I have always loved Earthies. I have fallen arches and I finally thought I found stylish shoes that I could enjoy wearing. Must report that I have bought 3 pairs of shoes this summer. The first one was a wedge, love the design, however, I just felt like the arch support was not like it used to be. Then recently I bought the other 2 pair and neither one had that great arch support. I did not mind paying the price for a comfortable shoe, but I am very disappointed that they will no longer work for me and are not worth the big price. For those with my problem I recommend you try Vionic. Great arch support and reasonably priced.
