I needed a pair of very comfortable shoes to wear on a trip to Europe where I would be touring ancient towns with cobblestone streets. I was dubious about getting these shoes as they are clogs and I thought they would slip off my heel. I took the advice of a saleswoman who said she'd walked all over Europe in these shoes. I bought a pair of these Encore Breeze shoes in the color "silver birch". I wore them every day on cobblestones and they were so light weight and comfortable and they did NOT slip off at all. I've worn them at home too, especially when I'm going to be on my feet a lot. They look as new as the day I bought them. I intend to buy another pair in black.
