Rated 4 out of 5 by SheerLuk Comfortable shoes
With most shoes, I go through a break-in period where I get blisters on my heels...even with sneakers. These shoes arrived just before we left for a vacation where I did a fair amount of walking...and I never had a problem. They are so comfortable, I do recommend them.
There are a couple of cons that might affect the buying decision for a small group of people. First, they have a very pronounced odor. It's pleasant (i.e. new leather and rubber type smell I suppose) but if you're sensitive to odors it might get to you. I've had the shoes for just over two months and, while it has diminished significantly, I still notice it on occasion,
The shoes make noise, or squeak, when you walk. This would probably vary by wearer. I'm a male...about 250 lbs...I'm imagining for someone lighter, the noise might not be as apparent.
Finally, the shoelaces don't last very long. One broke after about 6 weeks and the other after 10. Obviously, if you tend to wear your shoes loose you might get more life out of them.
As I said, I'm guessing these minor negative points will only be a concern for a small group of buyers. Overall, I'm very pleased.

While these are good-looking sneakers, they lack proper cushioning in the soles and heel. The laces are cheap and will no doubt break in the near future. They are over priced to say the least.

Wish I had seen the other pre-existing review before ordering! Squeaky to the point of being obnoxious and distracting. Will have to send back.

I ordered these shoes and returned them because they were so squeaky. The replacement pair is just as bad. Never had a shoe make so much noise.
