Runs VERY large - good feel to them, a little cheap looking
on August 16, 2016
I bought these in the red/black trim. These are very comfortable indoor soccer shoes. I don't think they will hold up incredibly well but should suffice for a year. They are very reasonable priced so I don't think you can compare them to something that costs twice as much for durability.
They absolutely run large. I consistently wear a 9 1/2 in a sneaker and indoor soccer shoe and sometimes a 10. As with Diadora, Kelme seems to be cut a little large. I sized down 1/2 size buying a 9. for wearing in the yard of hanging around that is fine. Was I actually using these for indoor soccer and wanted a snug fit I'd probably have gone a full size down and bought an 8 1/2.
I probably have a thumb's width between the end of my big toe and the front of the sneaker. That's like an inch. Again for hanging around fine,
So if you consistently wear a size and just fit into that size, you may be fine with 1/2 size down. If you wear your sneakers anything less than like a glove, I'd go a whole size down. I know that sounds like a lot, but not with these.
As far as comfort, they feel nice, very light, no real support or padding though.
Look-wise they are much brighter than pictured. I actually like the way they look on the product page, a slightly dusty look on the black portions. I will have to get these dirty soon! The black looks cheaper than in the photos, The red is pretty bright - almost a pink hue in light. Once they get a little dirty they'll look better. The red areas of the shoe have a very cheap plastic/vinyl look to it.
For the price they are quite nice. Not quite as nice looking as the photos.
