I would have given this shoe a 5-star rating if it accommodated my foot problem. I have heel spurs and bursitis above the heel. I also have a slight hammer toe which the shoe hid and also didn't irritate. A true 2 inch heel would have alleviated the pain caused by the bursitis, however the generous platform on this shoe took away from the heel height, causing it to be a tad bit too low. In addition, I would have appreciated a bit more cushion, especially in the heel area. Still, I gave it a very decent rating because had I not had foot problems the shoe would have been perfect. The shoe, itself, is very comfortable.
