I bought this pair as a Christmas gift for a friend who had been wanting them for several years...he used to wear them as a kid. He absolutely loves them!! Upon opening them he immediately put them on and didn't take them off!! He actually did the "run your fastest and jump your highest" routine!! So...being the shoe lover that I am, I ordered myself a pair...mine are the red, white and blue stripe...I love them...they are a great casual shoe with jeans and shorts, they are true fit, comfortable and great to look at and I've gotten a lot of compliments on them. At that point I refer them to Onlineshoes.com!!!
