I use these as river shoes and for quick trips when I don't want to dirty a pair of socks. They look like toys, but they are durable and perfect for my use.I was concerned that they didn't come in a wide width because I cannot wear normal sneakers unless they are super wide. The toe box might seem too loose on a normal person, but for me they were perfect. If they get muddy, you can just hose them down. It beats ruining a pair of good sneakers. a perfect buy.
