flimsy laminated suede
Reviewed by ejodee from MI on Sunday, September 4, 2016
I bought these in bright blue. The color is lovely but the shoes were a huge disappointment. The sole appears substantial but it is really just a thin layer of rubber, like a dollar-store copy of Keds. They stretched out right away, could have bought two sizes smaller. The insoles came unglued quickly and flop around walking or putting the shoe on/off. There is a fabric inner liner in the toe area (only goes from tip of shoe inward an inch or so) that came loose and bunches up, toes get caught in it. To top it off, it turns out the suede is only a ply that is glued onto a BLACK bottom layer, so there are strips of blue that are peeling off. I never wore these shoes in wet conditions, didn't even give much of a workout- just wore on some workdays for a few months this summer in an office setting. They look like I used them to go hiking for years.
