I wear these shoes instead of trainers, on a day to day basis, and I find them very comfortable. They're reasonably light to walk in, but have good grip. (Watch out for all the dirt that gets trapped in the tread!) Size-wise, they're very roomy around the toes. Personally, I'd prefer something a little sleeker in appearance to make them more feminine, but perfect shoes are hard to find, and there's not much else to fault in these ones. I had to return the first pair which I ordered in my regular size as they were just too big. A half size down was better although still with space to spare. I could perhaps have gone down another half size but I use orthotics and once I'd fitted those in, the fit was just right. One thing I would do if I bought another pair would be to spend the £10 extra and buy the waterproof version. I have no idea how well that works, but it has to be better than having damp toes after a 5 minute walk in heavy rain. These are less water-resistant than I expected.
