One of my favorite purchases!
This pair is one of my favorite possessions. I wear these every week—even to work!—and people comment on how cute they are all the time. Per the 1-star review, perhaps they are a bit chunky in appearance and roomy in fit, as far as Chucks go, but I think this is because they're built more solidly than any other pair of Chucks I've worn: thicker and denser rubber soles, stronger laces, and durable canvas that actually leaves a little (welcome) room for your feet to breathe. As a NYC dweller who walks everywhere durability is my top consideration in shoe choice, and these have held up quite well after more than a year of scraping against city concrete. 5 stars.
I ordered this pair of converse in my normal size 9. The 9 felt, and looked, like a 10 (or larger) when I compared to my other pairs of chucks. I felt too guilty spending $150 on a pair of chucks that looked like clown shoes on me... I returned them :-/
