They were massively discounted in the Amazon January deals. Realistically they are only worth the reduced price, if I had paid more I would have gone to the expense and time to send them back. They are a reasonably wide fitting but small in length; because of this they feel as though they are about to fall off any moment. The worst aspect is the thinness of the sole, the ribbed rubber adds to the general harsh feeling- like walking on cardboard. I have Rockport shoes, they are well made and comfortable. I can't understand why a manufacturer would spoil their good reputation on a product such as this.
