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.

Nice looking shoe. I really like the velcro, it's hard to find these days in an adult shoe. The only complaint I have, and the reason I am returning it, is that while it is a "wide" width and fits decently for the most part, the one area that is tight, tight, tight, is right across the top where my toes meet my foot and this is where the shoe "bends" so it really digs into my foot. You'd think folks making a wide width shoe would think about these things.

I have two pairs of these shoes and they've held up very well. One pair is starting to show wear on the bottom, but they've been put through a lot. I'm getting a new pair to wear to the gym. I have difficult feet to fit and they often get uncomfortable by the end of the day. I spend a fair bit of time outdoors with them in sandy conditions. No matter how careful I am, I always get "schmutz" in them and it's nice to just rip the Velcro, tip out the dirt and put them right back on. Wish they came in colors other than black or white. For the price, ya can't beat 'em.

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.

This shoe started falling apart after only wearing it for a two weeks! I work in retail so yes I work alot, but its all inside on marble flooring so its not like im outside climbing mountains and the shoes still fell apart. I ordered them because of the comfort reviews seeing as I walk all day long. First the velcro started coming off and now is completely gone and the bottom of the shoe is seperating. Cheap cheap cheap.

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.

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.
