It's time to upgrade your sneakers.
I decided to try China. Although I was very afraid that I would miss the size.
Problems with color rendition.
The main purpose of the review is to share information about the purchase, so that other buyers know what awaits them.
I do not pretend to be a shoe expert, I can only describe my feelings on the basis of my experience.
You can talk a lot about offline and talk,that you can buy other models or even brands for the money. But let's not forget that everyone chooses what he wants. I could buy nike or asics for the money. But I made my choice in favor of China, as I have my own experience in wearing branded and “not so” shoes and my own needs.
I wanted to take a pure winter option with all sorts of "knowhow. " But there was the end of November, and the seller said that on 11.11 my model / size was swept from stock. Offered a similar leather / suede, but I wanted exactly the “know how” with all kinds of membranes, lungs and more.
I had to take sneakers.
a little reflection of choice
I have a wide foot and a high rise. This makes it difficult to choose shoes. Usually either convenient or beautiful. If it’s beautiful and comfortable, it’s expensive or not my size. Sometimes you have to take a size larger that would be normal in the ascent, as the usual 42 just does not dress.
And then there is this great Chinese shoe size table, where my 28cm became 45 size ... For a long time I could not figure out where to look and what to order.
As a result, he sent the seller his own foot size (42 / 28cm) and a tag from the ribo.
He said to take 43 European, so I ordered. I even knew which friend I would sell if they did not fit.
I went skiing and now I have a step not like everyone else. Shoes very quickly grind at the corners, and all because of the skating.
I tried to highlight places where shoes can knock down before holes before losing their appearance. Even in winter it is grinding "with a bang."
At least somehow it is saved by a particularly durable rubber, which is put by brands. But even she is not eternal.
Here is an example of a very long-playing rebock, I was even surprised myself.
Loved the SCOTT shoes. The sole was not killable.
But then I was forced to urgently buyshoes, instead of torn fishing. The choice was made on the "cool" Patrol for $ 65 (SCOTT cost cheaper, but it was very convenient for me). And probably the main contribution was made by the sole
One could boldly hang around on gravel and not feel the stones. Like marshmallows on your feet, which absorbs all the bumps and at the same time you understand that you are standing on a sharp stone - but it does not cause discomfort.
Of course, a couple of times a week small pebbles got stuck in the sole, but it was worth it to “kick” with your foot, and they flew out.
But they communicated specifically for the year.
Then there were Salomon s-wind Inca. Very light and pleasant. But they seemed to "burst." It turns out that the manufacturer inserted plastic inserts in the sock that destroyed the external material.
They cost their money in 4500r only for convenience. Since they were demolished in a year.
I also really liked the Hi-Tec Ezee’Z slip-ons. Only foam and fabric. Nothing more. Any slush is a problem for them, even with impregnation. But comfort ... As if in your favorite slippers. Lightness, flexibility, mmm. But their term was not long.
Maybe I walk too much (sometimes more than 20,000 steps per day), maybe too heavy.
But this is a little story.
I try to take that the top was mesh or fabric. Although this may bring minor disadvantages, but the leg breathes better, and in the rain everything is exactly all wet.
He loved skin before. Now I wear only severe frosts under -30.
So when I saw a Chinese man with a sole,which I liked, with rubber inserts on the sole, a breathable fabric and a pleasant design - the choice was made. And the price seemed reasonable to me, and if they serve a year, like most others, I will not be upset, the main thing is that wearing brings joy.
I took them in the spring, summer (it is not always hot)Autumn and winter are somewhere up to minus 15 if you do not stand at the stops for a long time. (although in Adidas I saw winter boots for 8000r with the words “to minus 25, but if you stop, you’ll freeze already at 10, they usually take the drivers” To wear shoes in winter (400m to the store) and it’s not wet, and therefore legs they’re not cold. I treat the sneakers with rain impregnation. Good impregnation is enough for a long time.
By the way, here is an example of why the speckled outsole from Skechers (from 1:40)
About Shipping / Packaging
After reading the reviews, I was looking forward to the fact that the package will go for less than a month, 20 days.
But a month passed as the package left China. I thought they threw me.
But the seller claimed that he had sent everything. I began to suspect that the seller had shod the sneakers and personally went to my house in them. I even wrote to the seller that next time let him send it by another mail, and I’m even ready to pay, so as not to wait for ages.
When I went to the seller’s page, and with tears, I read reviews about fast delivery.
I guess my karma is bad, because the barcode says “airplane delivery” and they quickly delivered everything to everyone else ...
I told the seller that the next time it would be easier for me to pay for any kind of “e-card” and he said that in the future he would make more delivery options.
And so, on the eve of the new year, the track began to move.
At least on the 9th I was told that the package was waiting,it turned out that she was lost in the department and they could not find her (6 hours passed and the black hole sucked the parcel). As a result, 12 people in line and 1:40 hours spent in line didn’t make me happy. They wrote down my number and promised to call if they find it.
As a result, in a day I went myself to 8 in the morning, was 4 and found the parcel quickly.
Everything came in such a package. Allegedly a gift for $ 10
Inside, everything was once again packed in the same corporate bag and paper packaging. Only if offline brands usually have paper without ponto, then here with drawings and inscriptions.
And lay a bag of silica gel.
Although the seller is sociable, clumsy translators do their job.
As a result, I began to look for what kind of company. I came across taobao for more detailed descriptions of models.
It turns out I have a Leopard model. There are others, for example, wolves. Differences in purpose. But with leopards, I can open new horizons (as the poster promised me). And better leg support (leopard decides).
So you can safely hang around in them anywhere (although I always do this), but I will be more confident to go fishing in them in the summer or what kind of hike / barbecue - I thought, until I got the shoes.
The model was more "summer" than I thought. But you cannot refuse her convenience. He sits very comfortably and all my fears turned out to be superfluous.
Well, now about the main thing.
As you can see, I have leopards thatWALKING SERIES - for walking. ALL TERRAIN - Any area. Leopard school :))))))))))) In principle, I agree with this. But they are more for dry walking, since they are not waterproof.
Inside the shoe is not just stuffed paper like thisit usually happens, but concrete “plugs” or pads, I don’t know what they are called, are made of durable pressed cardboard and are somewhat reminiscent of sodden fiberboard. With the inscriptions 41-43. Already nice.
On the right shoe there is a tag with a great tongue.
What I liked was the indication of the price from the factory. MEXX did the same when it belonged to Amsterdam, now I don’t know.
Tag with cool jeans.
And on sneakers flaunts 629 yuan, or $ 90.85. But I honestly did not know that they cost so much. But among 10 lots of 6000r each, they can be taken from the manufacturer for 3500 each.
I ordered 43 for my 42 or 28cm.
And did not lose. Everything fell perfectly.
Here they are, my beauties
If you don’t see the joint, then on the left sneaker at the bottom the laces holder is slightly crookedly sewn.
This will be number one.
Here you can see the height. High sole allows you to walk through shallow puddles.
It turns out 30.5cm long
It turns out that there is no tongue in the sneakers, I laced on a leopard.
It was in my old salons and Hi-Tec. I can’t say that this is bad, the seams on the tongue do not interfere at all and it’s even convenient. But due to the high rise, it’s not very convenient for me to shoe them without a spoon. Ideally, you need slippery socks or wait until they are carried / take. In this, I even envy people with the usual foot. I was able to buy comfortable skates for the third time only, and that’s because the store ordered only a wide model.
This is jamb number two. Which I noticed after 4 hours of torsion in my hands and corrected it with scissors.
Laces are normal. It is 120cm long and approximately 3.5mm in diameter.
But on sneakers, I rarely touch them. Once tied up, and then simply "put his foot in and went."
Rubber is applied on the toe. It is as if poured hot there, or as if melted with an iron.
The rubber is soft, a cross between latex and EVA. There is a thickening near the sock and under it as if something is hidden, which gives it rigidity.
There is also embossing.
In the backdrop, too, something is tough.
The backdrop itself has a suede insert. At first I thought it was also synthetic. But it turned out to be suede.
The inscriptions are poured in shape and tearing them is not easy.
The sole is all made of foam (EVA) but the black patches are rubber.
At first glance, the tires are of high quality and will wear out for a long time, but this will show a weekly test.
In addition, there are small pimples that the seller positions as “non-slip & softening outsole: dimensional lower stallions of the disc
with a wonderful restoration and power work, non-slip and wear resistant .. ”and one should be the first to wear off.
A mesh and a very nice fabric are expected inside us. It was the same in slippers and some of my other sneakers. I can’t put a bad word about her. I like and does not break for a long time.
You can see that everything is stitched. But as far as I remember, they are stitching it so that it would be normal to make a sneaker without a sole and not to ruin it. And then just pour or paste the sole. Personally, this firmware never bothered me. And the sole of the last 10 years I have not come off for sure.
As for the insole. It’s usually not all right with them. Even the same price category shoes may have a good or bad insole. I am enraged at the insoles that are compressed under my 95 kg in a rag, but I love those that contain sorbents that absorb odors and moisture.
Here is an insole that absorbs shock with the effectmemory and, if pressed, somewhere in half a second it is restored. Squeezing her is very nice and fun. Like thermoplastic rubber or soft silicone. The seller certainly promises a lot of things, but separately these insoles cost him a lot. I believed him.
There is a vent. It feels like there was fabric, and then they poured the insole on top.
Larger here yadi.sk/i/9STAWunL38QVGA
The total weight of 1 shoe is 409 grams.
The gray strip on the sole is like a thin layer of foam, and under it is a white foam
Well, now field trials.
Sneakers get wet very quickly. But they dry quickly and add almost no weight. Processed by impregnation 2 times.
Wet snow, 0 degrees. For the first time I walked as if I put marshmallows on my feet.
Better to wear with false (large rise). Ideally, you should have slippery socks.
I had to get used to the high sole.
After 6 km (mail / store / walked) and almost 2 hours trampling through the snowdrifts - everything is cool.
The rest of the days were around minus 7-10. About 5km a day went.
Sneakers are well ventilated, it should be cool for the summer.
My legs weren’t freezing, but at minus 10 I realized that they are better ventilated than my riboque
On ice glides, like everything. On the remaining surfaces as if rooted to the spot. If the surface is smooth and wet (for example, tile / linoleum), then there is the usual creak (I can not explain this pattern, but shoes with good wear-resistant rubber can creak on wet linoleum / tile).
Rubber on the toe - at minus 10, the softness does not lose, I think it will not burst.
Sticker "RAX" on the insole - painted light gray socks.
But as it turned out, this is not a problem. Since it degrades and breaks off with a regular degreaser (in the photo I held a cotton swab several times, it got wet and peeled off). This did not affect the insole itself (on the reverse side I checked, nothing has changed)
For almost 6 days (at the time of the photo), the insole did not shrink even like new.
All 6 days I wore only socks (I checked the absorption of odors) - neither the nose, nor the legs, nor the insole - did not smell. The insole smells a bit rubber, but you need to sniff in tight.
Soles are just as good. Although I expected that it could begin to wear off - it did not materialize, even small spines did not erase. In the photo - 2 extreme spikes, which fell most of all under the distribution and most of all blinked.
In conclusion, I can say the following:
The foam itself resembles that of old salons, amid slippers made of foam - earth and space.
Very satisfied with the quality, exceeded all expectations.
Walking in them is soft and pleasant.
Still, they are more for the summer, walking on rough terrain - should be a pleasure.
When I jumped from the snowdrifts to the road (I ran across the road in the wrong places) - it was very comfortable.
I'm glad that the outsole is durable
After treatment with impregnation - dry legs
It looks like this to me:
At the time of ordering, the store was called RAX Ruixing Official Store and had a rating of 98.4% of 501 orders.
But then for some reason the store closed and opened a new one, which I wrote about. Therefore, the link is not his new store. And by reference, female models of small sizes. He said then he will add men.
Since Chinese NG has arrived, the seller is in no hurry to add goods to the store, and for more than 2 weeks I have been walking in sneakers in snowfalls and taking them off with my second foot, like this:
There are no problems, I like shoes.
I took another photo after 2 weeks. In jeans and light winter pants.
Many pictures, everything for you)
Since I do not tuck, here is such an improvisation.
In pants winter / fall
Summer) Well, you can see how the bones are in sneakers.
UPD: today (28.01,2017) I will probably remove the sneakers to the shelf. Still, you need to finish off the old ones. Chinese like new. Yesterday I rode a bus and thought about the insoles - everything is fine with them, they don’t die.
Personally, I have already recommended to all my friends.
