Best gym shoe ever, not for outdoors.
- Lace system
- Not for outdoors
I use this as weightlifting shoes cuz they're flat. I use them when I go to boxing gym, around house, tough exterior sole will wear out faster if used on concrete and asphalt. I think theses are the best gym shoes. I haven't worn them for water stuff, but it seems to me that these are really gym shoes more than anything else. Sole is descent but I wouldn't wear them outdoors.
p.s. Sole is same material is upper, runs true to size but forefoot will be bigger than regular shoes but that's how it's supposed to be. =)
