Superb!
4.8 / 5 from 68,223 users

Pros

  • Unbelievably comfortable
  • Fashionably chunky
  • Affordable
  • Clean details
  • Insanely versatile
  • Compliment magnet
  • Lightweight
  • Great for all-day wear
  • Hugs the foot

Cons

  • Lack of quality materials
  • Tight toe box

Verdict

Based on the classic 1998 Ozweego 3, this new silhouette is streamlined but retains the innovative tech and loud aesthetic for which the Ozweegos are known. Though intensely retro, the Ozweego looks futuristic with its prominent heel wedge (reminiscent of the Yeezys) and translucent supportive piping. Labeled under Adidas Originals, the Ozweego is appreciatively affordable.

Superb!
4.6 / 5 from 59,230 users

Pros

  • Classic silhouette that works with any wardrobe
  • Fits true to size
  • Breathable
  • Durable
  • Comfortable when broken in
  • Padded collar for ankle support
  • An easy silhouette even for a hi-top

Cons

  • Takes time to put on
  • Can take time to wear in
  • Not good in wet weather

Verdict

The Vans Sk8-Hi is the original subculture sneaker. Built as a super-padded skate shoe it was soon adopted by the punk rock scene for its large space on which to customize. Today it's not just a piece of history but a versatile and easy-going silhouette that works with almost any outfit. Not only that but it's strong enough to last years of use and abuse.
