I have mild arthritis in my lower back and standing still can be painful if for a long period of time. I bought this to use for travel when standing on lines for tours, museums, planes, trains, etc. and it really helped. Folding nicely into a large purse of small carry on bag is a plus since I didn't need it all the time. It felt very stable and had a small, but somewhat useless plastic 'carry case': use a sturdy rubber band or other strap to keep it from 'popping' open when you store it. The pretty floral makes it look so much nicer than your usual 'granny cane'.
I faced a couple of surgeries that meant I would need to use a cane. Even tho I had a hospital issued cane, I wanted something pretty that I would feel less like an invalid. I found this cheery cane did the trick! BTW, it is adjustable so you can fit it to you height perfectly.
I bought this for my sister-in-law who has been having problems with her leg. She called today and said how delighted she was with the cane and how much it helps her. She especially liked that it had the floral design. Quick shipping and a highly recommended item.
My first experience with a cane. I had hurt my back and needed one for those days when my back was really bothering me. Very sturdy and easily adjustable made this the perfect choice.

It's so nice to finally have a cane that has a lady-like appearance while also completely sturdy. The feminine design works better with my wardrobe choices than the standard black folding cane. Those black canes have always slightly depressed me, as I've felt they age me. Since I'm a little embarrassed to be carrying a cane, and I don't need one all of the time, it's nice to be able to fold it away when not in use, and this folds to a quite compact size. When unfolded, it clicks into walking mode in a flash, and you can be confident that it's not going to buckle or otherwise fail on you. The wooden handle could be a bit more durable, as I found mine to be chipped and to have a couple minor dents after just one ten day holiday, but I was also not at all careful with it, allowing it to bang around quite a bit. All in all, I can report that I'm very pleased with this cane, and I'll be purchasing a second one as a spare...not because I think it will wear out, but only so I have one at work and at home.
