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.

Sizing ran small, I gave the shoes to my daughter who wears one size smaller than I do. Fits her perfectly. She loves the shoes.

Normally I love Avias, but these were one of the most uncomfortable shoes I've tried. Sole is very narrow and poorly positioned, leaving shoe feeling unstable and unsupportive. I tried the 7 1/2 and 8, and both were problematic.

These shoes are good: light weight and fit well. My only concern is the traction. Depending on the surface you are walking on, it is possible to slip and slide.

Ouch! These shoes hurt my feet the instant that I put them on! It was like there was a golf ball under the heel of my foot.

Really liked the look of this shoe but was a little too small. Am ordering another pair a half size larger but they are out of stock so I will have to wait until they are back in stock. I love Zappos! Never have a problem with any Zappos...the are the best!

I am sorry I did not keep this one, but it came in 3rd place out of the nine shoes I ordered an I could only keep two pair. I felt good and looked great.

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

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.
