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.

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.

Wow these reviews are really all over the place, ha ha ha! I had to try 3 different sizes because I saw so many reviews saying these run small. From now on I will trust the majority, for I found these to be true to size. I'm normally a size and 9, and 9 fits me perfectly and looks awesome, with and without (thin) socks. FYI the toe box is uncomfortable because it's tapered, which is not how normal toes are made. Your big toe or little toe will contact the side unless you go a size larger. But if you do, then the shoe is longer and not very attractive, it's a tradeoff. I think these are true to size for people with narrow feet. Also, I think the heel is shorter than usual, in order to look more feminine, so your heel may pop out if you put inserts or wear thick socks. They're not suitable for rough all-day wear in my opinion (I think I'll invest in the Ugg Evera for that). A reviewer mentioned how there is some edge inside that irritated the top of her foot, you can remedy that by adjusting the tongue. I really love the look of these shoes, a femmy Converse, that has only 4 lace holes! But personally I don't like the knotted lace end, so I tuck mine inside to look clean. I also intend to wear these without laces sometimes for a different look. I hope my review helps some! Zappos is fantastic and all you lovely ladies are supremely wonderful. Have a great day. :)

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.

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!

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 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!

The "regular" Chuck slip ons (without the laces) run about a half-size too big for me when I convert from the guy sizes they come in. I always get the size 6, which is a ladies size 8 even though I'm an 8 1/2 - 9, right? Regular-narrow width. Whatever -- they're always just a little snug starting out but quickly break in. These "shoreline" slip-ons, though, seem to run true to size: 8 1/2 works fine for me. Now that the boring fit stuff is outta the way... Love the vestigial laces! Love the grippy backs. Love how this shorter version looks more feminine with dresses but still has the Converse edge. Plus, this style makes your feet look smaller! When I bought this sneaker, Zappos was selling it in a million different versions which took me forever to decide... now not so many choices, I see. Oh well, be advised, though, if you don't see what you like here, Converse makes other options. You're sure to find 'em with nominal research.

I love these shoes! I have owned many pair of Chucks, but I think the slip ons are a new favorite. I bought mine a half size down. They were snug initially (without socks) and did pinch my toes a bit. After wearing them in a bit my toes are no longer getting pinched and they have seemed to stretch a bit.

Adorable shoe but ridiculously narrow at the toes. I usually order narrow in shoes, but had to return these because they were super tight at the toes. No amount of loosening the laces can help this issue.

Love these shoes! I have a small narrow foot and normally wear a size 6. After reading reviews I sized down to 5.5 and they fit perfect! If you have a wide foot, these are probably not for you. Not a huge fan of the other styles, but these are too cute! Will definitely add more colors to my collection!

I bought these for my daughter and she loved them from the time she put them on. They are very comfortable, stylish and go with all sorts of jeans, shorts or dresses. She said they made her feet look smaller. I know that was important even though she does not have large feet. Anyone 17 and up will love these shoes. Anyone younger might think their feet look too large.

How could you not love low-profile, slip-on Chucks? What you have tried to do for years by knotting the tips of your laces actually works now due to elastic heel. These are great option to have.

I've tried several converse type shoes before this one, and all of them rubbed my heel uncomfortably. These did not. They are a great fit and true to size. I do find that my feet sweat in these shoes mush more than in regular shoes. I wear no-show shocks with them to protect my feet from blisters and the shoes from my sweaty feet.

I have been a converse lover since high school-which was many, many years ago. I want to throw all my old converse out and replace them with these new slip ons! Traditional converse can make your feet look long and a little clownish. These slip ons only have 4 shoe lace holes which makes your foot normal length. I had to stretch the elastic on the tongue a little due to my high arch. They are a little stiff but, I know after time they will conform to my foot. I will be buying another pair soon!

These Converse shoes are so cute...with only 4 grommets your foot does not look so long as it does it the original Chucks. I love them, but think they may take a while to break in as the elastic portions are very tight across the top of my foot and the heel, and cause some discomfort after a while of wearing. Overall this is a very stylish casual shoe that I will wear for a long time...just hope they stretch out a bit soon. I ordered my regular size of 8.5 but had to return for the 8s... However Zappos customer VIP service is awesome! I paid no shipping for overnight delivery...I had the first pair overnight and the second pair overnight as well, before I even returned the wrong size to my UPS store! Thank you Zappos.
