Awesome shoe! looks amazing. FYI Chuck Taylors are about a 1/2 bigger than most, so I figured these would be the same, however these are true to size. So don't go off of Chuck Taylor size. But these shoes are really, really nice and look amazing, plus they have a nice padded insole, so they are a little more comfy.

Terrible purchase. The bottom edges of the shoe fell apart and peeled off within a couple months of wearing the shoe (not daily use, mind you). I liked the look and fit, but honestly, it just blew apart. Total mess.

Great shoe. I feel like all Purcells run a little large though. I always by a half size smaller. Great service from Zappos as ever. Thanks!

I purchased these easy-on, easy-off shoes for a trip to Japan (where it's customary to remove one's shoes when entering homes, many restaurants, shrines, etc.). They worked great; I was able to easily slip them on and off without sitting or squatting to tie laces. I didn't break them in prior to doing a lot of walking during our two week trip, but experienced no blisters (I did wear them with footie socks, due to the high humidity and heat). I also used them in combination with drugstore shoe inserts to add a bit of arch support. The white rubber, as expected, collected a fair amount of grime and scuffs, but the shoes still look fairly presentable.

I'm on my third pair of these shoes. Not because they wear too quickly but because I walk everywhere and wear them often. They're a great shoe and staple of my wardrobe.

I love the leather style. I received many compliments at work. These are a bit tight, but after couple of wearings they are starting to get comfortable.

This shoe is amazingly comfortable. It's such a great slip on. I bought one pair, and then I bought another because I liked them so much and because of the great price.

Just got these today and love them. I was hesitant to order the 10.5 because I'm usually a straight 10, but they were out of the grey color and I thought that a little extra room couldn't hurt. They're perfect. I have a feeling the 10s would fit, but be snug, so it all worked out. I love the classic American sportwear vibe of these - almost like the Keds from the 60s. I can't wait to dress them into different outfits and styles.

Great shoe. Comfortable immediately out of the box and that says a lot since my feet are notoriously difficult to find comfortable stylish shoes for (due to my feet size and width). Good with jeans, sweats, slacks and for anything on the walk. Will probably get a few more of these, definitely a favorite.

Okay. I've always wanted a pair of Converse without the lace so at first I ordered the Chuck Taylor black one and it's just not right. So I tried Jack Purcell. The smiley face in the front definitely looks very cute and the shape of the shoe is good and makes your feet look cute too. I was a bit worried that the leather like material would be too hot for the summer, but no, they feel just right. You can wear it in summer as well as when it gets colder. One thing to mention though, it is really tight at first on the arch but once it's stretched out, it feel just right and won't get too loose either. It's also good for walking. Love it!

This shoes are really cute, convenient and versatile. They are lightweight enough that you can wear them when it's hot but still of cover you up. They do not cut into my feet at all or cause any blistering which is always a concern.

It's no secret that a great "faux athletic shoe" can go to any occasion with the cheeky confidence of being noticed, even under a wedding gown at the bride's mega party of her life. This Jack Purcell is the ingenue in her category. The grey color is perfect, with it's mauve undertones. The weight is light, the style refined, the fit true to size. This little shoe carries confidence, humor, style wherever she goes. Watch out for her, better yet, buy her now and see for yourself.

My daughter loves these. She wore them on her DC fieldtrip and unlike many of her friends she was very comfortable. They are stylish, too. Mom wants a pair.

Runs small. Order at least a half size up. The free returns makes getting the right size easy, but might as well try to get it right the first time. Awesome shoes. Get compliments as well as weird looks all the time. So much better than the cheapie Chuck Taylors. I use these frequently and they're still going strong after a year.

Would have loved these shoes - if they fit! I wish that Converse could standardize their sizes - some shoes run 1.5 size big, some .5 size too big. Apparently these run true to size, so I am returning and will reorder my true size.

I really like the low profile and slip-on style of this shoe. I think it is much more flattering to the foot and way more stylish than the Converse Chuck Taylor. This shoe looks great with jeans, shorts and casual summer wear. The yellow color is different, but looks great with denim. It is definitely a conversation-starter!

I normally don't like converse because they don't have much arch support, but these are super comfy and cute. The price on Zappos is a very good price. It's being sold for more at Nordstrom. get it here! free shipping and all that good stuff!

What\'s not to like? I get these by the dozen, the perfect go everywhere shoe. And slip-ons are especially good at airports.

These are graet sneakers that look good with skinny jeans. They are slightly padded inside, so they are pretty comfortable. The Converse ones that aren't Jack Purcells have almost NO padding, so be sure to get these. They run true to size but maybe a bit narrow.

Very cute - I love the slightly distressed look and convenience of the slip-on styling. A word of caution: Zappos' sizing is off, and different from Chuck Taylor's. For reference, I wear a regular women's 7. In classic Chuck Taylors I have size 4.5. I ordered the same size in these (according to Zappos, the 4.5 M/6.0 W). When they arrived, the box said 4.5 M/6.5 W. They were a bit too small and I'm exchanging them for the 5.0 M/7.0 W (or, according to Zappos, the 5.0 M/6.5 W). Very confusing.

I bought these because I'm a fan of Chuck Taylors and wanted something similar to their simplicity. Overall, I am pleased with my purchase. This shoe has a thin padding between material making the sides and lip of the shoe more comfortable. Also I was pleased to find a cushioned sole insert which is definitely an upgrade from the regular Chucks I am used to. The sole insert is not glued down and can be removed easily. The blue rubber sole on the bottom of the shoe isn't very rigid compared to Chucks and I can see this wearing down quicker. The sizing of the shoe is similar to the sizing of Chuck Taylors. I wear US 11s but always order 10.5 when getting Chucks. The shoe adds about 1 inch to your height when they are on your feet. The white rubber around the smile of the shoe contains tiny little circles on them giving them a rough edge. If you zoom in far enough in the preview window you will see what I am talking about. Minimal arch support.
