I am a fitness instructor and was looking for a good pair of shoes that give me the support and cushion I need to get through the day. These shoe meet and exceed my expections. They are so comfortable and give the support I need. I no longer longer have joint or foot pains after a long day of classes. I never thought I would be able to find the perfect pair shoes...but I just did!! I hope they continue to keep them around for many more years!!
