These are great basic sneaker! The only real difference from previous versions of the Tekkie is that Puma has replaced the frayed, distressed ankle with a neatly stitched one. Otherwise they have the same simple, low profile style. These shoes use a much softer canvas than some similar offerings, like the Keds Champion, for example. The result is a very lightweight, slipperlike shoe that is very comfortable, but do not go looking for much in the way of arch support or plan to run a marathon in these. Overall they are great shoes, and a delightful change of pace from the run-of-the-mill crosstrainers that everyone else wears.

These are so un-original. This is almost as bad as Sketchers Bobs rip-off of Toms. These are Keds, so just go buy Keds.

I do like it so much, and unfortunately they never made something near to it. The only bad thing that get dirty fast, but believe me it is my best, and I really wish they did have more colors to buy more.

This is by far my most favorite pair of shoes that I have owned. I bought mine a couple of years back in a nice darker blue color, when the ankle area was designed to be all frayed and such, and I still wear them. I would absolutely buy another pair if they came in as many colors as before. These are great shoes all around, just do bot get them wet.

My boyfriend loves these shoes! He likes them so much in fact that his first, grey pair were abused to the point of exposing multiple toes before he tossed those and bought another pair. Unbeknownst to him, I'd just purchased new ones for him the same day. Are we sending one pair back? No way! With the shoes' six month life span and boyfriend's style preference of no socks when wearing these with shorts, we might even buy another pair. Four stars (lost one for no arch support) and two thumbs up.

I love these Puma Tekkies. I have them now in 4 different colors. They are a stylish, yet minimalist shoe. Not for running in, but perfect for running around. They are inexpensive enough that I can mix and match them depending on what I am wearing for the day. Good value, and comfortable!

I love these Puma Tekkies. They are very minimalist in design. My favorite part is the puma logo on the side. Very comfortable for everyday use. When they get dirty, I take the laces out and throw them in the washing machine. A good value and nice color selection.

Had the original Tekkies Jam and loved them. Just wasn't too impressed with the frayed look. When this version came out I was looking forward to them. I thought same great shoe with a cleaner look. However, I was a little disappointed in the material. It was a bit stiffer than the original. I will just have to break them in. Basically they need the frayed material in the clean look to make it perfect. I still highly recommend them.

The ordering process was extremely straightforward and user friendly. Zappos was great in updating me about my order status and my shoes were delivered right on time! Couldn't complain about a single thing!

I thought these shoes were pretty stylish. I got the light grey ones. Didn't expect them to have any cushion at all but to my surprise there is a cushiony sole in them. Not alot but enough mainly for the heel. I have flat feet so idk if that would be a factor or not. I give the shoes five stars for comfort because they are way more comfortable then what i would have expected from such a thin shoe. They are a great alternative for a classic look. I like the fact that the fabric is not stiff. They are true to size and fit me just as they should. I haven't had a problem with my heel popping out or the spine of the shoes coming off my foot. I would buy more pairs in different colors.

I am in love. The Tekkies are awesome. People stop me on the street and say, Love your shoes! I am happy wearing them. It makes others happy to see them. But only one drawback. They want to dance. Yes, you can not stand still. It is very hard for this 65 year old to explain why I am rocking at the grocery store checkout line when my Puma's are in control. Very comfortable. Very fun shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keds CVO but not as much fun

Love these shoes for summer! They are super easy to just throw on with shorts and in white they go with everything. They are very thin material and thin soles. You will feel what you're walking on. I find them fairly comfortable and they only become unpleasant if I've been walking in them for long period of time. Being that I got them in white I've had to wash them a few times and the shoe in general has held up well. The insert did a little worse and cloth top with the logo has come off. That's hardly a negative though. Great stylish shoes, I recommend them!

I would only purchase these shoes if you plan to wear once or twice. They get super dirty and are hard to clean. They look amazing though and I received a ton of compliments!

Just right if this is what you want. They are practically weightless and cut slightly large, at least in size 12. I bought them to use as boat shoes and they work fine. They are comfortable, dry quickly, but offer zero support. Expect something about half the weight of the Keds they look like.

Very basic shoe, almost nothing to them at all. Cloth and a bit of rubber. But, I ordered mine a size small and they still felt way too big. They're going back, and I didn't like them enough to exchange for a smaller size.

These are quite possibly the worst shoes I have ever owned. They have 0 sturdiness at the back, so I'm always feeling like I'm about to "slide back" from the sole; and material will definitely rip in a couple of months. Upper material is so thin you can see fingers so this shoe looks not unlike a thin sock. It is also extremely prone to getting dirty due to aforementioned thinness.
