Although I really liked these shoes, my feet are difficult to find appropriate and comfortable shoes. I've had foot surgery that has now resulted in more challenging options for my shoe choices. The fit was fine; I just started to experience some discomfort on areas of my feet which typically present challenges. Wish I could have kept them. They are lightweight, attractive, and appear to be practical.

I’m actually extremely upset w these sneakers. They are a light color so you will expect them to get dirty but after washing mine they now have some bright pink streaks, along with that after every workout with a plank the front part where your toes are is very dirty. For a sneaker that’s so $$$ I honestly expected more and I’m upset I spent my money on these

Received my order yesterday (thanks, Zappos! Your speedy shipping is amazing!) So I am trying them on & debating about keeping/returning. They are SO comfy! Really look attractive! But, they feel a little loose compared to my normal shoe size 10.5. I think I could get used to them:) Also, I ordered them for traveling & my feet sometimes swell & so the little bit of room would be helpful. These shoes are the most attractive casual shoe that I own! Simply beautiful:) and yes, even with a size 10.5 shoe, I look darling...I’m sure;) I’m a middle aged (55) women & am on my feet quite a lot, also have had a few foot/toe surgeries. My feet are very happy in these! Thanks, once again...for having the best customer service in the whole world!!

Love the fit and I get compliments all the time. My only complaint is that the tongue is too long it rubbed on the front of my ankle when I first put them on. Now they feel great! I would highly recommend them.

Ordered half a size up for my mother since I had already bought the same for myself. She has a lot of problems with her feet and walking in general. I told her to buy these based on my amazing experience with them. She absolutely loves them and gets compliments wherever she goes! These are so lightweight and really are much better than Nike. Only Black Friday purchase that we actually kept!!

Loved the look of this shoe. Felt true to size, but the fabric is not as stiff as other slip ones I’ve tried and my foot felt like it was coming out of the shoe just walking. I like my shoes to be a little more functional for the gym and not just a casual shoe. They’re also super lightweight, which I love.. but ended up going with the Nike free run flyknit 2018 in all white for that minimalist look.

Felt like it ran a little big, my only negative callout would be that the shoe laces are very long.

Love the style and lightweight feel, but these run much larger than my ordinary sneakers. Hoping there is a pair in a smaller size so I can exchange.

Previously bought another style of APL (Techloom Pro) size 9 which was a little small so bought 9-1/2 which work well for me with one type of elliptical. However, these shoes appear to be a full size too large (even with thick compression socks on) as if sized for dress shoes. I think they might be very comfortable but hard to tell when your feet are swimming in them. And I agree with another reviewer: these are absolutely NOT running shoes. Not sure I would even risk them on an elliptical trainer. I intended them for work/casual wear and I plan to take advantage of Zappos' very generous return process and try 8-1/2 (and 9?). At the head-spinning price of $200/pair, they are going to have to fit perfectly to be kept.

Super lightweight and a soft material, so it feels like you're wearing a sock almost. It fits pretty true to size, potentially a tiny bit big (I go between a 5.5 and 6 and went with the smaller size - a 6 would have been slightly too big for me). Super stylish, especially with the laces tucked in for a slide on type of look. They're sleek sneakers and can be worn with jeans. I probably wouldn't wear them for a run, but they're great for walking around, general gym-going sneakers.

I think most of the reviews on these shoes are too low, personally. I don't seem to have the same problems as some other people. I ordered a size 7, which is my standard size, and they fit almost perfectly. I have a very narrow foot, so I often feel like shoes have to be too short for my length to accommodate for how narrow my foot is or too wide to accommodate for how long my foot is. It's a real pain. These however, address both issues in a size 7 better than any other athletic sneakers I've ever owned. They are very comfortable to me, even after hours of wear. They have not rubbed any blisters, even right out of the box. I wear Converse no show socks with them. The only thing I will say is that I'm not a runner, so I have not run a mile in them or anything. They are very lightweight in contrast to my Nikes that got uncomfortable after hours of wear due to their being bulky, heavy and too tight in length to make up for how wide they were. Also, they are super easy to slip on and off without untying the laces. I have no trouble getting my feet in these. In fact they are the easiest sneakers to slip on and off that I've ever worn. I did not like the shoelaces being underneath the tongue, so I just pulled them through the top like normal sneakers. It was no problem. My only reason to give 4 stars is that while they are nice looking, sleek shoes and much cuter than tons of other sneakers out there, they aren't $165 cute. However, I don't think I've seen a sneaker out there that's $165 cute that actually costs $165. Those sneakers cost over $200. In other words, I feel like they're all overpriced.

These shoes have a very nice feel on the top with very unique stretchable, breathable material. The sole on the other hand is cheap and hard. It would not take a lot of effort to obtain a comfortable sole like Addis but for some reason thats not what they have done. I am returning these shoes and expect a lot better quality for $220 !!!

Loved the look of this shoe, but found it to be pretty uncomfortable with NO arch support. I have high arches, so I need at least some arch support.

I have been looking for a light weight black slip on sneaker for traveling. I really liked the weight and the look of this sneaker right out of the box. Unfortunately, the fit did not work for me. I am a 9 or 9.5 and I ordered the 9.5. The length was perfect but the width in both the toe box and heel were off for me. My foot was sliding around in it. I am on the slightly narrow side of medium and usually don't have a problem with medium widths but perhaps that is the issue with this shoe. Am returning for that reason. Thank you Zappos for your fast delivery and awesome return policy. Will keep looking.

I just purchased this slip on after lots of guilt. It is so expensive but had to give it a try. I ordered 1/2 size up from my normal size 9 (9.5) and it is a great fit. I will say this is such a "beautiful" shoe (I picked the pink, speckle sole, sea salt color) but I would never even think to run in it.. I cannot imagine it being used for that because of ascetics and it feels like a casual or walking shoe. This is why the guilt. Not multi-purpose but sooooo worth it if the quality holds up and it lasts long time. I may use it for gym classes as time goes on and they get some wear, but for now casual.. even work. Still feel guilty though! :o)

I usually wear a 9.5 in shoes and buy a 10.5 in athletic shoes. I purchased a size 10. The shoes are cute and comfortable. However, I've only had them for a 2 months. I wouldn't say that I wear the shoes excessively. The soles of the shoes are already worn through in parts. I usually buy a 2-3 athletic shoes a year, so it's not a big deal, but these shoes did not last as long as my Adidas or New Balance branded shoes.

I love these. They're so comfortable. I wear an 8 1/2 - 9. I got them in an 8 1/2, and they are almost too small, but I think the 9 would be too big. Now that I've worn them for a couple weeks, the size feels right. Because of the fabric upper, they have a lot of give.
