#1: There are 2 different shoes pictured in the description of this item. You get the one that shoes up in the thumbnail when you choose your color at purchase. These are the ones that have "fixed" laces. They look like real laces with no tie and are actually made of a stretchy material that allows you to slip the shoe off and on with ease. They also have two stretchy panels on either side of the heel that keep the shoe snug at the heel and give you more room for putting them on and taking them off.
#2 These shoes are cute and I have gotten lots of complements on them. They are NOT running shoes but I didn't buy them for that purpose. They are slip them on and go casual shoes. I got them for a great price and with the help of Sierra Trading Post's great customer service.
