Shoe Unboxing and Review | BDG Quarter-Strap High-Top Wedge-Sneaker

As I previously stated, efforts to secure POTUS Barack Obama's re-election was the only reason I ordered these shoes and I was very pleased to have them arrive within 48 hours of me placing the order on Election Day. 
The people at Urban Outfitters get right to the point when it comes to packaging; when I cut open the bag, all I got was some shoes in a box. No dust jackets. No shape stuffing. None of that extra shit. I didn't mind at all.
In addition to suede leather details, the interior is lined with canvas which is used in numerous U.O. pieces.
I walked around the house in them to find the 3.5-inch incline pretty comfy along with a fair amount of traction from the rubber sole. My only complaint is that I wish the ball of the foot had a bit more padding, but I'm not sure if that will be a factor after walking around in them for a full day.
Overall, I think Urban Outfitters did an excellent job designing a quality shoe instead of just a straight up Bekket high-top knockoff. Moreover, the Chinese did a really good job in the construction so I definitely see myself wearing these over-hyphenated shoes for many seasons to come.
