Rated 5 out of 5 by kikkoya Great vintage addition
I found this on the web while I was purchasing the dragon for my husband. I am fan of vintage sneakers and when I saw this on the web I had to get it. Luckily, Adidas carry this model in small sizes. The sizing chart was very useful; it indicates that women's 7 is equivalent to 5.5 in men. So I order these in 5.5 along with dragon and it looks better in person. I am very much used to the walk with the flats so, to me, it runs just right, super comfortable (light weight) and stylish for walking. However, I think this is not made for the gym, running or any cross training purposes. Great buy with free shipping and return option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 STRIPES RULE HAPPY ONCE AGAIN !
Its been 33 years since I had a pair of my BLUE AND WHITE SL 72'S and SL 76'S. The last time I saw them, they were held toether with SUPER GLUE AND ELECTRICAL TAPE ! I had to bid farewell and retire them. It was like saying goodbye to an old friend. Thats all I wore back then. Now ! I have them (THE SL 72'S) again and Im totally estatic and have been since I got them. Now all I need are the SL 76'S and then I would probably lose my mind. ADIDAS !! IF YOUR READING THIS. PLEASE. PLEASE RE-RELEASE THE BLUE AND WHITE SL 76'S. ALOT OF PEOPLE OUT HERE STILL LOVE THOSE SHOES !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by slowen vintage look and quality fit
Great looking pair of adidas and you can't go wrong with the vintage look either. I found the fit to be spot on and the build quality is good as well.
I liked these so much that I ordered a second pair as they look good on and are a very light pair of trainers as per the name SL "super light". I'd say my only issue would be that the tongue squeaks when walking but I think this is only due to them being new so once they are worn in a bit they should go
Can't beat the original cw of the sl72 and I'll be getting the other cw's as well. You won't be disappointed if you buy a pair

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1twoMic Step back in Time! 5-star classic
A great shoe with 70's heritage. Living proof what Adidas did it right then AND now. A classic runner without the bulk and additional support of a cross-trainer. The fabrics and materials market a vintage look, but the striking blue and details are anything but washed out. Construction of materials is solid.
Lots of toe-room, and a comfortable, supportive normal/narrow style. I found these great for casual cycling as a lightweight shoe and of course walking and some time on treadmill.
I would recommend for the walk, run and good looks of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Miami Sport Returned them, Very Poor Quality
-Fabulous retro look, almost true to original.
-Very cheaply built shoe.
-Hard plastic tongue is very uncomfortable, will give you blisters where sewn to body of the shoe.
-Runs on narrow side.
Unfortunately I returned the shoes. They were impossible to wear even when just trying on due to plastic tongue. Ordered "Dragon" model, much better build and comfort. Those I recommend.
I am a fan of Adidas so trust they will take note. A shame to get a horrible shoe while expecting a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olivasayana1 A good shoe that becomes great over time
I saw a review that mentioned that the tongues are stiff. True. Give them a little time. They will become perfect. These SL-72 shoes seem to last forever, and are so light and form-fitting that they are like part of your own foot. They even look great for years. It is not recommended for suede, but I put leather conditioner on the suede reinforcements. You can even put color back into the suede with Sharpie markers after a few years. Thanks for bringing this great design back. Now, if only Adidas would build a Team Zissou shoe.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MPM My search for SL72s is over
I'm an original SL72 lover. Lived in them through high school and college. Sold them at the local mall. Been looking for them since I say other retro shoes coming back into stores.
Comfort, support, weight, so so close to the original
Not the originals, tongue squeaks, blue suède not as blue, sole is not as pliable.
Happy...wife says you look like a kid and kids say their cool and want their own...

Rated 5 out of 5 by El REY vintage shoe is great for crossfit
these shoes are light as a feather, the low heel is amazing for heavy lifts such as the deadlift, and power clean. the tongue squeeks a bit but once broken in, theses shoes will serve you well in any crossfit WOD. its also a great head turner just for walking around people stop me and ask where i got them, so not only will you look good in these shoes, you'll also look like a vintage beast in the gym, get these shoes.
