UGG Kinney Review
The UGG Kinney sneakers are a fantastic pair of walking shoes that customers adore. They offer so much in the way of underfoot cushioning, from the Treatlite outsole to the EVA foam midsole and the performance foam insole. They even have a super soft faux leather lining on the inside to ensure your feet will be comfortable even if you opt out of wearing socks. You will get a highly responsive ride that gives you a nice little spring in your step that people love. They look great, coming in a couple of different colors so you can pick something that will best fit your style and personality. They might have a relatively high price tag but many customers believe that they are well worth the cost, as they are highly durable and will not need to be replaced for quite some time. If you are in the market for an all around great pair of sneakers then you might want to take a look at the UGG Kinney walking shoes.

Additionally, these shoes are going to be able to hold quite the grip. You are going to be able to keep your grip while you are out and about, on many different surfaces in a plethora of weather conditions. Whether you are walking on wet or dry surfaces you can rest easy knowing that you will have a better chance of staying on your feet while you are walking in there, whether you are walking on a dry floor, hit a slick spot, or trekking across an icy parking lot. Customers love the great traction they get from these great soles.
You will get a decent amount of energy return from these sneakers, thanks to a combination of the foam in the midsole, as well as the above-mentioned rubber outsole. While you are out and about your feet will sink down into the soles of your shoes with each step that you take. The foam will then try to quickly and efficiently bounce back to its original shape, pushing your forward and propelling you into your next step. This is going to help you save a little bit of energy in the long run because you will not have to use as much to keep pushing yourself forward.
Thanks to the knit materials the shoes are extremely well ventilated and can help make sure that your feet are going to stay both cool and dry while you are out and about. Since the air can get into the foot chamber you can expect that it will help keep you cool, especially on warmer days. However, since the air can get in that means any sweat from your feet will be able to quickly evaporate and escape the shoes, keeping your feet dry and creating a healthier in-shoe environment for your feet.
They do not have a traditional lacing system, instead, they have a stretch collar to help you slip your feet into the shoes combined with bungee laces and a toggle so you can tighten or loosen your sneakers as needed. They do a good job at ensuring your feet stay locked into the shoe. As long as you get the correct size you will not have to worry about your feet slipping and sliding around inside the shoe, or worse, falling out of it completely, causing you to potentially fall and hurt yourself or someone else.
As for arch support, there is not a whole lot of information available on how much or little is offered by these sneakers. They do have a decent amount of foam in the midsole so you can assume that they have some kind of support for your arches, but there is no information to know for sure. There, however, have been no customer complaints relating to the lack of support here.
The outsole is designed using UGG's Treadlite technology which promotes flexibility, giving them the ability to move and bend with your feet with each step you take. Additionally, the midsole and uppers are made out of softer materials that are also going to move with your feet. Giving you the ability to wiggle your toes and walk without restrictions.
These sneakers are pretty durable and do not have the tendency to suffer from premature wear and tear, which is always a bonus. The Treadlite outsole is made with a rubber compound that is made to withstand the repeated beating into the pavement that comes with walking day after day, mile after mile. Additionally, the knit uppers are made with synthetic materials that will help ensure they last, not ripping and tearing too easily like some of the other, cheaper, options might.
You should not have to worry about irritating chafing and rubbing on your feet while wearing these sneakers thanks to the softly knit materials that make up the uppers. It can become rather uncomfortable when that happens and cause nasty sores and blisters. If you do start to have problems with rubbing and blisters some people recommend wearing socks to help eliminate the problem.
Customers have mentioned that these shoes are running a bit too large and recommend that you order a full half size smaller than you normally would so you can make up for that discrepancy. They are, however, running true to width so that is a good thing. If you are unsure as to what size you should order you can always take a peek at the size chart. It is better to know for sure and get the right size the first time than to have to deal with the hassle of having to return them and reorder for a better fitting shoe.
