They now use one piece of "leather," (which is so low-grade they don't show you the suede side) with one-dimensional, completely unnecessary random old-style -looking stitching to resemble the 5 pieces they'd previously constructed and sewn together all in order to resemble the old shoe. But it doesn't fool the discerning K-Swiss aficionado. We know better. We don't see the gray suede cuts.
This new (yet just as expensive) shoe is a flat, contour-less, shapeless, geriatric-looking old-people nurse, horrible, awful $85 mess made of who-knows-what. I don't know if it's leather; it doesn't say.
The old versions were all about performance and a clean classic look; these are all about embarrassing you when you open the box. If you don't cringe when you open the box, you don't know the old K-Swiss. You deserve each other.
They're all about "style" over which there is no substance. I do know that on the old pair (because my kid has an old pair her brother never wore) the reverse (interior) of the upper was actual suede; you can see it and feel it. Now...? I don't have the foggiest. It's covered in some random rubbery/grippy type of material. It's not apparently suede at all.
Gone is the spongy terry-cloth tongue. Gone is the supportive and uniform feel (meaning: they don't feel the same on each foot; one felt more supportive than the other and one rolled out to the side). They're garbage. Even Oscar the Grouch wouldn't want 'em. They stink and you don't even have to wear them.
DO NOT BUY THESE SHOES IF YOU LIKED THE ONES YOU HAD BEFORE.
the toebox on this one is narrow and low so if you have toes that need
to wiggle up and down like mine, get the wide .... I'm exchanging my
8 1/2 med for 8 1/2 wides now. Otherwise just a great looking kick around
all around go with everything shoe.
------------ If you want a heavier shoe that has a much larger toebox and is
wider ---- with
more support go for the K-Swiss Albury Ii Classic Shoe Womens
but if you do... order one 1/2 size smaller than your usual size/the Albury
runs very long...and do not order wides in this shoe / it is already very wide.
