"I really like the sandle / athletic shoe crossover quality of this style. I had purchased Privo brand shoes for the same reason in the past. Unfortuneltly, I found that they were overpriced, considering they wore out quickly and the color faded almost immediately. We will see with this brand which is more affordable and appears to be of good quality. The style is a little different, in that it forms more around your foot and looks less trendy than Privos. They are very comfortable and light and could be used as house shoes as well."
