I've been wearing the cloth version of these shoes for years now, normally just waiting for some odd color to show up on sale somewhere, but I finally got sick of the cloth wearing out so quickly and decided to pony up for the leather version. I've been wearing them for about a week now, so I can't comment about longevity, but what I can say is that they feel like better versions of the cloth ones. The leather isn't stiff or heavy feeling, nor does it feel like that cheapo thin leather. It just feels like quality flexible material. As for comfort, support, and sizing the uppers are more comfortable than the cloth and everything else is pretty much exactly the same as normal canvas ones. No arch support, and flat bottoms. I just bought the same size I used to buy in canvas and it fit the same. Despite the fact that I usually hold out for cheap versions I just bought a second pair of these to throw in my closet so that I'll be guaranteed of having a replacement when the current ones eventually wear out. So yeah, I'd recommend them.

I bought a pair of Converse low top - white monochrome leather sneakers about 2 months ago. When I received them, they were fine. After wearing the sneakers 2 times (very lightly), I noticed that the side of the sneakers (between the rubber and leather) had started to come off. Now, it has been about 2 months since I had purchased these and had worn them about 10 times, I can no longer wear them because people might think I wear shoes with holes in them which is really the case. I have worn Converse for about 20 years, and this was the first time that I was let down. Maybe I got a bad one, but nevertheless, it was a big letdown and a big waste of money for me.

These are my first pair of Converse and I love them. The fit is perfect for my narrow feet and high arches. I was baffled to feel the bottom of the shoe on my arch without adding any inserts. The sizing is a little big - I went down half a size to the smallest size I ever buy (usually for flip-flops or any non-sock shoe). I highly recommend these, especially for nursing/healthcare folk like myself who are required to wear all-white shoes. White shoes are the ugliest things in the world - except for these! The white leather is so much better looking than the white canvas. The only non-white on them would be the silver metal grommets for the laces and very light gray writing on the heel. They have a nice solid feel and great tread. And they make scrubs look semi-cool!

Well made shoe with all the right features. My only problem is I bought the wrong size. My regular size is 11.5 and I bought a size 11. Too big.

Have loved these since I was a kid - thought I would kick it up a notch now that I am 47 and get the leather shoe - not disappointed at all! I ordered a half size smaller according to the reviews I read and they ended up fitting beautifully! Now if I could only get the black pair.

Got these shoes in black leather and white leather. I wear the black more often. they are comfortable and seem to have a little better support than the canvas Converse. Be aware if you wear dark jeanslike me the dye will stain the white leather, trim and laces.

Great shoes! Work perfectly for my husband for work. He has to wear all black, all leather shoes, and he is a Converse man, so these were a great find! The Zappos price was less than other online retailers that carried these shoes, plus I saved even more with their free shipping. They also upgraded my shipping to overnight for free, so the shoes arrived less than 24 hours after I placed my order. Overall, I was very impressed with the shoes and with Zappos!

Great buy! These "blackout" Chucks straddle the fine line between retro and trendy, icon and iconoclast, a bygone era and the future. Have already worn them with a tux and with jeans.

These are the sexiest damn shoes I've had in a while. The leather is very smooth yet durable. Very easy to clean and there is enough room to fit an orthotic. Love these shoes. Order at least a size smaller than you normally would!

It's hard to say which I love more - my new kicks or the super fast Zappos service which got them to me less than 24 hours after I ordered them! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new leather All-Stars - I usually take an 8 women's, but took a 7 in these.

These are beautiful sneakers, if you like Converse. They look clean and classic like regular low-tops. Inside, they are soft and comfy. I bought them for my daughter, who loves them.

I probably own more Chuck's than a sane person should but with that being said, I'm definitely happy that I ordered the leather All Stars! The leather is of exceptionally high quality and the color is pure black. I've received compliments from friends and strangers alike every single time I've worn them. They're simple but, because they're leather, also very stylish. Wear them with shorts, jeans, slacks--can't go wrong! They fit and feel just like regular Converse All Stars. Meaning, not the most comfortable show in the world to walk miles in--but they look awesome! The tongue does slide a bit but other than that, they're perfect.

I really like these shoes. They have a clean and classic look. The only negative is the tongue keeps sliding over to reveal the color of whatever sock you're wearing. Not a deal breaker. Definitely go with a half size smaller than your usual size.

Since I'd never worn Converse and didn't know how they'd fit it was so perfect for me to be able to try several sizes pretty much free, like at the shoe store. Before I found the size that worked. The purchases came quickly and the returns were just as easy and smooth. Awesome company and philosophy.
