4.0 out of 5 starsGreat shoes.... but can a middle-aged man wear them in 2016?
September 6, 2016
I loved these shoes when I had them as a teenager in the 1970s. Fast forward.... I bought a pair of these in 2010. I loved wearing them again! Retro! Modern! Then they wore out I bought another pair in 2015. I loved wearing them again.... again! Then my son pointed out that Superstars are very popular with teenage girls. To rub it in, he sent my lots of pictures of girls at his high school wearing them.
Just received mine about an hour ago. They look good, like good fakes. I own a few pair of Adidas and these don't look the same quality. You can see the glue seeping from the seams. On top of that, they feel horrible. Extremely narrow, and I'm a slim guy I don't have very wide feet. Will be returning promptly. I don't recommend purchasing from this seller unfortunately.
Loved the look, delivery and packaging was legit, but I have only worn these shoes on a daily basis for 2 months and the material inside the shoes is tearing, fraying and appear as if I have worn these as running shoes for years. Disappointed to report that these shoes won't last me through the summer and that's an absurd amount to spend for shoes that can't last a full year of daily casual wear.
I see some reviews and photos from people saying they got a fake version. I received the real version with no problem.
I have the black ones and the white ones, as I do not like to wear the white ones when it rains and around mud. They will break in and fit fine. You can't judge the fit of them when they are new from the factory. They are of course tight at first, you have to wear them all day. They will them conform to your foot.
I got my black ones a half size bigger than the white ones but that's really just length. Mine came pre laced, which made them too tight to get on. I had to loosen the laces a bit and then all went well.
I haven't had them long enough to get broken in very good. I imagine these shoes will be very comfortable if you wear them every day or most days.
My son wears an 8 and a 1/2 and probably needs a wide shoe, but it's really hard for us to find his size--and shoes that don't hurt his feet. He finds these shoes very comfortable, we just loosened the laces and since they're leather they stretch a little bit as they're worn. They keep his feet warm and dry and they look trendy.
When I opened the package the shoes were in, I noticed three things. There is a small black stain on the white part of the top of the heel. The next thing I noticed was that they looked like they were worn already or used. The last thing I noticed is that they were coming apart at the seams and the glue was also coming up from the shell toe piece. I am returning them for a refund.
