I had four compliments on my first day wearing these babies. They are perfect for any casual outfit and are extremely comfortable; providing arch support and enough cushion to wear all day. I wasn't expecting that! Bonus. I usually wear a 9, but from reading the reviews I bought them 1/2 size smaller than I usually would, and they fit great.
Love this shoe

Best tennis shoe ever, fits true to size. I had the canvas, had to get the leather. Had discounts on both when I bought so was happy with that. Many compliment on the shoe. Easy put on at arrival and wear all day long....
Great for guys too

I just got these and they're awesome. I've worn converse forever but the leather chucks are a little lacking in quality in my opinion. These are an awesome and super comfortable substitute to converse

I wear scrubs a lot for work. My feet were getting cold this winter because of the mesh shoes I was wearing. These are a perfect solution! They arrived quickly, were true to size, and look great. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
A wonderful go-to shoe

I needed a shoe that I could take traveling that would work for long walks through the airport as well as look cute for dinners & brunches. I'm so glad Simple is back! Their shoes are so comfortable & have such a nice squishy sole, so you can just walk and walk and walk. And it's nice that these are leather- my dad commented on them right away, so they've got his approval! In Simple's old shoes, I'd wear a 10, but in these I wear a 9.5 (my size in most other shoes if they run half sizes).
Bigger than expected

I ordered my usual shoe size (8) and they were way to big. I am working on exchanging them for a size 7, and hoping they will fit better! Other than fit, they look great and feel very comfortable.
Even better than the old ones

I loved Simple sneakers and when they went out of business, I combed eBay for more. I like the leather versions best, so when I saw these new Satire leather models, I ordered a pair.
Here are my thoughts:
1. They are softer and have more padding than the old ones. So even though they are brand new, they feel very comfortable.
2. I read reviews saying these were smaller and narrower than the old versions. I don't find that to be the case. The old ones seemed to run small on me, so even though I am normally an 8, I found 9 to fit better. Not knowing if I should order an 8 or a 9 in the new version, I split the difference and ordered at 8.5. It's got plenty of room in the toe and is a bit loose in the heel, so I think an 8 might have been better. I have a narrow foot, so perhaps others might not find them as roomy as I do.
At any rate, I recommend that you order your normal size. That's what I plan to do when I order my next pair. These are a close enough fit that I will be keeping them.
Happy to have my Simples

I had been a fan of your shoes for years and was devastated when you went out of business. I was buying any stock leftover. Was very happy when on a search found you back in business!
