I purchased my first pair of these in white during the summer of 2014 and they're still in perfect shape. I decided to buy another pair in beige and the quality of the item was exactly the same as last year. No shortcuts, quality creep or nasty surprises. Perfect fit and ultra comfortable right out of the box. I just love them. Excellent cushioning and perfect height. My only quibble, and it's relatively minor, was the black sole with the beige shoe. I would have preferred something lighter. Still a keeper and 5 starts for the excellent quality and price.
