Wearing these shoes in the hospital setting, for 12 hours a day, 5 days a week, long hallways, up and down stairs, with a past history of plantar fasciitis. My feet, legs, and back do not hurt being in these shoes. They are providing me with the support and comfort I need with being on my feet all day. I like the color black, goes with the black slacks. The circular pads on the bottom of the shoes have remained full, have not deflated like other shoes I have worn. Would recommend these shoes.
