Lite & fashionable
October 24, 2011

True to the size, lighter than expected and it also looks great on foot. I have a wider foot and I was worried that it would be too tight. It fits perfect, it seems that it stretches to fit any type of foot. So far I tried it in the gym and street walking.

Pros: great for travel very lite.

Stylin' AND comfortable!
September 14, 2011

These shoes are super comfortable, and are stylish enough to wear to work. I bought them 1/2 size larger than my usual 9.5, and they fit great with light socks. The black color looks really cool and the shoe is very lightweight. A great buy, especially on sale!

Pros: lightweight, stylish, comfortable

If you like pebbles in your step...
September 02, 2011

This shoe is stylish and more affordable than others, but it's not great for trails, walking fast and should only be used on a flat surface considering pebbles and the like get stuck in the tred. The back of the shoe around the ankle is lower than on a regular tennis shoe and takes a little time to get used to, but mainly this creates space around the ankle for any little thing to come in the shoe. Also, I ran a half size larger in this shoe. I kept the shoe because I didn't know these things and because they look good and are super light.

Pros: stylish, light, Cons: not good for hiking, week ankle support

I love these shoes. Very light and comfortable!!!!!!! I bought the Green Sheen/Raspberry ones and the color is more amazing in person than on the computer! Anyone who buys these shoes will love them!!!!!!!


runs small
August 01, 2011

It seems to run small. I am ordering a half size up and hope they get here before my trip. The shoe seems just right for summer travel and hikes, light and breathable.
