Starbury Running Shoe Mar 30, 2009
By Julie A. Sileo
Shoe is decently made, but not recommended for hard use. Have been using for a month and already the front of shoe is coming apart. For normal wear (walking/running) that does not involve intense sport-like movements (raquetball/basketball), it is a good deal.

Good, light-weight shoe for everyday wear Apr 18, 2009
By A Guy in Indianapolis
This is a good, light-weight shoe. It is very well ventillated, so it's best worn indoors or in warm weather. I wouldn't recommend it for running or sports activities, but for everyday walking, you can't beat it for the price.

Excellent shoe for the price! Jun 24, 2009
I was looking for a pair of sneakers that would not easily tear or start getting holes in it while at work. I don't really do athletic stuff, but a shoe from a local store started tearing at the edges of the toe section (the left and right corners that tend to fold when your toes bend at the ball of your foot). Those shoes were obviously not so great. So, I sent for the Starbury shoes! I went with Navy/White, and they look great!
These shoes have fabric at that common bending point, so they will not easily tear like the solid material my other shoes had. The heel area is indeed fairly weak, so when one puts their shoe on without a shoe-horn, it tends to get folded down. A quick flip with ye olde finger fixes it right up though. And, for the price, I am willing to throw in the extra maneuver when I put my shoes on.
I found these shoes to be really nice, and as long as they last me more than a few months, I will be looking for more in the future! Thank you for having these available!

Cheap, Walmart sells better shoes. Aug 06, 2011
I'm very disappointed with these pair of shoes, not only does it have a look cheap, the pair of shoes is cheap. They have bad balance and I find myself barely able to run in them, despite the fact that these are so called "running shoes." The soles and toes support are terrible and instead of cushioning the impact, it makes it worst, I can easily contest that running barefoot is a lot better than with these pair of shoes.

Beware of Marginal Quality Dec 09, 2010
By TP Reitzel
At this point, I can't comment about the durability of the shoe, but I can say the shoe is comfortable and the price is great. Although, my size was unavailable in the color, black, I bought the white and blue shoe which looks nice. Lastly, I like the fact that the shoelaces are just the right length so they don't droop on the ground. ;)
UPDATE: Within 2 weeks of purchase, one of the soles came partly unglued where the sole wraps around to the toes. Unfortunately, one can't walk with a flapping sole. ;) This problem was handled with some fabric glue. Within 4 months, these shoes were basically falling apart. Hence, I'm downgrading my review from 4 to 2 stars. Overall, I wouldn't buy these shoes again. If you feel bold, buy some fabric glue first. ;)
