Rated 4 out of 5Â by macckle Cool shoes, but some things to consider
These look AWESOME from the top and front, but the side and rear view is a little weird because of the narrowness of the wedge (further described below). They look like super cool classic kicks, and your feet look like postage stamps (i.e. very tiny)
2) Unfortunately these actually made my feet look a little too small (they are a 6.5, 37 fit comfortably if a little loose around the ankle). I'm generally a size 2-4, but because these made my feet look so tiny that my hips looked a full size larger...not a big deal, but it was weird, it made me look a little unbalanced.
The background color of the shoes is canvas, not suede as I expected (although the description notes that the shoes are suede and canvas).
I had imagined these kind of like tough looking hightops that have a hidden wedge, but the unexpected narrowness of the supporting heel made me look very young and cutesy (like I felt like I should go out and jump rope all of a sudden)...not exactly what I was going for. I can see how I though they were formed a little differently from the side view pictures, but you get an accurate idea of the shape from the rear view and more heavily shadowed pics.
Overall great shoe, seemed pretty true to size to me, but just not quite what I need out of a $200+ shoe. That said, definitely give this sneaker a try if you're thinking about it- if it works for you it'll definitely be worth it!
