My son has wide feet so its a nightmare getting shoes for him - also he is a football fanatic. The Hi-Kicks I bought him lasted 3 weeks!!!
These shoes mould to his feet, these are my sons preferred shoe. They are soft from day one, We tried other branded foot wear and they were as stiff as a board for weeks.
He hasn't had a problem with wet socks - which lets face it is a miracle recently!!!
My son puts these shoes through hell - and they are still holding up strong - with a bit of scuff repairer they are looking as good as new.
