I have a wide foot and it's so hard to find a great shoe that fits well, has enough cushioning and support and at the same time looks good. This shoe has it all. The item descriptions and multiple views on all the shoes are a great help because I have a flatter foot and cannot get something that says 'for the over pronator''. Plus they have many choices in wide widths you can't find anywhere else. Zappos rocks, the free shipping/returns, the selection and unbelievably quick turnaround time on refunds can't be beat. The whole experience is hassle-free!

I'd also recommend: Any Asics Gel, possibly Saucony or Avia

Ordered 2 other brands of shoes and these in a single order (Love you Zappos!). I have very high arches and for the price these were the best fit. Excellent support and a roomy toe box. Heels are a good fit as well - no slippage.

Love these shoes! Comfortable and fit well. I was able to wear them right out of the box with no problems. I often have troubles finding shoes as I wear a 11W in women shoes and need a wide toe box, but I had no troubles with these shoes.

These shoes are very comfortable and the fit is perfect. I thought I should go to a store to try on my walking shoes, and I am pleasantly surprised that these fit better than ones I have tried on and they were also much cheaper than the pair I got at a mall. I use arch supports and they fit well in the shoes when I remove the inner soles.

I am an avid Jazzerciser so my workout sneakers must give good support. I replace my sneakers every 6 months and then wear the "old" ones for casual attire. I really like these sneakers and will probably replace them with the same. They do seem to run a bit narrow because I must wear the lighter weight ankle socks. Another bonus was that these shoes were on sale. I don't spend over my budget for sneakers.
