To call these shoes the greatest invention in the history of the universe does not do justice to their wonder. Thanks to my mother, who despite being a mere 5'3" tall has rather sizeable feet, I was born with the family curse of larger than necessary feet. Many a time I see a pair of shoes that I adore but, upon requesting them in my size, recoil in disgust at the gargantuan monster that lay before me. That was of course until I met the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Shoreline Slip-On Ox. Upon first glance, I was intrigued by their cuteness but I feared that, like most Converses, they would do all they could to accentuate the size of my size 10s. Then I noticed something intriguing, rather than the usual set of six grommets, these little guys only featured four. I was curious to see if this would make a difference and decided to take a chance. When they arrived I, like Cinderella, presented my out-stretched foot and hoped that this would be the fit I had always dreamed of. Anxiously and cautiously, I placed my size 10s into the shoes and then nervously walked to my full-length mirror. Before me I saw a miracle, not only were they as adorable as I had hoped but rather than seeing feet which looked larger, or even normal size, I saw what appeared to be smaller feet. What I had waited for all my life was currently upon my person and I could not believe my good fortune. They are cute with capris, cute with shorts, cute with dresses. These shoes are perfection. These shoes are magical. These shoes are the greatest invention in the history of the universe.

My daughter immediately complained that the heels slip right off when she walks, and the vestigial shoelaces can't be used to make the shoes fit better because they're too short to even tie shut at all.

They are super cute but definitely not comfortable. I wanted these as my everyday shoe running around with shorts, jeans, skirts. Ugh. Bummer! I have to wear a bandaid in one toe in order to wear them. But they are cute!

Love these shoes! I was debating between these and the original All Stars, and I am glad to try these this time. They will go perfectly with rolled-up jeans, shorts and dresses/skirts. Like all Converse, they run long (and narrow), so I would order a size down. I did have to break them in.

These are adorable shoes...and are surprisingly very comfortable. I was skeptical of how they would feel on and if they would slip because of the stretchy back heel, but they fit snug, yet give enough to provide comfort (and won't require the usual breaking in process that canvas shoes like this need). The soft grey is an perfect color that goes with anything. I bought them for when the weather warms up to go with shorts, skirts, and long pants and no socks. They will be perfect. Also, because of the the way the laces start lower and you don't tie them up high, they look less like a clunky sneaker and more dainty so you can wear them easily with skirts. They definitely run large. I usually wear a 6.5 in sandals, flats, heels and a 7-7.5 in running shoes. I ordered a 6 (because they were out of stock on 6.5) and glad that I did. They fit perfect and I can tell after wear, they will give a lot more. A 6.5 would have been too large.

I love my Chucks! I get complements on these everywhere I go. Living in SoCal I wear flip flops everywhere year round. Not a fan of shoes I have to wear socks with. But at this time of year we do get rain & I need closed toe something. These are perfect; were socks or not. Casual but not a clunky athletic shoe. They are very comfortable and can handle all day shopping or amusement park. Zappos is the only place I've found them and I plan on getting additional pairs as soon as other colors are back in stock. Thank you Zappos! You have the best customer service & logistics all year long not just at Christmas.

These Chucks are so cute! I usually wear 7.5 or 8 in shoes and ordered both size 7 and 7.5. Both seemed to fit well, however, I am keeping the 7's as I know the canvas will stretch a bit.

This shoe is awesome! Bought them for back to school in September, the shipping was super fast, got them in 3 days with the Standard. I've heard the shoe is large, but it was perfect for me, a size 8. I didn't go down based on reviews, because Zappos has free returns anyway, with no worries. Wore them for the first time yesterday, and I got a lot of compliments and looks! The best thing is that you don't have to tie these, you just slip them on.

I had read several reviews that suggested selecting a half-size smaller than your normal size, so I did, and they fit perfectly. There's one area on the inner ankles which rubs a bit, and will require a bit of "breaking in" so as not to form blisters since I'm wearing these without socks, but overall, these are very comfortable fun and casual run-about-town or boating shoes.

Overall, these are great shoes...love the classic Chuck Taylor All Star styling but the shoreline slip-on ox has a more feminine look. Love the slip-on feature with the laces. I got these in light gray and they go with everything - can't wait to wear them this summer! Felt true to size and comfortable sole. My only complaint is that the toe box area is really narrow and these shoes pinch in on my pinky toes...not too bad at first, but you really notice it after wearing them for a couple of hours. If you consider your feet wide, these might not work for you. Other than that, this is a cute shoe with lots of possibilities!

Finally, a really comfortable pair of Converses! I love the elastic back on them, much more comfortable than traditional Converses. I agree that these run a 1/2 size big. I was able to get into a size 9.5 w/my larger foot that measures 10.25 (if it were a size) w/thin socks on. I decided (since I didn't know if these would stretch out much over time) to stick with my usual size 10. I can wear them with regular socks if I choose too or I have a bit of room when I wear them without socks, but not bothersome. I got the grey and it's a perfect summer color! I love the 'slip-on' look with the laces as they are & the elastic heel. I took off a star for comfort because I'm finding that as I get older (33) I prefer some arch support and also these don't come up very high on the back of my heel & the heel of the shoe slips down just a tad so I can feel it folded under my foot... but not too much of a bother either. I still enjoy them enough that I think I'll get another color... =)

I've never been a big fan of Converse, but when I saw these, I decided to give them another try. I love that these have 4 grommets vs the std 6. I've always felt that with 6, the tongue was a little too high up on the top of my foot. I have small feet and 6 grommets made them look very long (I can only imagine how ladies with bigger feet felt). I also love the elastic in the heel, as it provides a better fit. I read the reviews before I ordered and went down half a size. I normally wear a 6.5 and ordered a 6. It fits perfectly with room in the toe box - I know that I won't have sore big toes after wearing these out all night. They are a little narrow, but nothing that won't stretch out after a few wears.

I normally in chucks I wear an 8 . . . but I read the reviews about this particular shoe and everybody suggested to go half a size down, so I got a 7.5 However, they fit VERY tight, so I will have to order my regular size in 8. Love the look of the black and purple. :)

I think these are great looking and I love Converse but these just did not work. I was disappointed in the fit. I usually wear an 8½ in Converse and these fit but the backs kept slipping off. I guess it goes with the name but I mean the backs just kept slipping off. Hence the name. But I did not want Converse slippers! I sent them back and got the Converse Dainty Ox and love them. They have a slimmer look but still provide the classic Converse look and feel.

Second attempt at this shoe in a different size. The elastic around on top of foot is so tight, really hurts, the back slips off and again - the stitching on the inside corners of the shoe - where the tongue meets - it very sharp and rubs against foot. This style did not work at all for me!

I absolutely love the way these shoes look and fit until I took my first few steps. The strechy back (which is why I decided on these) does not stay up on my heel and I end up walking on the back after 5-10 steps. I am super disappointed!

Love these! They look cute when I wear jeggings, workout pants, dresses etc. I highly recommend these I wear a 8.5 and got an 8.5 they fit fine, I did get blister on pinky toe, but just stretching these out. I wore the ballet flat socks with these because regular ankle socks didn't look well!

I wear a size 9, regular width, in Asics running shoes, so I bought 9 in these, too. They fit perfectly! I used to wear Converse One-Stars as a teenager (I am 33), and I decided to look at the current styles. I have big feet (Size 9), and I have never liked the way the All-Stars look - they make your big feet look bigger... like clown shoes! Enter these shoes. There are four lace holes - not six. They look and feel awesome. I want them in every color. I currently just have the dark grey. The sole is heavy, as Converse is known for, but the canvas material is light and airy. I wore them my first time without socks out and about for five hours or so. I felt comfortable the whole time and I think that they would hold up during an all-day summer excursion, like to an amusement park. They are true to size and do not feel like they will fall off, like some slip-ons do.

I love that you can just slip on and go. Great for summer, socks or no socks it all works. Put in washing machine and cleans up great. Width is snug at first but they will stretch. This will be my 3rd pair, they have been hard to find in the colors and size I need so grab them when you find your size and color.

I just got these in mail and I love them. My foot size runs b/t a 6.5/7. I originally ordered 7 and had to send back but 6.5 works perfect. I would say they run a little big and with these shoes if they are too big they look like clown shoes.

I love these shoes. I will definitely be buying them in more colors! I ordered the size 7 since I am a size 5 in normal Converse and when I first put them on they felt a bit clunky and I thought they might be too big. I wore them around the house and decided against returning for a 6½, but I was tempted based on the other reviews saying they had to go down in size. I have worn them three full days since my purchase and they are still making my feet a bit sore (particularly my right pinky toe and the top of my foot near the tongue), but I experienced the same thing with my original pair of Converse before they were broken in so I am expecting that to fade soon.
