Normally I wear a 14, a 15 on rare occasions. And this 15 fit me tighter than most 14s would. Seemed a full size smaller. Otherwise seems like a nice, stylish shoe. I'd recommend ordering a size larger, at least in the larger sizes.

Recently purchased this shoe before traveling to Europe for 3 weeks. Like the style. Luck that I also took my Bostonian Slip Ons. This was the most uncomfortable shoe I have ever owned. Believe it was just very poor manufacturing. Left shoe was okay but right almost caused a blister on the top of my foot and the top of my large toe. The tongue of the left shoe keep moving to the inside of my shoe and only constant adjustment make the shoe better. After 5 days of trying "break in", I simply stopped wearing. I cannot recommend this shoe in the least.

I've worn Adidas almost exclusively for 30+ years and these Puma Romas are probably the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn. They feel even better than they look and this shoe overall is better than anything else I've ever worn. They're very soft, so there is no need to break them in or loosen the laces, to make them fit better; they are perfect right out of the box. They are also very light so you can wear them for a long time and almost feel like you're barefooted.

Although these shoes run a size small they were very comfortable once you get the size dialed in. They are light and easy to walk in. The retro style is a welcomed change given all the weird color combinations in shoes today. There is not much arch support to speak of, but I use a custom support and the support fits perfectly.

Excellent shoes. Great fit. Not as narrow as other pumas. Size is spot on. I wouldn't advise going up or down in sizes.

This is a great quality shoe and the only Puma's I have ever found that fit me. A caveat I would add is that the only reason I am pleased with these shoes is because my actual size is just over a 13 and I have a normal to slightly narrow foot but I ordered size 15 for these shoes. Very rare to find larger sizes like that in Puma's which is frustrating. These shoes are very comfortable though if you find the right amount of sizes over your actual size you need. I am disappointed in the colors to a degree because I really don't like white at all on shoes and I ordered the steel grey shoes which look grey online but look way too close to white in person. Oh well, at least they have a slight tinge of grey and they were the only ones I could get in size 15.

There are few shoe stores located in the Des Moines, IA area. I'm pretty plain and its hard to find plain white casual shoes, at a fair price. A friend at work recommended Zappos to me and I instantly found numerous pairs of shoes to my liking all for less. I found these Puma's which I had owned a pair before, it shipped for free and arrived in about 5 days in perfect condition. I easily will come back to Zappos for my next shoe purchase.

This is my fifth pair of Puma Roma Basics. Whenever one pair becomes unwearable due to extended use, I always buy another pair as a replacement. They are good, old-fashioned, reliable shoes!

After trying on a ton of trainers, I was happy to find these ones comfortable and chic at the same time. Most of the other 'trainers from Puma or adidas are too narrow. I have medium width and these are perfect.

Love this shoe. You can feel how comfortable it is when you slip them on. Smart, stylish, and functional. I would buy these shoes again in a heartbeat. A solid investment in a world where shoe shopping can sometimes be hit or miss.

Always wanted a runner style shoe and this was the one. Had Pumas back in junior high and wanted to bring back that good old classic shoes. These feel very comfortable first try. I like to wear my shoes little loose. Will recommend to everyone!

These shoes are really comfortable. There is a lot of padding on the inside. I own an older pair of these shoes and there is more padding on the tongue and on the heel on these than on the other pair I have. It is definitely worth it. I feel as if my feet are stepping on memory foam pillows. So comfortable. Because of the extra padding, I think they run about a half size smaller, so getting a bigger size than your actual size is definitely recommended. The design is sleek and stylish and the black and white is very simple and cool with the classic puma swish on the side.

Brands I'd also recommend: onitzuka tiger, saucony jazz, adidas samoa

These are my favorite shoes. They are leather and only leather shoes feel right to me. Walking in them feels natural because there is very little cushioning. These aren't running shoes.

The shoes are a bit still stiff after a week or so, but otherwise are comfortable. The leather also retains a bit of heat, but helps in the winter. I am also using for hospital practice since they are full leather toed.

I got the shoes and they are very comfortable. They were a little snug on the top on the right foot but a little adjusting of the laces solved it. I agree with other reviewers on 2 things: 1) order a full size up; I wear an 10.5 and ordered an 11.5, and my toe is right near the front (and I wear a wide so the larger size worked to give extra width); and 2) the tongue gets twisted due to the soft leather so make sure you straighten it before you stick your foot in.

I like how these look.. they don't look long and narrow like Converse All Stars do. They fit very well. However, the top material is quite stiff. I'm hoping that it will eventually soften out and be more comfortable. The top is not very padded, so it's not a very comfortable shoe for a lot of walking.
