Both Mica and Isaak have been growing like weeds! It helps when I get shoes, boots, clothes, or food to review!
Last week Mica got to pick out a new pair of shoes.
Where to get these tennis shoes:
You can get them on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08N18KHQT. They are $46.99 on Prime. They did ship really fast.
One downfall is that they only have this color in his size. He's in a size 10 1/2, but we went with a size 11. That's not too gigantic. My dad wears size 15 1/5!
- White with Blue - Like he got
- All Red
- Blue with white soles
- Grey with orange soles - This is the one he wanted. I like that they are neutral which goes with a lot of things, yet have a pop of color.
They are breathable and lightweight. I hate when I have really heavy shoes that make a lot of noise when I walk. These are not like that. I also feel that because they are breathable there's going to be less stinky feet. Ha! I think the pop of blue coming through looks good. The laces aren't too short, nor too long.
The color section was limited, for the size we wanted. The soles don't make a lot of noise and are lightweight, but have very little traction. Traction is something I look at when I'm buying in a store. I want the boys to be able to be boys. These aren't climbing, running, or hiking shoes. For an off brand - Damyuan - that I've never heard of, they are still fairly expensive. Almost $50. Like I said, they aren't super great, with little traction.
Do you wear tennis shoes, or other kinds of shoes more?
I do like a lightweight shoe that's breathable, so I'd probably buy these even at $50. I mean, I've paid more for Nike or Adidas or New Balance and have them fall apart quickly, so just because it's brand name doesn't mean it's worth their high asking price. For walking around town running errands, it would probably be ok for every day wear, but I'd probably go with a shoe that had more traction when we are doing heavy walking, like when we travel and whatnot.
Those shoes do look nice. We spend a LOT of time on the basketball court still, so traction is my #1 thing for a shoe. I've had too many fall apart in two weeks or less. For down times though, these would be great.
