I was looking for an all white shoe to wear to work as I work in a hospital. Saw these on-line and really liked the style. Was concerned about the no-tie laces as I've had shoes in the past without ties and they were too tight. My intention was to cut the no-tie laces and insert regular laces but these turned out to be great. Shoes don't feel tight at all. Very light weight and stylish. Considering purchasing another pair so when my current ones wear out, I'll already have a spare pair.

I love my Shape-ups, but I wanted a pair of lightweight shoes for everyday use. I like the look of these shoes, but the arches are set so far back so that they are too painful to wear. Going to have to return them.

      These really are the best pair of sneakers I've ever owned. I am on my 3rd pair and I'm just hoping that these are never discontinued lol. I don't know what I'd do. They're stylish to wear casually and super comfortable for working out. I had no issues with pain or blisters.

                The SN22463 Style I purchased later is so high, they are difficult to get on without a shoehorn.

                Q:

                Is this shoe similar in size as the Biker Shoe style #21140? I do not like a big bulky shoe. I prefer the slender style. If not could you recommend one that is slip one and all white leather?

                  A:

                  The Gratis is similarly slim and lightweight to the Bikers, and should be even more comfortable. For a white slip on leather shoe, I'd recommend the Synergy - Loving Life, the EZ Flex 2 - Right On, the Gratis - Big Idea, or the Breathe Easy - Relaxation.

                  There are some additional colors available in some of the other Gratis models, like the In Motion or TGIF, which are very similar. There are some additional versions coming soon, and I can also recommend the EZ Flex and Glider shoes for a similar fit and feel, and more color choices.

                  Pretty much any shoe with no leather content like the Gratis - Big Idea shoe can be machine washed. I recommend using the gentle cycle, placing both shoes into a laundry bag or pillow case and air dry only.

                  If you normally wear a wide width, I would suggest you start by looking at all shoes currently available in a wide width - that's under Size/Width on the top menu. There are currently 49 shoes available in a wide width, with more to come.

                  The Gratis - Big Idea shoe has no leather in the upper, so it should be okay for machine washing. I recommend washing on the gentle cycle, using a laundry bag or pillowcase to hold the shoes in the wash, and air dry only.
