First off the styling...I just cannot explain how much I love the look (I had the ice version but love the gum outsole look) since it's so classic looking and classics are timeless. I love all white sneakers because they look great with almost any outfit. The only problem is keeping them clean so every once in a while I throw my white sneaks in the washer with bleach...but this is true of any white sneakers.
The materials used are nice as well and they feel durable. I like the outsole because the way it is designed it really helps prevent slipping. I wear these shoes loose so it's always nice to have a grip on the wet ground. The perforated toe is also nice too while adding a pretty decent amount of water proofing since it is a leather upper.
I also paid $46 for these shoes so I am happy with them and because of the price I gave these shoes an extra star.
Now onto the two main issues: comfort and cushioning. Now these two might sound the same but they are not...at least not to me. Cushioning refers to how well the shoes return energy and how they absorb shock. Comfort refers to how they fit your feet and whether or not you can go sockless or no-show.
The cushioning is basically non-existent. I've seen some Reebok Classic models that actually incorporated a much softer midsole in addition to memory foam insoles...these shoes feel like walking on thick cardboard. They can at times be really painful to walk in. I've literally put in over 100 miles of walking in these shoes and my legs and knees were painful. The midsole is really firm and basically hard. I didn't expect to run in these shoes (please don't...they will kill your knees and ankles) but at least allow me to walk in comfort with these.
Secondly, don't bother doing no show socks or sockless...these shoes will not give you that. The inner ankle bone area of my left foot was bleeding due to the chafing. Blood got on the inside of my shoe and I was wearing no show socks too. There is no lining inside the shoe so these shoes are definitely meant to be worn with socks...even though these classic styling shoes (even the cheaper ones) all have some type of inner lining to prevent chafing. The tongue itched my ankles like crazy when I wore no shows so I had to position the tongue past the first two rows of lacing so when I tie my shoes the ends are underneath the tongue. Hard to explain without a picture, but essentially these shoes will have to be worn with ankle high socks...which was disappointing.
So all in all, they are nice shoes but they have to be comfortable...I really want to return them but I also hate returning worn shoes. So I may keep them or sell them on eBay.
