As a six year old in 1985 I had a pair of these same exact shoes and they have not changed to this day. I bought a pair and love them! In my opinion they are more comfortable than any popular air shoes, but they have the same look as they did in '85. Also, Zappos worked well for me...received my shoes quick.

I love the nostalgia of these shoes; however, both shoes began to fall apart at the seams (literally) after about 2 weeks of wear. If you don't care about them looking abused after less than a month's wear, by all means. If you would like to wear them as everyday shoes, I could not recommend them as the proud owner of a pair.

My husband got these in grey and white, and he loves them! The lighting causes the shoe to look darker though.

I can't answer the questions about fit because I bought this as a gift. First I ordered the wrong size; returned. Then I ordered the wrong color; also returned. And lo, the correct size and color was sent to me, fast (next day) and in time for the birthday. Terrific customer service.

I remember wearing these as a kid! Guess what, they are even cooler now! When I was a kid, I could only fit some change into the snazzy pocket on the side of my Roo. Now, I can fit my wallet into the pocket on my size 14 Roos!

I had these sneakers in the late '80s, and was very happy with them. I was exited to have the chance to purchase them again. They are real comfortable, not to mention all the compliments I have been getting. I purchased lock laces so I can slip them on and off...just a great sneaker.

Love these shoes! They are just as much fun as they were when I was a little kid and comfortable as well. I can wear them all day long and my feet feel good. Zappos was awesome as well as the order was shipped and arrived quickly.

I couldn't find any of the womens styles that I liked, so I went to the mens department to look, and I found these! I wear a mens 7 and absolutely love them! I get compliments on them all the time, they are very unique. They not only look great and last forever, but they make my feet feel great! Very comfortable and true to size! My brother asked for some for Christmas! Good call Roos!

These are my favorite shoes! I just wish Zappos carried more colors in all the sizes. I have bought four pairs of these. Mostly get get different colors. They last a long time especially if you use a magic eraser on the "white walls" and wash the shoe laces every once and a while.

It has been over 25 years since I last had a pair of Roos, and when I put these on they felt just as good as I remember. Great fit, very comfortable and an awesome price. I will definitely buy another pair.

Not only is my son thrilled with his KangaROOS, but I was thrilled with Zappos' customer service. I was not home to receive the package when it came, and it was returned to Zappos. With only a couple of days to my son's birthday, I was frantic. When I called customer service, the rep said let us just send you a replacement pair overnight, free of charge, so you don't have to wait for the return to arrive here. My son got his shoes on his birthday, and I was a very happy camper. Thank you Zappos!

It's all about old school. When I was a kid growing up in the 80's ROOS were the coolest thing. I am older now and I think they are still cool looking sneakers after all these years. I like the side pocket.

These shoes are great! Love the style and comfort. The only flaw is that I noticed my pair to have more than acceptable threads that stuck out from both the top and sides of the shoes which I had to cut will scissors. Other than that, love the shoes.

I have used this brand of shoes for running for years. In part because they accommodate my foot width. The look is retro, and they are comfortable for walking or running. I especially like that they offer less cushioning than is typical in a running shoe. While nowhere near a barefoot running type shoe, they are in a good middle slot between the standard strong support and cushioning shoe, and the barefoot running shoe.

Great shoes, but I was expecting them to arrive sooner than the 5 or 6 days it took for them to get here.

This shoe makes people nostalgia. Seems like everyone had a pair back in the 80's so it's great thinking back about the good old days. The Grey and Red combo is pretty snappy as well! Overall sizing feels a little bit snug. The US 9 (Euro 42) fits pretty true to a Puma 42 (snug) and is about a half size tighter than a Doc Marten UK 8 (Euro 41-42). Feels about a full size tighter than a Vans US 9.

I bought these shoes as a birthday gift for my husband. He absolutely loves them! They are just like the ROOS he had as a kid! And yes, they do have the zipper pouch on the side for quarter storage.

Zappos is a wonderful site to order from, I had to exchange shoes for my husband, and there was no hassle, we got the new shoes the next day and hadn't even sent the other ones back yet. They are awesome, we will definitely continue ordering shoes from Zappos.
