I tried these shoes because they were on a review as a good walking shoe. I have two sores on the top of my left foot where something inside the shoe was rubbing. It became uncomfortable to wear them. I have never had a shoe do that before. It's almost like there is some kind of scratchy velcro type stuff inside the shoe near the end of the tongue that rubs my foot. Definitely would not purchase again...
Pros: lightweight, breathable
Cons: uncomfortable, poor cushioning

The shoe is very light and was comfortable from the very beginning. Did not have to break them in. The shoe was true to size.
Pros: lightweight, good arch support, durable, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable
