Thank you for your feedback.
I'm very pleased to say that they not only fit great, but they look and feel great too!
The black looks good with my stone washed jeans and the blue adds a hint of color to break up the monotony.
Easy to lace, and very easy to get on/off - I'm impressed with these DC shoes and might just have to get a second pair!

    Size: 11 D(M) USColor: White/Gum Verified Purchase
    arrived on time, great condition, good all around shoe. the fine people at dc even made certain to measure the laces out when they put them in the first two holes so that they were just about the same length on either side. one note of caution: i have worn vans for years. i always buy a size 11. i bought these shoes in the same size and noticed they fit a little looser. maybe for people who are used to vans, buying a half size down would be appropriate.

    Size: 9.5 D(M) USColor: White / Battleship / White Verified Purchase
    If you don’t already know I love to buy new shoes, and I usually purchase a new pair every one or two years. Last April when I decided it was time for a new pair, I started searching online. I love that the internet has such a wide variety of products across all types of brands and styles. After quite a few days of research, I narrowed my choice down to the DC’s. I was unsure about what sizes to get because they are men’s shoes, so I decided the smartest thing to do was go to the mall and try to decide what size I needed. I also thought it would be a good idea to make sure I was getting the best price. These shoes were available at a couple of the shoes stores at Crossroads Mall ($65), but the Amazon price was a little cheaper ($48.95). Without trying the shoes on, I would have ordered an 8.5, but I found that a 9.5 fit much better. I am very satisfied with these shoes. They are everything I expected; they are comfortable, fashionable, and durable. I love the color because they match almost everything. The pair I ordered last April still looks brand new (I have washed them a couple times). I would definitely buy these shoes again.

    Size: 11 D(M) USColor: Black/Black/Dark Grey Verified Purchase
    I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED, EXTREMELY SMALL, IT SEEMS DC REALLY MESSED UP THE SIZE OF THIS PARTICULAR MODEL OF SHOES, i always had 11 size shoes, but this particular DC model, we ordered 2 different colors and sizes and both were really small, its seems they felt short 1 or 2 sizes, this looks more like a 10 or 10.5. i don't know how the mess the sizes like this

    BE REALLY CAREFUL WITH THIS SHOES, ORDER HALF OR ONE SIZE BIGGER THAN THE SIZE YOU ALWAYS USE

    Size: 7.5 D(M) USColor: Black/Pirate Black Verified Purchase
    I'm an 8.5 in women's and came to the conclusion that a 7.5 in men's would be best. I was right! Awesome fit and they're similar to my old DVS sneaks. Couldn't pass up a pair of $65 shoes for $18 and change :)

    Size: 8.5 D(M) USColor: Black Plumeria Verified Purchase
    When I first got these they fit a little smaller than I liked, however, once I started wearing them more they stretched out and fit perfectly fine. Very satisfied over-all considering I had to wait 2 months before they had my size in stock.

    Size: 13 D(M) USColor: Battleship Verified Purchase
    I actually ordered a full size larger with the hope it would fit the width of my foot. It was just right in length so it runs small. I know this is a skate shoe but it is too hard to find a flat soled shoe that has support. The shoe base is hard, no cushioning. My back needs nearly reversed drop or 0mm to not be in pain. I was hopeful and it would have worked out if they offered the shoe in wide widths. A cushion insert would have worked for the hardness factor. I am sure this is a wonderful shoe for most skateboarders but I am looking for a walking shoe! It is a nice looking shoe!

    Size: 9.5 D(M) USColor: Black/Pirate Black Verified Purchase
    Personally i am not a skater, I am a mechanic. with that being said i walk and run a lot, so sweating during summer really took the comfort out of wearing shoes. so i opted for an alternative
    1. This exact model has a small grip circle at the bottom which surprisingly have a bit of grip on oily and greasy surfaces (of course with proper balance and sense, i do not recommend to someone who is not familiar with such surfaces).
    2. Comfortable over all, wide so my foot toes don't feel tight.
    3. Has 2 small "breather" holes on the side that are EXTREME help on odor and sweat. And by EXTREME i mean almost rid completely.
    I use them everywhere. and i mean everywhere.
    Good looking, Good Price. Cant Complain.

    The fiance loves his new shoes! And I think they look great on him. They were a little stiff for the first few days but really comfy once worn in.
