"nice sneaker, the color is a perfect happy shade of orange, love the striped orange and white laces too! the shoes have that new shoe smell, not as bad as some new shoes i've had. i usually wear 8/12-9, ordered the 8 1/2. length is fine, but shoe feels a little snug, i did loosen the laces and it was more comfortable. they just have to be broken in. happy with purchase!"
