    The shoes fell apart at the seams within the first two weeks!

    It seems like you can get vegan, eco-friendly stuff, or you can get stuff made in the US, but not both.

    They're all very comfortable and have a nice, somewhat original look about them.

    Why are these listed as for "men" only? Wanted the Orange one in 7, wasn't available. Waited for over a month and finally bought biking red. Love it! Very comfortable and stylish. These shoes don't need any break in- can wear them right away for extended hours. No leather. And IMHO they should definitely call them uni-sex. :)

    I was very pleased with these shoes when I initially received them. I purchased the Black/Green pair here from Amazon and was very happy with them when they arrived. They are very comfortable and I really liked that fact that they are eco-friendly and all that jazz.

    However, I'm just now over having worn these shoes for 100 days and they have already begun to deteriorate. I have 5" rips in the fabric on the inside curve of both shoes where the fabric meets the rubber. The left shoe has tears higher up towards the heel. The soles are wearing faster than your typical sneaker as well. This is all with non-abusive wear. I untie and retie my shoes every time I take them off or put them on. I don't skateboard in these shoes nor do I run or any other activity that might be particularly rough on the shoes. The most use they see is walking across campus to class.

    Overall, these are very comfortable shoes and a great idea, I just expected a pair of shoes at this price to last at least a year. I suppose they would be nice if you had another pair to alternate with or these were your after work shoe? You've been warned.

    I bought these shoes in Nov 2010, and immediately loved them. They're super-comfortable and fit really well. The shoelaces were a little too short, but longer replacements laces are cheap.

    After wearing them for about 2 months (by now in the middle of winter) I noticed my right foot was FREEZING, to the point of being almost numb from the cold. After a week of this, I found that the right shoe had a 3-inch tear in the fabric were it met the rubber sole, right at the toe bend (the upper 1/3 of the shoe that bends when you move your toes up and down). Figuring I'd gotten a bad pair, I filled out the needed paperwork for a warranty replacement and sent them in (shipped at my expense, of course). After 7-10 days, I received an email stating that Yes, the shoes are eligible for a free replacement and I'd be receiving them in a couple of weeks. I finally received them back in late March.

    Flash forward to today (June 28) and it's pouring down rain outside. I noticed my right foot feels damp, and Lo and Behold, another tear in the exact same place. I have no idea how long it's been there; this is the first significant rain we've had in a month. But I'd guess a few weeks at least.

    My guess as to what is causing these tears is this: I tend to drive mainly with my toes on the gas pedal, not the entire foot. The constant up-and-down motion, along with it resting on the gas with the toes bent, is causing this tear to develop. This is the only thing I can think of; it's not like I'm doing heavy labor outdoors in them. So while maybe not entirely the fault of the shoes, I still expect a little better quality from the manufacturer. At the very least, they need to take of look at this issue.

    I bought these shoes because I was hoping for a comfortable pair of shoes that would also be breathable. These shoes are comfortable from the start but I have only been wearing them off and on for 2 months and they are already falling apart. I haven't used these for anything other than wearing to my office job and occasionally taking my dog for a walk and they are ripping where the canvas connects to the sole.

    I would not recommend these shoes.

    This shoe is excellent if you're looking for a sneaker for day to day use. I've recently bought this off amazon and took roughly 4 days to get here. Once i took them out i realized the quality and effort put into this shoe. It's a eco friendly shoe with nice padding and it looks good. These are ideal for casual use like hanging out or even at the office. its comfortable and it seems sturdy so far. Came with no loose lining or stitching. And the inner sole is comfy. Help save the planet and look good too. I definitely suggest these shoes. 5 stars!

    All "green" pretensions aside - these shoes quite comfortable right out of the box. No need for "break-in." No weird lumps or bumps on the insides. Comfortable for walking and everyday casual wear. While I haven't had these a very long time, they appear very well constructed and feel like they will last a long time. The cotton uppers are very breathable - so far no weird "sneaker smell" that you would get from an ordinary pair of canvas shoes. Lastly - who can't love a pair of shoes with cute little worms on the bottom!

    I have been wearing Simple shoes for over 15 years now and this pair was by far the worst overall. The were wonderful when new and delivered just as I expected they would.

    However, as many other people have noted, they began literally falling apart at the seams after about 8 months of casual use. I have had the D-Solve shoes for just about a year and a half now and the upper has almost completely unraveled and detached from the sole. I have owned Simples in the past which lasted me 5+ years, so I am very surprised and disappointed by this shoe's lifespan. Somewhat of a plus is that Simple has a one year warranty on their shoes.

    I really wanted to like these shoes - they are essentially the Old School Simples just made with eco-friendly, 'dissolving', materials. Problem is: they begin to dissolve too soon!

    I think I'll go back to the O.S. from now on.
