These looked great the first two times I wore them...until the cheap metal buckle broke. I had to take them to a shoe repair place to have the strap removed on both shoes. The shoe repair guy also noted the heel of the shoe does not sit level with the sole of the shoe resulting in an uncomfortable gait. He's also sanding that down so the shoe is more comfortable for walking. Don't do it.
Overall its fine but I have to push really hard to wear the shoes. Once done its comfortable from inside. Also the base makes loud noise while walking on road or non-carpeted area. It would be great if base would have been of rubber.
