Rated 1 out of 5Â by Towncrier65 Hate new Princess shoes!
I am so upset that you've changed the Reeboks I've been wearing for 20+ years. They are the ONLY shoes I could wear for every day because they cushioned my arch well. Two different shoes I tried to buy (in July '13 and in Jan,"14) were no good. The arch support is gone. Felt like walking on hard flat pavement. The first pair was the same size as my old, but was too short. My OLD pair that is worn out, has MORE cushioning than the NEW! After buying at LEAST 30-40 pair over these years, I cannot wear them. Please DO SOMETHING!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Sandy47 The shoes are stiff, uncomfortable, cheap-looking.
For decades, the Princess shoes have been my favorites--they were comfortable, stylish, flexible, and of high quality. I just bought a new pair, which will go back to the store. The new shoes are stiff, hard, synthetic, uncomfortable, and do not provide the kind of support the old shoes did. The price is the same, but the quality has declined.
I noticed that the reviews at this website are overwhelmingly negative. Reebok, time to revamp your product?
Rated 2 out of 5Â by JaniceM No longer leather
I loved these shoes for years.. I was always able to take them out of the box and never have to worry about breaking them in. Like another user I always had multiple pairs in my closet...from white and pretty to green stains when they got down to lawnmowing shoes. They were perfect out of the box. This review is in the past tense because the synthetic material just doesn't cut it for me. Sorry Reebok.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by stilltheone Bring Back The Old Leather Princess Style, Please!
Oh please, please bring back the former leather Reebok Princess shoes that we wore and loved for years! I refuse to wear plastic shoes and I see that I'm not alone.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Southerngirl007 This shoe fits like a glove.....
I bought these shoes after my first child. A little boy to keep up with.
Years past and I wore these shoes almost daily. After 10 years
I was still wearing them. I started doing a lot of year work cutting
grass flower gardens island area etc. I would even pick weeds by
hand just as a hobby and exercise. Well me and my Reeboks won the
yard contest!! Didn't know there was one but I got a little sign for my
yard in a subdivision of almost 200 homes and my shoes finally
started to show a little wear. I wore them on for a year and retired
them. Finally replacing them now. I'm a widow now and I'm getting back to my yard work, very happy with my Princess shoes. Best shoes ever!!:)
Rated 1 out of 5Â by CatMc Leather is Better
The synthetic is not nearly as comfortable as leather, a tremendous disappointment. So after 30 years in Reeboks, I am sadly hunting for another shoe.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Maxie Not synthetic - How could you change this shoe!!
I have been wearing this shoe since it first came out years ago - If I had to guess it is over 30 years. First you changed the arch to almost no arch!!!! Now you take away the leather. You can keep you synthetic version - I will no long buy this shoe. Why would you change a product that has such a loyal following according to the reviews I've read here. Please bring back the leather and the arch - "what are you thinking??"
Rated 1 out of 5Â by shoemaiden HOW HORRIBLE !!!
After reading these reviews I will NOT be buying anymore Princess
Reebox shoes. This will be their loss.....as I have bought 3 pairs
every year for many many years.
Let them sit with their plastic shoes.
If everyone stops buying them......they will finally understand consumers---are not as stupid as they think we are.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by LKB1 Disappointed
After wearing Reebok Princess shoes for many years and loving them, I was severely disappointed with my last pair. If I had known that they were synthetic and not leather, I might not have bothered to order them again. They are a half-size too small, and they make my feet so sweaty they are actually slippery. Why doesn't Reebok read what their customers are writing here? I would gladly pay a little more for leather. Otherwise, I am done with this brand.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by PrincessLover WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!!!
Oh Reebok.....What have you done to my favorite pair of shoes? No longer leather? No longer the most perfect shoe? I've worn these shoes since the early 80's and now I have to find something else.
I'm so disappointed!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by NJ4NV Oh Reebok..WHAT have you done to my shoes?!!
Like so many women, I have bought my Reebok Classic Princess shoes for many years. The fit & comfort could not be beat. Imagine my surprise when I bought my last pair (without trying them on as I never had to try them on before...) The fit was strange, the left foot was misshapen & the comfort was gone. I thought it was me. I thought they would stretch out & return my feet to the comfort I had always felt wearing these shoes. Well...none of this happened so I just retired them to the back of my closet. Since I had already worn them, I figured that I could not take them back. Well, last week I decided to buy another pair but I would try them on first. I was sure my last pair had construction issues that had squeaked by the quality control people. Imagine my horror when I found out they were no longer leather and they no longer fit! In fact, they were just about the most uncomfortable shoes that I had tried on in ages! I took this new found information & went home to check it with the pair I hid in the closet. Yep...not leather (explained why they scratched up so easily after just a few wearings!). New manufacturer too. And to make things worse, I see them advertised as leather, with a leather price tag, all over the place! Same leather price for plastic!! Sooooooo disappointed!!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Von58 Won't buy plastic shoes!
I've worn the black leather Princess shoes as work shoes for at least 10 years and am now in need of another pair. But I can't find any made of leather - they're all made of plastic, now. Now I have to find a real work shoe and pay twice the price. I'd rather pay a little more for a real, leather Princess. Very disappointed!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by BH1012 Want my old Princess shoe back!!!!
I have worn the Reebok Princess for 30 years. I have a narrow foot and bad arches. The fit and arch support were great, and the leather upper was long-wearing. Always had 2-3 pairs on hand at various 'wear levels'. A few months ago I went to replace them, and found the arch support gone - that was a deal-breaker for me. I checked the website today to see if by chance any changes had been made, and read all the negative reviews. REEBOK - WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE A POPULAR PRODUCT? Please- bring back the original Princess Classic!!! Until then, I am moving to other brands.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by PrincessFanatic Need the old ones.
My ratings above, apply to the recent shoes. Please bring back the leather shoes, in a couple of colors, other than black and white. I have purchased nothing but these shoes for years! They were good on my bad ankles.
Please -- even a limited edition. I will buy many. I don't understand how you could have made the changes you did. Many of the women who bought these shoes, were consistent, long-term purchasers. Please -- give us one more chance to buy them. Size 11, too!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by NanH I am so disappointed it is no longer leather
I have worn these for over 30+ years. I hate that they are now a synthetic material and do not understand how you can change them from leather...so many are buying them assuming they are leather and soon realize they do not wear the same or feel the same.
A long time wearing these as my favorite of all shoe for comfort and I no longer will buy them unless you make them once again in leather.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Cadnil Synthetic upper, not leather
Princess shoes have been my favorite leather athletic shoes for years. Unfortunately, they now have synthetic uppers. I encourage everyone looking for the Princess shoe in leather to contact Reebok about this. And Reebok, please bring back the leather Princess shoes.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by SoDisappointed Bring back the original! PLEASE!!!
The most comfortable shoe I wore for many, many years is now garbage! Formerly made of soft leather and with arch support, it is now synthetic and has no arch support at all. I was only able to wear the last pair I purchased after adding odor eaters and arch supports! And they are still not comfortable... SO DISAPPOINTED! WHY WHY WHY mess with a terrific shoe? Please bring back the originals!!!!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by ChristieV Disappointing Product after all these years
Reebok Princess has been my only athletic shoe for 20+ years, and they have always been comfortable, durable and affordable.
Recently I have noticed a DRAMATIC change in comfort and quality. The shoes are breaking down faster, arch support is not as good, the shoe laces refuse to stay tied, and the worst part is my feet have been sweaty! After reading reviews on a major online site, I just now learned that the shoes I have been buying are no longer made of leather. Finally, an explanation why they are so darn hot now...they don't breathe like they did before. I'm not sure what kind of shoe/brand I will buy next, but it probably will NOT be the now inferior product known as Reebok Princess. My only hope is that some of the old pairs in my garage might be the leather version, I would rather wear the old ones than a brand new pair of today's version! Very Disappointing! I would no longer recommend this product.

I am so disappointed. Please bring back the leather Princess.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Vonnie Not the Same
I have worn Reebok Princess for 25 years, including to work as a nurse. I just bought a new pair, the tongue hurts the top of my foot, and they are narrow. They are synthetic now, so they won't mold to the foot or breathe. That was my last purchase of Reeboks, am wearing another brand now.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Lynn21 Not leather?
I can't believe these reviews. I have worn the princess for years. I work banquets and weddings and these were the most comfortable shoes. Even after 12 hours a day my feet did not hurt. Why would you stop making them in leather? Who wants to wear plastic on their feet while working I guess I have to start looking for a new brand of shoe
Rated 1 out of 5Â by sheilajill Reebok princess
I am very upset that you are using man-made materials instead of leather uppers. I have been buying these shoes for 30 years. I just don't understand. These shoes with man-made uppers are stiff, uncomfortable, tight and NOT the shoe that I have worn for 30 years. And at $50.......I just can't believe you did this. I want the old shoe back.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bev1963 Princess sneakers
I was just about to buy another pair. I will not buy them now that I know they are not all leather. What a shame. I have been wearing them for years. Now I must find another sneaker.

jUST BOUGHT A PAIR OF THE PRINCESS SHOES AND I WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED ITS THE SAME SIZE i WEAR,BUT THESE WERE VERY STIFF AND NARROW THEY HURT MY FEET, WILL HAVE TO TAKE THEM BACK . nOT SOFT AND COMFORTABLE.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by KayCee Tried as an alternative to Freestyle
I wore Reebok's freestyle lows for decades and they were so comfortable. Alas, Reebok stopped making them so I thought I would try the Princess as an alternative. Unfortunately, they are so uncomfortable that I had to stop wearing them. I have never had problems with bunions, but after a few weeks wearing these, I was starting to develop them. Almost as soon as I stopped wearing them, the pain went away. So disappointed in the direction that Reebok is going.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by tasha33 Shoes are ok....
I am somewhat disappointed that the arch support is not in the current version of this shoe. I have been wearing this same shoe for several years and have been very satisfied. When I ordered them I should have read all the reviews before ordering. Many of the reviewers were very disappointed in this new version. I am only sorry they don't have the same arch support as before. The first wearing of the new pair gave me blisters on both heals. I have gone back to my old pair for now. I will try them again in a few days and see if they get better.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by kteacher Not like they used to be!
These have been my favorite shoes for more the 20 years. Now they are not comfortable! The synthetic upper is terrible, please go back to the leather upper. I would be willing to pay more for the shoes I used to love. The new ones are not worth anything.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by cindylouwho2 Why would you change the perfect shoe?
Princess Shoe, Classic, Leather. Bring it back!!!!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by lee1 I loved these shoes, wore them for years, especially when walking all over Europe. Now that they are synthetic, there is no give, no molding to the feet, which makes what used to be the most comfortable shoe, the least comfortable. The integrity has been lost. I would gladly have paid a few dollars more for the far superior fit and feel of leather.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MARGARET CLASSIC PRINCESS
While I normally wear a narrow shoe, the Princess is narrow enough in a B width. However, the sizing is one-half to one size smaller than normal.
