I received my Glidekicks White Low Top Ladies Sneakers over the weekend and I am totally in love with them!!! I’ve worn them for a couple of days now, and I know I made the right choice when I bought them. Of course, not everyone has the same taste in footwear, so I’m writing this review to help you decide if this pair of sneakers is for you or not.
First things first: the packaging. When my Glidekicks arrived they were placed in a poly bag, which worried me a bit because I was used to receiving footwear that came in cardboard boxes. I mean, did the poly bag provide enough protection for my shoes while they were shipped? I immediately took the shoes out of the bag and inspected them for any scuff marks or other signs of damage, but they were in good shape. I also tested the lights right away and they lit up fine.
In terms of size, the Glidekicks fit me perfectly. I hover between a 7.5 and an 8 U.S. size (depending on the brand) so, to be safe, I ordered an 8. I’m glad I did since the shoes I received were a perfect fit — not too loose and not too snug (there’s a small space for me to wiggle my toes even when I’m wearing socks). If you decide to buy this, I recommend you to err on the bigger side to make sure the shoes will fit you.
I took a close look at my Glidekicks shoes and think they have decent quality. I’m not exactly a shoe expert, but I can tell that the shoes were expertly made (no loose threads or loosely glued parts anywhere) and that they can last for a long time. Of course, time will tell — I’m planning to wear my Glidekicks everywhere that I’m allowed to, so let’s see if they can hold up with all the wear and tear they’ll go through! I love dancing and skateboarding and walking all over the town, which means my shoes will definitely get a lot of abuse.
The best thing about my Glidekicks is their design. They look a bit like the Nike Air Force One, which is cool since they’re definitely cheaper than that. They’re white, so they match almost everything in my wardrobe (which is my I chose them in the first place). When they first arrived, I wore them with denim shorts and an orange crop top; the second day, I paired them with dark-wash skinny jeans and a black tank top with sequins. I received compliments on both days, and people were asking me where I got my light-up shoes, so I guess that’s a positive sign.
They’re also very comfortable. The shoes say they are made of manmade leather on the outside which is synthetic but a better version of it and the inside is lined with cotton fabric, which makes them very comfy. Like I said above, I love to walk everywhere, and I probably walked two miles on the first day I wore my Glidekicks. They didn’t make my feet tired and sore, which I really appreciate.
Of course, let’s not forget the lights on these led shoes! There’s a small button that allows me to easily turn the lights on and off and change their color, so I don’t need to take off the shoes just to make them light up. And the lights work well, too; I was hanging out with my friends after dinner and my Glidekicks really made me stand out in the dark. I plan to take them on a test when I go clubbing with my friends next weekend.
All in all, I can say that the Glidekicks White Low Top Ladies Sneakers are a great value for money. As long as you get them in the right size, you’ll have a sturdy pair of shoes that will complement your wardrobe.
