My husband absolutely loves these shoes. He has a wide foot and the shoe that he had been wearing was discontinued and so we were on the hunt for a new one that would be as comfortable as his current ones. He has commented several times that this was the first shoe that he has owned that was extremely comfortable on day 1. No breaking it in, it just feels really good. It provides him with not only the width he needs but the comfort and stability as well. Would definately buy it again. The shoe was a little short, so we ordered up a half size.
