I love it though it is somewhat smaller
I love it though it is somewhat smaller. The laces didn't go all the way up so had to use another lace to complete it. Still was ok regardless. I got lots of compliments!!!

I actually like these shoes but I do have a few things ...
!!!!PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT PURCHASING THESE SHOES!!!!
I actually like these shoes but I do have a few things I would like to discuss about them
1st I would like to say I purchased the white shoes and was very disappointed when the shoes both came with pretty large yellow stains. Currently I'm trying to get them out but it's an extra step I shouldn't have to take so I deffinatly don't recomend this particular color. If your wanting to use them as Halloween accessories it would be okay but I was wanting to use them as actual shoes the I could walk around In.
2nd I have fairly large calfs so the tongue Barely fits to fully close off the shoe. The widest part of my calf is about 15 inches if yours is any larger I don't recomend these shoes at all. But once on they do look awesome
3rd I read the reviews and purchased the shoes a size larger than I normally would and that allowed the shoe to fit properly. So deffinatly GET A SIZE BIGGER. If I hadn't they would not have for at all.
4th the laces barely made it to the top of the shoe. I realize it has a lot to do with having large calfs so I don't find that to be a big deal at all worst case scenario I have to purchase longer set of shoe laces
5th I was worried when I purchaced these shoes that they would not fit. I have wide feet and when I received them I was pleasantly surprised to find they fit purfactl
Over all I recomend these shoes just not in white! if it weren't for the stains I would have given a 5 star review.

Happy with my (slightly snug) size 10 blue sneakers!
They came with blue laces as well as white, which was awesome. The fabric is flexible enough to allow for a somewhat custom fit over the length of the calves. Flexible enough for my body, anyway. The tongue is just barely wide enough for my calves.
How I Chose My Size:
I tried on all my existing closed-toed shoes, which consisted of several sizes ranging from American 9.5 to 11, and one European size 41 shoe. I noted that the size 11 shoes were all slightly large, and went with the 10 instead of the 9.5 because product reviews said they run small (as of this writing, there is no 10.5 option). The shoes are a bit snug right now, but this is the same canvas material on my other shoes which stretched out over time, so I think they will be perfect for my feet after a few wearings.
Negative Notes of Interest (why not 5 stars?):
-Like someone else, I received laces that are too short. I solved this by lacing them up every other hole. It looks just fine as far as I'm concerned (see attached photo), and functions well.
-The fabric and stitching are cheap. They look okay from a distance, but I foresee repairs in my future.
-The soles are covered in some kind of fuzz, as shown on the page. This fuzz makes them very slippery, so until I rough them up, they won't be safe for dancing and walking will require care.
-Even though these are a pretty royal blue, the zipper on the instep is black. If they manufacture black zippers on all their colors, it could be even more weird on other patterns.
-The shoes arrived folded and squished into a tiny box. That's great for shipping, but they have some weird creases in them that will take a while to wear out of the fabric.
-These shoes have clearly been worn before. Not much, but enough that I can tell. I don't particularly care enough about it to return them, but it's still annoying.

I really wanted to love these shoes and I could if they were not ...
I really wanted to love these shoes and I could if they were not defective, or at least didn't look as if they were used and if the seller had a better response to my concerns than it's AlumiGogo's responsibility since they dispatch the item(!) but unfortunately I have to say, I am not happy with my purchase and this one is not something you can detect in review pictures. They can look so good in the pictures but dirty, messy, and stained in person. Also, if you are lucky and your pair does not have weird yellow stains or spots, you will have to go ONE FULL SIZE UP to get the right pair for yourself. These sneakers run SMALL. So, in case the cheap price tempts you to buy a pair, go up a full size.
The shipping, fulfilled by AlumiGogo, take as long as promised/expected and the item arrives nicely packaged. However, the horror awaits inside. The boots come unlaced so you will have to do that yourself and fix the right tightness so you can simply zip up/down (yes, there is a zipper which is why they should have arrived laced up). The item was supposed to be brand new but they arrived with dirt-like spots on the white toe box and weird stains inside the boots. These stains are obviously manufacturing glue or something of that nature and the other stuff may very well be sign of use. However, when I contacted the seller, they rudely responded in a couple of sentences that since the shoes are dispatched by AlumiGogo, the site should take responsibility and that I should contact them. Smart, right? I am not wasting all that time for 9.99 bucks. This was outrageous and dishonest. However, if I hadn't noticed the issues or was so lucky that my pair was flawless, I would not have known how terribly the seller treats their customers. With all the appearance issues, these sneakers look great in photos so DON'T BE FOOLED. HORRIBLE MATERIAL is used and well, the shoes may be used. I have attached two types of shoes demonstrating this contrast or misrepresentation.
The material is extremely of LOW QUALITY and super cheap. the stains seem to be of glue type nature and something resulted from a bad manufacturing process or poor quality material. The shaft of the sneaker boots feel like paper and there's a smell stemming from it. You cannot get more than a couple times use out of these shoes anyway. They also run small, one full size. I usually wear a size 10 US. I ordered them in a size 11 and they fit like the usual size 10. So I definitely recommend going a full size up if you like to throw away the 10 bucks that's bothering you so much (lol). Again, maybe you could get some prop-type use out of this product but that is about it. The material is extremely cheap, the smell is horrible, and they run small. Adding to that, the shaft can be a bit too snug no matter how much you loosen up the lace, which tells me that it's an issue of design. You really can't walk in them comfortably, no matter what size or how tight.
While they look deceitfully good in pictures and kids may love to wear it (like I did with a short tutu and denim crop top- feeling like a hip doll), these sneaker boots are not made well, and poor quality material has been used in their making. The state in which the new shoes arrived, tells me that the standards of health and safety were not used in the manufacturing process and this makes me scared for my own health if use them for a long time (as if they'd last). To add insult to injury, the seller pays no attention to the customers' concerns and tries to escape the responsibility by blaming AlumiGogo! I did not even receive a cold business apology for heaven's sake. They are extremely uncomfortable to walk in, even though I ordered the right size, as the poor paper-like material does not allow for much movement in your legs- you will have to walk like a robot. Altogether, I had an extremely disappointing experience purchasing this product from this seller, and I will not be a returning customer.

Cute and chic shoes!
My daughter saw these shoes online and just had to have them. When I first saw these shoes online I thought they were cute, but was afraid they would look too gawky and may be a little too bright. It turns out I was completely wrong. They arrived on time as the seller had promised. Seeing these shoes in person makes a big difference. They were really cute once my daughter put them on. It turns out they were not too bright and definitely were not gawky. They fit her perfectly. These are super cute and well made shoes.
My daughter likes to wear them with almost anything in her closet. She even tried to sleep in them the first day she got them! Everyone compliments her on them when she wears them out in public. She says they are also comfortable to wear, which is very I,portent to me when buying a new pair of shoes! She has had them for over 4 months now and they are still holding up very nicely. She cleans them regularly and has not had any stains or dirt she couldn't easily wash out. Cleaning them is a breeze. The seams are still strongly sewn together and the soles of these shoes are still in great shape. These are not cheaply made shoes, they are very well made to last quite a while! The fabric the shoes are made out of is not thin, it is a very thick fabric and has been very durable.

Very pleased. Clean. Perfect.
I ordered 3 pairs. For me and my daughter.
I usually order a size up on any of these converse style sneakers. I take a 9 but ordered a 10 and I am pleased with that. My takes a kids girls 7 but I got her a woman's 8 and it's perfect. She's 12.
A lot of the reviews said the laces didn't reach. But they did for me. It came with 2 sets of laces. Black and white. Other reviews also said they came dirty. I ordered a b/w zebra pair, a leopard print and a b/w plaid sort of pattern. All were clean and new with no scuffs.
I haven't worn mine in public yet but my daughter had and she has gotten several compliments and inquiries about them. They're very unique and for 5.99... You can't beat it!

Very cute shoes!!:-)
After reading the reviews I really didn't know what to expect because some were positive and others were negative. However, when I received them today and saw them in person I was just amazed!! These are actually really cute sneaker boots!! I ordered my regular size 7.5 and they fit just right. No dirt or stains on mine as others have complained about. A few loose strings here and there but nothing that I can't fix myself. They were not laced so I had to lace them but I was surprised to see that there were not only white laces but an extra pair of black laces as well. They are also comfortable. Which is a must for me. I do however agree with other reviewers that the bottom could be somewhat slippery. So I would be very careful walking in slippery areas when wearing them...but other than that I have no complaints and at only $5.99 the price just could not be beat!! I have NEVER seen brand new shoes priced so low!! Especially shoes I really like. I liked them so much I have already ordered 2 more pair in different colors. I am very happy with my purchase, Love them!!:-)

ehhh, not what I was hoping compared to what I had.
Well I'm glad I got my pair for around six bucks instead of paying $10 . I might use them a couple times but they're nothing to brag about I had once owned the big name brand pair of these that started with a C and they were so well-made and comfortable when I opened up the package the first thing I noticed is all these little strands of string hanging all around the shoe so already I can tell it's not gonna last too long . But if you like this sort of thing and don't plan on using them a lot I guess six dollars isn't so bad . I'm glad I didn't order the three pairs I wanted all at the same time because now I can get something else that I really want . I'm definitely going to get different laces, I still haven't figured out what I'm going to wear them with when I tried them on it looks like a lot of excess material in the back that was really wrinkly no matter how much or how hard I laced them up . This is something that you're either going to like or just not care for. I hope I do find a use one day for them if not they're going in the next garage sale at least I didn't spend a lot of money .

Better than anticipated!
I bought these for my daughter to wear as part of a Harley Quinn/Star Wars crossover cosplay for an upcoming Comic Con as well as for use on stage for her guitar performances. She's 12, so comfort, practicality, and age appropriateness was important. I got them in black with the red laces and stitching and in a size nine, because my kid is part AlumiGogo and already high school basketball player sized.
I was actually pleasantly surprised by them. For the price, they are much better quality than expected. The canvas is heavier duty than the Converse shoes that I have, and they were fully lined. The zipper is super helpful, and there was more than enough length in the laces. I simply skipped every other eyelet when lacing these up. I also liked the inclusion of extra laces in black. That allows for some flexibility, and it'seems a nice touch. The stitching was well done, and the boots don't look cheap at all. I would buy these again. In fact, I may get a couple more pair for her in other colors.
According to her, the fit is good, and just as comfortable as her tennis shoes. Although, if you have wider feet, I would recommend ordering a size up.

Great stylish sneakers
Love these shoes! Really cute on and zip down the side so you don't have to unlace them each time you wear them. I wear a 10 1/2 but there are never half sizes, so I ordered 11. Fit perfectly. I also bought a pair for my daughter and went a 1/2 size up and they fit, 8 1/2. I bought the black star and the black and white without the WB beside the name. Not sure if this made a difference in sizing but will be ordering more colors so will see if there is a difference. Also, the black and white did come with some dirtiness but I realized it was not dirt but glue, probably from adhering the sole. Shoddy, but them being so cheap I can't really complain. I just cleaned them up so my daughter could wear them.
