They are the most comfortable sneakers I've ever owned. I can wear them without socks and they feel fantastic. So lightweight! No rubbing, no blisters, no sharp edges or places to irritate. Just slip them on (laces are just for decoration essentially) and you are good to go! I normally wear size 7, so I bought size 7.5 and they fit like a glove. No room for thick or cushy socks, but no worries, you won't need them anyway. I highly recommend these sneakers!!
