What a great pair of shoes! i don't like wearing shoes, but wearing these sidewalk surfers feel like your walking barefoot. they are super comfortable, with or without socks. the only thing i wish they had would be more air holes in the sides for for more airflow, (they have small holes along bottom of the sides to breathe)but even without the air holes, they don't make my feet as hot as regular sneakers do. these shoes are worth every penny. on sizing, i got one size smaller then i usually wear and they fit perfectly. and the best part of all? everything's made of recycled materials, even the bag they arrive in.
