I was very disappointed with these shoes. The insole is thin, hard, and had a ribbed texture for extra discomfort. The mesh started ripping and fraying in various areas after a month (I play once a week for a few hours). The mesh material is also so thin that while lacing up these shoes on two separate occasions the holes for the laces ripped and I had to make new holes. The only good thing about these shoes is the grip, which works well on specialized table tennis floors and somewhat decent on concrete. These are literally the WORST shoes I've ever bought and at this price point, Tibhar should be ashamed of themselves.
