I have to be honest, I am TOUGH when it comes to shoes. I have spent hundreds trying to find a pair that work for standing and running around at a hotel all day. I think these might work. I bought several off- and name-brand shoes and had to return them all because they pinched or creased (and ended up pinching) or wore out so fast it was just a waste of money. I used to make fun of people who wear crocs, but I am eating my words now!
I have only had these for a week but they were HALF the price of what I normally pay so I am happy already.I love that these are ONE PIECE, so the tread is not going to peel away from the upper after a week. I have kind of wide feet so they are comfy AND leave room for swelling from standing all day. Not to mention a lot of flats just look dumb because of the shape. These are rounded at the toe just how I like them, and they do not make my feet look gigantic. There is also some significant heel and ball support, which is hard to find in a flat. Usually by now in my day ( a couple hours into my shift), I would be kicking off my shoes or searching for a chair. My feet do not hurt at all right now!
My only qualm is that they do not breathe! I am afraid that the fuzzy lining may just end up stinky. I may pull it out. I did buy a size down (normally an 8.5-9, 8 works great for me) and I think I may go buy more in other colors.
