"I absolutely love the look of the NYLA sneakers I received. I've never been much of a sneaker girl but these are very stylish and comfortable. When I first got them in the mail I was a little turned off by the fact that the white sole wasn't so white, as if it had been worn already but it still had the new shoe smell so I looked passed it. Not to mention I was leaving for a trip in two days and had no time for an exchange since I was planning on wearing them on my trip. I was initially a little confused and tried to put them on as you would regular sneakers but it was much simpler. No need for incessant shoe tying, the zipper does the trick. While this shoe is cute and comfortable, it is not necessarily the shoe to wear for running errands in warm weather. I tried it and this faux leather shoe will have your feet sweating like no one's business. There is no ventilation with the shoe zipped up. Your fabulous look will turn south when that new shoe smell is gone and the funk begins to rise. Beware but be fabulous."
