I like these shoes so well I immediately ordered them in 2 additional colors! I like to wear "Mary Jane" style shoes due to several medical conditions -- many involving my feet/legs and gait/balance. My latest issue is that one of my feet swells a little and the other has a lump on the top, meaning some of my other shoes no longer fit well, but these will address several of those problems. What I like: 1. The strap has enough Velcro to expand to different widths, wraps around the foot toward my ankle, and the Velcro also holds extra tight so the shoe doesn't pull off if I stumble and put stress on the strap. 2. The opening goes far enough toward the toe to allow for the occasional swelling of the tops of my feet. 3. The rubber sole is thick enough to raise me above small puddles in bad weather, but thin enough for them to look a little dressy as well -- not so thick to be clunky & heavy. 4. The soft, cushioned insole makes them super comfortable, and also can be pulled right out. I may try that with thicker socks -- or even with a single shoe if I need the extra room. 5. They're lightweight and the toes curl up a bit -- which also helps me to avoid tripping.By now you're probably wondering why I bother to walk at all if I have this much trouble doing it, but I'm determined to keep myself as mobile as possible for as long as possible. I hope these shoes will help me continue to do that in comfort and style . 🙂
I love these shoes. They are comfortable without being overly "sensible". They go with everything. The toe box is on the wide side, which is great for me because the front of my feet/toe area tends to be slightly wide. I teach preschool and am on my feet all day and these shoes keep my feet from hurting. They breathe pretty well, too. I have worn them with and without socks successfully. I saw them originally in DSW and they were 30.00 more than amazon's price. I get lots of compliments on them. If you like a mary jane style, and need a bit of cushion for your foot, these are just the thing.
These shoes are extremely comfortable and light! Size is pretty much true in length. Standard width, they are roomy enough but not gaping or sliding off. I was hesitant that they might look too geriatric or frumpy, but I’m pleased with their appearance (photos for reference).
