These seem to run 1/2 to 1 size small. I sent back a size 9 and got 9 1/2. I am very pleased. They are stylish, sturdy, well made and present a very nice appearance. They seem to be a very high-quality shoe. I recommend these dark, semi-glossy leather Nikes, as compared to lighter colors (like gray) in suede. I had some beautiful gray, suede-finish Nikes but dripped some oily or greasy food on the toe of one shoe and never could get the stain out. I tried everything I could. As casual shoes for slightly dressy occasions (e.g., an outdoor party) those gray Nikes were ruined. Now I use those shoes to mow the lawn.

Brands I'd also recommend: Adidas or Puma

Black/Black/Black - Purchased these as beater shoes for rainy days when boots aren't appropriate; and for that they perform admirably. Very clean looking shoe in the all black color scheme. True to size. The heel of the shoe bites in a bit if you don't wear socks.

Bought these for working in the food service industry. Excellent shoe for the money and very comfortable. Delivery took a bit longer than normal but it was the Christmas season.

A great color with jeans or khakis and a serious clash with white socks. The leather is stiff enough to require a bit of break-in. The heel is very roomy, even with heavy ThorLo socks. This style could also benefit from a removable insole.

Really cool shoes, great looks. But I am not sure about the comfort level, may be my expectations were very high from Nike. It's not that soft, presumably because of the leather they used. But it's definitely worth it comparing the price and material. It gets better when you wear it for a week. I think I need to put an insole inside. When you compare this with Adidas Samba, I must say Adidas Samba is much more comfortable and soft feeling than this. As for the looks, I am sure it differs from person to person.

Love Zappos, received shipment early. Have worn this sneaker about 10 times now. Wasn't comfortable at first, but I always buy gel inserts for any new sneaker I purchase & that did the trick. Looks great too.

Love the shoe! It got style, it is comfortable. Has a good weight and durable. The only con that this shoe has is that it has almost no grip at all. Definitely not recommended to be used in a rainy city/state. It almost never rains here, so not a big con for me. Overall, I highly recommend this pair of shoes.

Just what it looks at pictures. Very urban, nice and comfortable shoes. The only thing to raise is that the back part of the shoe is a little higher than expected making some pain to uncles

I bought these Nike's after returning a pair of Puma's. They look really cool but my husband was hoping they would break in after about 40 hours of wear. The fit is tight and the width is very narrow with no give. Maybe a half size larger would have been better. I was really hoping he would like these.

I love the shoes, I got a bunch of really good compliments on the shoes. People loved the style. The only problem was comfort. The top part is very hard, and not very flexible, and the bottom part was very thin.

These shoes are very nice, I take them with me virtually everywhere. They came very fast, I literally ordered them at around 11 pm and received them the next day at around 10 am- no joke! Free overnight, that's just amazing. If there is one thing I don't like, it's that they are creasing a little in the front after about a month of wearing. I guess that's normal though. Great price, well worth it!

These look nice, sizing is correct but a little tight. bought for my husband and he likes them a lot but says they will feel more comfortable after they are worked in. All leather and looks sharp.

OK, I have like 8 pair of Sweet Classics. I love the shoe and love the styling. Here is my only problem with the last two pair I have gotten. I feel that Nike has cost reduced these shoes and they have gotten extremely cheap. The toe cap creases really bad and where the rubber meets the leather has a bunch of defects. Both problems look bad and they seem wear out way faster. I sent back the last two pair and thought it was just the shoe but the ones they replaced them with look exactly the same, so I just live with them. Again I have been buying sweet classics since they first came out so I have noticed a dramatic difference in the last 6 months in quality. But if you are new to the style it may not be a big deal. Again I love the shoe and styling, its just a shame.

Brands I'd also recommend: Puma, new balance, converse

I just got these shoes and I'm sorry to say they are going back tomorrow. The sole of the shoe is thick and not very flexible. The back heel part is tall and it rubs against my foot. There is also no fabric padding inside, there is just the leather sides of the shoe so I found this shoe to be wider than my other Nike shoes. The leather is soft and pliable, but it has this bubble texture. I prefer smooth leather like the kind used in a belt. Design is cool, but all the negative aspects are why I am sending them back. I'm still a big Nike fan.

Brands I'd also recommend: Fossil, Levi's, Steve Madden

These are the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever worn. The toe applied pressure to the top of my foot making my foot sore after wearing them for 2 hours. Also, the back rubbed the skin off of my heel making the experience even less enjoyable. They are stiff and the sole was nearly unbearable. I think I'll stick to the higher priced Nike's or the always comfortable/affordable New Balance. There was one upside to the shoes: they were extremely good looking! Not good looking enough for me to endure the constant discomfort, though!

Fit was okay; similar to the canvas Sweet Classic. Their leather had the look and feel of cheap pleather, though, and they made an annoying squeaky noise with each step. Don't expect to do any sneaking in these.

These are the least comfortable shoes I have ever had the misfortune of putting on my feet. If you walk more than about 20 steps per day, I would not recommend these shoes. Pros - They seem well designed and constructed. They are somewhat stylish. Cons - terrible arch support. Completely flat. Terrible flexibility. The leather that bends when you take a step pushes down into your feet, which is extremely uncomfortable. The heel fabric digs into your heels because the shoes do not bend properly. They are too thin, even for normal sized feet, and the shape of the inside is something less than ergonomic. When you put them on, it instantly feels as if you've accidentally put them on the wrong feet.

I'm sending these back! I wore them for one day and they totally destroyed my Achilles on both feet. Bleeding through my socks and then through band-aids. I could barely walk! Also, the front top material looked like it was creasing and would get worse as I owned the shoes.

I bought those shoes for a trip to Europe. Thought they would be comfortable and the first 3 days they were. Then they started to excoriate my arch pretty bad (bleeding). I ended up throwing them into the trash because there is no way I could walk any further with them and unlike leather this cheap plastic material would never get any softer. These were one of the most horrible shoes I ever owned.

The insert was way too big. It had to be trimmed a lot. It might have just been my pair, but be cautious.

This shoe feels great, and looks great...for about two days. Unfortunately, it's made from some kind of inferior leather and the toes become insanely wrinkled almost immediately. I'm kind of a sneaker freak, and I always use wearable shoe trees, but even those can't stop the wrinkling. I thought it was a defect in the first pair I tried, so I sent them back and the second pair was just as bad. After wearing them twice, they aren't good for anything but bumming around the house or doing yard work. I also have a pair of the white and silver ones, with the perforated sides (http://www.zappos.com/nike-sweet-classic-leather-white-metallic-silver-black) and those still look fresh after a year of wear. So there's just something wrong with this particular style. Which is a shame, because they're sweet when they come out of the box.

Terrible, worst shoe I ever bought. The heel is too high and rubs my Achilles heel. Very stiff. No wonder they were marked down.

Anyone looking for old style sneakers with minimal bells and whistles, but with some flair will enjoy this. My only complaint is that they run a little narrow.
