stylin, works with my weird feet, laces are terrible

I dig the retro style of these sneakers, and they're comfortable for me. I have both a wide forefoot and wear orthotic insoles, so I appreciate a roomy footbox and these work with my weird feet. The outsole is nothing special, just ordinary waffle rubber, and I'm really hoping it doesn't wear down too quickly. There's an unusual piece of plastic supporting the arch, which again works OK with my weird feet, but I can see how this might not work for everyone. Maybe this is a stability feature?

Not sure what the heel drop is, but it's fairly substantial. I would say it's somewhere in the 9+mm range. Tons of heel cushioning, forefoot cushioning is only OK. I tend to need more forefoot cushioning and would have sent these back if I didn't like the style so much (yes, I grew up in the 80s).

The flat laces are terrible and were shredded within a week.
