There isn't much you can say about a glass pitcher, I suppose. It is solid, gorgeous, and came without blemish.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, but not for everyone, April 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First off, I do not run in these. I bought these shoes purely for casual wear, since I wanted a laceless sneaker to slip on. Therefore, take this review with a grain of salt as I have no idea how these shoes perform when used for their intended purpose.

As casual shoes, these have several strengths:
1. They're extremely light and comfortable.
2. They breathe very well; they're perfect for hot weather.
3. For laceless shoes, they fit quite securely.

However, there are definitely some negatives that you should be aware of if you're considering buying these:
1. If the weather is cold and/or wet, do not wear these. The same ability to breathe that makes them so comfortable in the summer will absolutely soak your feet within minutes in the rain. These are not water resistant in any way whatsoever.
2. They are not incredibly sturdy. I've worn mine for about nine months now and there is quite a bit of wear. They're about halfway between a solid, sturdy shoe and a disposable paper slipper.
3. The colors are just ridiculously loud. I opted for the blue ones, thinking they'd be a more solid blue, however they're very light grey and baby blue. I can't wear these with jeans without feeling utterly ridiculous. Actually, I can't wear them with shorts either, unless I pretend that I've just come from a run. Then I don't just feel ridiculous, I am ridiculous.

I do like them, overall. I just don't find them to be very practical for day to day wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Comfortable, Though Snug, May 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been using these every day for the past month, and they're incredibly comfortable.
I'd just like to note that I found these to be a bit on the small side. My last three pairs of sneakers were also Asics, and all fit perfectly. I ordered these in the same size as those last three pairs, and was surprised to find that these were noticeably more snug.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Wallet; Bad Chain, December 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I looked at a huge selection of chained wallets on Amazon, and I eventually settled on this one for one simple reason: I wanted to be able to detach the chain easily. I'm amazed at how many chained wallets don't have this feature. Anyway, the wallet itself is excellent. It looks great and it's well constructed. I don't recommend it for credit card hoarders, however, as it's only made to hold a driver's license, two or three credit cards, and some cash.

My primary complaint with this wallet is the chain that comes with it. For one thing, it's rather short. With some pairs of jeans, the wallet doesn't even sit at the bottom of my pocket due to the chain. Also, the clasp used to attach the chain to your pants is very small. It's made to be attached to a belt loop, and not the belt itself. I find this very annoying, as pants manufacturers all seem to have different ideas about where belt loops should be placed. Finally, the chain is just not as sturdy as I'd like.

I recently bought a new chain, and now I'm totally happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks Great, Well Made, December 17, 2010

This pan looks fantastic and is solidly constructed. I was worried about balance issues due to the long handle, but I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, December 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought both a necklace and bracelet of the same cut, and I'm very happy with both. I wanted them in titanium because I hate having to treat jewelry with kid gloves. I wear these constantly: working, working out, swimming, showering, etc., and they look exactly the same as the day they arrived.

There are two reasons for which I gave this four stars instead of five:
1. Some of the links aren't closed as tightly as they could be. I have no fear of the chains coming apart; I'm talking about a few gaps of a millimeter or less. It's purely an aesthetic issue, and, really, I'm the only person looking closely enough to notice.
2. The other issue is also aesthetic. The underside of the clasp says "Japan", which I find very tacky.

Overall, I'm very happy with this bracelet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing for the price, December 17, 2010
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This chess set isn't very big (10" x 10"), but it looks fantastic for something with such a low cost. The board and pieces are well constructed, and I haven't found any flaws in my set. My only minor complaint is that the four corner pads under the board detract from the aesthetic value of the set. It is a minor complaint, though, and the set still has a five star appearance for its price.

5.0 out of 5 stars It looks really nice, December 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm quite happy with this rug, and, like the previous poster, I wish I'd gotten a bigger one. It arrived quickly and well packaged. If you're using this on a hardwood floor like I am, you'd be wise to invest in a rug pad as this rug slips quite a bit, especially after mopping.

Electrix Illumination 7770-WE Contemporary Bankers Lamp, 14 High, Curved Stem, White Glass Shade/Brass Base

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, Nice, December 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've developed a desk lamp fetish as of late, and this is one of the better lamps I've bought. I've bought a few lamps that didn't withstand the rigors of simple, everyday use, so I should mention that this lamp is well-made. My only complaint about it is that the power chord is a brass/gold color. It's supposed to match the color of the lamp itself, but I don't think it looks very good. I'd honestly prefer a simple, black chord.
