These shoes weren't made for walking
on March 20, 2013
Yes these shoes are AWESOME looking, but are really not made for walking, more like sitting in a library and looking cute while pretending to read Proust.
"A grippy rubber..." is "kind of" a lie. It could be that I was wearing these on the Boston sidewalks in the winter, my fault yes, but there is no grip, not even on non-ice days, and I was walking in doors. In fact the sole had a soft thin layer of some kind of felt or something. Which was excellent for slipping around on hardwood floors.
And the sole is thin. I had a hole in mine in about two months, which made me sad, but hey, you get what you pay for. Am I right?
Like most things in Boston, they had potential, but fell short of any promises. So, I gave them two stars. Because they are pretty kick ass looking. They just aren't made to be kicking ass for very long.
