SL 72 Shoes
Best show yet
Fantastic shoe. Looks great with pretty much anything.

I love these shoes, and it was nice to see this color scheme cheaper than normal. I've been buying the SL 72 shoe for about 10 years now. I used to have to buy it from Argentina, but now I can find it on the Adidas website, which is amazing. They have some other extremely awesome colors, but this one is near perfect with the red, white, and blue. The SL 72's I have bought from the Adidas website seem to have a different construction than the other pairs I bought. They seem to be more lightweight and have less structure to the walls, but this is not a bad thing. I feel like I can sprint pretty well in these things when trying to get somewhere quickly. These shoes feel fast and look sooooo perfect.

Impulse buy... very comfortable right out of the box. These shoes were already laced, what more can I ask for? Very light weight without all that new technology designed into the shoe. Go out and buy some new kicks, your feet will thank you.

Most Uncomfortable Originals
The tongue on these shoes feels like cardboard and the bottom of the tongue just past the last lace sits right above where the top of the foot meets your toes. Questionable materials and very uncomfortable. They look great, so it's unfortunate. I've owned many pairs of originals, but these are a dud.

Great-looking sneaker, so far so good
I read a couple of the other reviews that mentioned getting a half size bigger than my usual size, and I'm glad I did. I usually wear an 11 but ordered an 11.5 and they fit good. I've had them for several weeks now, and I've played soccer in them, hiked in them, and they've held up to the wear really well. I don't know how they'll be a year from now, but so far, they're in good shape and I really like how they look. Probably my favorite sneaker I've bought.

Bought these for my son to start the new school term. These are lightweight (due to the nylon) and the suede/rubber areas are hard wearing. Very smart and stylish and reasonably priced.

Probably my favorite pair... Ever.
I highly recommend getting half a size to 1 size over your typical shoe size. However, these shoes will not let you down! I ran through a storm the other day, so adding scotch guard will keep water "damage" to a minimal, it definitely won't keep them dry, but if you set them out for a day, they'll be dry (or you could throw them in a dryer). Anyway, yes, these are some good, retro-looking shoes!

Comfortable light weight and looks great. Old school look

Although the shoes are quite light-weight, the tongue of the shoes are really uncomfortable. The edge of the tongue cuts exactly on the bridge of my feet so I immediately thought about refunding it.
