These shoes are awesome. I have a very high arch and thought I would try these shoes. They are just great and I feel comfortable weaaring them all day. I normally wear a special made insole to support my arch but did not need to wear with this shoe. I wish I could wear them to work. I didn't know if I would like a clog and so I tried the lace up islander style first and loved them. These are even better with the improved arch support.
