I got these for my first year in nursing school. They were like walking on clouds when I first wore them. I wear them 2x a week (for lab and clinicals). I am now into my second semester and the shoes make me feet hurt unbearably. My feet are the classic size 6 normal width; I sized up to 6.5 to accommodate swelling. However, the shoes are too tight around the ankle and the top of my feet. My feet doesn't breathe in these so it feels really hot and sweaty very quickly. I also don't think there is much support. The most painful area is at the balls of my feet. Everyone's foot is different, but I do recommend finding shoes that has better ventilation and support.
