These shoes are awful, honestly. My normal shoe size in literally every brand imaginable is a men’s 8.5-9 but in Adidas sizing that equates to a 6.5-7 in kids. Which can be a good thing since youth shoes are often cheaper. So when I saw these shoes had 5 stars across the board, I ordered them with out hesitation only to realize how misleading the reviews truly were once I received my order. The people giving this shoe 5 stars are people that have not worn the shoe at all. but instead purchased them for their son/daughter etc. and are boasting about them because they are cheap & matched their kids school uniform or whatever. They’re not basing their review off of their experience wearing the shoe. SOOO.. if you are buying these for yourself, learn from my mistake and steer clear of these shoes. Yes, they look good in a picture. But they will look awful on ur feet and will hurt like hell if u wear them for too long. For starters, they are so bare bones cheap. It’s just mesh cloth single stitched onto a rock solid rubber sole. That is it. The sole is not a super plush multilayered structure that is typical of adidas shoes, I am dead serious when I tell u it is just one piece of solid rubber with a razor thin shoe insert laid on top of it. And as if that wasn’t going to be uncomfortable enough, they have shaped the sole in a way that is completely backwards for natural arch support. Think of your typical shoe insert that you might buy to support your arches. They cup the heel, remain flat around the outer edge of the foot, and elevate slightly on the inner edge of the foot to provide proper arch support. When you put your feet into these shoes, they are the complete opposite. The sole is raised really high at the heel, elevates around the outer part of the shoe, and is sunken in around the arches, essentially forcing your foot to supinate as you wear them. If you wear them for extended periods of time, you will undoubtedly experience pain & discomfort due to the imbalance. WHICH OBVIOUSLY SUSAN & BARBARA NEVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE WRITING 5 STAR REVIEWS BC THEIR KIDS ARE WEARING THEM AND THEY ARENT.
SOOO... In conclusion, if you’re purchasing these for someone that is not you and don’t give two sh*** how they feel, then by all means disregard this review. But if you plan to buy these for yourself, don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
