This Sneaker has it all, zip and lace entry, set your laces once and then come and go from the zip. Soft leather but withhold and support. The toe piece has support, and the footbed liner has arch support, if you wear orthotics, this foot bed can be removed and your support placed in. The fit is true. It's a great summer sneaker as the holes are all the way thru, for that soft summer coolness. The white isn't in your face bright either, it's softened off. This sneaker is a winner for dressing up or just putting on and heading to town or a walk.
