While they have a pleasing exterior design, it doesn't take much inspection to realize the interior is severely wanting. The fabric material of the front part of the collar is merely glued (insufficiently even) inside the mesh wall just below the top eyelet of the shoe. And that is all there is for "lining" in the foot chamber. That means every time you remove your foot you are dragging it against that edge which on my pair had already begun to separate. It would only be a short time before that fabric becomes even more loose, worn and/or torn. It really would not have taken much effort to run a securing stitch down the edge of the only lining this shoe has.
The insole while somewhat contoured has very little give to it. I don't see this shoe lasting long or being entirely comfortable. I understand now why this sneaker is in the lower-to-middle price range; it is mainly a mesh upper on an adequate sole
It gets three stars because it was sharp-looking from afar, the gray was a pleasant shade, it came with two sets of laces, and the price was decent. But there is more to a good piece of footwear than that.
