These are hands down the best sneakers I've ever had. They're stylish, provide good arch support (a welcome change from the Onitsuka Tigers I owned before these!), and are long-lasting. This is the third pair of these sneakers that I've purchased, and each pair has lasted about a year when being worn every day. An added bonus: there's a bit of heft in the heel, so if you're short it gives you a little height boost!

I was actually disappointed with this shoe. The sole is so thick and heel is so high that it's difficult to flex at the balls of the feet and if feels like I could roll my ankle easily. Also the opening is so wide that slimmer jeans do not fall or sit right over the shoe. I was thinking it would be similar to Puma Roma's but it's really not.

Great shoe! I had a pair that I wore for five years! The trefoil design on the sole was worn down and eventually cracked, but after five years, what can you expect. I have a narrow foot, so the width feels 'true to size' for me. I bought it for the 70s/80s styling, but I love the way the shoe cups your heel and the cradling comfort around the mid-sole.

These shoes are very comfortable even for those with wide feet. The leather is soft. The shoe goes great with dark denim and Polo shirts. The perfect summer shoe and they arrived in 2 days for Standard Shipping.

One of the most comfortable shoes ever made; I own six pair in different colors and will purchase more as colors become available. The shoe fits like a slipper and is very lightweight and a great casual shoe for going out and about. Highly recommend this shoe.

These shoes really are funky fresh!Really they are terrific. I am female so I had to buy a man's 6.5 to fit my woman's 7.5 feet. I like the black rubber on the toe and in the woman's version it is white. Anyway, these fit great. Super comfy. I have narrow feet so these are great for me but in my opinion they are on the narrow side especially for a man's cut. they look and feel great and Zappos got them to me lightning fast. I did not mind paying full price for the product and service! and that is saying a lot!

Not the best arch support and a little narrow but will do fine outside of the gym and off the field. Best really as a very stylish casual shoe, not any sort of athletic shoe. These do not run large at all and I had to go a half size up to find a pair that fits.

These shoes are very comfortable. For some reason the white pair are more comfortable than the maroon with white strips. Go figure...but they were a great purchase before going on a cruise where I did a lot of walking.

This is then 2nd pair of Samoas that I've purchased. I can't say one bad word. Fit and style are great and the price is right. Based on previous reviews, I went a half size up and the shoe feels perfect.

Excellent style, excellent comfort. A true classic. The sole is bouncy as you walk, giving the shoe an extra cushion of comfort. Very good shopping experience.

I purchased the men's shoe because theirs offers more room in the toe box... I have an issue with bunions on right/left feet...The shoes were comfortable from the beginning. I have osteoarthritis in both knees as well and needed comfortable shoes... The shoes are very comfy for me and I like the look!!!

I love these shoes! They remind me of the 70's! They are comfortable after they are broken-in. I like the blue, but I may get some red ones. These are classic and understated. I love them!

Great shoe, very comfortable but does run a bit narrow. Zappos however is GREAT. They sent out my exchange pair the next day. And with the FREE shipping both ways, it can't be beat!
