I have a high arch so I was doubtful that these shoes would be comfortable. But they are wonderful. There is a small arch support in the shoe and a soft foot bed, with plenty of toe room. I love the dark-silvery color and they go great with pants, capris, skirts. I wear a size 7.5M and ordered that size in this shoe, and found it true to size. Life Stride is a brand that has been around a long time and they make a quality shoe. I'm impressed with these shoes and thought they were a good value. Wish they came in several colors.
