There's never been another like him or his sneakers, which is why the unconventionally classic design hasn't changed a bit since Chuck wore them himself. Durable canvas upper stays true to the original design. Rubber cupsole supplies low-profile traction.

Bought these for my 3yr old daughter and she does love them. They are lightweight and pink. I think she runs around more in these shoes than her other ones.
The toe of the shoe does scuff up a lot. My thing is, how come the star is not on the outside of the shoe? It is only on the inside. Seeing the star on the outside lets everybody know that you do not have knockoff Chuck Taylors.
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, doesn't crease, good ankle support, breathable
Cons: gets dirty fast

I like the fact that these shoes come in a 12.5. because a size 12 would strangle my little toe. I think these feel lighter because of the mesh. You're feet feel drier because of the mesh and they feel better because of the circulation.
The only bad thing about the mesh is that it feels a little scratchy under the arch.
Pros: good traction, high performance, lightweight, good arch support, comfortable, breathable
Cons: mesh has scratchy feel

This shoe looks bulkier than it really is. It is a really low cut and low profile shoe and very light. I think the shoe size runs a little bigger than normal, I really wear a 12.5 but that was too big for me in this shoe, i had to return them and get a size 12.
The insole is very soft and cushy and the tongue is attached to the bottom of the insole so your foot is really locked down.
The toe box is really roomy but your feet do not move around in the shoe because of the attached tongue and your foot sinking into the soft foam insole.
The heat gear material is sort of like their compression shirts which is on the toebox and around the collar of the shoe. This makes for a very light, comfortable and probably very breathable shoe.
Pros: good traction, lightweight, high performance, good arch support, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable, low profile, responsive
Cons: runs a little big

Do not go by your 1st impression when trying on these shoes. Mine was that these are uncomfortable. I think my little toes were screaming the 1st day I wore them. I actually wear a size 12.5 but I had to settle for a 12. The shoe fits all of my toes perfect but when it comes to my pinky toes that is where it was tight and I was wishing for my 12.5 size. I wore them for about 3 hours the first day and then I had to take them off.
The second day I wore them doing some yoga and I guess the material strecthed a little bit or my toes started to get use to being spread out.
The 3rd day I said I am really going to test these out by doing one of my Insanity workout videos which is a high intensity, lots of plyometrics type of workout, and they felt good. I was worried because I cannot do this workout in any shoe except Reebok zigtech's because they have a lot of cushion and support.
But these Adipure trainers give you just the right amount of cushion to protect your feet but not so much where you do not lose too much barefoot feeling. When jumping they teach you how to land on the balls of your feet that way you don't destroy your arches and have good arch support.
I would advise when you put these shoes on do not shove your foot so far to the front of the shoe to where you are trying to get your toes to the top of shoe. Puts too much pressure on that pinky toe.
And wear them in the house for a couple of days before you decide you are going to return them.
Pros: good traction, lightweight, high performance, good arch support, durable, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable
Cons: maybe tight on the little toes

Synthetic upper ensures comfort, fit and durability. DMX® Shear cushioning panels provide added comfort and reduced heel stress. Forefoot flex grooves offer added flexibility. Multi-surface outsole gives traction. Wt. 11.8 oz.

I did not believe that this shoe was as comfortable as the Reebok ads stated. But when I bought this pair and did the Insanity workout I can truly say that these shoes took a noticeable amount of shock off my knees and shins. Even though they are running shoes they have great lateral support and a secure fit.
I hope Eastbay can snag the Pump ZigTech that way I can have both of two worlds from Reebok.
Pros: cushion, support

This shoe has great cushion and is surprisingly lightweight for its size. The only thing is my heel slips often, even though it is the perfect size. I cant go any smaller in size.
Because of this I always think i am going to run out of the shoe even though it has a forefoot strap.
For the price of the shoe it should have a good heel cup, that is why I gave it three stars.
Pros: cushion, lightweight
Cons: heel slippage

This shoe looks great and is a comfortable and light weight. Yet it has good support for a very low to the ground shoe. Might run narrow, I wear a sz. 12 but had to get a sz. 12.5. Breathable too. I don't know about the form fitting part i have not had them long enough to feel. Definitely a good shoe.

I like these shoes a lot very supportive and great cushioning. Very breathable from the mesh toe and collar.
The insole is made of a very cushy, rubbery material it is also very tacky. My socks always get stuck on the insole when i am putting on my shoes.
It is very supportive because of the cradle on the heel which is very rigid. Low to the ground feel with a low collar for mobility. At the same time it is a lightweight shoe with great traction.
Also the tongue is connected to the bottom of the insole for that snug feel which is why I love Under Armour shoes.
Only thing I do not like is the synthetic shiny material gets deep creases in them after you workout and they do not allow discounts on their prices.
Great cross-training shoe, I use it on my Insanity workouts.
Pros: lightweight, durable, comfortable, breathable, supportive
Cons: price

I tried on a size 12 in the store and these shoes were tight around my toes. How much does going half a size up give you in the toe area.
