These shoes are wonderful. I have an ankle problem that requires good shoes and Spira fits the need.

Brands I'd also recommend: None for this kind of comfort.

These are probably the 8th pair of Spira shoes for me. They are very comfortable. I would say they are the best so far. I would love to have a second pair just for work. Zappos your delivery and service is unbelievable. I don't know how you do it! Five stars for Zappos

I purchased these shoes after seeing them cut open at a local store so I could visibly see the springs in them. I'm a female who is overweight, so I get tired easily. I also have knee problems. These shoes really take absorb the shock in my knees. I can jog now and run down the stairs without pain. I really think these springs work. I wore New Balance prior to these. Those were fine, but these seem better for shock absorption and cushion.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance, Brooks, Birkenstocks, Dansko

While this shoe is very comfortable, I don't quite get the spring thing. It doesn't feel that much different than other athletic shoes, but I am relying on the theory behind the construction to ease foot shock. I think they are worth the money, but I do wonder about wearing them through airport security. Love the idea of them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrell, Clarks

I love these shoes! I have really bad feet but am still very active, these shoes along with my orthotics allow me and my feet to continue to live an active life! When I put them on it's as if my feet sigh because of the relief! Before I bought the Spira Odyssey shoes my legs would ache, now because of the springs they never ache! Thank you Spira engineers for making such an excellent and good looking shoe!

These shoes are extremely comfortable. I work 12 hour shifts and my feet feel great at the end of the day. They are true to size (I have wide feet) and require no break-in period.

I bought this shoe because I'm 43 years old but still love to run, jump and play. I have chronic hip/pelvic and low back pain. The Spira Odyssey seems to absorb some of the impact. For the past 10 years or so, I had been wearing the Brooks Ariel for its support and stability. I lose a little in the support/stability areas but gain in the impact absorbtion with the Odyssey

I have been wearing these shoes for 7+ years...I have arthritis and feel 30 years younger when I wear them...I wear them everywhere except to weddings! I wear them with Khakis and jeans a lot. I've had ankle/arthritis problems and with these I can walk up to about 2 1/2 miles a day...I like these better than the Genesis shoes (the next price up) because these are lighter weight and easier on my ankles...and more flexible. I'm 59 and I just don't buy extra clothes I don't need...instead I spend the money on these and I enjoy my whole life more!

I absolutely love these shoes! I have chronic lower back pain and it typically flares up when I walk...since wearing these shoes I have not had a flare up and can comfortably walk longer and with no effort. I walk about 3 miles a day for exercise and that's not counting all the walking I do throughout the day at work! I plan on purchasing another pair soon. I wish they were a little more fashionable but that is so far down my wish list.

Over the past 35 (about) years I have tried & used numerous styles of almost all the athletic shoe brands available. These are the most fantastic shoes I've ever had. I always get 1/2 size larger than regular shoes and these are perfect using that formula; length, width, box width, heel width. They aren't tight across the front of my foot; my toes have plenty of room (no numb toes after exercise); heels stay in place (no slipping). I wouldn't mind if the tongues were slightly longer but certainly usable the way they are. I thought they would be kind of a gimmick. They are not. My endurance is increased, my posture is improved, my legs and feet are happy. I have purchased another pair immediately before they change the styles (which always happens). I am very very pleased with this purchase, and as always, pleased beyond compare with Zappos!

These shoes are quite comfortable and very light and with good support. The balls of my feet were a little sore the first few times I wore them but that seemed to get better. I probably will buy these again.
