I bought these because they are the cheapest of their kind on the market. I was immediately pleased with the lightness of this shoe, it feels really comfortable and it has just enough grip while still allowing you to spin. I would have given it 5 out of 5, except I soon realised the fabric is really not breathable. Other more expensive split sole sneakers use special breathable mesh, whereas this is just cheap polyester. It makes your feet really hot and sweaty, especially if you stay in them for any length of time. I don't normally suffer from stinky feet, but I had to stop using these after a few weeks. You may be able to wash them, but I really dislike the feeling that my feet aren't breathing properly, so I won't be buying them again. Instead I will go for the Capezio WEB shoe with mesh.
