Even in the box, the TechLoom Dreams looked absolutely gorgeous. I went with the black pair, which I could envision wearing outside of the gym, dressing up with a silk midi and top, or wearing out and about with denim and a crisp white tee. (It also comes in a signature ivory colorway.) The TechLoom Dream has a size run of 5 through 11, including half sizes. I went for my true size, a 5.5, and these fit like a glove right away — no breaking in period. They were also incredibly breathable thanks to the knit upper, which I find is a highly underrated feature in footwear. (I recently hiked multiple trails in Hawaii, and shoes that had some degree of airflow were key.) While they felt super comfortable right away, I knew that the true test would be how my feet felt after an entire day of dog walks, errands, and workouts.
