Speed and Strength Women's Wicked Garden Shoes
LOVE IT! GREAT FIT AND AMAZING STYLE!!!
I ordered on a Tuesday, and it arrived on Thursday - I was ecstatic last night! It looks great online and even more amazing when you open the box!
I got the white/black. I am 5'5" and 118lbs, and normally wear 6.5/7 sneakers or heels. I decided on buying a 7 so I can wear thicker socks during Spring/Fall (cooler) weather. I tried them on with thinner (ie: no-show Puma) socks, and a pair of thick Columbia (hiking) socks. The boots still fit great with both. With the thin socks, you have a little more wiggle room, but that's great if you like to wiggle your toes at a stop light! Seriously though, it allows for air circulation and it's great as the season warms up.
The tongue of the shoe, like any sneaker type shoe, tends to shift, so I can only recommend tying the laces tighter. Velcro snugs up the ankle, and I love that it "hides" the laces so it doesn't snag (safety hazard).
HIGHLY RECOMMEND - for the price, style, and comfort, CAN'T be beat.

Good, casual protection.
My wife really likes this shoe. It could use some different colors-such as one color around the perimeter and three or four different shoe lace choices. But for casual riding it fits the bill. Recommended.

First pair of moto shoes. My normal shoe size is 7 so I ordered the 7 and they fit great. Very comfortable. I received them in time for my 2 day motorcycle safety course. No break in was needed and never developed any sore spots.

love this riding shoe!
I knew i had to have this the moment i saw it. i waited until it came back into stock on the site and ordered immediately. I'm normally a ladies 7, and ordered so. it fits perfect. the tag inside also says "womens" unlike the picture someone else posted where it says men. sizing was true for me. maybe they changed it for the second run? i get good protection for riding around town, and I can shift very easily with these shoes. they dont look too big to me, but I wear vans normally so im used to fat shoes. the purple lines on the white sole are actually stitched, and i noticed a little lack of quality there, so dock a little. also, the laces get stuck on the velcro and start to fuzz up and shred a little. wish it had a second pair of laces, like all other shoes come with.but thats about it. only rode with them for a few hours, in cool weather, so cant say they are too hot, but i dont get sweaty feet much anyway so for me its ok. I love them and really wanna buy a second pair while they are still in stock.

Just what I was looking for
I have hunted for awhile to find a pair of boots that were stylish, comfortable and yet provided protection. These boots appear to be all that and I would recommend if you like wearing tennis shoes, they are just as comfortable as your favorite pair. Good price as well.

Great color match
Although I purchased these shoes for my wife, who enjoys being the passenger and needed a good riding shoe with minimal protection. SHE loves them. Especially, because the colors, black /purple on the shoe match the color of her riding jacket...Thumbs up!!!

Good for a first bike shoes, but....
All the reviews say something about wearing a normal shoe size of 8.5 and ordering a plain size 8 for these bike sneaks. I followed the general consensus, since I, too, wear a 8.5 for everyday shoes. I found that even with my thinnest pair of socks, my toes are still bumping against the edge of the toebox. I had to cut my nails down for it to be reasonably comfortable. Had I gone with a 9, I'm sure the shoe would have been too large and floppy for it to be effectively safe. I haven't worn them often enough to see if the shoe stretches like some of the other reviews say.
That being said, the shoe itself is of good quality: nice construction, sturdy sole, thick ankle protection (does not go higher than my ankle, though) and I absolutely love the safety-velcro strap to keep the laces tucked in. They're comfortable to walk in, they look awesomely chic and trendy for being biker shoes, and they're good for car driving as well. My only complaint is the fact that an 8 is a tad snug. A half-size would be much appreciated. The price makes this shoe a steal, so I'm willing to hang on to these and see if they stretch.

Very satisfied overall
The shoes are really cute, and very roomy (I have fat little feet). I will have no problem wearing thicker socks for fall riding weather. The one down side was that they felt pretty stiff against the back of my ankle. It may be that it is just hitting lower than my boots used to, and I am not used to the feel there. I am hoping they will soften up just a bit over time. Overall I am quite pleased with these riding shoes.
