Classic Adidas lover - I just had to have these shoes once I laid my eyes on them and I am completely happy that I got them. Not only are they comfortable, they are indeed fabulous to look at and Adidas is one of the best brands to wear. Plus delivery was top notch.

Adidas Superstar II - I've had a pair of black & brown Superstars for more than five years. Because I have exceptionally high arches, I put gel insoles in all my shoes, so I can't really say much about the comfort level or arch support of the shoes by themselves, but I've had no problems w/ them. I'd say that they're a little on the narrow side: After years of wear, I'm going to have to finally, unfortunately, buy a new pair because the leather has come apart from the sole a little at the widest part. I'm especially fond of the rubber toe cap, which, along w/ the full-grain leather & strong stitching, makes this a very sturdy pair of shoes, built to last. I usually ride my moped to work, & it helps to have shoes like these. Even when it's freezing outside, my feet don't get cold, & I don't have to worry much about road-related abrasions. I only wish that they were slightly wider & that they had leather interior (Ooohh, the luxury!) around the opening; my current shoes are very very worn out there.

Brands I'd also recommend: Other Adidas Classics, anything from Simple.

Soft-sided Superstars - These "suede" Superstars are even more comfortable than the "standard" ones - and the unique texture has you doing a double-take as the look is a little different too. I'm a Superstar 35th Anniversary collector and I almost want to put these in my show-only collection!

Love my red and black Superstar II - They look better than the white and black shell toes. They fit comfortably so much so that these shoes do not need any breaking in to get use to walking in them. These are very nice walking sneakers.

Took 3 tries to get the right fit, since these are sized for men. I'm normally about a 6.5 women's, so I got the corresponding men's size, too big. Went down to 5.5 womens, too big. Finally got it with a women's 4.5. Just assume if you're a woman that you're going to need a size or 2 smaller than you usually wear. Other than that, shoes look and feel good!

To those people who complained that these shoes are a bit narrow and the arch support is too much, well the solution is to walk in them regularly for a few months. The only improvement I would like to see from Adidas is to make the shell toe wider because I find them to be too narrow.

My daughter bought this shoe last year in another color. The comfort level is good, but the size does run a bit big. It's a bit of a bulky shoe, too.

A good shoe that's very stylish! Reccomend it to any Adidas fan of shoe enthusiast like me. Size was ok but felt a little small and narrow causing it not to be as comfortable overall a great shoe reccomend to any one!

This is a decent shoe for the price. I think I am in between a size and a size and a half, so it doesn't fit perfectly for me, but it still works. It tends to be a bit narrow though.

There is a reason why these shoes are one of the longest produced models from Adidas. They are worth every cent you will pay for them. They are light and extremely comfortable. The break-in period lasts less than a day if you wear them constantly. The flat soles conform to the terrain you're walking on, which should give you a more "down-to-Earth" feeling. The rubber toe is very durable, especially during those hacky sack sessions. Cons: These shoes don't breathe very well, since they are made of leather and rubber. Also, the soles will likely irritate most people, because they squeak at even the slightest friction. I happen to like it. Other: These don't come with the B-Boy laces from way back. These laces are 1cm wide, whereas the older ones were 1.5-2.0cm.

I bought these shoes for the old school vibe, but it turns out that I love them for the comfort. They are great! The arch support is moderate, which is perfect for my low arches, and the overall feel is very comfortable. Plus they really have a great look!

These are great - a little stiff in the sole, but for the price very durable and comfortable shoes. Great design. They tend to come undone in the laces - and people think I am a Saints Fan - but overall, a beautiful shoe.

The shoes are very comfortable, but they run a half size small. Style is classic. They hold up well to harsh winter weather.

I bought these to wear on stage in a rap number as part of a larger performance. They look great and fit just fine. If you want the old school Adidas look, pick up a pair of these.

Great! The sneakers are classics, my husband loves them, although I will give them 4 stars this time for comfort. As he says, the arch support is not the same as the ones he got 2 years ago. But Zappos is amazing, as always! That's why for my online shoe purchasing, nowhere else will do! They even sent me a "love" email and the sneakers were here the next day! Thanks, Zappos.

These shoes are classics. I\'ve been wearing this style of shoe for years and keep on returning because the timeless style and great comfort. They have fantastic arch support and keep my foot feeling safe, without being orthopedics. The only downside I\'ve experience is that they tend to pull my short socks down to my toes. This is minor and probably won\'t happen to everyone.

I go to the gym with these shoes and they are NOT very comfortable. The ARCH support is way TOO MUCH. It’s been getting better with time, but it hurts my feet when I put pressure on them. Not recommended for exercise. I don’t even consider jogging with them for comfort reasons. Shoes look really cool, and if you’re not pounding on them, they are ok. Overall 4/5.

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.
