I am not too into the clear see-throughs look mostly because I do not see me looking through my sneakers and looking at my feet/toes or socks.
BUT these are different. I don’t know why for sure but they are. Maybe its their low profile or something. Somehow these sneakers has a new edge appeal… a sort of East Village – slash – Williamsburg look. And with solid color socks these things really rock.
The comments on the sneaker on the site were mostly positive except for one or 2 stating that the sneakerwas pretty hot (hot as in uncomfortable as in “my feet are boiling in these sneakers”).
I forgot how much they wanted to charge for it (I actually took a look at the Journeys page a couple of weeks ago), but I am sure they cost more at eBay.
