I purchased both colors, taupe and black, in these shoes for work. They feel like I'm walking on clouds! I am on my feet all day at work; I am a physical therapist. These go quite well with my standard issue " uniform"- polo shirt and khakis. On the advice of one of the reviewers, I purchased a half size bigger, but after wearing them a couple of times, the shoes loosened up too much, so I repurchased in my usual size. Fortunately, both were sale purchases! The quality and fit of these shoes are excellent, so it was well worth it!
