Selling Like Hotcakes (For Pancakes?)
on June 11, 2013
If you're like me with feet shaped like pancakes, and you find most shoe companies' so-called "wide" shoes are like wearing tightened vises, then these sandals are for you! The Velcro closures actually do NOT have to be extended to the last millimeter of Velcro to fit into them - really! Now I can throw away my Adidas slip-on sliders with 2" of unused Velcro!!
I wear a 10-1/2 5E to 6E shoe and ordered these in the available size 11 4E. I only had to expose about 1/2" of unused Velcro to secure them comfortably on my feet. The footbed is very comfortable with plenty of cushion, yet still firm enough not to compress and permanently flatten like cheap flip-flops (I'm heavy). The footbed isn't as thick as my Adidas sliders, but they feel just as comfortable with regard to cushioning.
I can't speak to durability, yet, since I just got them. I'm expecting them to last, though, based on my past New Balance experience (as NB is the ONLY shoe company that seems to actually give a hoot about making truly wide shoes, and made well).
In conclusion, if you have truly wide feet, and you're tired of soreness and numbness from so-called "wide" shoes, get these while they're still in stock. I'm very glad I did.
P.S. Oh, if you don't have super-wide feet I'm sure you'll also love the quality - just get the "normal human" D width. Ha!
