The Marimekko sneakers are just gorgeous with the lovely original Marimekko pattern and colours. I am very happy with them, they fit perfectly. The parcel was dispatched very quickly and they arrived in a shorter time than even expected, which was a bonus and thanks to the very organised supplier. Excellent service. Thank you. Will shop again and again.
More gorgeous than in the picture, lovely colours and envy of all.
