I ordered a 12. The ones I got felt a little too narrow and a little bit too short. I'll be trying the 13 since they don't have a 12.5, hopefully it isn't too big. Otherwise the shoes seemed very comfortable and well made.

These shoes are made of extremely cheap leather. The shoes are not very breathable and not all that comfortable. If you don\'t mind cheap leather, then get these because they look good. However, if you want better materials for the same money, go with something from Nike or Adidas.

First time buying Puma shoes, so I was a bit nervous if I had made the right choice. I absolutely love them! They feel a bit tight, but nothing unbearable. And yes, be sure to order 1/2 size bigger than what you wear.

Superb customer service, great shipping department. I had my sneakers the next morning. My size was not in any stores. My daughter told me about Zappos. I am totally sold and will highly recommend them & use them again.

I've always been a big Puma fan and these shoes didn't let me down. Not wanting to wear dress shoes to the office - these feel just as good after a day at work as they did in the morning. Having a narrow heel has made it difficult to buy shoes that fit and these hold my foot in place. Normally I wear a 9, but with Puma I need a 9.5, so be careful what size you order.

My teenage son loves these shoes, says they are very comfortable. They do run small so make sure to order a half size bigger than you think you need.

It felt a little tight when you first put them on. Like the very first time right out of the box. But once on and you were them for a little bit they feel really good on the feet. Nice and snug 5 stars for sure on comfort but as the size gets bigger the shoe looks a little like clown shoes. I guess that's what happens when its a size 17.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance if you have big feet but still would like alittle more style ;)

I got these shoes for my boyfriend. As suggested, I bought half a size larger than his regular size and they fit him perfectly! He loves them with blue jeans. Zappos kudos on your speedy delivery!

The shoes were for my son who had to break them in at first but finds them comfortable at this time. He wears size 16 and Zappos has always been such a great help in finding shoes to fit him. They are the best when it comes to shipping. I have ordered at 10PM eastern time and received them the next day before 3PM. It's amazing! My son is always thrilled to receive them so quickly.

I was so glad to see that Zappos sold this traditional looking shoe by Puma. In Southern California it is hard to find the more classic shoes. These are my son's favorite shoes and were the first Puma's he ever had. I haven't been able to find them anywhere so he had to wear a style he did not like as much. A friend of mine told me about Zappos so I decided to see if they might have want he wanted. When I found them, I wanted to buy two pairs so he would have a back up when he needed it, but his size only had one available. When his size is available again, I will definitely order another pair. Thanks Zappos for a painless shoe buying experience!

I am on my third pair of these shoes. They are so comfortable and look good with anything. I like them as they are neither bulky, or skinny. I am on my feet a lot and these are great.

I owned a pair of what seems to be the previous model. The reason I was drawn to them is, well, they looked great. After trying them on at a Puma store, they felt great too. Vanity wins again! Like most shoes, they ended up getting a bit worn out, so I came to Zappos to simply replace the ones I had. This new model seems to fit a little more snug (maybe it's just because my old pair were falling apart), but the black on black is just awesome. Zappos had the shoes at my door in less than 24 hours (VIP status woo!), and I seriously couldn't be happier. I kind of want to buy another pair and keep them in my closet, you know, just in case.

The quality of the product was excellent. The shipping was unbelievable, I ordered the shoes after 3 PM and the shoes arrived the next morning! Now that is fast, what makes it even better I did not have to pay any shipping.

PUMA Basket II - Decent enough looking shoe, skaterish kind of look, shoe for the late adolescent/early twenty's, casual dress down days, sturdy, thick sole meaning long wear and adding an inch or so to your height too. Durable shoe, only complaint is puma's size is not a universal size, but goes along with the risk of online shopping! Would recommend to people who are nostalgic about their youth.

Brands I'd also recommend: if you like this look, check Stan Smith's (Adidas), and the ORIGINAL basket by Puma, Air Force 1's by Nike

Puma Brand meets the everyday foot - Puma are the best sneakers on the market. They are not too flashy and wear very well. They do run a little small so order one size up.

One of the best shoes I ever had! These are very good shoes, they are comfortable the quality of the materials are excellent. It also has two sets of strings, one black and the white ones are on the shoes. I had Nike sneakers before, the first step I took I saw a crease on the nose of the shoes, that doesn’t happen with these and never did… been wearing them for 2 weeks and not one crease whatsoever. They still look new. Just wish they had more variety of color.

Simple, old-school, reasonably priced = great shoe - These shoes were exactly what I was looking for. Have bought Converse One Stars in the past and wanted something w/ a similar style/feel and these fit the bill. And the cost was good too. I'd read the shoe runs on the small side and it's true- I'm usually about an 8.5, so I got a 9, and it's about a perfect fit.

Good Shoe - The style is hard to beat but it may run a little small, but if you wear it around enough you can work them in.

Very narrow. I wear a size 10, but had to order an 11 to get it to fit my width, which adds a little bit to the length of the shoe.

I wear size 17 and didn't like the feel of the shoe; not much support so your feet tend to slide. The shoe was a little snug as well.

You ruined a true classic by taking away much of the leather. Now they are too tight and cannot be broken in with all the plastic components. Wish I had bought ten pairs before Puma made the "modernization". I'll be sticking to the original Adidas from here on in. Frankly, Puma destroyed an original. Don't buy, they suck. I'm truly hurt because it reminds me of my youth in the early '70s.
