Comfort in any activity
The shoes are breathable tops, the soles are ultra flexible and have some weight to them. You may be familiar with cheaper shoes that weigh nothing but these do have a little weight to them and weigh about as much as my Nike running shoes. The weight makes me feel these will hold up better than other shoes. Certainly the soles are quite flexible and can bend and move without cracking.
There are two insoles in the shoe; a top one and underneath that there is a memory foam like insert. This makes the shoes very comfortable, and helps them conform to your foot. The top is a mesh fabric and this too will conform to your foot as you wear it, making them more comfy the longer you wear them. The top is fabric, and mesh, but not at all see through. It's actually somewhat thick but breathable. You cannot see socks or feet through the shoe. It is completely opaque in that regard but your feet will not become too hot, and also not to cold. Pretty much a good temperature balance.
The color is an overall impression of blue but if you look closely they are actually striped, there are very slight black/grey stripes running from toe to heel. Shoe laces are a brighter solid blue color and there is a loop on the tongues of the shoes to lace through as you would see on any tennis shoe so that the tongue will stay in the center.
Although I have not tried yet, these look like they could be washed in the washing machine, but I would take the insoles out before doing so.JKT1832
This is the first lace up shoe that I've worn since I quit wearing combat boots 25 years ago.
I was a confused about the size on the box and in the heel of the sneakers, 12M14W, until I realized that as a unisex shoe it was the (M)ale and (F)emale size of the shoe.
The only problem I had with the sneakers was the end of the laces were inside the shoe and I couldn't tighten the laces very well. I removed the laces and relaced them. The laces now end outside the shoe and they're very easy to tighten. I also like the way the laces go through the loop on the tongue of the shoe. It makes it a lot easier putting them on when you don't have to worry about the tongue pushing inside the shoe.
The surface of the shoe is a mesh that lets your feet breathe. My feet stayed a lot cooler in the hot weather than my regular sneakers.
Most sneakers have a lot of small grooves in the sole that makes them hard to clean if you step in something. These have wider and deeper grooves like the tread of a tire, which would make them easier to clean.
The sole has a lot more give than any of my other sneakers, which I think is why it made walking a lot more comfortable. My feet also didn't get tired with a lot of walking on a couple extended shopping trips.
Only time will tell how the soles wear.SPgorilla
The Alpine Swiss Kilian Mesk sneakers are a lot more comfortable than I had expected. They are lightweight and have flexible soles. There is memory foam inserts that make them extra comfy to wear. The outer part of the shoes are mesh. They have a black under layer but you can not see it too much unless you are up close to them. With the outer part of the shoes being mesh, help keep your feet cool. That is a added value especially when your out running, exercising or just outside visiting with friends and family. I would recommend the Alpine Swiss sneakers to anyone looking for comfort and stylish sneakers.denosbaby
