I have RA, particularly bad in my feet, and was searching for work shoes with a wide toe box. I am in the medical profession and am on my feet for 12+ hours on my workdays. These showed up on my search. I was skeptical, but thought I can always return them. Like a lot of the reviewers here, I've also been told I need a lot of arch support as I have high arches. Unlike a lot of the reviews, I am not a runner and really know nothing about the the barefoot movement. After I placed the order, I read more and more reviews and was beginning to think these would not work at all, that my feet would hurt worse wearing them all day at work. Boy, was I wrong. I've tried so so many shoes, including Dansko, Shoes for Crews, Birkis, Crocs etc. Birkis have worked the best for me for non-work shoes...I have tons of them, but my feet, particularly my metatarsals, and legs would still hurt after working two 12 hour days in a row, to the point where I could hardly walk on my days off. When they arrived, I tried them on and wore them around the house for a few hours. I was really surprised at how comfortable I found them. Tons of toe room and there is a little bit of an arch support, at least that's how my feet felt wearing them. I took them to work and was planning on breaking them in slowly, as some of the reviewers warned to start slowly if you're not used to the barefoot style of shoe. I ended up wearing them for 8 hours the first day and only changed shoes because I didn't want to overdo and have my knees, shins, ankles, etc., hurt because I was using parts of my muscles I wasn't used to due to the type of shoe. I couldn't believe it! The only thing bothering me after 8 hours was my metatarsals, but it wasn't the same kind of pain I would have after wearing other shoes....I would feel like my toes had been in a vise. It wasn't the same arthritis pain....in fact it wasn't really pain at all. I could just feel that my metatarsals had been working in a way they haven't with other shoes. They were just a little sore; a 5 on a 1-10 scale. That night I rubbed them with pain cream and woke up pain free. I wore the shoes the next day for my entire shift without any issues. I am so happy that I have finally found a shoe I can wear when I am on my feet for hours and hours on hard floors. I am so impressed, I ordered 2 more pairs. I cannot recommend these shoes highly enough, especially if you have issues like arthritis, or just wide feet. I ordered the size I normally would, 9.5, and the fit is perfect. No squished toes! No aching arches! The colors and styles they come in are a bonus. I normally don't write long reviews, but I wanted to let people who have arthritis in their feet, as I do, know that these shoes may be what they've been looking for. After having spent so much money on shoes trying to find a pair that would not hurt my feet after wearing for hours, I am ecstatic. Try them!!!

I ordered these after seeing them in a magazine and they had gotten great reviews. They are the lightest show I've ever owned, while still providing support and cushion in my heel. I have a previously broken foot, so I need a good amount of support when walking distances, and these hit that mark too. Overall, worth every penny!

These are the best fitting gym shoe I have ever had. Lightweight, great arch support and great room for the toes.

i'm probably an 8.5 wide, but I usually wear a 9 m. These have more room in the toe box than a traditional shoe, so they are sort of like a wide. I can wear an 8.5
Also, i found the toe box in the 9 to be too long and bent in a weird place as my foot bent. So I returned for an 8.5. The toes are a little cozy in the 8.5 but I like it. they really do feel like a glove on my foot.

Color is awesome! They are very thin and lightweight, very much a barefoot shoe. I also wear vibram five fingers so this is a perfect shoe for me.

These light weight cross trainers are great for many types of exercise. They fit the contours of my foot. They also were great for Zumba class, and walking sight seeing in Boston! They are very comfortable, and I love how pretty they are.

This item was perfect. I had tried them on in a store so I knew they ran 1/2 size bigger than I wore. So I ordered a size 8 although I wear an 8 1/2 it was great. Great color, fit and service

Okay, I have an enormous problem finding good shoes to workout in but not now that I've found these. They are light weight and yet sturdy and supportive. I have trouble with supination (feet roll outward) and really high arches and with these shoes my feet feel centered and supported. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE!

First, I LOVE Merrell shoes and was looking forward to another pair of comfortable shoes at a good price. This is the only pair of Merrell's I have tried that hurt my feet. I knew within 5 minutes these shoes had to go back. In fairness to Merrell's, I have issues with my right foot, but Merrell's is one of the few shoes that up til these, never hurt. If you need arch support, these are great. I need just the opposite, and these arch supports are built into the shoe, therefore not allowing me to cut out the arch. Too bad, these shoes were really cute!

Amazon was super fast in refunding the cost, btw.
