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.

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.

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.

Exactly what I hoped for. Easy to order. Fast delivery. The sneakers were just right. I've been looking for these shoes everywhere, and now I got 'em.

Very quiet and comfortable. There's really no break-in period for these sneakers. I go running in these shoes, and they provide great support, and the pockets are cushioned even that I can fit a key or a couple bucks in there.

There are definitely not of the same quality as the otherwise identical pair that I bought in 2004 - the tongue barely reaches the top of the laces and the overall feel is cheaper - but the original pair has been one of my favorites and I still use them for yard work, so I'll continue to give these a try for the cost.

I get compliments every day on these. I have them laced up in a diamond pattern and they look awesome. I just wish they had more choices in color. I will definitely be buying another pair or two in the future.

Colors are true to image. Great fit. Definitely hand made as I had some handwriting on the toe and some missing brush strokes on the blue trim, but that was far from Zappos' problem. Yet they more than rectified the situation.

I forgot just how cheap these shoes are/were! In a few wearings I'm already worn through the sole at the heel. Even for 35 bucks these shoes aren't worth it.

These are awesome old school kicks! I get compliments every time I wear them! I sparked them with waterproofing before the first wear and they hold up great in all weather. They are a really great value for the price.

Shoes came swift, however the quality was poor. There were places where the glue was showing on the shoes. Maybe it was just my pair, don't know. I'm a fan of Roos though, and I may buy another pair anyway. I will return them if the quality is like the first pair though..

These shoes are sweeter than ten grandmas. I used to have these when I was all small and I kept valuables and contraband in the coin pocket. Nobody would even know. Nobody knew what was in there. Only I did. Only me. The Velcro on the Roos is super fresh on the coin pocket door. It is super fresh and kind of hard to open because it is such fresh Velcro. I love these. I teach PE so I need shoes that help me do fast kicks and boss children better. After I got these shoes I went to the grocery store and just went around telling people to look down. And when they did that, they saw the Roos. And every single person was all "Aw, man I used to have those" And I would say "I know you did. Now I got them" And then I would swivel my foot around all model style to show off the Roos as well as possible. And then the person would ask where I got them. And I stared them straight in the eyes and faces and said "I will never tell you." I should say I got them from Zappos to give them more business but that is not what happened. The reason I will not tell people is because I do not want everyone to start wearing them and then I have to go around all the time being like "I used to have those before anybody else did." And people will be like "yeah right." And it will not even be worth it to convince them. It will not even be worth all the energy to make people believe me. So, in summary, these shoes make me have an existential crisis of the mind and body. Also, buy them. Since you already know about where they are.

My husband had a pair of these Roos over 20 years ago and loved them! He wore them forever it seemed until they fell apart. They were hard to find but I now have a pair for him for Christmas. He will be thrilled! Thank you, Zappos!

Great looking and nostalgia of having some Roos is great. But they are cheaply made and fell apart right away (zipper broke, sole ripped in half) from very light amount of wearing them.

These shoes look great! But they feel horrible. The arch support was so far up in the shoe, it was under my forefoot. If it had removable insoles, I would have kept it. The rest of the shoe was comfortable and I really like the look. Oh well, back to shopping on Zappos.

For at least the past five years, I've always had at least one pair of KangaROOS in my sneaker rotation. These black Combats are awesome and have silver leather around the shoe opening (where you slide your foot in) which makes them much more durable than previous versions that used suede/fabric. I usually wear size 10.5 (mans) and while the Combats seem to run a little narrow initially, the width stretches out over time. They also wear pretty good overall and typically the first thing I wear out is the sole. Definitely a great, stylish shoe.

My first pair of Kangaroos! I've wanted a pair of these for quite a while. I really like them; they look good and they feel fantastic! They really are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes that I have. And the pocket on the side...classic.

I owned a pair of these shoes back in 1984, and I am amazed that they have remained unchanged. I just hope they have done their homework and they've improved the glue that holds the soles to the shoe. Back in 1984, these shoes looked awesome, just as they do today...but just don't get them too wet. The glue back then didn't hold well, and the soles literally came off the shoes. I am ordering a pair right now, and in the future I will write another review. I can write a review because I already owned a pair (back in '84). I can attest they feel like wearing puffy clouds in your feet. They are light, comfortable, they hold your foot with even, well distributed pressure (no pressure points on your feet), and they are extremely quiet shoes, even if you wet the soles they won't squeak on a tile floor. Walking with them is a true pleasure. I just hope the soles hold, unlike they did back in '84.

Really like these shoes. Def something different and a great price. They are kind of warm on your feet but so far make great everyday shoes.

I love the nostalgia of these shoes; however, both shoes began to fall apart at the seams (literally) after about 2 weeks of wear. If you don't care about them looking abused after less than a month's wear, by all means. If you would like to wear them as everyday shoes, I could not recommend them as the proud owner of a pair.
