The converse shoes came in a slim box with simple wrapping and protection.
The box itself is quite long and slim, so don't be fooled if you think they got your shoe sizes wrong for the product is made out of canvas which is a fabric, allowing it so be folded if necessary.
This type of shoe (canvas based) can be machine washed and i normally rub out the dirt with baby wipes before hand for a much more effective output.
The sole of this shoe however is quite flat, which may be uncomfotable for those who have flat feets, and much more comfortable for those who have an arc. (NOT SUITABLE AS A SPORTSWARE!)
There are vents (or holes) at the sides of each shoe which ventilates excess heat away, keeps odor away too! Hence holes are placed into the sides of the shoe, its advised not to wear it when it rains or for a walk in the beach, getting the sand off is a pain.
When in doubt in deciding the size of the shoe, its best to refer back to your present shoe's sizing - it always worked out for me.
