Cheaply Made Shoes That'll Get Ya Some Style Points
on August 22, 2014
I know, what the hell is one to expect when purchasing shoes for $33. Yeah, that's right. When I purchased these shoes they were listed for $33 and when I just checked they were re-listed for $100! A hundred bucks for these shoes is a travesty. As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "That's outrageous!" OK, so you're probably wondering what I think about the shoes, so let's see if I can summarize:
Quality: They are pretty cheaply-made shoes and they're made in China from cheap materials. A single layer of cheap leather for the main construction, a single piece of red foam rubber for the soles, and no padding to speak of on the insole. Actually, now that I think about it, if I paid any more than $33 I would probably feel quite badly about my purchase.
Comfort: Did I mention that these shoes are cheap? Well, that cheapness flows right into the quality department, too. Not comfortable at all. That's how I'd describe them. And since they run about a half size larger than what you typically wear I'd suggest you order accordingly. Due to the aforementioned lack of padding, it's like walking on a piece of wood with practically zero arch support.
Style: :Let's cut to the chase here, folks. Why else would someone purchase a pair of shoes with a bright red sole unless it was for style points. That's the single, solitary reason I give these shoes three stars. They look boss, right? I've gotten several compliments when I've worn them, mostly from other guys (go figure) and they do get attention. Style points. That's where two of those stars come from.
Price: I don't know what happened between when I purchased them and today, but here's what I have to say about the price. They're worth the $33 I paid for them. They are, not in this universe or any other universe, worth $100.
