With breathable confines and an okay weight, the Cali Wedge from Puma is a fine alternative to the featured shoe. You also might be better off getting the Saucony Jazz 81 Peak if you want a non-restrictive pair overall.

Tight forefoot space

There are those who are disappointed with the restrictiveness of the Orbit's toe room. "A tight squeeze for me in the toe box," says a sneaker fan who would've given the shoe a 5-star rating had it come with a wider fit. Another sneakerhead says that it's "way too narrow in the toe box."

Stuffiness on its axis

The Fila Orbit, according to several people, has poor breathability, making it a not-so-deal pair for summer wear. It "makes my feet hot," says one of them. "They warm up a little," says another.
