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)

This is the weirdest, expensive sneaker I have ever tried on. I'm a fan of the Adidas Ultraboost and was hoping for a similar fit and feel, but with a sleeker look and design. I am usually a size 8, but while that size made it feel somewhat like the Ultraboost, my toes were pushing right up against the top of the shoe, which I felt would be uncomfortable if I were to walk around in them for any decent length of time. So I ordered the size 8.5 and it still doesn't fit right. Like another reviewer mentioned, my toes on my right foot are swimming around (where I now have an ache in my leg after wearing the shoes all day). My left foot is fine, but there is also no way that this is a running shoe. Good for walking around and lifting weights at the gym. I bought mine on sale for $99, so I will probably keep them but DO NOT pay full price for these or you will feel ripped off. For that price, invest in a good pair of Adidas or Nike 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.

Amazingly comfortable and very chic looking. I can wear them running, with jeans or even black pants and I get compliments. They run a bit large for APL. I have ever SL tie pairs of APLs and they all fit me fine in a 7 1/2. This slip on I had to return for a 7 and it was perfect.

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!!

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.

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.

Disappointed in the fit for the price. Foot moved a good bit. The top portion was loose as well.

My sister in law has this shoe and loves. They are so cute! I tried two sizes and they just didn’t fit right for me. I usually wear a 6.5. They were too small and the 7 was good, but just wasn’t perfect for the price. But they are so cute and worth a shit to see if they fit you well

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.

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.

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.

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.

Super comfortable but I have to be honest...they’re ugly. And for the money I must LOVE them, which I didn’t...back they go.
