such great arch support. very good looking shoes. people stop me & ask where I bought them---people of all ages. Because of medical problems I had to give up my high heels & wedges. I have been slowly building up a supportive shoe wardrobe, and because I need support & my gait is so bad it is hard to find nice looking shoes. these feel good on the inside & look great on my feet. I put them on the first day & have worn them since with no discomfort whatsoever,.....no rubbing, no breaking in & no stretching. I will definitely be buying more of this brand as my budget allows.
