I have worn this style shoe for about 5 years. I think they were called the same name on their previous release. I was totally disappointed when the style was discontinued for a year or so. I like the shoe style with the closed in back. This shoe is comfortable and durable. Wear them constantly...probably the only place I don't wear them is to church. I am "the walking advertisement" for these shoes. Whenever anyone comments on the shoe they hear how great they are from me. Thanks for bringing the style back.
