I like these for several reasons: they fit well, are comfortable, light-weight and slip on easily. I have sneakers that tie and wanted one pair that I could just slide into and be done. These satisfied all my requirements. This is the second pair I've bought. I'm happy with them, but there's one issue that I did note. I wore a different tie-up pair of these shoes on a trip to New York. Although the method of tying the shoes was different, they had the exactly the same sole. The shoes were wonderful for long walks and everything was perfect - until it rained lightly. Manhattan has a lot of metal plates in the sidewalks. When I stepped on the first one, I hydroplaned. My feet literally shot out from under me! Any time I walked across one of the plates, the same thing would happen. I slowly and carefully picked my way back to my hotel walking only on the outside margin of sidewalks. It was just too dangerous to walk in the middle.
My leather shoes did not slip on the metal plates and neither did another brand of sneakers..
This doesn't matter when I'm at home, the shoes are comfortable and I wear them a lot, but there's something about the design of the sole (which looks cool and feels good) that makes the combo of metal and water dangerous.
