I bought a pair of these when I was looking for a more comfortable pair of flats as NOTHING was comfortable since I have wider feet. Every pair of shoes I tried on really hurt my pinky toes as they're squishing them. I finally tried on this pair of barefoot and I fell in love with it! Since then I have walked all over San Francisco with it, hiked Grouse Mountain (mother nature's stair master in Vancouver, BC) with it, walked Las Vegas, and just daily walking everyday at hilly Calgary, AB. It is so comfortable that I am starting to think of buying a second pair 1 year after purchasing my first pair. I can walk all day in these shoes and my foot won't ache! My only wish is that there are more colours available for the Canada market and be available as more Canadian shoe stores and departments.
