I was advised to get a rocker sole style shoe from my podiatrist, for a knee problem. The shoes are very comfortable, they are a snug fit and do seem to have reduced the leg pain I was experiencing. They look nice, if not a little like school shoes (I am 54!). It would be great if a more "dressy" style was available with the rocker sole for evening wear as these would not be suitable for "occasion" wear ... however great for every day. The only thing I have noticed, is that on certain tile floors (this has happened to me in two restaurants so far, have not experienced it elsewhere) that the soles are very slippy so you have to take extra care if you are on a "slippy" floor that somehow disagrees with the material of the soles. Overall, I am extremely happy to have found these shoes - they do exactly what I need them to do, and I would recommend them.
