These are comfortable shoes and they look pretty good. The colors are quite bold for me, but I love the colors, and they are growing on me. The best thing about these shoes for me personally is that they come in a very wide width (4E). I apparently have wide, duck feet, and unfortunately, this greatly limits the shoes that I can buy - whether sneakers, dress, or athletic shoes. So it is nice that one of the only 4E shoes available anywhere looks good and is reasonably priced. A potential concern is the arch support. I typically use Superfeet insoles (the green one), but on my first time wearing this out for an entire day with the stock insoles, it was comfortable all day long, and I had no pain. So it must have at least decent arch support. I will probably reinstall the Superfeet at some time. Overall, I like the shoes, and I would recommend them.

I'd also recommend: Merrell

Fit great. I'm not a runner so I can't say how they are for running but I wear them for general use everyday and have been very happy with them. I will probably order another pair for when these wear out.

I love to order from Zappos because I get my order quickly and hassle free. If the shoes I order don't fit, I can return them for free, unlike many other sites. It is hard to fit my feet as I am a EE in width, but I can usually find a great shoe at a great price. I highly recommend Zappos!

These are great shoes. My foot size is 12 1/2 EEEE, and they fit and breath. I highly recommend to Dallas Cowboys fans, because they match the colors!

I love these shoes! This is the 2nd pair I've bought. I rarely find a pair of new shoes that don't need any break-in period but these fit and feel great right out of the box.
