Great shoe but too narrowI was very impressed with the build quality and materials of this shoe. However, it was way too narrow for me and caused me a great deal of pain in my big toe and the ball of my feet. I was saddened to have to return them. I wish that they would come in a wide size. That is the only reason I didn't give them a 5-star rating.

Good looking shoesGood fit out of the box. Breaking them in playing pickleball and the have good feel and are light weight. They seem a little stiff, but are wearing in as expected.
