Legacy High-Top Sneaker Product Review:
Recently SUAVS sent us their Legacy high-top sneaker in olive green to review for Hi-Tech Chic!
After unboxing the sneakers, I noticed right away how ultra-soft and very lightweight they were and unexpectedly I liked the olive-green color.
After trying them on I immediately thought these will be my new festival and live show shoes as they were so comfortable and fit perfectly. The soft and breathable fabric makes them versatile so you don’t necessarily need to wear socks.
I personally doubt you will get new shoe blisters with the Legacy sneakers, unlike when you purchase new athletic shoes.
The Legacy can also be your travel shoes go-to since they pack flat, which for an over-packer like myself is ideal!
The digitally knitted high-top sneaker can be dressed up like boots, worn like sneakers, and feel like comfy socks, I chose the jean shorts route!
Below are the full product specs of the Legacy Sneakers:
- Soft and Comfortable Digital Knit
- Breathable Fabrics
- Wide, Natural Toe Box
- Rubber toe cap keeps your toes dry in rainy weather.
- Moisture Wicking Insoles (For wearing with or without socks)
- Washable & Dries Quick
- Removable & washable polyfoam insole is covered with microfiber terry for moisture absorption.
- Flexible, stitched Rubber Sole
- Packs Flat (Perfect for any bag or your travels)
- Made with 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Threads
I originally received these from SUAVS in hopes of me wearing them during Austin’s SXSW 2020 and upcoming festival season but due to the COVID-19, I didn’t get to sport them yet.
I have however been wearing them on my porch while I practice social distancing and while it’s getting hot in Austin, these shoes are very breathable!
Hopefully, in Fall 2020 I will get to try them out during Austin’s ACL Music Festival b/c the Legacy sneakers would be perfect, especially on the hot or wet days!!
