Maxstar is basically an online store based in Korea that sells platform shoes, sneakers, and printed t-shirts. They also make over 150 pairs of custom converse with studded, painted, or platform and mixed the styles all together. The Maxstar brand was founded in 2008 and have been worn in all different parts of the world.
I contacted Maxstar and asked them if they could send me a pair of shoes to review. I was extremely happy when I received an e-mail saying that they'd be glad to send me a pair of my choosing to review. I picked Maxstar C50 7-Holes Zipper Platform Sneakers in Black.
My shoes were shipped out on Thursday April 25th around 10pm and arrived on Monday Apil 29th. My shoes were shipped from Korea to California in 3 days. That's amazing! That's seriously the fastest I've ever received an item from an international store! They also sent me a tracking number via e-mail so that I knew where my package was the whole time.
When I opened the box (I was a little too excited and ripped it open oops...) this is what was inside. My shoes were inside a cute Maxstar bag and they even sent me a pair of black shoe laces! How cool is that?! I love the little Maxstar bag so, I'm going to keep it and use it to store some of my bows or something.
They were also wrapped in clear plastic which, is really great, too. I thought the way the shoes were wrapped and everything was very professional and clean. My shoes come with white laces, as well.
I decided to leave the white laces on because I think they look nice. As you can see, my shoes are platforms. Which means, they are elevated. The platform is attached to the shoe so that it won't come off. It's actually a part of the shoe so, it's not glued on or anything like that. You don't have to worry about it coming off or anything.
On the inside of the shoe, there is a very soft cushion-y fabric. The inside is very comfortable because of this cushion like material. The cushion inside the shoe is very soft and a little squishy which is super comfortable! As you can see, the tag on the inside of the shoe says "Made in Korea" so, there's no doubt that these shoes are straight from Korea.
Here are what my shoes look like on my feet. At first, I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to walk in them since they are platform shoes and I'm very clumsy. But, I've been walking in them all day and so far, they are pretty comfortable for me. They aren't like, super heavy or anything, either. I think they're lighter than my regular tennis shoes, too. They also come with a zipper on the sides so, once you lace and tie them up you can just un-zip the zipper and slide your foot inside.
I got my shoes in a size 6.5 and they fit fine. I'd say if you like your shoes to have a little more room you should go either a half size or a full size bigger. I kind of wish I got mine half size bigger but, since they fit fine I'm not too worried about it.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my shoes from Maxstar. The shipping was really fast and amazing, the customer service was good, and the product gets a 10/10 from me. They are honestly my favorite shoes now! I love them.
I hope you enjoyed this review. If you have any comment or questions about the shoes or anything, feel free to ask and I'd be happy to help.
