I love these shoes so much! I bought them as I needed a new athletic type of work shoe and really loved the look of these. I am flat footed and typically wear low top converse I have 5 pairs so I like the almost bare foot feeling and these simulate that perfectly for me. I work 8-16 hour shifts 5-6 days a week so I'm constantly on my feet so being in a pair of shoes for long periods of time is a must. These are very comfortable to me and EXTREMELY light weight (sometimes I forget they're on). I couldn't recommend a better shoe than these!!! Cleaning them is a breeze also! But I do suggest bleaching the mesh part every once in a while so scrub with an old tooth brush to keep them blinding white.
