I bought these because I wanted the comfort, cushioning, and support that I love in the Klogs that I already have (clog style), but in a lace-up. The clogs are good when you are on your feet a lot, but not really for long-distance walking. I was hoping the lace-ups would provide a little more over-all support and be shoes I could take on walking tours and things like that. Nope. The arch support is there, but there isn't much cushioning. They are still softer than Dansko shoes, but nothing like the wonderful cushioning in the other Klog styles. So I had to send them back.
To be fair, I'll say that if you don't care about the cushioning, this is a very nice, well-made shoe. But they're not for me.
