Rated 4 out of 5 Perfect shoe, wrong size for me.
The shoe is awesome! I love it! I really like the design and the feel of the shoe. The only problem is that I think I got 1/2-1 size too small of a shoe due to the chart conversion online. I've worn Converse for the past 7 years of my life, and I wasn't sure how the size would convert over to Adidas. I thought to myself, I wear a 6 in women's, which is a 4 in men's. This being a men's shoe, I look for a 4 on the men's size and bought the shoe. I should have looked on the women's side for a 6 and bought whatever size that was on the men's side of the conversion chart! Overall I am still quite satisfied with my purchase and do recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great shoe!
I just bought these shoes from Kitson and they're pretty legit! I'm a college student so I'm always looking for cool shoes that will last and be comfortable. These fit the bill and everyone likes them! They're pretty comfortable but a little tight. I guess when I break into them they won't be as stubborn as they are right now.
Unlike some other reviews of these, I believe these shoes have just the right fabric and have enough fabric to support the feet. I love the navy color which goes with pretty much everything in my closet. The gold font and brand logo are pretty legit too. It makes ya feel good that your shoes are Dragons haha.

Rated 1 out of 5 by The Kyle Nice looking but will they last?
To be brutally honest, I'm not sure if these will last 2 years or 2 days. There's little to nothing in between your foot and the outside layer of the shoe, so they aren't exactly very comfy (the size is correct though). The etching and fabric designs on the outside rub up against your foot on the inside where the stitching comes together. It's both rigid on the inside but more or less pliable as an entirety. I'd most likely return them if I didn't have to cover return shipping myself. All in all, the experience has taught me to buy shoes in a brick and mortar store so I know what I'm getting straight away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by YorkshireRapper Great Looking Shoes, Wrong Sizing.
I love the look of these shoes but the sizing on the Adidas website is pure fiction. They are way too narrow and at least a half size too short - I'd even guess they were a whole size too short. Stupidly I thought that they just needed breaking in so wore them for a day which was a mistake; I can't return them and they didn't get any better with wear. Kicking myself (with tiny shoes!) that I didn't just courier them back to Adidas straight away but it's too late now. ADIDAS: PLEASE STATE ON YOUR WEBSITE THAT IF YOU BUY THESE SHOES PEOPLE SHOULD ORDER SIZE UP FROM THEIR NORMAL SIZE. Muppets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DaveOredsaint Think I would go for leather alternative
These trainers are a fairly narrow fit, so I tended not to fasten the laces to tight as they had a tendancy to dig in to the top of the foot. Size wise, buy the size that you are and not ½ size above or below as adidas sizings are fairly spot on.
Surprisingly, given that they are a narrow fit and have a very shallow sole compared to other trainers that I normally wear they were comfortable and although the sole is fairly stiff, there was still flexibility so as not to feel like walking on planks.
Not sure how the material would hold up in the wet though compared to the leather Samba trainers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Maynard K. runs too small, shoes still look awesome :(
even though almost all user comments on this product complain of the shoe size being smaller than advertised, it isn't changed to meet worldwide size standards. i have 2 pairs of pumas in size 11 (U.S.) that ft perfectly ( as well as a cheap pair of new balance work shoes) but i find that trying to wear my size 11.5 pairs of Dragons is simply impossible, as they are way too small (lengthwise, though width-wise they're also a little tight).
just fix your size system and all will be well, the shoes do look fantastic sitting in their box waiting to be shipped for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by City Runner Good buy but be careful.
I had the original Dragon shoes a little time a go and they were great.I decided to buy a new pair but they were quite different from the first ones. They were narrow and for guys with big feet I recommended a 1/2 to 1 size big and be careful before wear it,to see if both feet are not defective. I bought mine 3 weeks ago and the left foot was very different from the right foot. The positive point was ADIDAS customer service. They were "GREAT and EFFICIENT" as always, and send me a new pair after 2 days of my complain. In general, the Dragon Shoes are worth a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walsh Great casual trainer
Brilliant trainer and definitely one of the best Adidas do. Go perfectly with jeans and are very comfortable. Very good quality and I've had one pair (my first proper pair of Adidas classics) in grey for almost 3 years and they're still in decent condition. Worn them to see The Stone Roses, a couple of festivals and countless football matches and still in great nick! Other than a bit of wear on the sole (which has got to be expected seeing how much they've been worn) if you stick them in the washer they come out as if they were new! Adidas at their best.

Rated 3 out of 5 good every day street shoe
I bought these because my other adidas shoes are too hot for the summer. However, these were only mildly less hot. The mesh is padded providing some insulation, not the best for the summer.
Adidas products have been true to size for me for years except these shoes I had to get a half size larger. The arch support is not very substantial but present and in a good position for my foot. The part of the shoe that rests on my achilles is tall and often rubs that part of my ankle. Cheap inserts raising my heal up a bit solved the problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by The shadow Materials are too thin
I've been buying Adidas since the early 80's and is clear that the company has been going thru lots of changes and owners as well. It feels like because the company wants to offer lower prices on the Adidas shoes the shopper has to sacrifice the quality of the shoe, I'm trying to day that this shoe feels very thin and weak and I would prefer to pay more for the shoe than have a lower quality product like I have now, still a good looking shoe but if you use it for your everyday life then it's not gonna last you too long
