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.

Very cute, more feminine looking and not nearly as heavy as boy Chucks. I love mine! Toe is a little narrow so not sure how they'd do on wider feet. I got the same size I wear in other shoes (whereas boy Chucks I'd have to order down a size). Very happy with these!

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 ordered these in both an 8 and a 9 because I was unsure about the sizing. I usually wear a size 8.5 (39 Euro) and with the regular Chuck Taylor sneakers I wear an 8 (men's 6). This "dainty" style does seem to run small. The 8 squeezed my toes and felt generally too tight, but the 9 fit fine. I have worn them out once and have had no blisters or other problems with 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.

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 my first pair of Converse and I'm very pleased with them. I had read that they ran large, but Zappos sizing recommendations were spot on. I normally wear between a 5 and 6; half sizes weren't available so I went up to a 6 and they fit me like a glove. They are also incredibly comfortable even right out of the box. I don't think I'll have to "wear them in" like some other shoes. I ordered another pair of Converse as well in a 5.5, and somehow they are slightly bigger. So these definitely run smaller than the normal Converse. Follow Zappos recommendations, they know what they're doing!

My daughter really likes these and I think they look super cute on her! She has worn them to school a lot and I think her only complaint would be that it takes time to tie up the laces (she is used to slip-on shoes).

I have been Chuck Taylor's since my teens and I am in my late 50's. I love the shoes. So when I was the Chuck Dainty Converse I thought I would give them a try. LOVE them! True to size and width. Very comfy and feminine. Looks great with skirts and boyfriend jeans. Would recommend giving them a try.

Converse sneakers just don't have much support, and these are no exception. I knew that when I ordered them, but they're cute and otherwise a good fit, so I just put an arch support orthotic in them and they're fine.

These shoes are so cool. They go well with everything I wear (including my suit when I walk to work). When I have to sprint to the subway station in the busy streets of New York, these shoes get me there without a hitch. I usually wear them with socks though because otherwise, they'd rub the back of my ankle in an irritating way, but I think that's partly because I have bone-y feet I do wish they came in half sizes. I usually wear a 7.5, and ordered an 8. The 7 would've definitely been too small. The 8 is ok, but I do have extra space on the heel area, which is why socks are necessary.
