I ordered these for my mother-in-law who has lots of problems with her feet. She absolutely loves them. She got her normal size and is happy with the fit.

I got red Roos They are my go-to shoes Like them enough I want to get them in blue Have a pocket where you can hide written down clues To solve all the mysteries in the news (Comfortable, easy to break in, great for just walking around. Arch support and build quality questionable. Iconic looks. Zappos platinum, as always, seemingly bent space time to get them to me.)

The insole of the right shoe of the first pair I ordered kept sliding back as I wore it. Zappos was awesome and sent me a replacement. But then the same thing happened. I even mixed and matched from both pairs but couldn't get the insole in both shoes to stay put while walking.

Love the color and are very comfortable. No arch support though. They do run big. I usually wear a 9 but the 8.5 fit pretty well. I may have even been able to get an 8 and been okay with thin socks on.

Poor quality. Rubber outsole separated from midsole after 4 wears. Midsole feels like it could tear right off the heel at any moment. Return label printed.

It's been years since I last bought a pair of Kangaroos. I bought a size seven maybe about ten years ago, and it was the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever worn. My old Roos are now falling apart understandably after years have gone by, so I purchased a new pair here after unsuccessfully searching high and low in local shops and even in shoe stores when I traveled elsewhere in the country. It seems like the manufacturing has changed on the product. The shoe feels at least half a size larger than marked. And upon pulling them out, they had a strange straight shape as if you couldn't tell which shoe goes on which foot. Of course anybody could figure it out, but it just appeared strange to me. Needless to say, they had to go back, and sadly, I am uncertain if I want to get another pair in a smaller size.

I bought these shoes for my girlfriend. Like another reviewer said, the shoes run big. I bought a full size smaller (7.5) and they fit my GF great! She says they are very comfortable and look fantastic.

I couldn't be happier with these sneakers. They are super light weight, very comfortable and the sizing is perfect. The Zappos' reviews are always extremely helpful too.

Awesome as per usual but size is way to big. Get a full size smaller than what you are. Maybe up to two sizes smaller.

I generally wear a mens 12, I ordered these in a 13 and they were far too small. On top of that, the right shoe was clearly smaller than the left, though they both were marked as 13. Bummer, they look good and feel nice.

I thought they fit way too big, until I realised Zappos sent me the men's 8.5 in the same colour. I know they would have fit me perfectly if there wasn't a screw up. So not impressed with Zappos but love Roos and buy them all the time, so I know they normal fit well and are very comfortable.

So these are cute. But the 7.5 (my normal size is 7-7.5) was way too big; the 6.5 fit in the length but was too narrow over the toe. There isn't really much in the way of arch support or a whole lot of cushioning, but I wouldn't expect those in a fashion-oriented sneaker. Go for these if you have fairly narrow feet and healthy soles!

I have had many roos in my life, my first pair was in 1980 or something. I love the comfort of roos (seriously amazing after you wear them for only 2 hours). I use them to do parkour and find the grip beyond anything out there. It's too bad they're so hard to find. The last two I had were the Combat Racer, not just the combat like these. Although these are exactly as advertised, I can't get over how big these are compared to the Racers. I take an 8-8.5 (39.5 European ideally, which is in between the two) and in the Racers the 8.5 is a 40 European, so I bought that size in the regular Combats as well (the 8 in the racers were too snug). But with the plain Combats the 8.5 is a 40.5 European as opposed to a 40! That's like a true to size 9. I could have gone for the 8 instead. Why would they make them differently like that? It's the same brand, the last should be the same, no? I know, just send them back! But I live in Canada, and so am not able to do that. So, if you don't want to be sending them back, go one size down. But great shoes!

These shoes are absolutely adorable. The sizing on these is so off! I typically wear an 8.5 or a 9 in most shoes. I ordered an 8 and have to return them for a 7. I'd suggest ordering at LEAST a full size smaller, maybe 2.

Really cool looking shoe with decent support. I like that the rims around the ankles are a little higher than most sneakers, so my weak ankles feel pretty secure. They were easy to break in, but I had to order a whole size smaller - they run very large/wide.

These shoes are cute, but took some wearing in. The backs were kind of sharp at first. They're a bit warm for summer wear but are comfortable.

These are great casual, retro shoe for the price. People make lots of comments on the shoes and remember when they kept their lunch money in the zippered pocket.

I have mixed feelings about the style of these shoes. They are sneakers at the end of the day, but I was looking for a cute pair of walking shoes to bop around in. I have plantar fasciitis and heard these had great arch support, however, I did not find them to be any different than any other pair of sneakers. I have very high arches as well, and wish these had a little more support. I have received compliments on them and think they are cute as sneakers, though a bit clunky. I am keeping them, because I think overall they provide a different look than my regular running sneakers.

I could barely believe my eyes when I saw these on the online catalog. They are just as I remembered them. I am so happy with this order.

I hadn't seen Roos anywhere since I was a kid. The hidden zipper pockets are cool for a number of reasons. Finding anything I like in size 14 is often a challenge for me, so thank you Zappos! The shoes are very comfortable and supportive as well, and a great deal on price.

Love these! Only (small) issue is that they look so much darker in the picture - I looked at them on a couple of different devices. Other than that, they're super cute, comfortable & stylish.
