Very comfortable (even more so than I remember them as a kid). Come with a pair of white laces if you don't dig the yellow (but I love the yellow contrast).

Pros: very cute. Cons: 1) No support. 2) Tight across the upper arch to the point that they are painful to wear for an entire day. I have rather narrow feet with low arches so if this is an issue for me, it will be much worse if you have a wider foot or high arches. 3) Terrible quality. I got these in April and wore them maybe twice a week through the summer. By July the material on top of the toes was wearing thin and a couple of weeks later they had actual holes. I don't expect much in terms of quality from canvas shoes but if they are only going to last 3 months(!) then you're better off getting a $10 pair in Chinatown than paying this much for Keds.

You gotta admit, these are a cute version of a cute classic. I normally wear 10N, but 9.5M was fine for me. They actually come with two sets of laces - one white and one yellow, so you can pick what mood your in. The grey is a great neutral - goes with everything for knocking around town.

I ordered these to wear without socks, and I went a half-size down from my regular size. My regular size looked like a clown shoe and had several inches of room beyond my toes. I don't have a narrow foot, but even the half-size down has a bit of room in the toe area (enough for thin socks). They would slip off if I were to wear them without laces. I probably could go a full size down, but I hesitate to do so because feet tend to spread out when walking. This is a slim, attractive, and classic shoe without bells or whistles; its simplicity is appealing. I haven't walked in them extensively, so I can't comment on long-term comfort or quality.

I was really looking forward to these shoes. When they came I was surprised to find they were snug and I wish I had chosen to send them back. I figured my feet would work into them. Well they haven't and I barely wear them because my toes are squished. Definitely not worth the price.

A great casual sneaker. I even wore these without socks, walking around all day on the city sidewalks in fairly hot weather and my feet didn't hurt, stink or profusely sweat. Now that's a good shoe.

Shoes are a little narrow and you have to break them in a little but after that they are very comfortable and go with almost everything. I really like the yellow laces.

These shoes were surprisingly narrow and felt very tight the first time I put them on, and I don\'t have wide feet and never have to buy wide shoes. They still make my little toes hurt after walking just 20 minutes. But I keep wearing them because they\'re cute and they go with everything. They also don\'t seem that sturdy, it\'s only been a month and the canvas is already wearing near the toe of one shoe. They\'re cute though!

Whenever my daughter or I buy online shoes Zappos is the place we go. Not only do they have great prices but they surpass any expectations in their shipping by sending items earlier than expected, often expediting shipping to overnight and always free of charge. Zappos is true to their word. Makes shopping for shoes seamless.

I like this shoe and wonder if I got it wet and wore it if it would then fit my foot a bit better. Perhaps after wearing a while it will stretch. Lovely and certainly a good value for the money.

This is a great simple shoe. I've been wearing mine almost every day since they arrived. It took a few days for me to break them in, but once I did they were perfect. I like the accent of the yellow shoe laces -- they do come with white ones, as well. All in all, this is a great purchase. The shoes are comfortable and affordable.

These have a great, classic style that works equally well with pants or skirts. On the downside I echo another reviewer's comments about the tightness over the toes which can get extremely uncomfortable on longer walks. They will eventually stretch, but not before they inflict some serious pain. The construction is also very poor. After only a couple of months of occasional wear, the glue around the bottom sole and the surrounding plastic is separating. Just because they are a name brand doesn't mean they're any better quality than the no name sneakers you can find anywhere. Buy them for the cute look or color, but don't expect too much in terms of fit and longevity.

Not for wide feet. Love the classic Keds Champion style, and especially the new colors. Unfortunately, the Champion is very narrow and long. I usually wear a 6.5 or 7 wide, or a 7/7.5 regular, but the size 6.5 Champion is as long as a size 7.5 and much narrower. Hoping Keds will bring back the wider 'Tangy' style again.

The left shoe dug in at the base of my toes and cut me up pretty badly. The right shoe wasn\'t the most comfortable, but it didn\'t have the same slicing problem near the base of the toes. Not very comfortable overall and very inconsistent construction. These could be okay to wear once in a while if you get two that are decently made, but that was not my experience.

Shoes were too big. Exchanging them for a half size lower. They came with white and yellow laces. Using the white laces.

Bought these for my teenage daughter. She loves them. They go with everything from skirts to jeans. They look expensive and she gets so many "those are so cute" comments from her teen friends and adults as well. She also says they are very comfortable. Buy them! You won't be disappointed.

Keds are lovely summer shoes. I had one pair a few years ago that I remember being more true to size, though this particular pair feels very long and narrow. I usually wear a 7, but these are 6.5, and they still pop off my heel at certain angles. I wouldn't have gotten a 6 because they would have been far too narrow for my feet. I wore them without socks walking around New York literally all day yesterday and they were perfectly comfortable. The popping off the back of my heel sometimes when I walk up stairs doesn't bother me anymore, because they never feel like they are actually going to fall off.

These shoes are great. They're more comfortable than the Keds of my childhood. I think they give a little more room in the toes and have better arch support. I've been wearing these regularly since I got them and have no complaints. Also, they came with two pairs of laces, the yellow ones pictured, and a pair of white ones. A great shoe at a great price.

These gray Keds Champions look very cool and I've already had several people stop me in the street to ask where I got them ("ZAPPOS!!!!!"). In terms of size, I recommend buying a half size smaller than your usual size--they run a bit large. In terms of support, they feel exactly the way basic Keds have always felt--not much arch support, but enough room to add the kind of insole you like.

I haven't worn Ked shoes since I was 11 (quite some time ago). They are as comfortable as I remember and still as easy to slip on your feet without untying. The shoes fit great (I am a big 10) and I really like the yellow laces. I've tried other similar shoes (Vans, All-Stars) and Ked shoes just seem to look better on my feet. I have really narrow feet and they are kinda big so these Ked shoes work great for me.
