I won't say these are the cutest shoes I own, but they are VERY comfortable. I am on my feet a lot at work walking and standing and the insoles on these are great. They have really good arch support and at the end of the day, my feet aren't tired. The first couple of days I wore them they seemed really tight, but they get more loose as you wear them and the insole fits to your foot. The looks just remind me of the toddler tennis shoes with the toe bumper guards. But my coworkers say they don't look bad at all (and believe me they would tell me). OVerall, these are great shoes for walking and standing and I would definitely buy another pair.
