I ordered these for my son. He liked them but we have to exchange for a size bigger than he usually wears so they definitely run small.

This is a nice looking shoe. But my son is a skater, and these shoes were completely destroyed in 2-3 weeks. I'm not sure if I blame the shoes or the skateboarding! He has wide feet, and he did find them comfy.

The absolutely coolest shoes I have ver owned. They go perfect with my matching Robert Graham shirt and with super slim White Lucky Brand jeans. I ordered these at about 10 pm and within 24 hours , they were at my doorstep. Zappos rules.

This model of Globe Motley is kind of a hybrid between dress shoe and skater shoe. Overall it is very comfortable and stylish, and will pretty much go with any outfit you wear. I usually wear a size 13, but the size 14 fits me perfectly. Order half a size up from your normal shoe size.

Get a half size bigger. These are tight! These feel a little funny when you walk, but an overall good buy.

Excellent, low-key style, as always from Globe. I kind of wish they were made a little more precisely (the glue peeks out in a few places where the sole meets the upper), and there are some wrinkly spots around there, too. But at this price, I am not complaining too loudly.

Small and tight. First pair had to be returned for a half size up, which is highly unusual for me. Also feel quite tight on my extremely narrow feet. That said, they look pretty good and feel alright, so I'll keep 'em. A general complaint I have about shoes these days is the serious lack of quality. At least Zappos service continues to be stupendous!

These shoes are really good. The comfort is great; the design is great. The only downside is that if you're going to get them for athletic purposes, don't. They do hurt the tendon just above your heel and ankle, but other than that, a great shoe.

I love the comfort but the soles wore out in less than 2 months of wearing them. I can see through to the cloth. Weak sauce!

I also ordered a 1/2 size up, and I couldn't even get my foot in these things. They're super tight at the base of the tongue making it nearly impossible to get it on. Sucks, they're pretty sweet shoes.

These shoes look great, but they're not made very well. The soles are thin to the point of being flimsy and the top two eyelets on the left shoe come out of the holes and slide around on the laces. For the sale price that I paid for them they're good enough. I'd be pissed if I paid full price.

The Globe Motley is a comfortable shoe with good fit to size in length and width. Great shoe to wear except the only problem I had was the rubber sole was not glued on and kept coming apart.

If your looking for a simple skate shoes the motley is a good and cheap find. Personaly these shoes are a little narrow for my foot but they seem to be breaking in and getting a lil wider as well as more comfortable. Overall, a good thin skate shoe allows you to feel the board and still let your feet be flexible enough to feel comfortable skating some harsh inverts!

The soles of these shoes are paper thin. Regular normal use, not abuse, and the soles will be tearing through in a span of three months or less. I know this from my experience and purchase. Buy a better brand.

When I know shoes that fit are going to be limited, I buy two... I definitely had to buy two pairs of these. They are extremely stylish and surprisingly comfortable, I wasn't expecting that from a seemingly flat shoe. I had to pay attention to the comments that said to buy a half size larger - lucky for me, my size is out of stock so I had no choice anyway. It was the right decision, they are nice and snug. I've noticed some people said they don't last long, which is another reason I bought a second pair. Comfort and style rarely come at a good price these days, even if it they do decide to wear prematurely. I'm happy with it.

Are true to size but require that you wear them in. Are comfortable and well made. I have bought this same shoe (Globe Motley) in different colors. Definitely my favorite everyday shoe.

I bought these as a cheap pair of shoes to lift weights in. So I only wear them one day a week to the gym for leg day. For the past 5 years I've been wearing minimal shoes so I'm not sure I'm the best person to ask, but I can say that if it came down to these or Chucks, I'd buy these again. They have a little more support than Chucks and these were cheaper without feeling like a cheap shoe.

I love them! They are super comfortable and exactly the style that I was looking for. I have only been wearing them for about a month now, but they seem to be high quality. I should probably note that that I am pretty flat-footed, so the relatively low arch support is exactly what I needed.

While I haven't skated in over 10 years, I still swear by globes for my casual shoes. By far the most comfortable shoes I've owned and they're built to last. I'm a standard 12.5, but always size up to the 13 in Globes, always fit great.

Really cool. The only thing I don't like is the bright white laces. Luckily I had a pair of tan laces that came as extra with a pair of dress shoes and I swapped them out and now these things are perfect. Can be worn in casual or moderately dressy situations.

According to my brother for whom I bought these shoes, the sole in these shoes are hands-down the best vulcanized rubber he has ever tried. He owns various pairs of Globe Motley, but they are midtop. So far he is very satisfied with the product. Oh, and Zappos has the best customer service!
