I have plantar fasciitis and have had a terrible time finding shoes to use for walking laps around the block. The arch and heel support on this shoe are great. Unfortunately, my feet are long and narrow and they flop around in front of the shoe. If it came in a narrow...it would be perfect!

The weirdest shoe I've ever seen: the description says "A neoprene collar provides a snug fit without being constricting." This is a built-in, non-removable stretchy strap that goes over the ankle. My podiatrist and pedorthist both told me to return the shoes if the strap is not removable.

Bought these to go to Germany; thought we'd have a bit of walking to do. Turns out all we did was walk. This was the best investment I made for the trip. They were comfortable right out of the box and were the only shoes I wore for 10 days. I will definitely buy another pair.

I absolutely love these shoes! I am on my feet all day (12 hour shifts six days a week) and these are great. I have a couple of pairs of the Dansko clogs, but I like these much better. The soles are slightly softer (it does not feel like you are walking on a board) and the inner liner grips your foot well, so you do not feel like you are sliding around in the shoe. Also, I have a tendency to turn my ankle in the clogs. I kind of fall off the edge of the shoe. These do not have that problem. I wear size 40 in the clogs and ordered the same size with no problems. They are perfect for use if you are standing/walking a ton. Plus, they look adorable with scrubs - just saying. As always, Zappos is the best. They provide quick shipping and easy returns, but you will not need to return these shoes.

First off, for those with the heel slippage problem, I had to size down from a 41 to a 40 or these to fit right. I was concerned because my right foot big toe seemed a tad close to the end, but being suede they stretched out some and now fit perfectly. I have low arches, not flat feet, and the arch support in these is perfect for me. My heel is narrow, and I widen out in the ball of my foot, and these fit perfectly in both areas. Someone commented that she wasn't sure how to lace them due to the neoprene around the ankle. They lace like any other shoe. If in doubt, look at the picture. I would not consider these distance walking shoes. I ran 5 miles a day for 40 years and now walk instead, due to knee problems, from 3 to 5 miles, and only wear good quality running shoes to walk that much distance. I do still break into a run now and again when my knees will take it, so it's just better in my opinion to buy something more serious for distance. I've never found a walking shoe enough to support my feet for long power walks. I love the quality of these shoes, and the blue and aqua are so pretty for spring. I've never liked Dansko clogs. My feet are too narrow for them, and the sole seems to hard for my knees. But, since these have rubber soles and lace, they work fine. I'm very happy with mine.

I really wanted these shoes to work since I think they are so cute for a walking shoe, and the elastic banding around the foot entry makes it less likely to chafe...but in the end, I couldn't make them work. I tried every orthotic I had, combos of orthotics, etc, but it just never felt right. The large toe box is great, but it actually felt too large, like I could slide around. I never could get the proper arch support in the right place, but that may have been a sizing issue -- I couldn't tell if I needed to go up or down a size. If you have plantar fasciitis (and mine is severe), this may not be the shoe for you.
