I wanted a pair of shoes that I could wear with most clothes and not look like I just came from the gym. Very comfortable and lightweight.

Too narrow for a "wide" width and doesn't feel supportive enough for activity (zumba/dance).

I never order wide shoes but I loved these so I sent first pair back and got wide. I have bunions and for some reason this shoe is very narrow at the bunion spot. Love these for chasing my kids without having to wear my running shoes.

Great styling, low profile sneaker. Plan on using it for day-to-day running errands, etc., not so much exercising. I usually wear a 7.5 in a regular shoe, but have always gone up 1/2 size in NB for the extra toe room.

These fit really well and are comfortable. They don't have a lot of support for an athletic shoe but the style is great in my opinion. A little too warm for summer, but I tend to have stinky feet!

I wear a size 10 in shoes - and thought to order up to a size 10 1/2. These were extremely small - I couldn't even get them on my foot. Returning and will not try again. I really like the look of these shoes.

Just received my new shoes and I love them! They are comfortable, true to size and the stylish throw back look I was looking for! I am a size 8 on right foot and 9 on left foot, I ordered these in a 9 and they fit great. And this was my first Zappos order, great experience, I'll be making many more now.

Really like these sneakers! They're comfortable and supportive. Great for walking and casual. Would not use them for work outs or running though. Ordered them in black as well but did not like the look in black so sent them back.

These shoes are very stylish and comfortable, however they are not running shoes. The interior of the shoe is flat. These are definitely a low-end line for NB, but the price reflects that. Buy these shoes for stylish casual use, not running. As for size, I am usually between a 6.5 and 7. The 6.5 would have worked, but the 7 was more comfortable for me. If you are between sizes then size up but in general, these run true to size.

These shoes are great. They are comfortable, and I'm certain I will wear them for years. I can't say they are particularly cool...when I wear them with thin legged jeans they look skinny and long sticking out. My feet are 8.5. I'm thinking about painting the N gold or something -- just to break up the blackness.

I bought these shoes for Nursing Clinical Rotations where I have to be on my feet for 12 plus hours. They were not comfortable and had no arch support whatsoever. They looked pretty, but they were not a good match for what I needed them for!

I got these as a city commuter sneaker since I can't do the subway in dress shoes. They are a smidge narrow on my wide feet but still super comfortable. I've been wearing them at every opportunity and are taking over the place of my Chucks as my standard weekend & errand shoes.

Very, very cute! Comfortable enough to wear all day for running around & a walk around the neighborhood. Good fit. Not the most supportive but fine for what I want them for. Really great looking shoe.

These look way cuter in pictures than they do once I got them. The arch support isn't super great and the tops of the shoes are pretty ugly. I was so looking forward to getting these and am disappointed. Keep in mind if you purchase them that you need to get super short, below the ankle socks otherwise it looks silly.

Ordered these a couple weeks ago in black for work and I love them, super comfortable. I'm a dental assistant so I'm always on and off my feet, better arch support than the Skechers I was using, and get a lot of compliments on them. I think they run about a half size smaller than I'm used to, I normally wear a 5 and had to get a 5.5 in these. Now I want the Gray ones too.

These were really cute, but had absolutely no arch support. I will be returning for something a little more supportive.

Great shoes, I wish they had more colors. Very comfy and no need to break them in! The only thing is that the material gets dirty easily and I'm not sure if it'll be easy to clean. But otherwise these babies haven't left my feet!

Really happy with these shoes. They look a lot "cooler" in person, and they fit great. I walk a lot and needed a shoe that would be comfortable for doing so.

These low profile sneakers are really comfortable and cute. The toe box gas plenty of room and the heel doesn't rub, which is often an issue for me. I highly recommend them to someone looking for a casual shoe.
