I loved these shoes, right up to the point that they started to come part at the toe after about 10 times wearing them. My recommendation is to just buy another brand. I love the ROO's but if they can't make a shoe that last more than a few weeks I simply can't justify spending my money with them.

My problem I found with these as they are very cute, but the back of them and the tongue top part are so hard and stiff I had to return them because they felt so uncomfortable and hurt my heel and top part...but that's my thought on these. You can try them but I would not recommend them at all!

Great service. If you need to exchange something for a different size, they are quick to help and make sure you are satisfied with your purchase. Love the shoes, they are comfortable, exactly what I wanted. I plan on buying another pair in the future, different color of course. I highly recommend buying from Zappos, not only will you get a great product, you will recieve your purchase in what seems like no time at all.

These Roos are very well made and have excellent arch support. I took them with me on a recent holiday where I did a considerable amount of walking, and they performed admirably, considering they were fresh out of the box at the time. However, I've taken off a few stars because I think the giant Roos logo on the side is ugly, cumbersome, and unnecessary (they looked a lot better with the exposed side zip) and because they have absolutely no give whatsoever, which made it difficult to put them on or take them off without having to wangle the laces in fifteen different directions (this was particularly annoying when I was going through airport security). The other thing I've noticed is that in the short time I've had them, they've mysteriously acquired a giant dent on the back of one of the heels. As for sizing, the size charts I found on-line were completely inaccurate. I was led to believe I was ordering a UK 6 / US 8.5 / EU 39, but when I got them, they felt like they were at least a size too big. When I later checked under the tongue, I discovered that a US 8.5 is in fact a UK 7.5/EU 41.5. I feel compelled to add that my feet are extremely narrow, which may have contributed to the problem, but I thought it was worth mentioning for other people who are considering buying these shoes.

First off let me say that these shoes are very comfortable and look awesome. The pocket on the side is dope as well. That being said, the quality of these shoes is atrocious. After only 4 weeks the rubber sole started coming off of the heel. The rubber has become unglued about 2 inches from the heel forward. I'd wanted a pair of ROOS for so long and these look great and are comfy, but quality is just junk on them.

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.)

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 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!

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.

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.

I had been looking for some casual sporty shoes and these were perfect! They are fun without being silly and they have decent arch support (much better than some of the other brands that have such thin soles).

I am disappointed in the quality of these shoes but impressed with Zappos service. I have owned Roos in the past without a problem and was looking forward to getting a new pair. These are comfortable and cute. However, the black and white parts of the sole near the heel began to separate after only a month of wear. Zappos customer service was absolutely great and replaced them without a problem. However, my second pair is doing the exact same thing.
