Just bought these the other day, and so far a little disappointed at the workmanship and lack of cushioning, particularly on the sole and heel areas. My heels are sore already. They are very light and flexible though which is nice. Think they are overpriced for what you get. For the same money you can buy a much more supportive shoe, which in hindsight I would now have done. Bought them for walking around Paris in October, so time will tell how they go. Didn't want to buy runners for walking, just wanted a stylish good supportive walking show to wear with jeans. Think I'll need another pair of shoes as a backup though.
