Rated 5 out of 5 by Starsky76 Light, breathable and really tough!
I've had these with me every day for nearly 17 months traveling around stuffed in my back pack in different countries/terrains/climates for my job. I usually pack several different pairs for different purposes, But I've always wanted a light but tough retro running shoe, but accepted it was probably impossible.
However, this unusually breathable upper mixed with a classic sturdy eva retro midsole/outsole is clearly the toughness secret you'd never find in a modern running shoe. I've run fast(ish) daily 1 mile sprints on grass/wet firm sand-not pavement (I need to get on 2 wheels for anything above 400m). So I'd genuinely recommend these as classic great value breathable all-rounders especially for those of you that only ever have 1 pair of sneaks at a time, really durable - you can bang them in a washing machine on a 30' tied up in a pillow case (saves unraveling the laces, to avoid machine drum-hole tangle nightmares) and they're fresh again! Seriously, these have been a decent investment for me. If you can live with the 'pre-knackered suede look' (until-we all pray, they release a 'full colour, white leather lace stay' non vintage version a'la Achill)) these are absolutely excellent! I've literally just ordered another pair. Ace!

Rated 4 out of 5 Alright purchase
The SL 72 vintage shoe is a great lookin' shoe with it's vintage retro color from the 70's 80's. But was a little dissapointed in the arch, a little to narrow and not wider in the middle which made it a little to uncomfortable to wear and doesn't have the flat lookin' sole to it. A little different than the 80's version which I remember owning as a kid. Just have to get used to the fit. But overall glad to have. No regrets.
