Love Love

I’ve been a huge fan of simple since the beginning and was super sad when you guys closed... I had no idea that the company was re-opened so you probably missed out on my business for the last three or four years simply because you’re advertising never reached me ...are you advertising ??that you were still alive? I just search for you on a whim because I was feeling nostalgic and missing my old kicks...Until very recently my Facebook profile was just a picture of my feet in my new kicks

Not an all day shoe

I like the look but the arch hits in the wrong place and my feet hurt at the end of the day. Cute shoes but not as comfortable as the old school ones of the 90s.

Best Shoes Ever

Ever Since I first went to Santa Monica in the mid-90s and found a pair of simple OS (black) on third Avenue, They have been my favourite shoes. Suitable for almost any activity, I’ve had some that I’ve kept fresh for as long as possible, and others that ended up covered in mud and paint. Living in London, It wasn’t easy to keep replacing them, but we were lucky enough to have several trips to California until the early 00s, and my wife would roll her eyes at the predictable need to go shoe shopping for me for this particular size and colour. I managed to forget about Simples after they disappeared from shops and it was so great to hear that the company had had a restart. I’ve already been through about 10 pairs since then and have 2 new pairs ready to go when I need them. They’re not cheap either - my current nearest supplier has them for £85 - but I know it’s worth. Most of the time, I just don’t feel right with my OS sneakers in black.

Please make them in smaller sizes!

I had a pair in college and loved them. Would love to have a pair now but I am a woman’s size 6. Please make smaller sizes!

Classic Throwback

I wore these shoes constantly in my younger years and putting them on again, I can remember exactly why. They fit great, they feel awesome and they look rad as ****.
