This is a very special shoe. It's super comfortable, durable and has a classic look. It's all I want to wear anymore. It does run a little large and since I'm between sizes I went with the smaller. It stretched to fit perfectly despite my very wide feet.

Love these shoes. Super light but holding up great (roughly 1 month). Super comfortable. Great for casual/daily wear. Sole is a little thin, and water does seem to get through fairly easy. Dried out easy as well.

These shoes are fabulous! I use orthotics for plantar fascia, and find that I don't need them in these shoes. I also have received many complements on the look of these shoes. Very cute! I'm ordering another pair very soon!

I have worn the shoes for 1 month now, for all purposes except endurance (long distance, exercise-focused) bicycling. They show little wear, remain very comfortable, and provide good shock absorption. The cushioning throughout the shoe is quite cozy.

Growing up in California I remember these shoes first coming out almost 20 years ago. Obviously, the design has stood the test of time like only a handful of other sneakers. They are a great value, extremely comfortable and good looking. I just cycle through the various colors. I am VERY bummed to hear Simple shoes are going away!!!

I've recently purchased my second pair of simple shoes. Not because my old pair can't be worn- they are still the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I can't vouch for the other models, but I have a green and tan pair of these bad boys, and they rock my socks off. Please honor Simple, as they are no longer making these fine feet covers. Buy a pair. Or two!

Simple makes, quite frankly, my favorite skate shoe/sneaker ever! Well built and comfortable from the first wear. I have been a devotee of Simple for many years now; I always come back to Simple after I try something else.

Excellent shoe. This is actually my second pair in this color. I also have two other pairs in different colors... each purchased a year apart. The oldest ones may look like hell now but they are still super comfortable. Not since I was a kid did I have a pair of sneakers that felt so good to wear that I couldn't thrown them out no matter how trashed they look. To me that's the best compliment one can give a sneaker.

Fantastic! super comfy right out of the box. No time required for breaking in. This is the second pair of Simple shoes I have ever owned, and I couldn't be happier!Great support, classic and stylish. Deititely will not be my last pair. More than worth the price. Get them! Get them! Get them! Thanks Zappos!

These are classics and like most classics they only get better with age. I have owned several pairs of Simples over the past 20 years and I keep coming back to them.

I'm wearing them right now. I started out with the beige version and then bought a spare beige and the blue version. A truly comfortable all-purpose sneaker. Thanks!

These shoes are comfortable, understated, and very solidly made. They are extremely versatile and impervious to all weather conditions. I recommend them to anyone who wishes to those who want a very stylish shoe that is free of the increasingly brainless sneaker-freaker (and freakish) design.

Wow! These sneakers are cool. They look a bit retro, but they are comfortable beyond belief. I have received many compliments on the looks and I have told people where to get them, (Zappos). Of the many pairs of shoes, etc. I have purchased from Zappos these rank right up there with the best. Thanks.

Purchased these for my 13 year-old son. He loves them. We did put a pair of superfeet inserts in (he is ridiculously flat footed), though he said it felt like they had good support. So far they are holding up well. Great looking and stylish...important to a 13 year-old.

Snazzy looking! I like these shoes very much, apart from two cons, the little breath-ability equals sweaty feet. Very little arch support and shock absorption.

I really wanted these shoes, but I have high arches and more times than not I need a wide size to accommodate the arch. Note to Simple: I'm sure the demographics would support making this shoe in a wide width...just my 3 cents.

Great shoe! I've been buying from the Simple brand for 15+ years now. They've never let me down. Matter of fact, this specific shoe was my first pair of Simples. Enjoy!

I have had these for about a month now and they are nice and broken in. They are comfortable to walk in all day and so far seem durable. I recommend these for the style and comfort!
