Hugo Boss Matrix Review
Hugo Boss started his company in Germany, starting off selling clothing in 1923. They began by selling shirts and jackets and then expanded into work clothing and sportswear. In the 30s the company was booming when it started producing uniforms for the German government’s organizations, such as Hitler Youth, the SA, and the SS. Boss was a known follower and supporter of the Nazi Party throughout their reign, and even after they fell. Because of his loyalty to the party, after the war, Hugo’s son-in-law, Eugen Holy, took over the company and began expanding it, branching out into men’s suits, among other things. The brand was slowly starting to boom, and they launched their signature fragrance in the 80s and began selling excellent quality footwear in the mid-90s. It has been a slow and long process, with some major setbacks along the way, but the company made it and is well known all around the world.
The Hugo Boss Matrix sneakers are just one of the many fantastic products to come from this company. They offer a great deal of comfort that customers can significantly appreciate. Unfortunately, the shoes are only available in full sizes and medium widths so if you wear a half size or need a wide, then you might want to consider a different option. They do have a pretty steep price tag, but they are highly durable. Some consumers do not believe they are worth the cost, but that seems to be more of a personal preference as there are some out there that love the sneakers and had no problem spending the extra cash on them. All and all, they are a great pair of footwear that many consumers love.

There is a soft fabric lining inside the foot chamber to give you a right amount of ventilation around your foot, helping keep your feet cooled down throughout the day, so you do not experience overheating, especially on warmer days. Since the air is able to get in, the sweat from your feet will also be able to get out of the interior of the shoe, helping keep you dry and aiding in preventing stinky feet at the end of the day.
The sneakers are available in a handful of different colors you can most likely find a pair that will suit your style needs. When purchasing them, you can choose between three mixed black and grey combinations, two different white and gray combos, medium blue, or dark red. They are a casual pair of sneakers and therefore probably would not fit in well at the office or more formal events, but just hanging out with the guys or attending a family barbeque, these will be a great option.
The soft and breathable uppers also contribute to the overall comfort level of the shoes. They are going to allow air to flow into your shoe and cool your feet down, keeping you cozy throughout the day. This is also going to prevent you from tromping around with wet socks thanks to sweaty feet. Additionally, the soft materials and flexible sole will move with your feet with each step you take, giving you a freeing feeling while you walk.
When it comes to supporting under your arches, there does not seem to be a whole lot of padding there, where you might need it. As previously mentioned there is not a lot of information available on the exact construction of the midsole, but a few customers comments were stating that there was a real lack of support in the sneakers. Consumers did agree that they were comfortable, despite not having enough cushioning in that area. The problem lies with the fact that you cannot replace the insole that is located inside them to give yourself more support. You are pretty much stuck with what you get right out of the box.
