Bear in mind that I am no expert when it comes to shoes. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what the intended purpose of these shoes is. They have good traction, appear to be constructed well, have a sturdy feeling heal, and hug your feet nicely (excellent fit for me ~ narrow foot with a high arch). Having said that, the padding on the forefoot is minimal (don't know if this would be an issue for you) .I have custom orthotics in mine...they fit in the shoe nicely, which is a plus. The shoe doesn't appear to have any inherent arch support though...I don't know if this is standard on shoes of this type. I also don't think it has much lateral support, which could potentially be a problem for ankles. I would not recommend this shoe to anyone wanting to carry a heavy pack, but see no reason for complaint otherwise. Pretty nice looking shoe.
