When I was looking for some new shoes, I wanted to get some that stood out in a crowd. These shoes definitely do that, and they do not compromise comfort. I enjoy wearing Zigs for everyday use but also to exercise in. The material these shoes are made out of seems to be a little thin, so I'm not sure how long they'll last. It seems like the outside will wear out in less than a year. I'll definitely be looking at these shoes again when it's time to get new ones.
