These have an old school look; remind me of the Adidas Hemp Gazelle. If you have worn Gazelles from BITD you will like these! Love the color! They seem a bit bigger because of the canvas material but my usual size 11 fit fine with an Odor Eater insole.

If these weren't so narrow, they'd be in my closet. Sweet style, sweet colors, comfortable cushioning, just narrow. I read the reviews and saw they ran narrow, but took a chance anyway. Thank you Zappos for free shipping and returns! If you don't have wide feet, buy these!

Excellent classic style and fit. These wonderful originals fit exactly per sizing, the comfy canvas uppers have a lot of give and will not rub your foot wrong. The flexible tongue adds to the overall comfort. The quality construction of the sole and its integration with the canvas upper far outstrip similar shoes of other brands.

These shoes are wonderful. Great color, great material, and there's even some slight arch support. My only complaint is that the back of the shoe rises up a little high and runs my Achilles' tendon a bit. Not a huge problem though. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Great shoes! I am a dancer with a background in House Dancing, Bboying, & Rocking and this shoe has been awesome. Fairly light and has great padding and grip for a normal walk or a simple night of dancing.

This is my second pair, bought the black ones first. These shoes are great! They are an amazing alternative to Chucks!

I had never tried shopping at Zappos for my son, but at 13 he hates shopping. Zappos, with their free return policy is perfect for a picky teenager. Luckily, no return was necessary as he loves the shoes. They seem to be holding up very well and they look very sharp!

Got these shoes to replace a pair of used campers nabbed at a thrift store 3 years ago that finally have to be resoled. This is the first shoe I've owned where the sole is narrower than the canvas area where my foot sits and was uncertain of how that was going to play out as i run, bike, long board etc. in them. They've been fine for everything so far. I don't see these as lasing nearly as long as my previous shoes, but the price new isn't really comparable. They fit true to size and the width is good. Wore them without socks out ofthe box and no blisters or cramping. Good shoes overall if they're what you're into.

I like the look of these shoes and that is the main reason I bought them but I hate how thick the sole is. I am not sure why any Adidas wants to make you taller on a sneaker (this is my second pair of Adidas and both had stupidly thick soles). If you don't mind the soles, these are OK shoes, not extremely comfortable but not painful to wear either. I am going back to Reebok, Ralph Lauren and new balance since so far they have been more comfortable.

An ok shoe. The pictures looked a lot better than what I got, but still nice overall. Very thin and light... More like a loafer than anything else. Runs larger than what I should be. If you're thinking of purchasing these shoes, you might want to start with at least a half size smaller than you're used to. I had a little more than 1.25 inches in front of my big toe and it was very loose.

Not exactly what I was expecting but still a solid sneaker if not a bit on the pricey side. Considering they're just glorified Chucks at almost double the price, I wasn't blown away, but they are really comfortable and fit perfectly.

The shoe looks cooler in the pictures. I was disappointed with the feel of the material. When I tried them on, they felt larger and narrower than I wanted. When I tried walking in them, I was disappointed with the arch support and the overall comfort. I am returning them tomorrow for my 2nd pair of Onitsuka Tigers by Asics, a much more comfortable shoe in my opinion...and just as "vintage" looking.

This shoe did not last a month before the front on each shoe split open. This is not a shoe for an active 9 year-old boy as it will not hold up. Very disappointed in the quality especially at this price point.
