I guess I didn't really read the description carefully. I thought this was leather uppers. It's some kind of mesh material. The sneakers do look exactly like the picture. And they are nice. But I need leather because they last longer for me so I'm sending these back.

Zappos' service was great. However, the product was not. Red and white paint from the sides of the soles rubbed off onto a very expensive Marley floor at a local dance studio. I had to apologize to the studio owners and might be on the hook to pay for damages. The shoe's construction was comfortable. It looks great too. I wish the paint did not rub off.

I love these shoes! They are so "clean" looking. They do not have that athletic look about them. They are designed for someone who knows labels but doesn't want "over the top" tennis shoe attention. The inside cushioning is very nice even the arch support. They are understated (3-stripes of Adidas not part of the look) however the Adidas emblem on the heel is perfect!

These are awesome! I work on my feet all day and these are the best. I have tried everything. Dansko clogs, Birkenstocks, running shoes, Keens but I always come back to these.

Brands I'd also recommend: This is the only brand to get. Stan Smith rocks too.

I've been looking for a casual sneaker with an old school touch, and that's exactly what the Rod Laver's are. I ordered the grey with red trim, and couldn't be happier. They're sharp and comfortable. I also like the fact they come with a grey pair of laces (they come laced up with a red pair). They were a great price, and I usually wear between an 11.5 and 12 depending on the brand. The size 12 fit me great. What I like is the Adidas trademark is part of the fabric and not stitched. Thank you Zappos, Rod Laver and Adidas!

On my fourth pair of these (get a new pair yearly). Love how comfortable and versatile they are. Love the way they wear over time too--the way jeans get character over time.

Great casual shoe, very comfortable, but I had to buy a full size larger (bought size 14, normally a 13). I have flat feet, and the insole doesn't have too high an arch and is comfortable for a 10-12 hour day.

I got this in a smaller size than I normally wear but it fits well. It's a nice looking retro shoe. I will buy another pair when this one wears down.

I love these shoes! I've owned many in the past 15 years. I actually had to order a pair of mens because women's Rod Lavers are not available right now. I wear a 7 women's and ordered a 5.5 in men's and they fit perfect. I will continue to wear these shoes because they are sleek and cute! Call me "old-school."

Zappos is amazing. Anything I order is shipped at lightning speed. The selection is fantastic, so much better than driving around to stores only to find the same minimal selections at the stores. This pair of Adidas I got are so cool, everyone is constantly saying how much they like them, with me being the biggest fan, they're really comfortable too. Oh, and by the way, when I have needed to return anything I bought, the ease and convenience of the process is unparalleled. Thanks Zappos and Adidas!

I have awkward feet so it's hard for me to find tennis shoes that fit right, and I was pretty skeptical of buying any shoes online. I really like these shoes- the only thing that has bothered me about these ones is that the tongue is a bit stiff at first and can rub against your toes. After wearing them in a bit though and positioning the tongue correctly, they work great and are very comfortable.

These are very nice shoes. I like the style and they are excellent footbag shoes. The only real downfall is how slippery they are on all surfaces

I really like my new Adidas Rod Laver. Was looking for black on black but the green and black looks cool. D width seems just slightly narrow but still very comfortable.

Love these shoes! Lightweight, comfortable and stylish. I get many compliments and have bought them for others. I am going to buy them in the green/black next. I have flat feet and these shoes are perfect for me. Most shoes have to much arch support and feels like there is a rock in my shoe. These are more cushy than Converse.

How can you beat the Rod Laver? It's essentially the same as the older blue and green soled models, but a little slimmer on the big toe side.
