I asked a fitness trainer friend what shoes I should get to accommodate the fact that my work keeps me on my feet for 12 hours a day. She recommended Reebok in general and these shoes in particular. I was skeptical until I tried them on. They are lightweight, have phenomenal support for the balls of the feet and really keep feet, legs and hips from aching at the end of the day, I bought two pairs just to make sure I would have them when I need them. I love these shoes.
