These shoes may be by Nike, they even look sweet, but in reality they are so badly designed the only place for them is in the trash can, Seriously!

The boots fit well and are supportive, unfortunately they are made from a poor choice of materials including rubber, polyeurthane and foam. The combination of these leads to one thing HEAT, HEAT and more HEAT. I swear that your feet would feel cooler by walking through molten lava. Even on a cool day, the heat build up in these shoes is unbearable.

The weather in England is fairly cool most of the year round. I'd hate to think what would happen to you feet in the Mowaab Desert?

The problem lies in the fact that about 25% of the upper is heavy duty rubber, 15% is canvas and the last 60% is heavily padded plastic.

Although the tongue and the foam have small ventilation holes, these do nothing to actually take the heat out of the shoe.

Unless you are a penguin and have ultra cool feet I would avoid these shoes.
