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.
I contacted Amazon right away looking to simply have them replaced. Amazon could not fix the mistake aside from offering me a full refund as they no longer had the dark grey/pink variety in stock. I was disappointed as I thought I'd snagged them for a reasonable deal (I paid $48.09 for them the first time) and I knew I'd have to shell out more elsewhere. Since she already had a ton of other gifts, I decided to lose my dreams of having these under the tree for her and wait until after the holidays to try again.
Needless to say, I'm extremely glad I did. I snagged these for $37.48 the second go around, and she's not some obscure size that would warrant such a discount. I see that the grey/pink ones in an 8 are now right back up to the full 74.99 price, so my advice to you if you're considering purchasing these is to go for it if you see them on a good discount. A lot of places do the 'LOL PERMA SALE EVERYTHANGS ON SALE ALWYZ' thing to lure you into a sense of consistent (false) 'savings', but... not so much with Amazon.
Onto the shoes themselves: She -loves- them. From the moment she put them on her feet she told me that they felt like an old comfortable pair of sneakers. They're flexible right out of the package (she said a lot of shoes are rigid in the toe box and need ample breaking in) and seem to be made out of good quality materials. The tread pattern looks very aggressive and useful for trail activities.
I'm used to wearing both steel toe and winter pac boots; when I pulled these out of the box, they felt lighter than a pair of my socks. She hasn't had a chance to do so yet but has said that these will be great for exercising as a result. I should note, however, that I can't imagine what a pair of normal width ones would look like as even the wide width variety looks very narrow. My girlfriend was a little skeptical upon visually inspecting the width but said they felt perfect once she got them on. So if you don't have super slender feet, I'd highly recommend getting the C/D width.
I'll update in the spring when she'll get some outdoor use out of them. A thin pair of mesh athletic shoes just aren't going to cut it for a Minnesota January, running or not.
