Great walking shoe for travel!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these shoes at nearly the last minute before leaving on a 10-day vacation, since I wasn't sure if any of the shoes in my closet could hold up to all the walking I had planned. These shoes were very comfortable right out of the box, and did not need much, if any, breaking in. I used them in rotation with a pair of New Balance sneakers and a pair of Teva sandals, and these were by far the most supportive shoes for my relatively high arches. The laces weren't quite as secure as the description claims, but once I got a feel for the tightness I liked, I was able to double-knot and had no problems with laces coming undone. I was hesitant about spending $100 on a pair of shoes, but these fit so perfectly and seem quite durable, so I have no regrets!
