Hard to find wide shoes and have to travel 25 miles to store that might have them. Had pair of Reebok, different model, that I bought to go on a vacation 5 years ago. Comfortable and I eventually started using them for work shoes. The heel finally gave out, my fault for just slipping them on. Took a chance on ordering these and really like them. They look good, lightweight, and FIT. I will be more careful with these and I'm sure they will last too.
