Rating: rated 2 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $79.99

These shoes fit appropriately based on stated size, and are comfortable either when running (3-4 miles) or when working in the gym. The "no-tie" design for the laces is a nice feature, and stays tight throughout your workout.

However, the shoes' upper surface frays and wears out incredibly fast. It's not that the shoes become unwearable, it just that within two weeks of wearing these to the gym and using stationary bikes and situp bars, the colored (Gore-tex?) surfaces were showing loose threads and beginning to unravel in the front.

It's a shame, as they were very comfortable, but I won't be buying this style again.
