Perfect fit and very confortable. Classy but not too much.

I was lucky enough to purchase the OTHER Stan Smith floating around out there, the classic one with the stitched tongue and higher-quality materials all the way around. And I will say that it is an amazing shoe, classic style, incredibly comfortable, and simply beautiful on foot.
If you can get your hands on the stitched-tongue style as opposed to the padded tongue you will not be disappointed. In a side-by-side comparison, the padded-tongue style available in the US just feels cheaper and a lower quality.

I remember the young salesman in the Wilshire store so may pairs ago looking at me sincerely and exclaiming: "You know, these aren't good for anything anymore!" I guess he was right, they aren't for running, or sprinting, fencing, soccer, or even competitive tennis anymore. They are extremely comfortable, true to size, great for walking around and are acceptable casual shoes where other sports shoes might be frowned on.
Stan Smiths have classic style and comfort. I guess that still makes them good for something.

Great but not the vintage release
First off, this is a great retro release. It's very accurate to the original and it's made with high quality leather. However, there's one thing about the US release that disappointed me.
The style pictured in the Stan Smith Returns ads and marketing is actually the UK/international "vintage" release, which is even closer to the original than this modified US version. It also used higher quality materials.
I'm a bit disappointed that adidas advertised one model in the US, then released something completely different. Other than that, they are classic and comfortable.

simple style that will last a lifetime
Best purchase I have made this year so far.The shoe has a sleek style that doesn't require much effort when paired with a nice outfit. It does fit true to size and very comfortable!

better with wear
I would recommend ordering a 1/2 size down.
These shoes are definitely the cleanest pair I own! They are my everyday use shoes. They look better the more you wear them, and they also get more and more comfortable as time goes on. To break them in, I'd recommend using a hair dryer on them and then just wear them around the house. Like I say, even though it's a white shoe, getting them dirty just gives them that character. Also if you decide ordering them true to your size, put an extra pair of insoles in there or something that will do the trick!

Can't beat classic
Well designed, minimal branding. About the quality you should expect. Who needs the high end/high price version when you can have the real deal?
If I could make one change, it would be a suede heel tab as opposed to leather. That's it. I swear I saw a version like that but I guess you can't always have it all.
I wear a size 8.5 boat shoe (barefoot, tight when wearing socks), bought these in a 9 and they fit well in socks (MAYBE could have gone half a size down for better fit in toe but it's close).

Nice but order a size larger?
I ordered these on the internet and had to send them back: the size 8s I ordered were so short and tight that I could not walk. The sole was almost a full inch shorter than my regular size 8 Adidas runners.
Also, the black leather doesn't have so much sheen to it, which to my mind limits the use as a crossover to casual non-sports wear
Having said that, they are a very smart and versatile shoe - I will certainly buy a white pair, but from a shop where I can actually get the size right.
