They soak up the sun light really well and end up glowing with a minimal amount of shadow. I was a little worried about the bottoms. They don't look like they have much traction, but i got them at the start of winter and haven't slipped once so i can say I'm pretty impressed. They do kind of make me feel like I'm wearing clown shoes? But i think that's just a personal thing.
