I love these shoes. They are very minimal. It feels like you are wearing slippers. The only issue is that the canvas seems to get dirty very easily. I'm not sure how easy it will be to clean, but I'm not very hopeful.

Great shoe! Super comfy for a minimal-type sole. They're slightly narrow near the toe, but so much that'd I'd return them. But just in case you have fat toes.

These shoes are very snug, I wouldn't call them tight or too small though. They are somewhat minimalist with little to no support, which I kind of like as but if you're not used to minimalist shoes, you're feet will get sore after walking in them a lot. My only complaint is that all the material on the top of the shoe is canvas so it has that dull matte finish you get with canvas instead of a shinier look you get with leather or other materials. Maybe I should have expected that from a shoe called "vegan."

This is the second time I've purchased these shoes. I wish there were other color options. More importantly, I ordered the same size the second time and they were significantly smaller. I bought the first pair in March of 2014 and the second pair in April of 2015. I wore my first pair with support inserts, the second pair was so tight without the inserts that they made the tops of my feet ache after only a few minutes. I exchanged them for a half size bigger and now I kind of regret not going a full size.

Wow. Light and so comfortable right out of the box! It is almost like wearing a high tech moccasin. People say here it is close to barefoot and I see where they are coming from. As such, they do not have a lot of arch support but this does not bother me. The do feel cushy and have a form to your foot feel. I do not really feel that they run that small. Perhaps people are not used to a moccasin like shoe that conforms and closely fits your foot. I take either a 10 or a 10½ in most shoes. I did get the 10½ and they fit just fine but not overly tight. I think it is the design of the shoe to fit the foot closely. In any case, these shoes look great, they even dress up in a funky way and they are so far, very comfortable. This is my second pair of Sauconys and my first pair Rock as well. They still look new. I am not particularly hard on shoes. Still this company appears to combine quality and comfort with great style. Overall, recommended for those that would like a great looking shoe that feels like a moccasin.

Very nice shoe, but it seemed very small and I returned it. If they had a larger size (14.5 or 15) I would have reordered. Incredibly light. nicely made but does not appear like it will last very long. Almost did not order the shoe because of the silly pretentious 'Vegan" label. Except in dire circumstances, I do not eat shoes.

I'm usually a boring, white-shoe guy, but my wife picked these out and told me to give them a try. I'm glad I did. They're light as a feather, and really stylish. A little snug in the toes, but that loosened up after about a week. I'll go with this style again, maybe even white.

Tried these on for the first time today. They feel true to size. For perspective I am between a typical 12 and 13. Almost all my shoes are a 13, but prefer a 12 wide if available, especially in a boot. I also have high arches and have trouble getting into shoes that are long and narrow in the toe box, especially if the tongue is attached high on the shoe (not a fan of most slip ons). With that in mind, on me they fit a little long but the width is fine. If you like slippers with some heel padding these will work. Light, breathable and optionally flashy and vegan if that's your thing. The closest thing I've worn to them before are Converse. These have more heel padding and less in the front. I think they're fine casual shoes. Be nice at the beach as they'd probably go through the wash easily after. Not holding my breath they last long while doing much more than sitting in them. I will not be running or hiking in them. Cycling in them might be okay for short runs, too soft for a long ride. For the price, that's a realistic expectation. When they wear through get another pair in another color. Rinse and repeat.

These shoe sizes are completely wrong. They are off by at least a half size. I'm not sure why size is subjective with some of these companies.

I guess I'm used to wearing heavier shoes, because to me these are the closest thing to going barefoot that I've ever worn; I swear I have pairs of socks that weigh more than these do. They're ultralight, super-sneaky quiet, and incredibly comfortable. They look great, too. I worried a little bit about the canvas getting dirty, but I've had mine about a month and they still look new.

Very, very snug and I feel like a size up would still be very snug. I go 2 sizes up and these are going to look like baguettes and with the narrow issue still unresolved. I'm sure they're well-made but my foot in this looks like it could've been the model the animators used for Cinderella's dainty lovely foot and that's just not what I'm going for right now.

Arrived well on time. Couldn't believe how light there are yet durable at the same time. Not suitable when it is cold, but indoor places like malls etc are excellent to wear them. Can't wait for the summer.

These are amazing. Fit is true to size. Very comfortable for an everyday shoe. Not sure they have enough support for jogging or fitness. I wanted them more for just weekend shoes to wear with sweats and jeans -- and they are perfect. Also make my feet look smaller which is a good thing.

Great sneaker. I work twelve hour shifts and am on my feet for most of that time. My feet don't hurt when I get home. I can't really comment on the arch support as I did replace the insole with an upgraded insert.

These shoes are superlight weight. I feel like I'm barefoot in these. The front sole is super thin. When jumping or going down stairs, you can feel the impact of the ground on your feet. Not much cushion for the bottom of your feet, but that is what I like about it. The heel has a lot of cushion, just not the front. Similar to wearing flip flop sandals. I would recommend and I would buy another pair.

I love my Saucony. I wear a size 9 and they fit me perfectly. I researched these for about 30 days and found out Zappos had the best price and the service was excellent. Someone that doesn't like to buy online, very happy, I recommend them.

They look pretty decent. I get compliments from friends and coworkers when I wear them. They certainly aren't your typical dowdy vegan shoe. However these are crazy lightweight. I suppose that could be a selling point. But compared to the Onitsuka Tigers which are also very light, these just have zero cushioning. I honestly wear thicker socks when sporting these or else ever bump in the sidewalk is too much. You know those yellow handicap ramps on sidewalk corners? Too painful in these. Oh and I go hiking all the time so I am not some goldilocks tendertoes.

These shoes are awesome. I needed a good casual shoe to wear with jeans. I really liked my old diesels and omit skua tiger shoes but it was time for something new. I cannot imagine finding a better shoe for the price and they look awesome with jeans. Very light and very comfortable. I wear the same size in every shoe. At first I thought these were too small because they fit very tight despite being the correct length. All I did was loosen all of the laces from the front of the shoe to the back, and now they fit very comfortably!

I like the shoe quite a bit and being all canvas they are a little less retro which I was excited about. I read the reviews and they said they run narrow. I wanted them to work out but I have wide feet so they have to go back. Shoot! Cant go a size up because they will be to long. Good style and fitting shoes shirts and pants are so hard to find Lord help me please!! Amen.

I have two boys aged 25 and 18, they find all of their shoes on Zappos and we are amazed at the speed at which they get us the shoes. Their favorite brand is Saucony and there are so many on Zappos site for them to choose from. These Original Bullet Vegan were just what they wanted, the quality great and very comfortable.

Loved the style but hubby didn't feel that there was enough support. Note this is a more narrow fitting shoe. He didn't have a problem with it but compared to the other pair he ordered, he preferred the other item.

I wear these all day at work, walking around lots. They last me for a few months in this situation, no more than 7 months I think is the time-stamp of mine for durability/comfort.

I have absolutely fallen in love with how these shoes fit, and how light they are. I use them to coach Gymnastics. Great mixture of minimalist with enough support for me personally to wear them all day. I've ended up ordering a second pair because I wanted to wear them everywhere, and I need the soles to stay clean for coaching.
