To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don't do reviews anymore since Amazon seems to be random at removing them, but I feel I should warn you guys...
The back of these shoes is the stiffest, most unforgivable back I've ever worn. First day wearing them to a conference, I was in agony the entire day. I caught two cabs to avoid walking. I don't know what it is, the design or the lack of padding on the heel, but these are not for walking. Driving, maybe?
Only reason I'm giving them 3/5 is because I know you won't read the rest of the reviews. These are torture. They look dope, though.
Only wore these shoes 5 times. Here are my thoughts so far.
Pros: *Light and portable.
*These are off white. Pure white can be overpowering bright and glaring. Ever try to dirty your brand new white sneakers a little before wearing them? These goes with everything the same way.
*Minimal, simple and elegant design.
*Very comfortable cushion for my feet.
*Feels resistant to getting dirty compared to my other white sneakers. Have not wiped them at all and they still look clean.
Cons: *Big deal here. I used long to low cut thicker socks (standard low cut that show a bit) during my initial wears and had no issues. One day, I used thin low cut socks to work and the minute I stepped out of my vehicle, it dug into my Achilles badly. I barely could walk a few feet and was in total agony from the parking lot to my office. Luckily, I brought extra heel pads out of caution from other reviews. I was pretty doubtful of those at first. The heel pads do help, but a little bothersome. This is a let down given the price.
*A big concern is the durability of the leather. It is light and soft, but crease very easily and awkwardly around the shoe. I was walking and staring at them at first, but decided to stop being a maniac. It is less visible to see creasing with the white color. Think carefully getting a darker color. Use a shoe tree or stuff them to maintain its shape. That seems to help.
I tried a half size down, but it was a bit too tight and snug. I got my true size and noticed the length did not differ substantially, but it was a little wider and a lot more comfortable for my feet. Perhaps size down if you are between half sizes.
