    Promising review: "I normally don't like wearing tennis shoes all day because my feet tend to sweat in them, then swell when I take them off. These are the best brand of tennis shoes I have ever owned. They feel wonderful on my arthritic feet, and my feet breathe in them all day, so they never sweat and don't swell up when I take them off. I bought a second pair in white. Well worth the money. All my other tennis shoes are going to Goodwill." β€”SBoo

    Promising review: "I'm a big fan of Hot Chocolate Design shoes so when I saw these on their Instagram I had to have them! Boy am I satisfied! They fit very snugly, which I love because so many flats do that thing where the back pops up and down when you walk, leaving bruising and skin tears on your heels; these stay in place as you walk. Totally worth the purchase." β€”Dayna Richardson

The shoes also come with a charger for each shoe. The shoes have different options, the basic colors, but you can also set it to where the colors will switch (red then blue then green etc.). There is also a flashing bright white option which I like the best at parties. I really recommend these. Such a cool concept!" β€”R B

    Reviewers say these run small, so to be safe I suggest ordering one size up.Β 

    Promising review: "Love these shoes! I saw them in-store at UO but they didn't have my size. Obviously, I turned to Amazon because what doesn’t this site sell, and lo and behold, y’all had it. I try to pair these with almost every outfit because they’re so comfy and stylish! Recently went to Philly, where I had to walk everywhere because we didn't rent a car and these were only pair of shoes I brought (I travel light). These didn’t cramp up my feet at all as I walked over seven hours daily over the course of five days. Definitely recommend!" β€”Alli J

    Promising review: "So perfect, they’re like magic! You need to keep in mind how these boots are meant to be worn, though. They are slouch style; not intended to fit over your calf. The circumference is about thirteen inches, very small. If you are very small and have a hard time finding boots that look right, these would be a great choice if you wear these over your calf. For most of us, you have to manually slouch these boots as you zip. Don’t feel bad if they don’t fit over your calf, slouch them as they are shown on the model in the pictures. These are very well made and very worth it!!" β€”Shane Peters

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in sizes 5–14 and two styles).Β

    Promising review: "I admit upfront that I haven't worn any sneaker except Onitsuka Tigers since 1976. Sure, I've tried a few other brands over the years (Puma, Adidas) but I always take them to garage for my mowing shoes. The reason...I love the fit and style of this product. I have owned about every style Tiger has made over the years and the Mexico 66 is a great shoe: lightweight, thin sole with good tread, low profile, quality design, and long lasting." β€”JazzMan

The moment I slid my toes into the gill of the right bass, a unicorn neighed, a dolphin smiled, and I finally believed it is in fact not butter. On a scale (literally) of 1–10, I give these majestic beauties an 11. The only suggestion I have is that they make a cleat and heeled version." β€”Rachel Eck

(Also easy to find LOTS of cute coordinating shirts!)" β€”Erin R.

    Get them from Soludos for $139 (available in sizes 5–11 and in three colors).

    The mixed media boots with taupe-colored velvet and snakeskin accents and black heel

    Promising review: "These are amazingly beautiful boots. The pictures do no justice to their beauty. Mine arrived quickly and I was so awed and enamored with their look and quality I ordered the other two colors right away. I wore the champagne color already and have received rave compliments. The black boots are to die for. Haven't worn them yet, but I can hardly wait. The snake print pair are true charmers. Recommendation: BUY these boots while you can! Oh yeah, they fit true to size and feel comfortable while wearing." β€”Carla Branscomb
