I've been wearing monochrome lowtop Converse for many years. I recently wore a hole through the soles on my most recent pair before this one so I needed a new pair. I saw that these have a removeable insole and a thicker sole so I thought I'd give these a try.These are very squishy and comfortable to walk in. My normal size in Converse is either 8.5 or 9 in women's and 9 in athletic sneakers like New Balance. I ordered these in a 9 because the 8.5s were out of stock, but I'm glad I did! The 9s fit just about perfect and I think the 8.5s would have been a bit tight. I do prefer to have a bit of wiggle room in my shoes, so if you like to wear your shoes on the tighter side you might want to size down half a size, but if you like them a little looser you will probably want to order your normal size. These seem to be well made like other Converse and should last for a while.

Really nice shoes. Wide tongue, loads of padding in the right spots. I wanted some durable mids for hoofing it around the city and adult enough for restaurants and museums. The bordeaux red come with red and white laces and are tastetfully monochromatic. I typically wear an 11 US or 44 EU. These shoes in size 11 are a 1/2 size too long for me, but the width is OK. I'm considering returning them and trying a 10 1/2. These look a bit like Puma suede, but aren't as narrow.

I bought these in black and white. Love the look and very confutable. Because these are unisex, they run about 1 to 1/2 size to large. I had to return mine and go down a size. I am a size 9 M

I like the style, but the comfort is lacking. The insoles are not the Converse Lunarlon, they are a slim insole with very little support. I took the Lunarlon insoles from my old Cons and put them in the Purcell’s and now they’re perfect.

I love this shoe- it has the classic styling of the jack Purcell with the added durability of a suede upper and increased comfort with an upgraded insole.

They're cute and the sole is adequately padded, but I had to return them due to them being too narrow for my wide feet. Length was just right, I sized down a 1/2 size as other reviewers suggested.

I'm a huge fan of Jack Purcell sneakers but these are not like the others. The soles are not nearly as soft or comfy. The big issue was that the back of the shoe kept rubbing against my ankle and at the end of the day they made my ankle bleed. I was super bummed because I love the look of these. They are a cool looking suede and I love how the white stitching looks on the black sneaker. I'm going to try arch supports or thick insoles and see if that makes a difference. Zappos customer service was amazing and credited me the sneakers. Since I already wore them, they can't take them back so said to just try and make it work or donate them. I love Zappos.

The newer One Stars are good. Converse fixed the sizing on the new ones. In the older One Stars I would wear a 7.5 and I wear an 8 in these. They also got rid of the sockliner that was the thing that was attatched to the tounge, now there is just the standard tounge straps. They also switched the Lunarlon insole for the Nike Zoom Air insole. The Zoom Air insole comes with a air bag in the heel and the rest of the insole is made up of an ortholite material. The right shoe fits weird but that may just be the pair that I got.

Love these. As someone else said, I've been wearing Chucks for decades. And with those decades came getting older. And with getting older mean things hurt that didn't used to. You kids will find out eventually! But I couldn't let go of my Chucks. So I am SO glad I found these. The Lunar soles give great padding and DECENT arch support. Not great - and I'm not THAT old - but far better than your standard Chucks. Padding around the ankle is nice, too. I DID go up half a size as several said but I personally don't think it was necessary. They're fine but I'm pretty sure I'd be ok with my normal size so next time I'll go with that. Overall though, if you're an aging punk rocker that absolutely has to have Chucks but don't like the sore feet and back pain ... check these out.

The sizing on these is way off. I had to go down a whole size for these to fit. I'm usually a 7.5 in Converse but had to go down to the 6.5 in these. But once I found my size they are great. The insert makes all the difference.

I've worn one stars forever so I had to get these. My last pair was the canvas Target one stars - they actually lasted quite awhile and they were only $20! anyway, these took a LONG time to break in! Now, I love them. I agree with the other reviews concerning the back of the shoe rubbing your heel and tendon at just the wrong place. I spent A LOT of time lacing and re-lacing these to make the fit right. Took months and tons of trial and error but, now I have no problems. They look great! I wear them all the time now. My teen aged daughter thinks they look cool......that's worth $70 right there!

I was so excited to get these but very disappointed I don’t know what’s happening with converse... very lightweight ordered a men’s 5 which would be a woman 7 they were too small. very narrow I don’t even see how a man could wear these. The concept is great all suede with the star. They are just poorly made, the soul is very thin. Overall they’re just not made well at all. I thought putting an insole would help it didn’t they just look inexpensive and feel that way too :(
