They are really nice, I never understood spending 70 bucks on a pair of kids sneakers when u can get a really great pair for a decent price. these are sturdy and thick but lightweight. My son loves the Velcro cause he still has issues with tying. we got the orange and black and the color really really pops. They are nice enough you can wear them dressy with the right pants or casual. They fit really well and aren't too snug, everything is true to size. They are really nice sneaker.
