Having already owned a pair of Coolers I thought these were a much improved, more funky version of my old favourites. Not so sadly. These are certainly better looking but what they make up for in the looks department they lack in the essentials - comfort! (A lesson for life maybe?)They are a very scant size 8 and there is a horrible ridge in the toe area where the insole meets the toe which is most uncomfortable. Kept them because as they are made of felt and I thought they may go a bit baggy, which they have but the ridge still hurts my toes.Come on Coolers, you can do better and for £17 you should do!
