I had them circa 1996, and they blistered my heels every time I wore them. They never wore in. I don't know if they have updated them subtly since, but I am put off buying them again for that reason, even though I still love the look of them.
Did Disneyland for 2 days for me, fresh out today the box, no wearing in. They come up big, so size down. I bought the kids ones rather than the adult cause there was 40 quid in the difference, but I noticed that the adult's women's had an arch suppport that this kids size didn't - I had both on side by side and I preferred the adult colour and was happy to pay the extra but found th arch support uncomfortable.
I have a black 'suede' pair, ( I got them at JD in the kids section) i usually take a size 6 but I got these in a size 5 and a half, they must be slightly bigger fitting. Sometimes the material of the trainer can make a difference to the size that's why I tried the suede. They are, IMO, really comfy, not tight, no pinching, feels like I'm wearing comfy slippers!
I have glittery black suede ones. Mine were a bit stiff to begin with but softened up in a few wears and are now super-comfy. I have small, wide feet and find Adidas and Nike trainers are both good for me.
I have the pale pink suede ones and love them! They're really lightweight so great for summer. They rubbed a little bit the first time I wore them but have been fine since despite wearing those little trainer socks with them. Despite spraying them they have a couple of dirty marks on the toes that I'm struggling to get rid of, so bear that in mind in you go for a pale suede colour.
