Not exactly what I was looking forI bought these shoes online, so I did not try them on. I have been wearing Saucony for a couple of years, so I didn't think it would be an issue. I received the shoes, which are just gorgeous, and put them on. My first concern was the fact that the tongue is attached to the sides of the shoe, so you can not pull it up to loosen the laces any further. It also makes it difficult to put the shoe on without pulling on the back to pull it up. I am worried that this will break down the back of the shoe faster. Once I got the shoe on, I walked around in them to see how they felt. They were light as a feather, which was nice. The top of the shoe is stretchy, so it makes for a snug fit. At first, I really liked this, but after wearing them for 10 hrs at work, it feels too tight and like they don't stretch enough. I have a high arch, which may contribute to the tightness on the top of my foot. I have been wearing these shoes for almost three weeks, now. They are great quality, and the material is sturdy. I think they would be great shoes for the right person, but if you have semi-wide feet and a high arch, they may not work for you.
