I was heartbroken when Simple sneakers were no longer available. When I saw they had returned, I immediately bought 2 pair. Just like with my previous pairs, the quality is great. They are naturally wider than more sneakers, especially in the toe box. I love them!

I like this item, but don't love it. It is moderately comfortable and can receive an orthotic insert. It is more gray/taupe than brown but works well as a neutral shoe. I tried on the keen canvas mary jane and it was soooo much more comfortable. However, this is half the cost so I was hoping to like it almost as well.

Simple shoes are back! These shoes look great with jeans or khakis, fit exactly as expected, and are just as comfortable to wear as Simples always were.

Wow! These shoes are very nice shoes that run a full size larger! They feel like old beat up house slippers they are so loose! Shame that they are so well made, look so nice, and fit so...badly.

I was looking to replace a pair of Simple shoes from about 5 years ago that I wore to death and was so happy to see the shoes were back! While these don't quite have the squish factor of my older Simples they are extremely comfortable. I wore them on a three-mile walk right out of the box and my feet were completely comfy. That's a sign of a good shoe! I should note I have flat feet and am a sucker for comfort over style. These are both stylish and comfortable. I will say to take note of the laces before you order. They are fixed and are meant to be slightly lose so it's easy to slide the shoes off/on. All in all, I love these shoes!

I had a pair of Simple sneakers that I completely wore out so it was obvious that I would get another pair. Design is cute with the old school style I like. Not a huge fan of the elastic laces. They did not make it easier to slip on and off. My pair of white shoes get here with pink markings all over them. Looked like whoever assembled them needed help keeping their stitch lines straight. Did not meet the quality I expected. Sadly they are being returned.

These shoes look great and feel great, especially with an improved inner sole. One warning: They run big. I suggest ordering a full size smaller than you wear in other shoes.

So stinking excited Simple is back! They are very similar to the old tried and true Simples of yesteryear. I really like the memory foam insoles. They are mitre comfortable and supportive than I thought they would be. Fantastic styling. I've received quite a few compliments from friends and acquaintances already in the few weeks I've had them. They look great!

The only reason I rated 4 stars instead of 5 is because the color of the "black stone wash" barely passes for "black" in my opinion; the color is more like a purple/grey with brown trim. The color is pretty; it's just not a classic black that would match more than this. The shoes fit perfectly right out of the box. No break in time at all for me which was a huge plus. Very comfortable footbed with good arch support. All the comfort of a sneaker with the cutesy touch of a mary jane. Welcome back, Simple Shoes! Let's see this style in some more color options; it's a winner!

My size is 8.5, but for this shoe I would have to go down a half size because it runs bigger due to the wider toe box. The shoe has a relaxed fit (reminded me of the "relaxed fit" Skechers) so if you have narrow/slender feet a half size may fit better. With that said, I returned the shoes because I felt that the quality was substandard there was little to no arch support overall it didn't feel sturdy, to bad because I liked the style of the shoe. In my opinion they are not worth the price. You can get better quality shoes on Zappos for less than this price.

Great shoes. Breathable and comfortable. Padded in heel and accommodate my toes which usually have trouble in a lot of shoes.

I had a pair of simple shoes I wore on my first trip to France. I loved them and walked roughly 8 miles in them daily. Bought another pair a few years later similar to this style that I wore while living in Paris, i.e. lots of walking. These are nothing like the comfort of my previous pairs. I love this brand, I really do, but this pair was stiff and flat. There is a lot of extra cushioning that doesn't extend to the ball of the foot. My feet made slapping sounds and I had discomfort in my forefoot trying them on. Better than Converse but I'll keep watching for different styles by Simple. I am returning these.

These are stiff shoes that felt scratchy. These really feel like they would bring up some heel blisters. It has been a while since I had a pair of Simple shoes, but these are not as comfortable as I remember. Styling is kind of meh.

Great shoe for those looking for something like a Chuck Taylor but for wider (ie normal) feet and with modern styling. Laces feel a bit cheap and upper material is thin to the extent that I can feel one of the eyelets pressing on the top of my foot (better if I tie loosely); also the memory foam footbed is kind of thin and warm. That all said you can't beat the price, so try it out. Loved this brand back in the day and hope the new owners get a chance to do it proud again.

Snapped these up when I saw Simple had come back. They seem well made and have a nice cushioned sole. I was afraid the Mary Jane style would look frumpy but they are cute. It might be better if the strap attached with velcro, the elastic might stretch out over time. Hoping to see more colors and more Simple styles. Great Zappos service, as usual.

Woooot! Simple Shoes are back in business (I've missed them!) These are super cute kicks - slide on, cushy, not quite sneakers... count as work shoes in Cali.

I am deliriously happy that Simple is making shoes again since I've worn out the other two pairs that I own! By far the best elastic tie shoes around. Biggest difference is the cork covered insole which need a bit of padding so I added a thin insole. Also, the canvass uppers are a bit stiff to start out but doesn't take long to break them in. I bought both the charcoal and natural colors and love them both!

These are really comfortable and have great arch support. I have really high arches and almost always need to add an insert but I don't with these. And they're super cute.

Simple is back and better than ever with a comfortable insole and some slight style adjustments. Same great casual shoe and same reasonable price. Love 'em.

Love these shoes!! I've been a Simple fan for years. I'm so glad that they're back making shoes again! Love the cork footbed. Forms to your feet and helps feet stay cool. Ran true to size. Love the elastic laces. Just slip on and go. Have them in grey too. Wish they would come out with navy color. Comfortable and very light weight with slight arch support

Perfect. I have a narrow foot, and they aren't too wide. The shoes are comfortable and required no break in time. The cork insole is a nice plus when wearing shoes without socks. To top everything off, they are very cute.
