PF Flyers vs Pro Keds vs Converse (Jack Purcell). Laces: Pro Keds and PF Flyers use cotton laces. Converse uses nylon laces, which don't like to remain tied. So I replaced them. How can you have a "vintage" shoe and use nylon laces?! Width: I have wide Samoan feet so I would rank the PF Flyers as being the widest at the toes, then the Pro Keds, and lastly the Converse. Softness of footbed: All three are about the same. The differences are really minor. Looks: Personally I like the way the Jack Purcells look best - just a pair of blue and white sneakers. But the painfully narrow toe box on the Converse makes the PF Flyers my overall winner, with the Pro Keds a close second.

A pretty good all-around shoe. Wore it for close to a year, but at around 8 months, the inside sides of the uppers began to tear open where they meet the flex point of the soles. Most canvas shoes I've owned haven't done this.

Why wear Converse and look just like everyone else when you can be truly retro hip with PFs?

Caveat: I'm reviewing from a woman's perspective, though I believe these are unisex shoes. These sneaks are cute and comfy. They do resemble all stars, but they've got a higher profile (lift), which I like. They fit true to size, nonetheless, the slightly rub and move around on my Achilles heel--but I solved that with gel inserts made for that spot. Finally, I think these are cute with bootcut jeans, shorts, and capris.

I like the look of white Converse All-Stars oxfords, but they always pinched my toes unless I sized up. These have the same look as the low-top Chucks, but with a wider toe-box and a more cushioned sole. They're light and breathable which makes them perfect for summer and only look cooler once worn out. OVERALL: More comfortable/wider than Converse or Vans.

I bought these in a fit of nostalgia, and was pleased to find they are as lightweight and comfortable as I remembered. They are a clear step up from Converse Chuck Taylors, roomier and more durable with better support. They seem a little over-priced, but I used to get them for ten bucks, so what do I know? I will definitely buy another pair of PF Flyers. Maybe today. Recommended.

I bought a pair of these in natural about two years ago. I have been a life long Cons person and still wear them, but this pair of PF Flyers has been amazing. I bought some similar hi-tops in black that are not as comfortable, but I have taken this pair all over the place, worn them non stop and done everything from hike, workout, walk through cities, travel and they are seriously comfortable and even look better as they get trashed from use. I could not rate a shoe like this any better.

Much more comfortable than a Converse or Vans, especially if you have a slight arch and like the support on that part of your feet. Would buy another pair of PF Flyers! So long Converse and Vans.

Classic lines, clean execution and crisp detail. These PF Flyers are a great look with jeans and chill slacks. Highly recommend. The mix of matte and shiny are well thought out and give the shoe a classy touch.

I got the white ones and I like them a lot. The arch support is welcome and they look nice. Only notes are that they are very much off-white. And there is a strange strap that laces on at the top that I didn't notice when looking at the photos, but I don't mind it at all.

Very comfortable shoe. I would recommend getting a 1/2 size larger. I wear the shoe with jeans or shorts and do not advise training or playing sports. I love the color of the shoe and it looks so great with jeans.

Great shoes. Much more support that the Converse. Looks good with jeans and some can get away with wearing shorts.

Brands I'd also recommend: If you look old school the jack purcells are excellent too.

I have been wearing PF Flyers for years, but this is the first pair of Bob Cousy's I've had. They remind me of Converse All-Stars only a wider fit and a bit more support (which I really like). I think they may run a bit big, and my only complaint with PF Flyers is the different styles all seem to run a bit off from each other. I can wear anywhere from a 10 to 11. Overall, I am really happy with this shoe and I intend to make it my go to pair.

These shoes fit true to size. There is no slipping in the back which is a big plus! I expected a little rubbing on a new pair of retro sneakers like these, but they were comfortable from the get go!

Much better fit than Converse - I'm a convert. If you love Converse All Stars but need a bit more cushion, toe room and width, these are terrific. Emphasis on "a bit": do not expect to go running or walk all day in these shoes. Fashion more than comfort. I wear 9 wide and ordered a woman's 9: fits perfectly.

Search has ended for a cool casual shoe in gray - I wanted an all gray casual shoe and searched Zappos site by color and genre and these showed up. It's not easy to find an all gray shoe. Converse Gray Chucks have the white soles I didn't want. It was between these or the Ecko Unlimited Whellers that also came up, but they were more black with gray. Ordered 9.5 US and fit perfectly with my own thin insole for additional arch as these shoes are fairly flat. Shoes arrived promptly and packed well with original box as straight as from factory. Zappos saved me a lot of time trying to find what I wanted.

A very awesome pair of shoes - I bought these for my son only a few days before Christmas and they were here the next day. Very convenient. He loves them, I bought him the blue version of this shoe and he said these were exactly what he wanted, so overall it was a very good purchase. He says the shoes are very comfortable and his only wishes are that they had more of the larger sizes in stock because he wants some of the other colors available.

Brands I'd also recommend: simple, camper, and converse shoes

Good basic, stylish shoe - Overall good shoe. Keep in mind that these are old school, Chuck Taylor type shoes with little cushion and not much support. They are however great shoes for kicking around town in after work or on a weekend. I only have two main gripes, one being the price which seems high for what these are...but then again I paid it, so it must not be too bad right? The other is that the point where the rubber meets the canvas at the crease point when you step forward, well that started to separate a bit right away. I will say that it never got any worse and it doesn't seem to effect the shoe, just bugged me a bit...again for the price =)

How Cool Are Bright Green Basketball Shoes? I saw these shoes featured in the styles section of my local newspaper and knew I had to have them. What a combination: canvas, classic low-cut and bright Celtics green... what else would Bob Cousy have worn? They wear just like you would expect a canvas no-support 'sneaker' to wear (let's face it none of us has EVER bought a canvas sneaker for the support. But they look super cool! The first day I wore them I got two compliments in about twenty minutes, one of which came from the shoe salesman at a high-end department store. How cool is that! Definitely a style purchase well worth the price.

Don't play hoop in these! These are for show only and show you how far basketball sneakers have come. They are cool and retro but don't do anything more than get the mail in them or risk breaking your ankle.

Great Shoes! I looked far and wide for bright green shoes, and found exactly what I was looking for in the PF Flyers. At first they were a little tight, but the canvas stretched to fit me very well.
