I love these shoes. They fit perfectly and they are comfortable. The neon yellow/green attracts attention--in a good way.

These are my favorite shoes ever! However, I usually buy the mens and had to go up a half size in womens because they were a bit narrow & tight.

I needed some comfy tennis shoes to walk around all day in for a week solid on vacation. These totally fit the bill! Great support, really cute color (pink), and fit true to size! I wear an 8.5 and that is what I ordered. :) Love them! Thanks Zappos!

Perfect shoe - I purchased green/orchid and the colors are great and I especially like that they are vegan! They are true to size just like all Asics shoes I have owned.

When I first tried these on, I was apprehensive that the arch area would be too narrow or tight (I have relatively flat feet) but after wearing this a few times, the shoes loosened up and they were fine. I wear these sneakers on weekends when I'm walking around the city and they're perfect for that. The shoes are extremely comfortable. They have enough of a lift so I'm not stepping on my jeans (unlike Pumas). If I had more closet space I would look to buy a few more of these shoes in different colors.

I was looking for a new pair of casual sneakers, but with a pop of color. The Green/Orchid Petal are definitely that. Great arch support (now I realize how much I'm missing it in my other casual shoes.) One note, the "orchid petal" looks like a soft pink in the picture. It actuality it's rather purple. But the green is fabulous and it's vegan! woohoo.

I went to visit my aunt and uncle who live in a little place an hour from Cleveland, OH and I had these shipped to their place on the 22nd of December, and by the 24th, she got em. I'm easily diassapointed with how long other places take to ship stuff because zappo's did an awesome job even though I could imagine they must have been super busy! These shoes are lightweight, are really good to my arches, look good but are practical. And they're vegan, which is a big plus. Definitely worth it, you don't notice the arch support right away but when you do, it's awesome. Definitely planning on another pair in a different colour.

I LOVE these Onitsuka Tigers! They're are my favorite to just walk around the city in. I don't think they have enough support for jogging, but they're perfect walking shoes. They're cute, they come in fun colors, and they make your feet look small. I generally find that they run a tad on the large size, but also the sizes can be very inconsistent. I often buy a few sizes at a time and return whatever doesn't work (love Zappos free returns!). One small issue: the back of the shoe sometimes irritates the back of my heels while I'm breaking them in, but that always goes away after I wear them a few times. As a hint, when I get these shoes, I buy a pair in every color I like. This season I got them in blue/black and gray/light blue, both of which are very cute. The shoe colors change every season, and I find often there are several seasons in a row where I just don't like the color combinations, and my shoes end up getting a pretty raggedy by the time Asics stocks colors I like again. So if there's a season where you like a bunch of the color combinations, it's often worth it to get more than one pair if you wear these constantly the way I do.

I was saving money for these, and then they went on sale! Best purchase ever. I always make sure my shoes are comfy and stylish, and these rock! Also, I ordered half a size up, I'm usually a 7.5 but I got an 8. They fit perfect, and I have a wide width. Any shoe with some stretch proves to work with my width. You gotta buy these.

I bought these shoes thinking I would get a mediocre pair of day sneakers - turns out they are extremely comfortable and I have had a total of 4 people in public, that I did not know, approach me about them with compliments. Beware though - I thought they were white, blue, and peach, but the "white" is really quite an off white.

Super comfy, vegan, affordable, and super cute! I get comments all the time about how white and rad they are. I wear them while biking to the gym, and while on the machines at the gym. I'll probably be sporting them come 4th of July as well. Fits accurate if you already know your size.

This is my second pair of these shoes - new color, same great shoe. Lightweight, super comfy, always getting comments on how cute they are. I work on my feet a lot and find them a good all day shoe (especially since they breathe a bit). I'll be back for more. And Zappos, how I love thee! On more than one occasion you have surprised me with overnight shipping. When I am expecting my shoes in 4-6 days, nothing makes me happier than coming home from work the next day to surprise overnight shoes. Thank you!

A real show-stopper with great comfort and support. A "retro" look that is terrific with shorts, capris, jeans and casual summer skirts. Every time I wear these sneakers, someone asks where I got them! I recently had knee surgery and need comfortable, supportive shoes and these are perfect. Ordered them in two other combinations, I liked them so much.

This shoe is by far the best casual shoe I own. I bought a pair in 2004 and was still wearing them up until the new ones I just bought (2010). I loved the fast service as well (they upgraded my shipping at no additional charge). The shoes are cute and go with everything, and Zappos has awesome customer service!

The shoes are great. Great fit. Lighweight. And look good. I got lots of compliments on them. The best part for me was that they are lightweight. Some of athletic shoes can be really heavy and wear you out by the end of the day. These counter that but without sacrificing comfort. I love them with my jeans and khakis.

I like these athletic shoes. They are not heavy like most of the major brands, and are great for the gym and walking. Light and airy, they don\'t make those of us with size 12s look as if we have canal boats on our feet. Although I ordered an 11-1\/2 in this shoe, I have a narrow foot. Someone with a wider foot should probably stick to the full size.

Really cute shoes and I haven't seen them on anyone else. Very comfortable but not a lot of support if needed. I would definitely buy in more colors-this color combination is perfect!

These are not only the coolest shoes but the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned! I have the one in brown and pink and they match with just about anything... jeans and sweaters, shorts, whatever. These are my go to shoes whenever I go out. These will be the only comfy shoes I'll buy.

I bought these shoes in Feb. 2009 in pink and black. I absolutely love them. If I was rich enough, I would buy the same shoe in every color. I recommend these shoes to everyone. They are a bit wide, but that worked out perfect for me because I have slightly wide feet. They are easy to clean and stay looking new and fresh. I have seventeen years old and they are totally "in" right now. But seriously... don't waste your time looking for other sneakers. These are the best!

Cute - I have the gray/salmon version of these shoes. Be warned, they are pretty bright and shiny. My sister gave them to me as a gift to add some color to my wardrobe. I almost feel I'm a little old for them, and I'm only 25. That being said, the shoes are comfortable, easily fit my orthopedic arch support, and have decent cushioning. I normally wear a 10.5 or 11, and she got me an 11. They are a touch big, but I'm not sure that the 10.5 would have been large enough. They breathe really well, so they are not warm enough if it is below freezing. Perhaps this will be nice in the summer.
