When I fist got these shoes, they fit well and I had no problems. At the end of the first full day wearing them, I noticed that the top of my right foot (near the toes) felt sore. I didn't think too much of it, and brushed it off as the shoe simply needing to be broken in. Soon after the pain got worse and I decided to investigate. The right shoe has a defect by which when it bends the section which houses the laces pushes down on the top part of foot. The left shoe didn't do this, as I noticed that the two shoes simply bend differently. So be wary, when you first try them on, stand on your tippy-toes, and if you feel something digging into the top of your shoe, return the pair and save yourself the pain.

I owned these in the 70s and actually played tennis in them. Now they seem like they have too little cushioning for that. Great style and go well and understated with a pair of jeans or shorts. I feel that the toe box is a bit tight and I do wear an "E" in a dress shoe though normal in a gym shoe since they are flexible. These shoes are a bit tight so if you need a roomy toe box, you might want to bump up a half size.

The sneakers outshine Nike's Airforce ones in sleekness and design. These sneakers should not to be worn with anything other than ankle socks or sockless when worn with shorts. Warning! Scuffs are not easily removed the suede, so be careful.

Great looking shoes; lots of compliments. A Half size smaller than specified size. They are comfortable. Although, I would not want to walk in these for more than 4 hours straight, so I won\'t be wearing them as a tourist anytime. I would buy them again.

I agree with the other reviewer who claimed there is a defect or something in the right shoe where the lacing at the front pushes down against your foot on the toe area and pretty much hurt after a full day of wearing them. This was only on the right foot. I also wore thin no show socks with them so that could be a reason they hurt. Overall these are hands down the best looking summer chill shoe for 2011. Sadly unless you drive in a car every where you go you may find that these shoes have literally no walking comfort due to flat arch support, stiff leather uppers and a rock hard insole. I would recommend sizing a half size up and getting soft gel sole inserts with arch support. I originally wanted the Adidas Rod Laver in the same white leather with green trim but those are sold out everywhere. These look better but I'm not sure if they are as comfy as Rod Lavers. In the end I returned them.

These Puma are the first I have owned that feel true to the size marked. The bottom of the tongue is made of felt and grips your sock as you put them on making them feel small as it will pull your sock very tight to your foot. You may want to order a half size larger to avoid this. Also they do not breathe very well and tend to get very hot. This coming from someone who does not normally have foot sweat issues. Overall they are comfortable and look sweet.

Nice looking shoes, lightweight, but the end of the tongue has a super sharp edge (looks like they used heat to melt the layers together). Even wearing socks, after wearing for more than 30 minutes it feels like it is cutting through the skin -- very uncomfortable.

Great shoes, just scuff very easily. If you wear jeans that touch your shoes, they will leave stain/scuff marks where they sit while you walk around.

Nice looking shoe, and I like the low rise as I have high in-steps, but the shoe doesn't seem very durable. The leather on inside of the heel is so soft that it's tearing (like my old Puma Californias did).

These shoes are great. They ran about a size larger than marked, so when you buy go a size smaller, but other than that they felt amazing. Yet another great shoe by Puma!

Nice, look great. Comfort: generally very good; however, because of the low profile they are flat where the toes are; this in turn makes them a bit tight when you walk, so as the leather bends it puts pressure on your toes. But they are new, so they will stretch in a few days. They get dirty easily, but they're also easily cleaned with a tooth brush. Will get them again.

This shoe is really low, as in your ankle is not covered at all. This shoe looks really nice, feels pretty nice and is overall a pretty good shoe. It has a really nice thin tongue which is what I like. All in all, I recommend this shoe.

These are one of my favorite and most comfortable pair of kicks. They have almost no weight. If you wear a 12 and 1/2 (12 too snug and 13 too sloppy), then this shoe was made for you. Not bad looking either.

These seem to run about a half size large. I have 10 pair of size 13 Pumas that fit perfectly, but I could have used a 12.5 in these. As usual, Zappos outstanding customer service keeps me coming back whenever I want another pair.
