At last! A pair of comfortable shoes I can wear for a long period of time. After reading the reviews on size I decided to get a size 7, a size bigger than normal and they fit beautifully. I admit to having a bunion [yuk] and these shoes are wide enough to accommodate it . When you first put the shoes on the insoles feels a bit hard, but when they get warmed up they are really comfortable and very light. I was a bit wary of the price, a bit more than I usually pay, but they are worth every penny. I have not tested the waterproofing yet, no doubt that will soon be possible.
