Great basic chukka. It's better than a SeaVees chukka that costs three times more. Very versatile, goes with a lot of outfits. Comfortable. Not as much support as a serious boot with say a good Vibram sole, but still pretty good. The profile is slim and lightweight, these will go with tapered pants. I'm 9.5D on a Brannock and I have 8.5 from these. They are a bit narrow in the heel, but nothing bad.
These shoes look really awesome than pictures. Glad I ordered it. Also, I'm 34 who never do skateboarding. I would strong suggest to have skateboarding shoes as they provide nice arch support, better balance and great fit. Far better than regular sneakers.
I typically wear a 9 or 9.5 and ordered these in a 9. They're perfect! They are very comfortable and the bows are super cute.
I returned the shoes because I felt the overall satisfaction was not worth $140. Here are the reasons: ? Size: I usually wear 7.5 but the size 38 was too small for me ? Insoles: They are not really cushioned, and don't give much arch support. I would have to replace them with better insoles to make the shoes more comfortable ? Width: They were too narrow, even for my skinny feet and I was not sure if they would stretch enough later on ? Design: The shoe laces are rather on the wide side, and with the top part hanging out, the shoes give the look of hiking boots
Not crazy about the little gadgets around the shaft but these shoes are AMAZINGLY comfy, great arch support and all around worth every penny!
I wear a size 8 in women's and the 6 in kids fit me perfectly I have feet that are more on the narrow side which is what made these so great. I have washed them several times, and they have been through mud and all sorts of terrain and the color has not faded from the straps or the shoes. They look as good as the day I got them. I would highly recommend.
I absolutely love these shoes! I wore them for the first time today to work. I have a desk job and don't do a ton of walking or standing. With that said, I found these shoes to be extremely comfortable immediately upon putting them on. The elastic stretch allowed my foot to wriggle in easily and they hugged my feet in all the right places. Unlike other Vionics I've purchased in the past, these shoes were not heavy. I wouldn't call them lightweight either, but sturdy is a good descriptor. I felt sure-footed walking in these due to the perfect heel height and grip of the rubber soles, which flexed comfortably with every step. While walking to another nearby building with a co-worker, she joked that I was strutting. These shoes felt THAT good! For those looking for more sizing feedback; I have wide feet (thus bought these in a wide) and due to a past surgery suffer from numbness and nerve pains in my feet. I'm very particular about my shoes and have not been this impressed with a pair in YEARS. Vionic may have just made the perfect shoe because on top of the comfort, these shoes are super cute on! I received multiple compliments while wearing to work with a pair of skinny leg black slacks. I bought these in gray and the color is really nice.
Got the gray suede. Sort of a "Washed/distressed " look to the suede, which I like. True to size in the 37.5 for me. So comfortable--feels like I'm wearing slippers. Thought the lack if arch support would bother me, but the insole is so cushioned and soft. Very supple suede.
Very loose and floppy. The fringe is all over the place. Not attractive or practical.
A little unusual looking. I wear an 8 or 8 1/2 usually. Barefoot, I'd need an 8, with socks the 9 is good. Very lightweight, but good support. Surprisingly comfortable.
