I bought a black pair for work, I deliver a walking route for the Postal Service, and loved them! The extra space in the toe area is just what I needed and the extra arch is just what my foot Dr ordered! That arch is fantastic! I have a fallen arch and the arch you guys put in these shoes work great. There is enough mid-sole to make the long walks comfortable. Thanks so much for this shoe design! I am even ordering another pair for running!
