These shoes are so darn unique that they gather lots of admiring eyes. They have a cushioned bottom which is efficient, but I wouldn't wear these if you are planning on walking super long distances - for that take your amped up sneakers instead. These are great as statement shoes, adding a cool/fun/unique accent to an outfit without relying on super loud colors. In fact, the bear hug design on the gray background with just tiny touches of orange matches with just about anything you throw on. Strongly recommended.
I suffer from peripheral neuropathy as finding any shoe comfortable to have on my feet for more than 10 minutes is a real problem, and walking can be a nightmare. I saw these online and thought I would give them a try. They turned out to be my 'go too' shoes to wear with jeans, shorts etc. and my two puppies are loving them as well, is our daily walks don't end with an 'I'm sorry guys, but we have to back??.' Also they are super cute and every one wants to know where I bought them.
