I'm a veterinary technician in a very busy practice and work 10-12 hour shifts, sometimes longer. I've tried several types of sneakers, but my feet always hurt by lunch time. I have high arches and it's often difficult to find shoes with the right support. After reading online reviews, I decided to give these a try. I love them! I tried them on at the store and didn't want to take them off. I've had them for about a month, and chose the brown tooled leather since I wanted to be able to wear them with everything, not just my scrubs. I haven't worn any other shoes since. I was skeptical at first because they aren't pillow-soft on the inside, but it turns out that it's better this way. My feet never hurt anymore. I recommend them to everyone, and I plan to buy more since they come in so many colors.
