Great at first but shoes have a notable flaw
I love gdefyer shoes and own several pairs both for work and exercise. They are comfortable and provide ample support throughout the day. So I decided to try a pair with the velcro straps hoping that it would provide the same comfort as the lace up ones but adding more convenience and saving time. I usually wear a size 13 so I purchased the same size in the velcro shoes. The first thing I noticed upon wearing them was that they fit more loosely than lace up shoes which forced me to pull the velcro straps a little tighter to secure my shoes. And that is where I found out about a second, more significant problem. The buckles that hold the velcro straps can easily snap off over time if you pull them really tight. When I first noticed my shoes were a little too loose I wanted to order a smaller size but unfortunately they were sold out at the time so instead I tightened the straps more to makeup for the extra give in my shoes. Well after a few months one of the buckles holding the upper strap broke at the point where it is secured to the shoe. After it happened I decided to look at the buckles for both straps and it does appear that they could easily break off if you tighten them a lot over time. So if you like to wear your shoes really tight there is a good chance the buckles will snap off eventually. I'm in the process of looking for a local shoe repair store to fix it but going forward I think I'll stick with the lace up defyers from now on.
