Possibly the most comfortable sneaker I've ever owned.
on March 13, 2014
First let me say, I am not an athlete by any means. I have all the best intentions, but if you're looking for a "This sneaker holds up to the most killer workouts" sort of review, you probably want to keep looking.
I primarily bought this shoe in the hopes that I can get back into shape after a few years of dealing with the usual combination of post baby weight, back injury, being too lazy to avoid getting to the unhappy weight I've attained... My plan is to get on the treadmill, get in the habit of doing my Jillian Michael's DVDs, and possibly get through a 5K without wanting to die. I'm a busy working Mom and Wife, and I want to set realistic goals so I can be a healthier, happier, better me.
Having started NONE of that, and only having walked around in them casually for a couple of weeks, I will say that the sneaker feels BETTER than having nothing on my feet. It's super lightweight, and doesn't feel clunky at all. So far my foot feels supported, and there's no pinching or rubbing of my toes. In some sneakers I sometimes get a pulling/ache along the inside of my arches, and haven't experienced that with these (yet). So as far as comfort goes, these shoes are truly fantastic and I would buy them again in a heartbeat. In addition, they're really cute.
Disclaimer: I should note that I have awkwardly sized feet that tend to be wider in the front, but narrower in the back, so the fact that this pair fits me so well may not be a true indicator for those with 'normal' feet.
I will update my review, once I've had the shoes a while longer, and I've had a chance to give them (and me) a little workout.
