Let's start this out by saying that I never write reviews. However, this shoe was just so awesome that I had to create an account letting you know that you should buy it.If the four pages of other reviews still haven't convinced you, here's my shot.I'm very picky with shoes, but I bought a pair of these when I was in a pinch and needed shoes that weren't smelly and falling apart. Best decision ever. I've gotten so many compliments on these (I first bought the navy ones) and they've been great all around. I've used them to run errands on nice days and trudge through record snowy winters on terrible ones (though I would recommend actual snow boots for this).Maybe if I had worn more shoes other than these, they'd be in better shape, but after a year of love they've finally started to fall apart. I ordered another pair, this time the navy/white polka dot one, and it just came in today.After spending a couple of minutes in front of the mirror gazing at the majesty of my beautiful shoes, I knew that I'll get a lot of use out of them. I only wish I could order more colors.

Comments about City Sneaks Women's Bal Sneaker:
These are my favorite shoes. They are tight when you first buy them, but they stretch out quickly. The only issue with these shoes is how fast they break. I have to buy 2-3 new pairs every year because they fall apart.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cute, Cheap, and Comfortable
from Boston, MA
This shoe is wonderful! I have the coral eyelet, the purple/green floral, and the plain grey. The coral and floral are both super cute and such beautiful colors! The grey, unfortunately for me, was more of an earthier, brown toned grey than a darker, blacker grey, so it didn't work with my clothes. I returned it at a store, which was actually very easy! I've had the coral for over a year, and just got the others a few weeks ago. And now I'm considering getting a few more!The shoes are very comfortable. Although the shoe is very flat (which can feel very odd if you're used to walking in heels or boots), there is a surprising amount of cushion. Compared to other shoes that are very similar to this style, these are without a doubt the most comfortable I've every worn. I've trekked around Europe and my college campus in these, and my feet didn't hurt! After a few wears, the shoe had stretched and conformed to my feet, making them even more comfortable! Additionally, the shoe is very cute! It's a simple style that works with almost any casual outfit, and the variety of colors are just lovely.Because the shoe is made of canvas (and let's be honest, is pretty darn cheap), I didn't expect them to last very long, a spring and a summer at most. However, after a year (with about 7 months of heavy use and 5 months of occasional use), they are still in good shape! The tread is worn (but there wasn't too much to begin with), and some of the canvas is fraying a little bit, but a trim and a wee bit of glue fixed that right up. However, I'd only give 'em another year or so before the sole wears too thin to wear. But that's way longer than I was expecting them to last, so I'm still very happy!Overall, it's a great little sneaker, especially for the price!

For the price this is a great shoe. I have a wide fat foot and normally wear an 8.5W but was smart to get these in a 9W. Now a perfect fit. Just enough padding inside to make them comfortable (what do you want for under $20?) My only issue was with the rubber sole. Only about 2 sections of the sole are actually good for tread. I had to go outside and twirl around on the cement to get a stick so I don't slide around on hardwood floors. Not a major issue unless you plan to wear these around water or on a boat.

I LOVE these shoes. I have five pairs-- an orange that clearanced out, coral eyelet, black, yellow eyelet, and white eyelet. Now I am coming back for the black eyelet. If you wear the no-show socks (the thicker ones that go up a little higher, not the thin low nylon ones) they are super comfortable! City Sneaks are my weakness when it comes to Payless shoes!

I was expecting more
I have been looking for a good casual sneaker for awhile now, something I could throw on to run errands, walk the dog, ect. And so my husband picked me up a pair of the City Sneaks in the color grey and in a size 11. And I thought I had found the perfect pair because they were exactly what I wanted as far as style wise. I was wrong! They are so narrow that they literally pinch my feet as soon as I stand up. They are so tight that I couldn't even stand to walk across the room in them. And I don't wear a wide shoe or have fat feet or anything. Very disappointed! Needless to say I am returning them. I plan to try out the Airwalk version and see how they work out. I love the style but the comfort and an quality of the shoe just stinks! But hey if you have really narrow feet then these might be perfect for you :)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

True to size 13W
from dallas, tx
Ordered style "Coral Eyelet" in 13W. Just what I needed for casual wear and for light exercise. The lacing provides universal fit. I was pleasantly surprised by the added space in the toe box compared to the quarter vamp. I can lace snugly without compressing my toes. Color was true to photo. True to size in 13W. Two-layer canvas upper, with outer layer having embroidered eyelets, not a print; tongue is the same. A must-have for any lady's casual closet - and at these prices with such pretty variety, then why would you not?

Comfortable but cheap
from Petersburg, VA
When I first got these shoes they were very comfortable but it seemed like the more I wore them they got flimsy. I wear a 7 and the size was too small so the 7.5 was to big of course but I still wanted them. I spilled an orange drink on it and washed the shoes and of course the stain did't come out. I got the "WHITE EYELET" ones which get dirty so fast,

Not a good buy for me.
from Chattanooga, TN
I bought the pretty women's bal sneaker in the green, blue and white. Not comfortable. Hurt my feet. To narrow and tight on the sides and top of my foot. The opening is to large where the heel of my foot moved up and down when I walked. The back part of my heel on my foot that connects to the ankle hurt. Not a good buy for me.
