they def look cool but not sure laces are really an improvement.

  • the laces don't really get in the way. they give you more control over where the overall fit, so if you like your shoes tight they might work out well for you. I think the sprints are meant for general walking around and looking "cool" rather than running. I run in mine, though, and like them for running.

  • They definitely look more like shoes and should provide a snug fit with the laces. I like the styling of the Bikila more and luckily mine fit like a glove. These have kind of an old school look to me.

  • I'm planning to try these out when it's time to replace my current pair of TrekSports. The advantage that I see to the laces is that if you have a really high instep like I do, the velcro closures that are common on many of the other styles don't always close well enough to stay closed.
