Disadvantages: None for me
I love exercising it makes me feel alive and wakes me up first thing in the morning. I go to the gym regularly normally before lunch time and I found this sports shoes to be good for most of the exercises I do while there.
The reason I like this pair over my others is that they are light and flexible and I find that to be useful when doing step aerobics for example. They are roomy enough for me not to feel confined or restricted but they also support my instep and cushion my heel which is vital when partaking in a high impact workout. I have the pink ones like pictured above and they are very Girly which I love.
The pink thyme runs around the rim of the sole and the K Swiss badge is also in the very same matching pink which I think is a nice subtle touch. The laces are good quality, thick and strong and long enough to tie if you so wish. That said the trend nowadays is to tuck the lace into the shoes in order to not have an unsightly bow in the front. This can be done with these of course but it is not advisable when working out as that way of wearing them really doesn't secure the shoe to the foot at all. If you do wear them the fashion conscious way the pink under the tongue of the shoe will be more visible which is a plus.
Another thing that I love is the overall shape of this shoe, it is basically a very figure hugging fit, it follows the curve of my foot and adds no width of size to my foot through the fabric used. Some shoes can make my feet look broad when they are not. I have small feet and these well made shoes show that and that's something I love about them.
The contrasting grey makes the pink pop I find, and the bright as can be White also does it's part in making this a very fashionable bright sports shoe. The fact that there ate three colours to match the rest of my outfit with is a welcomed bonus. For example grey sweatpants and a pink top looks great with them.
I love the sole of these shoes, it is fantastic at gripping shiny floors such as that of a basketball court. The reason I mention this is because I need that grip when considering new running shoes. As you can see from the picture above there are lots of little groves in the sole and they really helps in giving me that secure feeling I require while working out. These also don't have that ugly flat sole to them like a lot of sport shoes do recently. They have a nice arch that not only looks good but really makes them very comfortable. They clean easy too with a damp cloth but the laces will need to be popped in to the washing machine.
These really are a fantastic light sports shoe, they are great for every day use such as walking but they are absolutely perfect for light exercise such as jogging and even harder exercise such as running.
Summary: Light, flexible, Girly, what more could I want?
