I have two of these. That should tell you enough. (But don't worry, I got it in different colors -- I am not that guy...) Comfortable and practical. Good quality. Looks nice. It does not do my dishes at home, but that's asking too much. So it still gets 5 stars.
.. and sometimes I drink coffee. (Full disclosure) It’s practical, it’s actually comfortable, and the materials are of good quality. (I feel Kizik has upped their game from previous models that scuffed easily.) Would I buy again? Yes, I have (but don’t worry, I got it in different colors).
Overall, the shoes are nice. They look nice and are finished well. I have a high instep however and this causes the Velcro used in the adjustable tongue to come lo very time I “slide” into them. Then, I have to re-adjust the tongue. This defeats the purpose of the hands-free idea...no? Also, the shoes are cut very low at the ankle, almost uncomfortably so for me. That said, these drawbacks didn’t stop me from ordering two additional pairs.
I have been wearing Kizik for almost a year now. Because it has been a great shoe, I bought 2 more. I have the London Black that is visually, an excellent dress/business shoe, but even better, comfortable. I have the stylish New York that can pair with dark jeans and a sport coat. I'm 45, and I have young millennial business professionals asking me "Those are really stylish, who makes them?" I can wear my Kizik's when negotiing a deal with a CEO or more importantly, I can wear them on a family vacation to the beach. As I said, comfortable, stylish and worthy of being my shoe of choice during the great moments of life!
My husband has knee problems and having the ability to “slip on” a comfortable, nice looking shoe is very good. They have received many endorsements to his co-workers as well.
