"I bought these to replace my worn out leather 622 cross-trainers, after returning the 608 whose stiff ankle tops dug into my ankles. While my ankles did not hurt at all in these shoes (since these backs are flexible mesh), I was very disappointed in the toe box area not looking or feeling or acting like real leather. The website claims these shoes have leather uppers, but maybe it is just trim area. When your run your finger over the top of the toe area, it feels like smooth solid plastic/vinyl, not supple like leather (like my old 622's). It also smells like plastic and not leather when you put your nose right on that spot. The problem is that when you keep bending your feet during exercising (i.e. lifting the backs of your feet while keeping your forefoot down on the ground), the top of the toe box area does not have any "give"; it simply bends sharply inward with the crease-point pressing down onto the tops of your toes. Inside the shoe at that point is the sewn-in tongue, and during this depression you feel all the edges of where the tongue is sewed-in rubbing on your toe-tops. After a workout, you could end up with skin rubbed off the tops of your toes. I think if this area was real leather, there would be more flexibility so that it would not cause a sharp bend into your toe tops. Think of a hard cardboard that you fold - you will not get a rounded out crease but a sharp defined crease. Unfortunately, I will have to return these. I was hoping to find a leather cross-trainer that would flex and stretch to the shape of my foot, but this so-called leather does not look like it will one day ever flex and stretch like real leather would."

Yes, I recommend this product.
"This sneaker is one of the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn. I wear a D width and this sneaker has a large enough toe box to accommodate my wide foot. It's a bit pricey for a shoe I use working in a horse barn, but it is well worth it."
