    I have only this one major complaint. They squeak loudly enough that unless there is significant white noise, you hear them every step. Otherwise they are comfortable and a good price.

    Since making the above complain, I found out that it's the insert, not the shoe itself, that squeaks. Just replace the insert with another insert and (for me at least) the squeaking stops.

    Broke down and grabbed a pair as I wanted to try the "tubes". Sizewise I wear a 12 and these fit OK. Little looser feeling in the heel compared to the reeboks verona II's I picked up as well recently but once dailed in and running I didn't have any issues. The laces are a bit short in my opinion and I would have liked to have seen them a few inches longer. Build quality seems pretty good, no loose threads or misfitting plastics. They look good as well. I went with the 50's and their heel only tubes only over the 100's and the full length tubes.

    They were comfortable to run in but not as cushioned a feel when running as the aforementioned veronas. I tend to heel strike and am a bigger runner (6'3" 210) so I thought I would notice an effect from the tubes just having them in the heel (hence why the 50's vs. the 100's). There wasn't one, that I perceived at least, but again running in them is very comfortable so I think they are providing some benefit. I tend to go 2-3 miles at a time and the legs, knees, and back feel good when I am done running in these. I have used Nike Shox's in the past and Reebok Zigs as well and haven't felt them at work either. The tubes themselves are very stiff and unweilding to the touch very much like the shox's and zig's. Feel wise I would buy them ahead of the zigs and they would be a toss up with the shox's. In both those shoes the soles outlasted the uppers and inserts and I think these tubes will as well. Overall a good shoe that I like running in, which to me is a good thing. Nothing paticularly magical about them due to the tubes, but I would buy another pair in the future.

    I bought this pair of shoes for my 12-year-old son, whose shoe size is 7 to 7.5. It's hard to find anything similar at stores below $40. This pair fits his need perfectly.

    About time K-Swiss come out with something that caught my attention. Great job on this pair. And I saw other ones as well. This shoe is very light. Comfortable, great price. and nice style. I shall buy more. The other colors price should come down. Someone told me all K-Swiss were heavy. But these are lighter than the past ones I wore before. Once the prices come down then I shall buy them.

    Package was shipped after 48h but arrived in 2 days..very pleased. The shoes look very nice and give the high quality filling. Will se how long it will last...The size 12 looks to be on the small end...they are a bit tight on my feet...I think 12.5 would fit better (I am a size 12 guy. Maybe after they brake in they will be more comfortable.

    These are light weight and very comfortable. I use them primarily for walking. I have a pair of the 100 tube type (tubes on the entire sole) and they are good too, but I prefer the feel of the tubes on the back half of the sole only. Runners would probably go for the 100s.

    Be aware that these run a little on the snug side. Apart from that, these are some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I have another pair of blue/grey that are over two years old and people still ask if they're new.
