I need 11W. The ones that I have are good, hopefully I can get another pair, Nikes are not good, they are really narrow.

I bought a pair of these in 1993 and am still wearing them 11 years later as my favorite shoe for work every day. The shoelace began to fray a couple of years ago. Now in 2014 the veneer has begun to crack and peel and the Avia nameplates peeled off the bottom of the sole. They are still my most comfortable shoe. It is time to get some new ones. I hope they still make them like they used to.

After about a week of wear, the shoes began to smell horribly, of what can best be described as a skunk and cat pee scent. No amount of washing, deodorizer, spray disinfectant, etc. would take the stench away - in fact, I think it actually got worse! I have several other sneakers, some of which also Avia brand, and I have no foot odor issues in any of them, so I know that the stink is not me - it's the shoe! Can't go out in public with them, they reek so bad. Too late for a refund I guess. Must be something in the Chinese-made materials or something.

Nice looking shoe that just falls apart soon after you wear them. The upper shoe is a paper-thin layer of leather glued onto a fiber mesh. The leather disintegrates like paper if you get them wet. I walked through wet grass and the shoe is trash. Even before that the leather had torn at the flex point.

Good shoes, I used them for everyday wear, and they lasted about 9 months. That's a little better than average for me. Very comfortable.

Great shoes I now own almost the entire Avia line. Zappos offered what the manufacturer could not, thanks. JOHN

I really like these shoes. I am not a runner but I have been wearing them on my elliptical and they are comfortable and sturdy. I usually wear a size 7 but bought a 7.5 after reading other reviews and they fit perfectly. I would recommend them.

These are the best sneakers I've ever owned - they are very comfortable and fairly lightweight. They appear to be of good quality material and workmanship.

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Lightweight, good looking, no break in, just put them on and go. I am on my third pair and don't know what I will do if they quit making them. Zappos service is amazing. I ordered around 3pm on Tuesday, and UPS delivered them around 4pm the next day. Unbeatable service!

I bought these for my husband mid January. He wears them regularly, however he has never had a pair last only 3 months. They have fallen apart & the sole has pulled away from the rest of the shoe. I know they didn't cost a lot but I would like more then 3 months of use. Sadly disappointed in this purchase.

I have written other reviews about the company and the sneaker. Nothing has changed - I'm sure people will agree with me that this sneaker is one fantastic value and you would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated and professional company to deal with.

I'm flat footed, so it's hard for me to find a comfortable pair of shoes at a reasonable price...but these were perfect.

Within a short period of time the black rubber on the front of the sneaker peeled off the shoe. Otherwise a good shoe, but look very shabby after a short time.

Shoes are a little narrow, so I am glad I went 1/2 a size larger. Fit well and are very comfortable. I have used this brand for years and am very happy with them.

Zappos.com is great. I have had no problems. The sneakers that I purchased are good and comfortable. I have them on now.

You really do get what you pay for. These are just uncomfortable shoes. After about three hours, my feet have a general ache to them, and I cannot wait for the relief of taking them off. They seem to be cut a bit narrow (4E did not fit like others that I have purchased) and cramp your pinky toe somewhat. They look okay and appear to be well made but I will never put enough miles on them to find out. A little spray disinfectant and off to Goodwill with these.

Best shoe I have bought for the price. Have used them for walking (I am 70 years old) and just everyday stuff. They look good and feel great. I should buy another pair right now, so when these wear out (everything does?) I would have another pair. Thanks Zappos for a great deal.

I think these shoes are just cut a little small. Order a half size larger or wider if you can. After two months of just about daily use I noticed the seam along the big toe was seperating from the sole. Other than that they were wearing well and were comfortable. I like the simple classic styling which is getting hard to find these days.

I initially really liked this shoe. For the price( $25) it was a comfortable well styled shoe that fit well. Maybe it was a little narrow but I have a EEEE width. But after 3 months I see that its split at the inside along the big toe so its lifespan will be shortened. I generally don't see that for 6 months or longer. Too bad, it was comfortable and I bought a similar pair based on its fit. It was a good looking classic show, other shoes have gotten weirdly over styled.

Zappos had the shoes I couldn't find in the stores and at a good price. Product as described. Quick delivery. I had to return first ordered pair(wrong size)and was refunded in about a week. Didn't have to pay shipping either way. Will buy from Zappos again!
