I will give these shoes 4.5 stars rounded up to 5
The finishes of the fabric and the construction are near perfect - I could find one annoying loose thread in a seam but overall the industrial technology used to create this engineered knit and construct it together is quite impressive. The rubber sole is nice and hard and seems it would be be able to last long.
Pretty perfect - light shoes - comfortable throughout the day. Breathable. The included insole is good and provides some support. I personally like extra arch support so I switched it out easily.
This one is tricky, I don't love this look. Nor did anyone else I asked - and I did! Several friends and coworkers of various ages. It's very busy on the eye - can even make you somehow dizzy. This design is has an unclear message IMO. The design not ugly by any means, it's just hard to digest.
Looking at the picture it may appear these laces do not require tying, they certainly do.
My conclusion is that this is a very unique pair. Before buying think:
Does it look old or young you? Which outfits are you going to match it with?
If you have a clear vision - it's a go!
