The shoes look great and fit well. I actually ordered my regular shoe size for these shoes and they are just slightly big. My fault though, I chose to ignore the .5 size large. However, they do fit good and the half size is not a big deal. As for the look, the picture on the page doesn't do justice. What you don't see in the picture is that the black leather also has silver flakes in them that makes the shoes sparkle a little bit. As the shoes are brand new, I'm sure this "sparkle" effect will probably go away after a while.
Performance. A warning to you all. Be sure to do 2 or 3 games of practice before using these shoes in league play. I did not read previous ratings and did not see the warning, however, Dexter does give this recommendation in a leaflet that comes with the shoes. The heel and sole slide combination that comes with the shoe (S8 slide sole/H5 heel) does need to be broken in a little bit. As I wore these in league play right out of the box, it took all of my ten minutes of practice (had about 5 approaches) and nearly two full games before I was able to slide comfortably. By the midway point of the third game I was experiencing a great slide. The push off shoe, on the other hand, will provide a great power step. The traction of the push off shoe is outstanding!
I've only got the 3 games on these shoes as mentioned above but overall I'm very happy with the shoes. Highly recommended!
