The first thing I noticed when they arrived, was the nice color design and study manufacturing that seemed to have gone into its creation. When I put them on, I liked how the shoe itself was very flexible and offered expand-ability with the guaranteed swelling that always accompanies my runs. The sole itself was sturdy, but also relatively flexible, with a nice honeycomb grid that provides some added grip while you move about.
For several weeks now I have used these slipper shoes for grocery shopping, running errands, the post-race drive home, as well as during my PiYo and Yoga workouts. They have become a great go-to shoe for quick trips out to the car when I realize I forgot something (usually my morning coffee mug!) as well…
The only downside I can find so far, (and likely won’t be an issue for many of you) is that their largest size is a Women’s XL (size 10-11). I normally wear a women’s (gulp!) size 11, so without swelling, they seem to be at that almost-too-small size. When I run, I wear a size women’s 12 shoe, and with swelling, my feet become that size you only read about it in books. With that being said, I’ve still used these after a race because their flexibility to expand sideways is STILL more comfortable than the confines of my sweaty running shoes on the way home. They are also only in women’s sizes at this time.
Overall, I really enjoy these convenient shoes. They currently come in just 4 color variations, but would appeal to most anyone’s color fancy. At just under $18 each with free shipping, these would make a great addition to your fitness as well as running wardrobe.
