I really liked these mid-tops having seen them on a staff member at the Bristol SB store.
As they were no longer in stock in the store, the lovely staff member Tiffany went out of her way to help me - and was able to track them down online. She also helped me choose a new run hoody that I'm over the moon with (the sprint start hoody in grey & coral). I also managed to get the trainers delivered home for free!
They look great but as other reviewers have said, they do rub on the back of the heel where the fabric cuff is stitched to the leather upper. I'm hoping this will soften up after a few wears though as I love the way they look.

Great shoes shame about the peeling of the White rubber
the shoes fit really well as on hearing the reviews I bought a size down 6 not 7 I love the look of the boots but within a week the white rubber at the front started to peel and break off there is no wear in the shoe so this is unexpected and poor apart from this the shoe is lovely

Great and comfortable
Purchased these shoes to wear as an alternative to trainers to wear en route to work. They are so comfortable and I love the style, can't beat real leather! Also great worn with jeans, can't recommend them enough.

Funky hi top
great looking hi top. I wouldn't pay full price, but the sale price is amazing. I don't know what people expect for Â£25 !! .... Hi tops are roomy, 1 rubs a little on the heel, but the leather is soft and will give. Yes the buckle is plastic, but it's not that hard to undo. A great bargain .... You cannot go wrong at the sale price. To the point I've bought another pair for my daughter :)

Poor quality unfortunately
These have a very tricky fastening, as others have outlined but this does become easier over time, and they are a comfy pair of shoes (though come up quite large). What is disappointing is that they seem very cheaply made for the price - I have had them about three months and certainly don't wear them all the time, but bits of the white edge to the sole keep peeling off which I wouldn't expect for sweaty betty quality/price.

OK but difficult fasteneing
These were fine as a sale buy, but I would probably have returned if paying full price. The fastening, particularly of the crossover strap was frustrating and they take time and good eyesight to get on right. Getting my partner to widen the holes in the strap and hopefully that will solve the problem of piercing my fingers!

awesome trainers for everyday
I was really astonished at how comfy these are- have had loads of comments on them, and they are so versatile... work with jeans, a skirt, whatever! Totally love them :)

Cheeky sale buy
I bought these out if season as a cheeky sale buy but I love them and predict I will spend a lot if next autumn in them.

A litte uncomforable at the hock area but they should loose up. I would not recommend them though the style is very nice

Smart High Tops
I live in trainers! Trainers with dresses, jeans, for work, to go out in...
Love the style and the fit. My only small niggle is the same as a few other reviewers, in that the construction of the shoe is not that well done. One shoe tends to rub on the back of the heel, where the 'seam' is between the two fabric types. A piece of foam/plaster works for the time being, hopefully over time it will ease.
They look great on though and I get lots of compliments.
