I tried them on when they were first released and they are very comfortable.
They few that I have seen with them on all seem to like the way they feel. One person told me that he used to wear Nike's before he purchase these and that he would never go back.
I am waiting in the hopes that they appear in red. They are only produced for the market across the pond because someone said orange would be better for us.
I know all the gator alum and fans will differ in opinion, but...
