Oh, dear---this isn't the Simple of old. These shoes have no arch and not much cushion. They are wide in a way that can't be remedied, because of the fixed laces. They're cute, and the fabric is tailored and interesting, but comfort shoes they are not.

Cute little shoe I wanted for in-house wear but that strap is a deal-breaker. Velcro, please. Also, tender feet may not like slightly rustic construction. The toe-box tapers at the color change so if you like to wiggle there's not much room. Really wanted them but they struck out.

Very cute! My feet are a little on the wide side so they are kind of hard to get on. Once on, they are very comfortable. Wish the strap was designed different á¹­o make them easier to get on and off. Besides that no complaints!

These shoes run a little small, I would suggest ordering a half size larger than normal.

This shoe seems a full size bigger than what I wear normally.

These are comfy shoes that go with lots of outfits. I wanted something besides boots to wear with skinny jeans in the winter, and with the strap across the top, these somehow look less dorky than wearing socks with ballet flats. I feel spunky in them! They run a little large. The strap is not adjustable and they are a little loose around my narrow feet, but since I plan to keep wearing them with thick socks, it works. My only complaint is that I've been wearing them regularly for 2 weeks and they still smell strongly of rubber.

I'm also delighted that Simple is back in business, and already own two pairs of the Sugar shoes! These "Mary Jane" shoes are cute & feminine, but also very uncomfortable. They're stiff and scratchy, with little to no cushioning or arch support; and they feel short and wide -- an odd fit. If you buy a half-size larger than your usual size, add a cushioned insole, and wear socks to ward off the scratchy canvas, they'll probably be fine, though! ;)

I was so happy to see that Simple brought this style back. This newer model has a cork footbed, which feels very comfortable. I find it has just as much support as the old model (contrary to what some others have said). The first pair I ordered seemed a bit defective so I returned it-- the elastic laces were totally stretched out on one of the shoes. The replacement shoes' laces are intact. This is a totally cute, much more comfortable alternative to Converse. I did not have the problem others noted about the top of the shoe feeling too tight due to the laces. I did feel a little bit of seams and excess inside the shoe near the toe when I don't wear socks, but it really doesn't bother me. It's minor and after a few minutes I desensitized to it. The beige, textured color is unique and fun.

Really comfortable. Lots of toe room. The whole shoe is pretty roomy; but, because of the strap, it doesn't slide around. It's like wearing a warm sandal.

Bought a pair in April that fell apart by October. The upper has separated from the sole in two or three places on each shoe, and the sole has come apart at the heel on both. At least they looked good for a couple months.

Very stylish and comfortable sneaker. I usually wear a 7 1/2, I had to exchange them for a size 8. The 7 1/2 was too narrow, it squeezed the sides of my feet so socks definitely wouldn't be an option. The size 8 is definitely more comfortable however, it feels just slightly too wide and I feel the shoe overall looks too large on my foot. I have high arches and these provide enough support to wear for an entire day. I've received compliments on them every time I wear them. I've ordered two colors. Love the Simple brand.

So happy to see Simple back in business. My old pair are several years old and are ready to retire. These shoes are very comfortable and just a little too wide. My heel slides out of the back a little but not in a problematic way. They are a perfect fall or winter shoe for Florida.

Love this shoe. Comfortable and stylish. Doesn't have the support of the old Simples, but I still like it. I bought a black pair. Only complaint is that the black bled onto the white canvas sole and its now pinkish. Not sure what that's about.

I like these shoes, nice style and a comfortable footbed. However, the back of the shoe is strangely low, and so my heel feels like it's going to come out of the shoe with every step I take. Too bad, had to send them back.

I've been hunting for a pair of cute, grey sneakers for the fall. These ended up being the winner! I will say that I was surprised that the laces were elastic (read the details, people), which I wasn't thrilled about at first, but I've gotten used to them. They look easy to cut out, if you really really want to put in regular laces. I have narrow feet, and I thought these felt tight the first few times I wore them, but they loosened up eventually. I will also say that these might not be the shoes for you if you like lots of wiggle room for your toes - the rubber at the front prevents that. The squishy cork footbed was a must-have, since I live in a city and walk everywhere. All in all, not the best shoes I could have imagined, but were the closest that I've found.

I have loved the Simple brand for years and was very happy and excited to find them on Zappos.com again. Alas they aren't what they used to be. The memory foam insoles sounded like a great addition but they squeaked for months and started to shred at the edges after only about a month. I have only had them since the middle of June and already they are worn out. My old ones had way more mileage on them and although there is a wear spot through the outer rubber under the ball of my foot there is no hole on the old ones. This pair I haven't even had 6 months and there's a hole worn in the bottom of the right shoe a one soon to be in the left. Very disappointed in the quality. I don't spend money lightly and $45 for sneakers is a lot. I spent the money because the fit and quality were there with this brand but not anymore. I don't think I will buy another pair of Simple sneakers and that is a real shame. Just sad.

Firstly, I loved Simple shoes years ago. I have owned several pairs that I wore daily for at least a year per pair. Which brings me to this shoe. I love the look and style of this shoe, but the fit is just not right. I usually wear a size 10.5, but I had to return and exchange a couple times. I ended up with a size 9.5, which is STILL too long, and it's so narrow and tight now that I cannot wear this shoe. I do have wide feet, but it's not usually too big of an issue..this shoe hurts to wear, let alone walk in. It was also very stiff overall. I'm sure with some wear it would be fine, but I cannot wear this shoe because it is so uncomfortable.
