"So... I have not purchased tennis shoes in years, but wanted them for a casual option this summer. SeaVees are the perfect summer sneaker, and the off-white color goes with everything (especially for tone on tone tan and white summer looks!). I do find (and maybe it's because I have not bought tennis shoes in a long time) that they look a bit wide when I look down at my feet - but friends and family have assured me this is all in my head. They do run a bit stiff at the heel - so expect rubbing if you wear without footy socks."
