I wear these shoes to work to go with my skirt outfit. I like them because they look professional, are plain black, are stylish to go with my skirt, breathe well for my feet, and have good support and cushion for my feet when I am standing and walking for long periods-that was a big thing for me because I am often on my feet for at least 7 hours at a time. Overall, I really like these shoes, but the heel on them is a little too high and rubs on my skin when walking. After a 7 hour shift I was developing little sore places on my heels from the rubbing (not too bad, but I need to fix that). I will see if wearing hose helps to minimize the rubbing, and add some padding to my heel perhaps so I can keep wearing the shoes. I think once I "break them in" and fix the rubbing problem they'll be some of my favorite shoes.
