Women's Gusto Runner
When did the trend of putting slippery flocking on the bottom of shoes start? These shoes do not have any grip, just partial flocking. ON A RUNNING SHOE! Please stop manufacturing shoes with flocking!!

I bought these online because they look very cute. They are extremely light and comfortable on my wide feet. They are made very cheaply, however; and I doubt they will hold up for long. Even the shoelace holes are not reinforced. They are just holes punched into the very thin, flimsy material.

I lucked out and got these on sale and they are so comfortable. Very flexible material and cushiony bottom, and fit true to size. I will be ordering another pair before they disappear!

SO light and comfortable!
I have wide feet, and selection is limited at most stores for us wider footed ladies. I work at a major athletic shoe retailer and I always get my shoes at Payless because they generally have a better women's wide selection. I got these last week and LOVE them. So light and comfortable! And very flexible and breathable! They compare to expensive Nike Free sneakers we sell at work that never come in wide! The midsole looks pretty thin but the sole cushion is very comfortable. Very good for everyday, training and walking. I'm not sure I would run in these. By far one of the most on trend sneakers Payless sells. Just wish the wide ones came in more colors.

I was going on a trip that required a lot of walking. As soon as I put them on, these felt like the most comfortable sneakers I ever owned. They are so light and you can feel the air going right through them so they keep your feet cool as well. They felt a little wider up front but for me, I can wear a 6 wide or 6.5 regular so the 6.5 worked great for me. One warning: mine came with super long black and white shoe laces and at the airport, my shoe lace got caught in the escalator and someone had to actually rip the shoe lace to get me out. So change to short laces or be careful!

Bought these shoes in store and...
...I ran [track] in them, walked in them, jogged in them, etc.* Honestly, the design and the comfort are near perfect; my feet were never sore after a run. However, my biggest pet peeve? They're noisy. If you walk on vinyl flooring with these sneakers THEY WILL make a ton of noise [after much use, over time]. It's annoying, honestly. Besides that, you can't really put foot powder in them, because as you walk the foot powder will come out of the front part of the shoe (the part where there's 'netting'). I put insoles in them, because I have plantar fasciitis. I believe these are my only complaints. Hope this helps.
*I've had them for almost a year and a half.
