Great, but wear out quickly.
on June 3, 2012
These lasted me about three months. Maybe.
They are super, super light weight and the canvas is surprisingly sturdy. They're well constructed and easy to slip on. There's a very free range of motion, and stay on well should you need to run for the bus. There are a lot of fun colors so far, and I've seen some Mary Jane varieties as well. Some waterproof spray makes these okay in rain, too.
The sole is made from Resalyte, which makes it ridiculously light. While that's great, it also wears down really quickly. In less than three months it wore away to the insole of my shoe. With a retail price of $60, I just don't think it's worth it.
I would rather have a heavier shoe that lasted longer than a light one that eroded in no time. Their LIV and SKX collections are lightweight but sturdier-- but I haven't seen any nice slip-ons. There is a LIV style that's a velcro Mary Jane (called 'Happy" for one color) that may work for you if you reconsider these.
