I just received these from the mail today and I loved them more at first sight! They look like regular sneakers in that the wedges are discreetly concealed, a plus in my books =). They look very well madecraftmaship and material wise. The only minor glitch I could say is that they weigh a bit heavier than your average shoes. However, once you put them on and walk around a few times, you tend to forget about the weight factor. Oh, did I mention that they also feel very comfortable despite them being wedges =). I think I could walk around in these for a few hours though I have yet to try. And if you decide to purchase them, I do recommend sizing down because that's what I did and they do fit perfectly. Overall, they are a great buy!
