I have to admit these are my first pair of non "skate style shoes" I have purchased in 15 years... (excluding dress shoes) I was a bit hesitant at first but bought them and wear them everywhere now! I couldn't be happier with them. They are super light and you hardly notice when you are wearing them. I wear them for running errands and for working out. These are great shoes! I feel they do run about a 1/2 size smaller then other shoes. So order 1/2 larger than you normally do. I had to send back my first order due to them being a little tight. I should have trusted the other reviews! Buy the shoes, you won't regret it!
