Melson - Chad fits perfectly

“Perfect fit” is an appropriate way to summarize the reviews for these sneakers. Many testers appreciated how the shoe gives a comfortable, snug fit on the heel but still leaves a “nice room in the toe” for movement while being “not too loose” at the same time.

Some comments praise how they easily get these on and off. The elasticity of the upper provides easy slipping on while hugging the feet perfectly so that “you don't have to worry about them just slipping off while walking.”  If there’s a minor issue, one review pointed out that there’s a “toe-bending line in the tongue” that could be problematic for some.
