Well, the shoes are very comfortable, and look really good on. However, I don't think the manifacturing quality is that good. My shoes started breaking fairly soon, with the heel becoming detached from the shoe - this caused me to twist my ankle a few times, which of course made the damage to the shoe worse. Overall, I'd say the shoes are fairly cheap and cheerful, but not something you should consider if you're looking for a sturdy shoe that's going to last you a while. Perfect for sporadic wear, but not for day-to-day...the manufacture of the shoe just can't deal with daily wear (which is unfortunate).
