You are going to be ready for anything when you have shoes like these that you can wear. The elastic material throughout is the same kind you would expect to find in your favorite socks. The contoured fit around your ankle will offer you support while the additional elastic material in this section will keep your feet firmly inside the shoes. Cord laces are passed through holes punched into the sides of the bridge. This can be tied at the top to maintain the fit you are looking for. The running shoe cut of the sneakers maintains your ability to be active while the breathable mesh material will help your feet to remain comfortable. The reflective metallic accents on the heels will keep you safe when out at night. Two-tone rubber heels include a bit of a lift in the back as well as tread in the soles.
