                    I use this product to play tennis and run. The great thing about this product is it's very comfortable and lightweight. It's also pretty durable. Need to come in more colors and need to upgrade the durability.

                          I use these shoes for extended times of wear. I even wear them playing golf.
                          they are comfortable. Well built. And look good.
                          I have very particular feet. I usually have to change shoes every couple of hours. But with these I have been able to wear them for an entire days activities.
                          I am a 280 lb. guy with happy feet.
