These are perfect sneakers for the winter months. The canvas is dense and seems to resist the winter snow gunk. The soles work well, though not exceptional by any means, in snow/ice. They look cool and provide me a great option to putting on boots for the winter.
My only problem is sizing. I wear a size 12. Period. I had to send back a size 12 of these because it was extremely short. The size 13 is almost too small as well. If I was using these to walk for miles I'd be sending them back. But as they are, they're comfortable enough for the limited walking I do during the course of a workday.

Takes a very short time to break them in (like 10 minutes of walking) and they just become instant favorites. Good sole and arch support, seems to change my stride slightly to one a bit less fatiguing ... I seem to be able to walk farther without tiring. Can't ask for much more than that from a shoe.

Very solid shoe. Thicker and stiffer than say a Converse that is may resemble. Runs large for size, roughly 1/2 size above normal. Stiffer sole so may need break in time. Great quality. Well made. Hoping for more color variations in future.

These fit just as described. They are comfortable and provide good arch support, subtle but still there. I live in NYC and these are a perfect step up for the winter and walking conditions. These give the Converse Chucks a big run for their money, they are water resistant and look like hybrid duck boots with a sneaker twist. I like them and will probably buy another pair when I wear my current ones down.

These people make the great waterproof Sorel boots, and their technology carries over to this hightop. Well made and comfortable, the waterproof soles have great traction on wet decks when I wear them when saltwater sailing. Value-priced, its a purchase I'll never regret.
