When I read about this product, I was impressed with what it
said about the heel area. Since I have plantar faciitis,
this was very important to me. It truly lives up to its
description. I love to walk and have been unable to due to
heel pain, but your product makes it possible for me to go
outside and walk again. It's a sturdy sneaker without being
a heavyweight. I love it!!

I ordered these shoes based on a review. I am a nurse and am
on my feet a lot. I've had pains along with plantar fascitis
in both feet, but the right in particular for about 1 1/2
years. I've tried many shoes but all have made my feet hurt.
These are very comfortable and after about 3 weeks of
wearing, I've ordered a black pair too and although I still
have some pain at the end of the day, it is not nearly as
bad as it was and I'm optimistic it will completely

I walk daily and these were at first a little stiff, but
have worn in nicely with plenty of support. The pain in my
shins and knees have stopped. One con...the right foot seems
to be a tad bit longer than the left because it slips in the
heal slightly. I've never experienced this before and I
don't believe it's my foot. I wouldn't call this shoe
fashionable, but for walking I didn't care that much. It
makes my foot look a bit smaller...not a lot bulk in the toe
area. I walk on asphalt with no problems. When I recently
had to walk up a steep gravel incline at the gun range, I
found I slipped a little due to not a lot of tread. I
usually wear an 8W.

I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts. I recently had an
injury that required me to get orthotics but no matter how
much I wore them I could not bear to have them in my shoe, I
finally settled on these sneakers and so far I am very
happy. I have no pain in my arch at the end of the day which
is very important when you are running around a busy floor.
Hope they hold up well.
I have high arches and a slight overpronation, and this shoe
fits me better than any other walking shoe I've tried. I was
fitted to this brand at a running shoe store, however. Other
walking shoes tend to rub and irritate the top of my feet or
toes. This one has soft layers over the leather: a comfy
interior. I put it through a constant 10 hours of abuse at
work most days and it stands up well to that as well.
Georgia from Port Townsend, WA
Very comfortable shoe. I am a barista and work 40 hours in 4
days. Yes, my feet still hurt, but compared to the other
shoes I've tried over the past two years these are the best.
I'm no longer limping by the end of the day. I love that the
shoes have room for two gel inserts without squeezing my
feet while still leaving room for the inevitable swelling
when anyone is on their feet for that long.
Saucony Fan from Larsen, WI
I wear these shoes almost 24/7. I even wear them to church.
I have worn this brand for 15 years because I prefer leather
over mesh, and they have always been very durable and
provided excellent arch support. However, the style I wore
in the past is no longer available, or else these are the
same shoes, only changed. I used to put a new pair on and
they would just hug my feet securely and provide excellent
arch support. That is no longer the case. These are a little
sloppy, and I even got a blister on the side of my foot
while doing a lot of walking on vacation. I will continue to
purchase them as long as they make shoes in white leather,
as their shoes are still better than other brands that offer
similar leather styles.
