"I work at an extremely trendy hot spot in LA and they require athletic red and white shoes. I know. While I'm waiting to make bank, I didn't want to spend tons of money on work shoes but still buy a quality product that looks and feels great. These fit the bill! They didn't have enough selection in general for women's shoes in red and white and don't get me started on the girl's! (When did pink become red exactly?) These are super comfortable and look very sharp."
