I think they're cute...but wonder if I can pull them off. I'm thinking with slim leg cropped jeans/casual pants. What do you think?

Oh funny. I was afraid they looked too young. Now I have to wonder if they look too old as well?!?

Nope, still think they are cute. (But, take that with a grain of salt, since I am a 39 yr old who wears Toms and Bob's.)

I don't think they look too young at all. To me they are very reminiscent of the Keds my 80 year old grandmother wore in the 1970s. But given the tendency for fashion to go retro I can see young girls wearing them.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of them, but to answer your question - I don't think they look too young at all.

IDK, Andrea, ever since they came out with "Juniors" shoes several years ago, it made me go Aren't all shoe sizes alike?

I like them, I don't think they are too old or too young looking. I say get them.

Great looking shoes! Love the way they are cut on the sides and back, which make them look modern and so different from "Keds"

As much as I like the converse style (I myself would buy a colored pair, gray is too blah), they completely lack any support. This of course is proof-positive that I'm an old lady, even at 38 But like many things in my life, I'll just blame that one on the knee surgery and lack of cartilage in my right knee I'm even looking at like $75 flip flops for the summer because the $5 old navy ones don't do anything for me.

If you like them, buy them and wear them. I like them but I'm older than you. I don't know how much support or comfort they offer.

Not old lady shoes and I think they are cute; white Keds with laces are old lady shoes. Although, if you wear these with polyester, elastic waist pants then they might look like old lady shoes.
