These are super cute - even my teenage twins complimented me on my new workout shoes! :) They were perfectly fine for a weight training; I have yet to run in them.

I really like these shoes. After seeing them on so many bloggers I finally decided I had to have these. They are super comfortable, and look great. I won’t be running in them but for HIIT workouts and generally “mom life” they are perfect. I ordered my normal size and they fit perfectly.

3rd pair of this particular APL style. Used to wear size 9 (which is my typical running shoes size) but size 9 felt a little too short. I use these on one particular elliptical (whose foot pad does not adapt well to other running shoes) and I also use them to walk outdoors after I have been injured because they are wider and keep my toes splayed and away from each other. I ran with them briefly a few years ago but they are too flat for that purpose, at least for my feet. Caution: women with narrow feet may not like these shoes (unless APL has come out with a narrow version); cinching down on the laces is somewhat limited.

The sea salt and black are super cute (especially for the sale price). I am a women 9, purchased these in the mens 7.5. They are a perfect fit!! The material is not as stretchy as I had hoped and wish they had more arch support, other than that, a great shoe.

The cushioned footbed makes this shoe so comfortable. Also, easy to slip on and off. However, the color was very bright, and summery. For $200 it needs to be perfect. I ususally wear a size 7 1/2 in athletic shoes (Nike), but in this style the 7 fit well. Really nice quality shoe.

VERY comfortable and hands down the best slide I have purchased: this was a lot of money for a slide for me but it gives a lot of support and feels like you’re wearing a sneaker. Went on the APL website and purchased an additional Pair in a bright color too. I can’t say enough positive things about this slide.

The soles of these slides are made of lightweight rubber/foam material that feels like it will do well in a pool or beach setting (as well as around town). I don't think the soles will rub the skin or stay wet like my Keen, Sanuk, or Hoka One One slides (which are my most comfortable, supportive shoes, but I have to wear them with socks). The elastic on the top of these slides feels snug enough, but not overly so. I have size 10 wide feet with high arches. The size 10 length of these shoes is perfect. The width is actually good, too! The arch support isn't as good as some other brands, but it is definitely there. I ordered the rose gold color, which is just as pictured here.

I received a pair from my sister who knows I'm always favoring functional shoes that look good for travel. Felt I needed to wear socks with these to fill the shape - I'm a barefoot easy on/easy off person. Ended up ordering your apropos footwear sport skimmer for bit more support and dressier look - very happy to become more acquainted with zappos.

This shoe is super cute, I won't deny that. In my order, I order a few different pairs (mainly so I can try them all on and return what I don't want), and had high hopes for this shoe. To be honest, this shoe felt no different than a $45 pair of Nike's I also purchased. I cannot justify then $165 for this shoe vs. spending $45 for Nike's that felt the exact same.

The shoe design is fresh and the for the most part, the shoes are comfortable when you have the right socks. I use socks that have a high lip in the ankle to protect the skin above the ankle. I've worn out 2 pairs of these APL shoes. Each pair lasted about 3 months before the sole of the shoe wore out. For what it's worth, on average, I buy a new pair of athletic shoes once a year. I normally replace my athletic shoes before they are worn out. However, APL shoes are being replaced MUCH sooner than expected.

I recently purchased these shoes and have received many compliments. I have used them for working out (weight training) and walking around. There isn’t much arch support and they are a bit roomy in the toe box. I normally wear either a size 7.5 and 8. I purchased these shoes in a 7.5 and have to wear socks or else they would be a tad large.

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.
