These Pumps are sold to be worn for Gynastics but so many people now wear them now out and about. They are great as men or women can wear them and are very versatile on when you can wear them. I have worn mine during the day time most but have also worn them on the beach as they are easy to walk in.
On appearance they don't look too bad, they have a long Velcro stretchy part on the front which can when you get a brand new pair irritate the top of your foot for the first couple of wear but after that it soon wears off. They come in black and white in most sizes and in the smaller sizes and kids versions they come in purple, pink and blue. The shoes also have small grips on the white sole of the shoe which makes them stand out a bit more. They are sold in Decathlon which don't have all that many stores in the UK but they do have a website so can make the company more accessible.
Price wise they are a very good price at only £4.99 which I think is really great for shoes and I have often bought a couple of pairs at once as whenever you go in store they are always selling really fast.
When wearing these shoes you need to be careful not to walk over a lot of stones as they do have very thin bottoms and literally no padding in the shoes so you feel whatever you walk along. Having said that I can wear a pair all day and not complain about how my feet hurt which I think is impressive. They are very easy to slip on and off which is good if you're in a hurry and look great with skinny jeans or leggings. However I have also warn them with dresses in the day time and they don't go that great with these I must admit. I also find that putting an insole in the bottom of the shoe helps to relive your feet so I do this with these are they are quite thin bases. After wearing the pumps for about a month or slightly longer everyday they do start to smell if you wear them with bare feet and so I often stick them in the washer and they do come out okay although slightly lighter in colour but, once washed twice I do throw them away but at this price why not?
Size wise I do find them slightly small fittings so I would go a size larger, but the good thing here is that they offer half sizes quite often which gives you the perfect fitting shoes. They are however listed in a European size guide E.G 44 instead of an 9 or 10 whatever it is.
All in all a great shoe to wear in the day at a fantastic price just could do with being more comfy for long term usage.
Summary: A great everday shoe for the casual look!
