I cannot even tell you how freakin amazed I am with this shoe. I had originally bought the white w/ black stripes but really wanted these, too. I am so pleased I got them. I mainly wear them at the gym because I do everything but run, so it makes me laugh to see everyone wearing those horrid running sneakers which I loathe. Note: bit of a warning for fellow lady folk when it comes to the black sneaker with the looser style capris... borders on cankles, and I don't have them, it just creates the illusion of possible canklage. Stick with the baggy pants or tight capris; for some reason they look awesome with those. Looks great with jeans, too. You cannot go wrong here.

Ridiculously high arches and the insole is glued into the shoe so I can\'t remove them and try my orthotics without damaging the shoe. If you have high arches you will love this shoe, but I have flat feet. It was the worst pain ever. Returned.

I wanted Gazelles but they didn't have them in my size so I ended up getting these instead. I like them a lot - they look great and are comfortable.

I love the style and look of the cobalt blue, but the shoe is a bit big and loose in the heels, even after I exchanged for a half size smaller. Too lazy to return it. So I'm just wearing it.

I love these more every day! I wear size a 5.5 - 6. I ordered the size 6 and they were too big. I returned them and got the 5.5 and they fit me perfectly. Wearing them the first few times I didn't find them at any point to be stiff or uncomfortable. Yesterday I met a friend for a long walk and we walked easily almost 5 miles - these shoes were awesomely comfortable the whole time. More comfortable and with more support than the 5 in the past and the New Balance cross trainers I own. There's a nice arch in them but I wouldn't call it painful. They're not only cool looking shoes, they're the most comfortable sporty casual shoe I own right now. Love them.

I love these shoes! This is my forth pair,in a row. I have toe box issues and a high arch, these shoes are so comfortable. Plenty of room and support, even with out orthotics. I keep a yard pair and a clean pair, when my clean pair becomes the yard pair I order another. The rubber toe cap and leather keeps my feet from getting wet while walking with the dogs in the wet grass.

The shoes arrived promptly. They fit well and are comfortable after wearing for a week or so. I bought the black/white stripe shoe and have been getting compliments. 4 stars for comfort because they aren't the most supportive. When these wear out, I'll buy another pair. Adidas, keeping doing you.

These shoes are classic. I was happy to buy the same pair that I had when I was 12 again at age 26. But, beware, Zappos' sizing conversion from men to women's is waaaayyyyyy off. The first pair was far too big; I had to reorder. Check online instead of the chart from Zappos. Other than that, couldn't be happier!

I am 25 years old and usually wear a short beard or stubble. I have an oval shaped face, narrow nose, and shallow cheek bones. I do not have a small face, but for some reason It has always been difficult for me to find sunglasses that look nice on my face without looking too large and taking over my better features. The first time I saw a pair of these, I fell in love - But when I tried them on initially I thought they were too large! I almost bit the bullet anyways because I LOVED the subtle blue lens and when the sun hits the frames it just looks amazing. After doing some research, I found out that I had tried on the 55mm size (which is what was recommended to me) and that there was a smaller 52mm size available. For some reason most retail stores don't carry the 52mm size. I received my first pair from Zappos, and unfortunately there was a crack in the nose bridge, so I had them exchanged. Once I received my second pair, they fit perfectly - I was so excited to have a pair of sunglasses that I loved and that I thought was worth the asking price. After adjusting the sunglasses by bending the arms down, they don't slide down my nose like most sunglasses do. However; on a hot day when my nose is sweating I have to constantly push the frame back up my nose. I'm thinking of adding rubber grips to the nose pads but I'm afraid of messing of the construction/look of them. I get tons of compliments on these sunglasses from coworkers and strangers, DAILY. I was even on my lunch break when a woman approached to compliment me on these glasses and asked to have lunch with me, then she asked to have my number so we could meet up again! I'm not saying the sunglasses will get you dates, but for this woman it was what made her approach me. Side note: I ride a motorcycle and wear an open face helmet with a small pull down visor. While riding and wearing these sunglasses, they do a decent job of keeping the wind and dust out of my eyes up to about 50mph. Any higher than that and I have to pull my visor down to cover my face. Likes: Solid construction, color, thin frame, best and most attractive pair of sunglasses I have ever owned. Dislikes: slippery nose pads, sunglasses case feels cheap, not polarized.

I've bought this shoe twice from Zappos in the last 4 years. The first time took awhile to break down, we're talking daily use for about 2 years. Solid performance. The 2nd pair was purchased 2 months ago, and it already has holes inside it. I don't know if the material is cheaper now, or if my foot awkwardly wore down the inside heel, but it happened. Still a comfortable shoe. This shoe takes about 1-2 weeks to break in, then it fits like a glove. Despite the material by the inside heel breaking down rather quickly, I think it's a decent shoe.

These shoes look great and I love that the stripes and area at the back of the heel are suede. Gives the shoe a nice upgrade. However, I found that the toe box in these shoes was incredibly tight. I have worn Adidas Superstar 2Gs (the all leather version of this shoe with a slightly more athletic sole) for years and have loved them, but these Superstars were nowhere near as comfortable. Overall, these were a lot narrower and the rubber cap that encloses the toes was *very* tight in height and width. Evert time I took a step it pinched the top of my toes. These also rode a little lower on the ankle than my previous Adidas shoes. Not really an issue, but makes these more stylish than functional/athletic. Really wish they had a better fit because I loved the look and style. Usually, I prefer a little wider shoe but can be comfortable in a medium width in most brands. However, the Superstar 2 is listed as a medium width, but was still much too narrow for my comfort. Regretfully, am returning mine.

Shipping was super fast. Shoes run big. Ordered a 1/2 size smaller based on other reviews but when I tried them on they were still big. Going to return and get a full size smaller.

I love shelltops and these are a great twist on the classic style. I always get a half size larger than other shoes and they are super comfy and hold up all day. Great support and cushy interior. I wear them year-round and this pair has gotten a ton of compliments

Overall good shoes. The only issue is that if whatever size you are you need to get it a half size smaller, otherwise they will feel bigger. I have been wearing them to work and they are doing good ten months down the road.

I really like these shoes. they were instantly comfortable, although, they seemed a bit wide. Maybe because they are men's shoes.

A great looking pair of sneakers, I usually get complimented on them. Good support, I managed to walk around in these shoes for about 2 hours before my feet started to hurt. Looks a bit wider in reality than in the photos. I agree with other reviewers that you should order a size down.

I don't think I'll ever go to another shoe store. Zappos.com is awesome! They under-promise and over-deliver with the delivery window (was told 4-6 business days, got it in 2!). My shoes were crisp, clean, and exactly what I ordered. I will always use Zappos.com from here on out!

I love these shoes. They run a little big, but I managed to still wear them comfortably with just shoe liners. If I was to order another pair, I would definitely go down in size by at least an half size. I normally wear an 8 1/2, but an 8 would be much better.

This is probably my 15th pair of superstars in this lifetime. I'm 35 years old and have been wearing them since I was in high school. You really can't go wring with shell toes, jeans and a tee or hoodie. Comfortable and cute. The only reason I knocked the review down by 1 star is that the construction seems to be slipping a bit. The shoes come laced, but not up to the top hole. Oddly enough those holes haven't been fully punched. I had a heck of a time trying to lace up the rest of the shoe.

A very cute shoe, but runs very big. I ordered the men's 7 1/2. I wear 8 1/2 to 9, but this fit more like a woman's 9 1/2.
