I just received this shoe and am delighted with it. I have problems with my feet with more structured shoes. This shoe provides the support I need but feels like I am wearing nothing at all. I really enjoy this shoe.

I bought these based on another review saying they would be good to use on an elliptical. Well, they're not. ZERO support or cushioning on the balls of the feet- which tend to go numb anyway on an elliptical. I lasted 10 minutes on the machine w/them. Also, they're shockingly cheap- both the quality and look. Seriously, Payless shoes are higher quality. Kelly Ripa should be ashamed of herself hawking this junk. Awful, just awful.

If they are comfortable, then I say keep them - the only reason I returned them is that they look a little cheap once you see them in person.

Comfortable, great support, tons of reflectors. If you run in gravel, these may be a poor choice for you, but I really can't think of anything else I don't love about them.

I have been wearing these shoes for about 3 weeks. I wear them every other day for elliptical or treadmill exercising. Since most of the upper of the shoe is mesh, it breathes well but doesn't have the support of a leather upper as the mesh is more "fluid" than leather. I love the more rounded toe because I hate my toes to be mashed together - even slightly. I added an extra insole and a peel and stick arch support to better suit my needs (I ordered up one whole size to accommodate these additions). I am most happy with these shoes because of the rounded toe.
