I have a pair of these and its been a great pair. i recall that i bought my pair at Untitled over on Clark and Diversey. I was hanging out with my friend Nikki and that shoe just so happened to be on sale for like $35. So i bought it right away. Its usually great during winter. Other shoes make my toe numb but this shoe doesn't. I guess its all because this shoe was sort of built for the winter and so the exterior part of the hoe is very strong from taking the cold air into the interior of the shoe. Plus if a shoe looks good when you are wearing shorts and pants. Thats a plus. Well a plus for me that is. I'm very particular when i buy pairs of shoes. They have to be compatible with any clothes i wear and when i wear shorts and pants.
