The classic that never dies! Chucks, despite the common misconception, are indeed true to size. I don't understand the fuss over the "size down" trend here. As a simplistic canvas and rubber shoe, they are not going to snug like modern sneakers. It is no surprise that so many reviewers say to size down but also say their shoes are narrow. Buy your true size and Chucks are not narrow. Comfortable too - Pete Maravich didn't need arch support, neither do you!

Shoe was poor quality. Rubber sides began detaching from canvas after 2 weeks and canvas tore after 1 month. Style and comfort were good, however. Zappos recommendation on sizing was accurate.

Timeless classic still thankfully made in an age of overdesigned, unattractive athletic shoes. It's important to follow the advice in the product posting and order a size down from your regular size.

Love these shoes. The advice to size 1/2 size smaller was accurate. I am a 7 1/2 normally and the size 7 fit great. Comfortable and light; perfect feel with some no show thin socks. A great casual good looking sneaker. Not your shoe for exercise though!

I'm a long-time wearer of Converse Chuck Taylors, and I purchased this pair for my upcoming wedding. The gray color is wonderful - a little less stark than the traditional black and white. I've always loved wearing the low-tops and high-tops. The laces allow for a good fit, and my heels don't slip. I typically wear somewhere between a women's 7.5-8.5, and these fit in a men's 6 (women's 8), so I consider them true to size. They're usually very durable. I knocked a star off of comfort because there is absolutely no arch support, but this is easily reconciled with a pair of insoles (a must for me with Converses).

This is my first time trying this classic shoe. I had high hopes after hearing friends say how much they like these but I am only marginally impressed. The fit is looser than I expected but a smaller size might be too small. The tapered toe is not my favorite because I feel like it makes my feet look longer than they are. That probably also contributes to the problem I have with the sizing. Finally, the price is a bit high for such a simple canvas shoe. If I hadn't had a coupon I probably would have gotten something else.

Classic shoe - how can you not like Chuck Taylors- Guaranteed to make you run faster as any 10 year old kid knows - Only thing it was recommended to get a half size smaller then your normal size - I did and found it to small - Exchanged for my regular size and it fit perfect -

These shoes are comfortable kind of dress shoes that are a nice change from sneakers. I wouldn't wear these on a day where I have PE at school, they are not comfortable for me to run in but comfortable to hand out in all day

I wear a woman's size 6 1/2 and took the advice of a lot of other reviewers and ordered a 5 1/2 instead and it fit perfectly. I am very pleased at the quick processing and shipment of my order as well. Will definitely be ordering from this site again in the future.

My first time buying converse. Normally I buy Vans. These shoe are like clown shoes. I ordered a 10.5 like all my other shoes but these Converse were so long and narrow. I'd recommend ordering a smaller size then you normally wear. It hurt's my feet to wear these. I won't be buying Converse ever again.

What can I say, they are low top Converse. If you own Converse, you know what they are like. I have the flatest feet known to man and they aren't the best thing for my back but I love them. Again, if you own a pair, you know this.
