I have wide feet with high arches, bunions, missing sesamoid bones, hammer toe...this shoe was the very first time I experienced pain free walking in my life! I am so grateful. I have been wearing them for over a decade, and have had to keep a new pair in the box in the closet, as back up. I just started wearing my fourth pair. They really do hold up remarkably well. The sizing has varied a tiny bit, but, free exchange enables "getting it right". The shoes buff out like new. I have worn them for yard work, dusted them off, and worn them to the stores, church...when a pair of shoes make your feet this happy, they are appropriate wherever one wears shoes! I hope they remain available forever!!!
