These shoes provide sturdy support and stability for my very flat feet with zero arches. My custom orthotics easily fit these shoes. In the beginning my no-show socks would be pulled under my heel, but that has stopped after I have worn them for a week and broken them in a bit. It is nice to have stylish shoes to wear for errands instead of clunky medical-looking Drews which I only wear inside my own home.
I bought these for my father-in-law and had them shipped directly to his nursing home. He loves the shoes. They fit well, look nice, and give him the support he needs. Shipping was fast. Very happy with Zappos.
I have very wide feet. To make things worse, they are also very short. No shoe company make shoes that fit right for me, so I have to resort to wearing sandals and slides since they tend to be wider than shoes. I got these because they also have velcro adjustments. As such, my pinkie toe still hangs over the edge of the sandal, but it's tolerable. Don't know what these slides are intended for...shower, beach, pool? Don't know. These don't look good enough to wear going out. They are not for walking. They don't seem to be completely water-proof. These sandals are very light, but they also feel hot because of the synthetic material. In fact, the cheap thong flip flop sandal I got from KMart for a few dollars is more comfortable than these. Would I pay full price for these? No. Zappos gave me a promo code to spend, so I splurged on these.
I have to wear motion control shoes all the time and found the original 928 clunky and awful to wear with a dress. Although, these are not what I prefer to wear with a dress or skirt they are more feminine looking than the original. The heel is not as high, the collar is not so wide, and they don't make my foot look wider than they are. The lower heel prevents unwanted pressure on the ball of my foot.
My hubby loves them. He wears these all the time. He does have some ankle issues, which do not bother him when wearing the shoes.
