These are simple skate shoes, so it isn't like walking on air, but I find them comfortable. They fit great without being bulky, which is great if you don't have wide feet. I love the way these look. And as always, since they are vegan, they give me superpowers.

Cheap. I put my finger in the rear loop to help put the shoe on, and ripped the loop right off. The shoe's are so fragile and cheap. I am very displeased with the quality of this product. Will not buy again, unless there are changes to build quality.

I have purchased several pairs of shoes from Zappos. (I buy them for my son for his birthday and Christmas). My son absolutely loves the shoes, they fit him better than any shoe he has ever put on his feet and they wear very well. I could not be more happy with the quality of service of Zappos. You are, by far, the best online company I have ever dealt with. Never have had a problem with ordering, delivery time or having to return something. You're a great company; keep up the high quality work!

The Eliots are more comfortable than I expected form some reviews here; they do take a bit to break in, but otherwise are great. I really dig the rubber toe cup as well. The size has been said to be one larger than normal, but they're the same size as the Vans I switched from so no problems here. It's also nice that they look cool, considering most shoes let alone skate shoes look like they were designed by a blind man. One issue I've had though is water. The canvas isn't really expected to hold against water obviously, but I'd advise getting some good waterproofing spray to treat them with or your feet will get soaked if the water rises slightly above the rubber. Otherwise, they seem to be doing an awesome job.

I would buy these again and again; the best shoes on the market. They are a tad big, but that isn't really a problem.

These kicks are awesome. I had Macbeth Wallister\'s and they didn\'t breathe at all. These breathe perfectly fine, and are comfortable. I wore them on a 10 day trip to Europe through rain and mud and they were comfy and kept me dry. Good vegan quality. Order a half-size smaller than you would get for other brands.

Very nice shoes. They are true to size, durable in weather (lasted nicely through an entire winter in Boston), and personally I think they look fly for any occasion. Would highly recommend this all vegan product! (They also go great with instep gels of some sort, makes them even more comfortable.)

Shoes look cool and fit good. Fast shipping as always. But I had to end up ordering one size smaller with this brand of shoe than I normally wear. Awesome shoes for the money.

These are the best shoes I've had. My current pair I ordered over a year and a half ago and the pair before that lasted just as long; I wore them everyday also. I've never had any pair last as long as these shoes do. Never buying any other brand.

I've got the older style version of these and wanted to talk about the whole size thing. I love Macbeths and I wanted a pair of Eliots so much I bought a pair off eBay, wrong size and all. Mine are a size UK 8 and I generally wear a UK 6. Sometimes I'll wear Converse hi-tops in a UK 7 and they're fine. I was a little worried about these as they're pretty low, but mine are fine! Yes, THEY FIT FINE. Sure, they're too big, but they don't fall off whilst walking, running, and generally leaping around, ace shoes, gotta get some, you won't regret it! And they're vegan! I don't buy or wear anything non-vegan so that's a plus point for me and the cows!

This was my first Macbeth shoe, closest thing I\'ve had before was the Adidas Gazelle. I found these to be built much better, similarly comfortable. I have a feeling they\'ll last longer.\r\n\r\nThe size was a bit too big, but I like my shoes loose so it worked out alright.\r\n\r\nWould definitely buy again.

Macbeth are the best. I opt for canvas for comfort and Macbeth really gives me many options of styles to choose from. Forget Converse, get Macbeth. I love how I can search for cruelty free footware on your site. It is sometimes difficult finding a large array of vegan shoes in one place. Zappos makes being a vegan a little easier.

I have never had a pair of Macbeth (or Converse/equivalent) before, only skate shoes (Vans, iPath, NSS) and New Balance tennis shoes. I got the Peacoat/Cement version, and they are perfect. I’ve been wearing these shoes for quite a while now, and they are exactly what I expected. They didn’t take long to wear in. If you’re a normal guy who isn’t too fussy, you’ll be fine. They are by no means uncomfortable, and that’s coming from a guy who usually wears super-padded skate shoes. The pictures of the shoes here on Zappos were spot on; what you see is what you get. I will definitely be coming back to Zappos and Macbeth for shoes in the future, although my next pair of shoes will most likely be a new pair of skate shoes, since the duct tape on my current pair isn’t going to last much longer.

I usually wear Converse, but my mom bought these because of the style, and they are so amazing, I had to steal them from her! I usually go through a pair of Converse about every six months or so, and they will be destroyed beyond all recognition. That being said, my first (and so far only) pair of Macbeth's has now lasted me over two years! While they aren't the best shoes for a full day of walking, I wear them to school, and they are perfectly comfortable for the day. Definitely way better than Converse!

Delicious - I got the same size as I wear in vans and converse and they're perfect. I haven't had any problem with the back being too low or slipping like other people have said they had. They have more support than converse do and look WAY better. Tom Delonge knows what he's talking about. If you're thinking about it, definitely get them.

Great shoes - These shoes are very very comfortable; I can't usually wear "flat" sneakers, but these work well. I love the color. I only wish there were more men's size 6 for me to order.

Macbeth's shoe - My son loved the look of the shoe and when he got them, he liked them even more. It offers more support that another “famous” brand name flat canvas sneaker.

Unreal fast shipping, nice sneaks and look great - I got these less than 24 hours after I ordered them, and I ordered them on New Years Day! I put them on and have been walking around the house for a while. They feel great, they seem more sturdy than Chuck Taylors and look 5% cooler. I really like them and as for the arch support comments, they seem to have some albeit small. All in all they seem very comfy.

Best shoes I've ever owned. I've had this shoe for about 2 shoes now and I love them to death. Contrary to the other reviews, mine barely started falling apart about 2 years after purchasing them. I have 3 other shoes that are newer than these yet I always wear these over everything else. It's the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. I've worn them all day multiple times yet they are still so comfortable. If these shoes completely fall apart, I would probably buy another pair.

Really cool shoe - not very durable. I love this shoe. This is my second pair and I will continue to buy them. They are really comfortable, and I get compliments on them all the time, but they only last about 4 months. Very little arch support.

Comfy and simple never sounded so good! Well I got my pair of shoes and just taking them out of the box was pretty exciting. Clean shoe all-round. The support on the inside of the shoe is so comfortable and lets you know that no animals were hurt in the making of this product. I think it's a perfect skate shoe also although I haven't skated em just yet. They have the simple look of a Chuck but a bit more upgraded on the comfort department. Awesome shoe to just go out in the town on. Won’t be disappointed but just remember order about a half size smaller than what you would normally wear. Kudos!

Cool Animal Friendly Shoe - My son loves this shoe, it is easy to wear and comfortable for him to run around in or skateboard or what ever his day brings him. It doesn't have a lot of flashy designs so it goes with a lot of his outfits and we love that they didn't use animal products in the making of it. Very cool.

New line Macbeth Eliot’s - What can I say? I have bought the first pair of the Eliot’s (the black/cement color, with the big "M" on the side of the shoe on both sides) and they were really nice and padded, and comfy at first, but after a period of a few months or so, when they start to wear out, they feel uncomfortable on your heels, at least they did for me, cuz they were so thin on the sides, and the tongue is thin as well. But now with the new line of Eliot’s coming out, I love them way better. The design, look, feel, and comfort. These shoes are hot. I noticed the sole is more padded toward the back of the heels, unlike the first generation Eliot’s, and here is what is really great; the tongue and sides are more thicker than the first generation Eliot’s. The tongue is so much softer, and fluffy. Very nice indeed. I love the shoes, if you liked Macbeths before, then you definitely will love these. And who better to order from than Zappos? Check this! I ordered my shoes at around 7:30pm Tuesday evening; and I got my shoes at around 12:30pm THE NEXT DAY, Wednesday!! Excellent excellent service!!! Zappos is definitely a keeper in my book

Brands I'd also recommend: Converse, and ...more Macbeth's of course =)

Macbeth Eliot - I have the cement color way and they are a way sick shoe! They're just like Converse. The size is about right, maybe a half size smaller than what you're wearing. But it's good! I think that there is a pretty good heel support! Just don't go for thick socks with them because then you might have some heel problems. Good for walks I believe. Overall a good shoe. However it does wear and tear in a few months but good. Very good!
