    Promising review: "I love patent leather and a low-heeled pump, so this shoe was meant for me. It’s stylish and comfortable. I wear them to work and can wear them all day long.

The carrying case is nice. They come with a window sticker, cloth draw string case, cleaning cloth, and little witty card. Also, I have a big head and these fit well without digging into my skull." —jay

    Promising review: "I do a lot of at-home workouts with lateral jumps and squats and stuff like that. These shoes stabilize me much better, which is exactly what I was looking for. I do really like the mesh as well because it lets my foot move around and I don't feel like constricted at all. The arch is positioned in the most perfect spot for my foot." —Paul H.

    Promising review: "My son bought this shirt first and I couldn't believe how nice the quality of this fabric was. It has a softness to it, brushed cotton I would say. What I liked the most is the thickness. Thin white shirts tend to look grayish and this looks like a nice, crisp white shirt. Also it's fitted, so it hugs the body. I liked it so much that I bought one for myself." —Bpiq

I saw a couple reviews where people complained about the small plastic piece for the back of the earring, but I have had zero problems with them falling out or not holding! I have literally worn them like every day since I got them." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This sweater is soft, roomy, and warm without being stifling. It is my go-to sweater and I own it in three colors. It does pull, so be mindful of how/ where you wear it (the sleeves are baggy and can get caught), but that fact hasn't caused me any headaches." —Mallory Waldmiller
