Rated 5 out of 5 by Starsky76 Light, breathable and really tough!
I've had these with me every day for nearly 17 months traveling around stuffed in my back pack in different countries/terrains/climates for my job. I usually pack several different pairs for different purposes, But I've always wanted a light but tough retro running shoe, but accepted it was probably impossible.
However, this unusually breathable upper mixed with a classic sturdy eva retro midsole/outsole is clearly the toughness secret you'd never find in a modern running shoe. I've run fast(ish) daily 1 mile sprints on grass/wet firm sand-not pavement (I need to get on 2 wheels for anything above 400m). So I'd genuinely recommend these as classic great value breathable all-rounders especially for those of you that only ever have 1 pair of sneaks at a time, really durable - you can bang them in a washing machine on a 30' tied up in a pillow case (saves unraveling the laces, to avoid machine drum-hole tangle nightmares) and they're fresh again! Seriously, these have been a decent investment for me. If you can live with the 'pre-knackered suede look' (until-we all pray, they release a 'full colour, white leather lace stay' non vintage version a'la Achill)) these are absolutely excellent! I've literally just ordered another pair. Ace!

Bought this trainer and I love them. They are already one of my favourites in my collection. If you don't own a pair, then buy some!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kikkoya Great vintage addition
I found this on the web while I was purchasing the dragon for my husband. I am fan of vintage sneakers and when I saw this on the web I had to get it. Luckily, Adidas carry this model in small sizes. The sizing chart was very useful; it indicates that women's 7 is equivalent to 5.5 in men. So I order these in 5.5 along with dragon and it looks better in person. I am very much used to the walk with the flats so, to me, it runs just right, super comfortable (light weight) and stylish for walking. However, I think this is not made for the gym, running or any cross training purposes. Great buy with free shipping and return option.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hitya Good looking shoes
Bought these but the size 5 was far too tight for me. Bought size 6 an they were way to big. The tongue seems a little odd. I think it may rub. But I still love them.

Got these to replace the 2nd set of Chile '62 trainers which gave me great service Like the Rom Trainers you should move up Half size from the fit of the Chile '62 and they are spot on I would also say that the comfort is exceptionally Good !! Wanted something retro and these Ooze that groovey 70s look. Go well with Jeans. a Must Have for any wardrobe Thanks Adidas
