Top critical review
on December 25, 2014
When they arrived, these shoes were extremely attractive and light, and my son reported that they were just as comfortable as his previous New Balance running shoes. However, after only a few months of moderate use (i.e. wearing as daily school shoes, not for exercise or physical labor), the uppers began to separate from the soles and holes developed over his big toe on one shoe and on the lateral side of the other shoe. Since my son is still growing quickly, we very rarely have to replace shoes due to wear, and in fact, his prior shoes had very few sites of actual wear when we replaced them because they were too small. Unfortunately, for shoes with a relatively expensive retail price, they lack quality in craftsmanship and in materials, and I cannot recommend purchasing this item, even for light use.
