Rated 1 out of 5 by Trader1 Not the same
This is about the tenth pair of laver's I've purchased and they are not the same. HEAVY! Immediately when I took them out of the box I noticed the weight and then compared them to an old pair I own. Also, the stitching on the side appears somewhat different. Not sure if these are a defect or poorly manufactured. Disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steviep Crazy Heavy
Have been looking forward to having these released for over a year now. Finally picked up and pair and they are heavy (I actually weighed them and they are over a 1lb per shoe, which is insane and about 2x the weight of the previous version). I tried them on and felt like I had ankle weights. Hoping there was a production issue, but these are going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by oven something is wrong
I have been waiting for these shoes to be offered again as I have been wearing them for years. I ordered two pairs in the same size as my old pair. The new shoes were at least 1/2 a size bigger and maybe a full size, and were very heavy. Nothing like my old pairs. I have returned them and do not want to get another size as the new increased weight is uncomfortable. Too bad, I really liked the old shoes.

I've owned these shoes since the 90s, they are my favorite shoes outside of the Gazelle and Samba.
The upper seems to have changed for the better since the last pair I bought in 2011, but these latest are super heavy - heavier than my all leather version.
Another pair bought in 2012 just fell apart - upper was super stiff, plastic-y sole and the painted sole just flaked everywhere.
Somewhere around 2008 was the last great pair I bought. These two pair are going to be returned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by heavyrod Fix the heavy soles and these will be perfect.
Adidas.. in case you can't tell by these reviews, change the soles!! They're too heavy. These are classics. Everyone loves them. I sure do. Just please fix them and we will all love them even more.

Why? Why would you change a signature classic shoe? Way too heavy! Shocking when they came out of the box. Put right back in the box and returned. If I could give a "zero" star rating -- I would.

For years Rod Laver Tennis Shoes has been my choice for playing tennis. But the latest Rod Laver tennis shoes I purchased on line are very heavy so I will need to switch to a different shoe to play tennis.

I have been wearing Rod Laver shoes for.. forever. And even a moments unavailability can be cause for a severe anxiety attack. For those who have never experienced this shoe, buy now! Buy often! Thank you

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dane53 Change back to old arch support
I have worn Rod Laver for years. I have a high arch and these were the only shoe that fit my arch and I just had to get a new pair and they changed the arch. Could not wear them. Change back the arch, please.
