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.

Brands I'd also recommend: Sketchers Memory Foam (BOBS), Harley Davidson Boots, Sanuk Flip Flops

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!

Dear Person Who Decided that Chuck Taylors Would Benefit From Being Slip-Ons... I love you. Thank you. These. Shoes Rock. Although slip ons, I skate and bicycle in them all over town. Plenty of grip, but with the chilled out nature of a slip on. So pleased. Thank you, Zappos!

Love, love, love these shoes! I own them in 4 different colors and would buy more if there were more colors available. There isn't any arch support but I wear arch inserts so I prefer my shoes not to have any arches built in. They are cute, comfortable and easy to slip on and off for a busy mom of 4. I highly recommend them.

This shoe is super comfy when I wear it with no-show socks. It doesn't look bulky on my foot like other Chucks do. It's girly and it fits true to size. I wear an 8.5 and that's what I ordered. I highly recommend this shoe to anyone who is looking for a casual sneaker you can wear with shorts, jeans or a dress! They're so cute! I love them!!

Love these shoes! But be aware when you first purchase them they will be tight in the heel and around your little toes! I ordered my usual size 7 and they fit perfect in the length, however were very snug around my ankle and little toes. So much so that my left heel got blisters and it rubbed my toes. After wearing these shoes daily for a couple days though they broke in and are so comfy now that they've stretched! I love that they don't have laces making them look a little more "neat". Highly recommend once you get past the break in period, just be sure to give them a chance if they are uncomfortable at first!

These shoes are so cute to wear with ankle jeans, casual dresses, and shorts. They are super comfortable. I do wish I had ordered a half size smaller due to the elastic heel which stretches, but the size was out of stock.

I love these shoes-I ordered them in an 8 just because I tend to be between sizes sometimes, but I had to return them for a 7 1/2 because they seemed to run bigger. They don't have a ton of support, but they also don't hurt my feet. My biggest complaint is that the elastic that runs across the top (because they are slip ons) does bug me after I've worn then ALL day. Otherwise, I Iove these shoes! They look great and I actually like the 4 shoelace holes over the 6. II plan to buy them in some of the other colors too!

LOVE these shoes. These are my first pair of Converse and I'm obsessed. I am short and have small feet, so I was really excited to see they had a more feminine pair of these type. They are very comfortable and go with anything. I wish they didn't have the elastic backs to them, but they're worth it to have the shorter fronts!!
