Nice comfortable shoes. Not bad.
Light, plain, comfortable, don't need to break them in.
The sole is made weird. Mine, sadly, fell apart.
The Bottom Line:
Overall, I liked these shoes. Pretty good, plus they're very comfortable. With a change of laces, they'd be perfect. (Oh, and I hope my next pair isn't defective.)
I normally buy a different brand of shoe, but mine was out of stock. So, I tried this one. At first, I wasn't too thrilled with the shoe - but I was pleasantly surprised.
These shoes are available in a variety of colors. Very simplistic patterns, not flashy at all. It's a great shoe for someone who would rather not look like a circus clown wearing some rainbow colored shoes that glow 5 different colors in the dark.
These shoes are decently made, from what I thought. The materials of the upper are pretty solid, and durable - for the appearance. They do feel a bit flimsy in the hand, like they're lacking something. They're pretty decent overall. There's not too much cushioning in the inside - these are a basic pair of shoes. The plus side to the lack of extra material - comes in the weight and feel of the shoe. They're light.
Another thing I liked about these shoes - is the fabric of the upper. It's soft - unlike a leather or suede shoe. It doesn't really need any breaking-in. They wear like your favorite pair of shoes that you've had for the past year - even though they're brand new. I really appreciated that.
One thing I do NOT like about these shoes - are the soles. They're very thin, and very flexible. They literally wrap around things. Perfect examples of this - try climbing on a rock with these - a particularly pointy one. It'll feel like you're wearing near nothing.
The cushion of the sole is 1/2 molded to the bottom of the shoe, and 1/2 is a removable rubber insert - which I was horrified with.
Another annoyance - the laces. I've known how to tie my shoes since I was 5. These laces will NOT stay tied. No matter how tight I pull them, no matter how securely you knot them - they just unlace all on their own. After the thousandth time - it gets a little annoying. Makes me wonder - if this is an advertisement for the brand - needing to bring my foot up every 5 minutes to tie my shoe, and show everyoe - "HEY! I'm wearing Converse!"
Lastly, sadly - as much as I like these shoes - after about 2-3 months of use, the sole started to come apart. I'm a bit upset over it - and I would REALLY like to believe I just got a defective pair. I'm seriously hoping the next pair I get - stays intact for a few months longer.
Overall, they're great shoes. I'd give em another run.
Ah, and I nearly forgot to mention... they're cheap too.
