The most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever worn. They feel like bedroom slippers for everyday use. Now, make sure you get a whole size larger that you usually would. They are cut small. I bought a size 10 and they were too small, I sent them back and got a size 11 (I have never worn shoes over size 10) and they fit great!

Great shoes! Very comfortable for everyday wear. I wear mine everywhere and so far they are holding up to my lifestyle. Not only are they environmentally friendly, but they're stylish, I get compliments all the time. Overall, great pair of kicks! As previously stated in other reviews, I would definitely get a size bigger than what I normally wear. If you don't, have no fear - Zappos will definitely take care of you. I ordered mine without reading the reviews, only to realize that they were really tight when I tried them on. I contacted Zappos and they shipped out a new size the very next day. Hats off to Simple & Zappos! Got a customer for life.

I love the shoes, have received many compliments. They are comfortable everyday casual shoes even though I find myself wearing them at night as well. Previous reviews were correct, need to order at least 1/2 size larger than you normally wear. They are wider shoes and have some arch support, but I do not have issues with arch support as others may have.

First of all I love the shoes. They are just right for my style. Comfortable and affordable. But most of all I love shopping on Zappos. From browsing to purchasing and even returns. I use the Android app from my car to order at noon one day and had the order on my doorstep just over 24 hours later. Nice job guys.

I had another pair of shoes that I didn't like and Zappos was the most amazing company I have ever done business with. Seriously. They not only shipped me the new pair of shoes I wanted before I even had shipped the first ones back (trust), but they also covered the extra difference the new shoes cost! Amazing. I have never ever seen a business do that. Outstanding. The only issue I have is that the shoes I got were slightly too small but I didn't want to go through the hassle of shipping again. Thanks Zappos.

I had a similar pair of black Simples a few years ago and really enjoyed them, so I purchased these. Definitely get at least one size larger than usual. I didn't read the reviews prior to ordering them and had to send them back. I typically wear a 10, but could not even fit it onto my foot. I contacted Zappos online and a pair of 11's arrived the next day. They actually fit but the back of the shoe dug into my heel. After wearing them a few times, they stretched out and fit great now.

I wear these all the time. They look great and, once worn in, are very comfortable. Few notes though: I know a lot of people immediately say they fit small and order a size up, but with these - like Sanuks - they aren't designed to be worn with socks and are more of an alternative to flip flops. I usually wear a size 10 and ordered a size 10, and now that they are worn in they fit great. They are snug and I can't wear socks with them, but I think that's the idea. There is definitely a break-in period. The material is more heavy-duty than I thought. I own a pair of the Gumshoes and those are like slippers compared to these. The first time I wore these I had band-aids on the backs of my heels! For a while I just bent the back down and wore them like clogs until the material got thinner and more comfortable. Now they're fine, but it does seem like the material that covers the heel is cut too far forward (hence the bandaid) as there is an unusual amount of space behind my foot inside the shoe. They have zero support under your foot which I guess is to be expected, but the other pair of Gumshoes has at least a little bit. I wear those all the time and was expecting the same with the Gummy, but there is very little padding with these. All that being said, I still love the style and love how they have broken in and formed to my feet. These are a few improvements away from being perfect.

The Simple Gummy is a very stylish shoe, but is at least one full size smaller than marketed. Not much arch support, but again, very nice looking.

These shoes are very comfortable and look great with jeans. They looks wide even if you order the normal width shoe, so these won't look right with shorts. The only downside of the shoe is the sole is very minimal, not a lot of cushioning. If you plan on walking a lot wear a different pair of shoes that day.

Best shoes for lounging. I can slip them on quickly for an errand, wear them to work and I even wore them to a wedding. Size does matter as reviews for these suggest a size larger, I went 2 sizes larger (11 took a 12). The sole is flat and allows you to feel like you're walking barefoot and the canvas is cool, especially with socks. Many compliments, both to me and from me.

Sizing is about 1/2 smaller than what you would normally wear. Thus if you are a size 9 - get a size 9.5.

Really liking these things. Can't wait to actually wear them outdoors if spring ever arrives. Only minor issue is the fabric behind the heel is a little rough on the skin. But that could be because I've been wearing socks all fall and winter.

Agree with the tight fit. I'd go with an 11 instead of a 10.5 next time, but the snug fit does keep them from sliding around. Otherwise, they're great. Much better than the Gumshoe because the elastic laces keep things snug. I can dress them up with slacks & jeans, socks or not.

Brands I'd also recommend: uh, Simple. They've got something for everyone.

Great looking shoe. Although they are smaller than other Simple shoes. When ordering these, I suggest getting a size larger.

The shoes look great, but they just aren't as cushy as I hoped. They really need a bit more padding in the footbed.

These fashionable shoes are as pretty as they are flat. If I had multiple pairs of shoes I may keep a pair of these as a lounging pair, but if you plan on walking or riding a bike often, pass on these.

First of all these shoes are vegan and made from recycled materials, so in terms of minimizing environmental impact they are a great choice. The fabric that these are made of is very rigid, and looks high quality. They are easy to slip on and off. I did find that they were a bit tight for the size, so I would recommend ordering half a size up. The soles are flat on the bottom, thin, but are very dense, and because of this, you can often get the feel of the texture of the surface upon which you are walking. I am very happy with the quality and value of these shoes, and would recommend them.

These run small, or so I thought when I first slipped them on. Honestly, after a few wears, they felt fine. A half size up wouldn't hurt, but they're fine for casual wear.

Great for what it is. It isn't a walking shoe though, so if you're on your feet for long hours don't get this one. It is definitely small though. I usually wear an 11 and a 12 barely fits me.

Overall a pretty nice shoe, I would definitely recommend getting at least a half size bigger than you normally do. I usually wear 10 & halfs, but got an 11 this time.
