I have always wanted to wear a pair of Chuck Taylors, but, having wide feet, I was never able to find a good fit. I wanted so badly to love these. YES these shoes rock - UGH!!!!). I only have one complaint about these shoes, they are way too big. Too bad, I prefer more than 6 months of use for a pair of shoes. I think the platforms change the fit of the shoes. I bought the solid black ones, definitely the best Converse style. Worth the money - I felt the platform was not too stiff and they are very fun to wear. I had a pair of regular black Chucks for a few years and I busted out the sides of them. I've had them for a month or so and they are way better than the typical canvas Chucks! Great shoe - very comfortable to wear. Reviewed in the United States on September 23, 2016. Reviewed in the United States on March 6, 2020.

My boyfriend loved these shoes, but they fell apart within about a month of him receiving them. They fit me great. I got them in all 4 colors and they are all I wear. Just like all Chuck Taylor Converse, there's no arch support, so I don't expect it. So, I ordered my usual women's size 11 and they fit perfectly. They are much more comfortable than the regular ones. I am beyond bummed to report that are super uncomfortable. I do feel like these run large but very slightly large normally in sneakers I wear an 8 1/2 but these I ordered a 9 and I still don’t think the shoe is a full half size larger so I’m glad I ordered the half size up because they are perfect ! Love 'em!! Fit and comfort are like any other chuck taylor style. I would also note that I had a problem with shipment, but Zappos was great in taking care of the issue. Classic, cool enough to wear to school yet casual enough that my students think they are cool.

But I just laced the shoelaces through the last eyelet (I normally don’t) and that completely fixed the issue. A half size worked perfectly for me, and Zappos customer service on the exchange came through with flying colors! By now I hope you realize I am being ironic and have nothing but good things to say about what you do. They need to improve the bond between the rubber and the fabric. I love these shoes!
