I normally purchase Converse shoes, but saw these Skechers and loved the design.
However, I had a major problem with the 'lip'/sticking up tag at the back of one of the shoes. Maybe it is just my feet, but this tag dug into the back of my right foot for the first few weeks. However, putting a plaster on the spot eased the friction and my feet soon got used to the shoes.
Overall, they look exactly like the picture and are comfortable to wear. They give good support and grip when tackling wet or frosty cobbles!
