from a fit and comfort standpoint. The only fault, in the past, but not in this instance, has been a tendency I thought to run narrow. These have just enough room , perfect for me anyway and the size is pretty much right on the money, too. The quality is so superb (always is from Seavees). Flawless. And they also have the nicest and thickest inner soles! I will definitely be back to purchase more. And Zappos, you cannot be beat for your service! I thank you so much!

I'd also recommend: Clarks, Timberlands, Merrells, Rogues, Vivobarefoot

Very comfortable and fashion forward shoe. Material is water-resistant, which is nice this time of year with the back and forth weather. Blue color is more bold than a lot of my navy blue tennis shoes. Shoe laces stand out just enough, but not crazy bright like some of the others. Happy with my purchase and will buy SeaVees again.

I'd also recommend: Converse

These are really narrow shoes. Which is too bad, because they look great. Had to return.
