I happened on a pair of the SLO sneakers back in 2007 and loved them. So glad they’re back!! They just get better with use; soft and comfy. I get happy just putting them on my tootsies. The natural beige color is perfect, not too white, not too tan... just right.

Simples are the best!

I had a pair of Simple’s years ago & absolutely loved them! I wore them till they had holes & then they had to be pried from me! In a rash decision I saw a pair of converse at the store & decided they’d be a good replacement. Well I tried breaking those shoes in for literally years & they were so uncomfortable. I’ve had 3 surgeries on my feet and have very high arches so comfortable shoes is really important, but you still want to love the look of your shoes. I remembered my old Simple’s & decided to try to find them online. Great website, shipped quickly, packaged well. But best of all instantly so comfortable & really cute. I’m a loyal fan now, wont deviate again. Thanks so much for the quality!

Great Shoe — Perfect for Casual Wear | Pretty Good for Skateboarding

I bought two pairs of the SLO Naturals on accident and I ended up liking the shoe so much that I kept both. I love the simplicity, sustainability, and style of these sneakers. My girlfriend saw me wearing them the other day and now she wants a pair for herself! As a skate shoe, it has the perfect balance between flexibility and stiffness. The front of the shoe is also surprisingly durable. That said, as a canvas shoe, it can be a bit fragile in other spots. The space where most people ollie is weak. I wore through it in about 6 hours of skating. Regardless, it's nothing that can't be fixed with tape or Shoe Goo. In the future, I'd be happy to see the material they used on the toecap in place of where the hole is in the attached photo. Overall, this was my first Simple Shoe and I will definitely be ordering more shoes once the two pairs I own are used up. Like the title says, it's the perfect shoe for casual wear and the only issues I can find with it are minor and only relevant when they're used as a skate shoe.
