These are my new favorite boots. Yes, they are not sneakers! Fully lace up boots with no side zipper. I recommend taking off the wings before putting the shoes on as they get in the way a bit.
They fit true to size. I'm a 7/ 38 but I usually go with 7 1/2 to add comfort insoles. If you do want a tight fit, I recommend going up a size. These are fully lined with stitched in cushioning on the foot and the back of the heel. The inside of the toe has a soft, velvet like fabric too.
These boots have heft! A nice weight to them with a really strong, durable sole & heel. The seeker wings are thick as well. The tips of the null rays are a bit flexible so be careful.
The colors are beautiful. The wing pieces are solid so no pair chipping. The stitching and material have no loose thread nor bits.
The insole of the shoe is a hidden gem! The classic art of Metroplex versus Trypticon (but Optimus is in the right shoe).
My left shoe's top null ray shipped separated from the shoe ( the package arrived dented badly) so when I reconnected it, it was a bit loose. I added a sliver of the tissue paper in the hole and now it's nice and firm. I shook the boot real hard to be sure. I can easily remove it still if need be.
Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase. The shipping was very fast from the UK to USA.
