I could not love Zappos more. Super fast shipping and my husband loved the shoes. I'm not shopping for shoes any where else!

I bought a pair of these shoes because I like creative recreation and I wanted a simple shoe to wear during the summer without socks. These shoes look nice, but they are very uncomfortable. Walking a couple of blocks leaves my heel rubbed raw and the tops of my toes rubbed raw from the Velcro strap pinching down when I walk. Yes, I did order the correct size. Unfortunately I had to walk these around the block in the rain to figure this out, or I'd be sending them back. Sure the strap is a nice touch, but there are many more comfortable, affordable shoes in this style to choose from besides these.

These kicks are so fresh. I have had them for 7-8 months now and I am still getting complements on them. They look great with jeans & shorts and are not uncomfortable to wear. A must buy for creative rec fans.

I have two pairs of Creative Recs and I love them. They are stylish and classy at the same time. The color in the picture matches the actual color of the shoes exactly.

Awesome shoes. I bought a pair of white Cesario Lo XVI before and loved them, so I had to get another, this time in black. This shoe is very trendy and matches well with most any style of modern fashion. You will, however, find that it does not or has very little arch support, being a shoe with a flat bottom. Nevertheless, they are comfortable and look great. And of course, Zappos.com is the place to get them.

These shoes are pretty awesome. I think these shoes are really stylish. Since they're raw denim I never wear them on rainy days or even wear denim pants with them.

These are very comfortable. The fact that they are all white makes it possible for me to wear to work with khaki's.

The CR shoes really feel comfortable, and the design is awesome! You can wear it casually with jeans or shorts and will match perfectly. This is a very good buy for the price.

Overall the shoes are great. The only thing is the shoes are white which isn't Zappos fault cause I ordered them. You just really have to take good care of them.

They look exactly like the picture. Man's sizes run exact and are a tight fit. (While woman's sizes run a little smaller). I have these shoes in a few colors already and will probably continue to buy more through Zappos.

They're a half size smaller than other Cesarios. I have 4 other 1st gen. Cesario lows and they are great fitting but the classic XVI's are slightly smaller. Order a half size smaller.

Brands I'd also recommend: Creative Recs they stay classy

The shoes are kind of uncomfortable to walk in but, I have another pair of the Cesario Lo XVI that are perfectly fine in comfort so it is only uncomfortable due to the fact that it has not been broken in. The shoe is also made of cloth so there is not much support of the ankle but, overall I am happy with the purchase.

These shoes look really nice. However, they were not the most comfortable shoes. It's a shoe that you should wear occasionally and not every day. I get compliments from other people of these shoes.

I'm very happy with my purchase of this shoe. 5 stars in terms of style, I like to wear this as a casual shoe for going out. I basically bought these as an upgrade from a pair of Chuck Taylors, which is kind of how they feel. This also means that they're not all that comfortable, hence the 2 star comfort level. This is a shoe for someone looking for a stylish-casual shoe and not a shoe for someone with bad feet. Another important thing to consider: when fitting, make sure you walk around in these guys to get the right size. If they're too big, the strap will make an awkward noise when you walk around. Maybe this goes away when they're worn in, but I wouldn't risk it.

Style of this shoe is great. But they are narrow, feel a half size larger, and that they make a noise every time you step because of the strap. Other than that they are good.

Shoe looked great! However, when my son got them wet in the rain, the brownish buckle part faded on the white...ouch. And there was no cleaning it. Zappos was great about replacing the shoe. We choose the same style but the all denim color. Thanks Zappos!

I usually wear an 11.5 in creative recreation, I add to send those back and get a pair of 11s.The rubber soles on these shows give off an extremely annoying clop clop sound every time you walk/bend your foot. Maybe it will go away once they're broken in? I'm not sure if I can put up with it until then, and I'm thinking of sending them back. Great looking shoes, decent quality otherwise.

Not very good shoes. First time I used them the front of the shoe was getting peeled off. Very poor condition. I do not recommend them.

Do not buy these shoes. The rubber started coming off at the corners where the shoe flexes when you walk. I think it's because the glue is not strong enough to hold against the canvas material. This happened within a month for me. I have around 10 pairs of Creative Recs. These were the most disappointing. Don't try and contact their customer service. They are hard to get a hold of. Now, I try not to even look at what they have to offer.

These are pretty cool shoes. They fit nice and look nice. They have a pretty tight fit so you may want to buy a size bigger or use thinner socks. Overall these are good shoes that I would definitely recommend.
