    Not impressed

    Got really bad blisters on both feet from these. You expect it with something like boots but it's the first time I have had this with trainers. Vibram stickers both came off on the first few walks.

    Think they could do with some more padding around the heel.

    Seems like they are generally low quality.

    Soles too Hard and Uncomfortable

    I found the soles too hard and uncomfortable which I only really fully appreciated once I had worn them outdoors. Because I had worn outdoors I felt I could not return them.

    I tried to persevere with these cross trainers but I have landed up with plantar fasciitis ( a very painful injury to the tissue that runs underneath from your toes to your heal )

    As somebody who used to run a lot, it surprised me that a person can actually run in these shoes let alone walk in them because the soles are soo hard.

    To say something positive: The shoes seem to be well made, robust and do keep wetness out if your walking on damp grass. The shoes have a strap to hold the toggle so it does not flap around, a nice feature.

    So for me the shoes were an expensive mistake that injured my foot.

    Top Schuhe für weichen Untergrund

    Für Läufe in Wald und Wiese perfekt. Für harte Untergründe auf längeren stecken unangenehm, da keine Dämpfung. Also genau wie erwartet. Dazu sehr gut verarbeitet. Super Schuh.

    Great Trainers, great company

    This was my second pair of running trainers. The first pair lasted well until the sole became damaged and started letting water in (admittedly this was after a fair amount of wear and tear, but not as much as I would have expected). I contacted WVS and asked if something could be done. They replaced the trainers with a new pair. Amazing!

    The trainers themselves are comfortable and to be honest, I use them as my general purpose footwear. They are good for sport, although I do find the method of tying not quite as good as laces. They are robust, look good and responsibly produced. The price is fully justified.
