TLDR: These are great! Highly recommend.
This is my first pair of OAS shoes. I didn’t get a chance to become accustomed to these shoes at home. It was a trial by fire on vacation in Paris during a bit of a heatwave. There’s no ventilation on the shoe so my feet got SWEATY, but once the heat broke, and after about a week, these have been awesome! Super sturdy, great traction, comfortable inside, sharp looking! I hope they make more sneakers on this last. My feet are a tiny bit wider across the ball than most shoes and after the pandemic I find I’m completely unwilling to be uncomfortable for fashion, so I took the size recommendation from the OAS website with some trepidation, but its been perfect in length and width. One note: the white stripe on the sole is superficial and starting to rub off - so eventually that will be gone. That small aesthetic issue aside, I still highly recommend these! I’ve not been precious with these shoes and they’ve proven themselves to be more than just a pretty face. I look forward to investing in more OAS shoes in the future.
