Very cute but definitely narrower/tighter than traditional Chuck Taylor low tops. There are seams on the inside, presumably where the tongue is sewn to the toe piece, that rub against the top of my foot in a really irritating way. But I'm hopeful that those will get softened and worn down after some time because these do look cute. I wore them with leggings and a dress one night and then with jean shorts and a tee shirt the next day and they looked good both ways. A subtly feminine twist on a classic.

I just received these and they are misrepresented in the photos online. They have a cheap look to them and the labels on the tongue and back of the shoes have a very tiny print on them so it looks like I cheaped out and bought a pair of bastard chucks. This is my second pair of converse I've ordered from Zappos and I'm getting frustrated. The first pair looked like the ones in the pictures and fit snug without socks, which in turn destroyed my heels so I had to wear them like slippers after only one hour when I was at Coachella all day. After washing Coachella off of them they shrunk, so non-returnable I finally decided to order another pair in a bigger size thinking they'd fit better with socks, but they are too big. They aren't cute, they are long and really narrow looking. Not at all flattering. I'm returning them. I'm so disappointed.

Love these shoes. Not as clunky as the usual Converse which I love. Great fit, good color. Would definitely buy again.

I am a size 6.5, but got a size 7 and it fits perfect, so I recommend a half size up. These shoes are very comfortable... took them out of the box, wore them all day and no blisters! My favorite thing is that these are not clunky at all and are extremely light, unlike other converse I've worn. I do suffer from bunions, but was not bothered by pain or uncomfortableness so give these a shot!

Like this shoe very much. I was a little concerned about how tight the shoe would be, I am normally an 8 1/2 so I ordered the size 8 since there are no half sizes. I read many other reviews that said the shoes were extremely tight. I can say the shoes were tight the first couple times I wore them. After that the shoes fit excellent. Very happy with my purchase and will order more in the future.

I bought these for my daughter who will only wear Converse brand shoes. I am honestly not sure about them being true to their size. I have always bought her the same size in Converse brand shoes so they were true to the Converse brand size, and are not my daughter's favorite shoes. She loves how light they are, told me they are some of the most comfy Converse shoes she has worn, and totally loves the color. They look cute with a pair of jeans or a cute little skirt. Great shoes, do recommend them.

I love these "dainty" ones way more than regular chucks. I bought this dainty pair because I liked the color but another regular pair too. The regular ones looked like clown shoes on me! The soles were so thick and bulky. I even showed my husband and had him hold each one and the weight on the regular ones was so heavy!! I sent those back and kept these dainty ones. I've had my fair share of chucks over the years and these just look so much better on my feet. They are a bit snug but not too much to be concerned.

I love these! The more delicate shape is amazing, and makes me so happy. :) I actually find these more comfortable than regular Chucks, and a few people have asked how I got my Chucks to have a smaller white band, lol. Get these socks to go with them! They do show a little on me (my Chucks are a 7), but very minimally. Almost perfect!

I bought this in a couple of colors which are true as displayed. I am very happy with my purchase. I love the slimmer profile. Its a lot more feminine in my opinion. I am usually between a 7.5 and 8, but the 8 fit perfectly in this case and a 7.5 would have been too tight. I have narrow feet. If you have very wide feet, you may need to break it in. But for average to skinny feet sizing up by a half size should be more than enough. I also love the obvious durability. I also find it very comfortable. My only request is for cute colorways. Like the pale pink, and even a pastel yellow.

These are great, after breaking them in for a couple of weeks. They are cute; I have always loved canvas shoes for spring, summer, and early fall. These Dainty's run narrow in width. However, I normally wear a size 7.5 comfortably, but I ordered a half-size down and I don't regret it. These shoes broke in real nice and are my favorite light weather shoe! I wouldn't have purchased a size up because once you break 'em in, they are a prefect fit (for me)! Great buy!

Awesome shoe. These are so cute and light, unlike the original Converse. The sole is thinner and doesn't look "clunky". I bought these for power-lifting and do believe they will work just fine. These are NOT unisex and fit true to size. What some people don't realize is that the original Converse are sized for men. So while you may be a man's size 5 in the original, in these you would be a size 7. I wear a man's 5/woman's 7. I ordered a size 7 and it fits perfectly. I have flat feet and don't find these to be too narrow. There is also plenty of wiggle room for my toes. It doesn't have a lot of arch support, but it works for my purposes.

I ordered these in grey, and they will go with everything. They fit just right -- not too tight like the lite ox and not big and clunky like the regular style.

Definitely a narrow shoe; perhaps even more narrow than the other Chuck models. As a result of the narrow construction, I ordered a size up and they fit well. They are a bit long, but my heel doesn't slip at all, probably given the snug fit on the width. I so wish they'd make half sizes, since I'm a 7.5 I really think a 7.5 would fit perfectly, but I love the shoes, so a size 8 looking a bit longer on my foot is acceptable.

Terrible experience. the fabric inside the heel wore out after about ten wearings, and the rubber poked through causing blisters. Won't ever wear converse again. Plus, runs large.

These are a girl shoe fitted for girl's feet but keeping in the Chuckie Taylor style. I find it a great combo and only wish they came in more girl colors!

Love these shoes, I have had a pair in oxford for some time now and wanted a pair of red ones. I love the dainty fit, less clunky and much lighter than the original Chucky T's.

I am a mom of a teenager and a 6 year old and do a lot of running around with kid centered activities. These shoes are perfect for even a middle aged girl like me. Makes me look young but I don't look like I'm "trying." Very comfortable for hours. Would like to get more in different colors since my teenager seems to borrow them often.

I used to have a pair in high school and love them. I find that they are my new go to shoes. I am just waiting to get a pair in white and red now. I will mention if you like something with a bit of a heel these are not your shoe also if you have problems with your arches I still highly recommend them but you will need to use inserts there is no arch support. I love my new shoes.

I did not find these to run small, quite the opposite. I normally wear a 9.5 so I ordered a 10. They were much too long (maybe 3/4") so I am exchanging them for a 9. They are super-cute, so I hope the 9 works!

I ordered these shoes over two years ago and have worn them nearly every day since. Sure, some of the metal eyelets on the side are gone, the color has faded and the soles have worn thin, but they are worn with love! Wish I could afford another pair, but times are tough. I will continue enjoying them while they last!

I've been wearing these frequently for a few weeks and I love them! I got one blister from them, but other than that they have been very comfortable and add some style to my typical "mom" outfit of jeans and a t-shirt. I had been wearing Toms as my go-to everyday shoes, but the Converse are sturdier and I think they will last longer.

Zappos, why are you so awesome?? Love the product, it's offered at a fair price, and the free shipping is fabulous. But I'm giving 5 stars equally for that AND for the incredible customer service your company offers. Ordered these shoes Friday, received them on Monday (slightly big)...their replacement (with no extra charge to my credit card) is set to be delivered to me today, Tuesday, by the end of the day. Outstanding! I've always been a fan but you've really wowed me this time!

I ordered these shoes even after reading the reviews that they were made narrow. I have wide feet and they have been in a box for the last month because of flip flop season. Today is like fall weather and I put them on and they fit perfect not to narrow, wore them all day and my feet are not sore. Very happy I took the risk that they would fit.
