I bought these on clearance. The pros: unbelievable comfort, aesthetic looking, they work well for running, they can easily be converted to a slip on with the bungee shoe laces. Cons be very careful tightening the shoe laces because it can damage the material holding the shoe laces, the shoe laces add very little to the shoe as the shoe is almost a slip on without them, they run wide. If you have a narrow foot like me this could be a problem especially since the laces can't be tightened significantly. Overall though the shoe is worth the regular price and was a steal for the five dollars I purchased them for. Minus the one star because the shoe laces can't be tighten very far at all without causing damage to the lace holes. Otherwise great shoe.
