Thank you for your feedback.
I've tried other styles in the Kalso line but the only ones that fit well are the elastic backs.
The negative heel was very comfortable and worked wonders for my lower back pain!
The description is spot on as far as wearability.

Product Description

The Kalsø Earth® Shoe Prosper Vegan features a breathable microfiber upper, soft collapsible heel for slip-on ease, and the trademark "negative heel" sole found in every Kalsø Earth® Shoe. This sport casual is built to both maximize wellness, and ensure you'll look great while doing so. It's a good day when blending trendy styling and body-aligning comfort helps to not only ensure you'll thrive, but also Prosper. •Original "negative heel" design sets heels slightly lower than toes•Mimics walking barefoot in sand by naturally positioning body over frame •Better walking motion helps improve posture and reduce joint stress

What started in Denmark in the late 1960's set off a global frenzy in early 1970 - the introduction of a line of comfortable shoes based on the simple principles of everyday, whole-body wellness. Shoes developed by a then-little-known Danish yoga instructor, Anne KalsØ. Shoes with a negative heel based on the popular yoga "Mountain" pose, designed to mimic walking barefoot in the sand by naturally positioning the body over the frame. Launching on April 1st - the first "Earth Day" - KalsØ Earth Shoes would signal the humble beginnings of wellness footwear as we know it today.

    So, this would be my second pair to own if I was not sending them back. Like the picture, my first pair had a nice foot cupping insole that is a brown tannish color. With this order, I received a pair with a poor excuse for an insert to support my foot, totally not achieving the dropped heel ideal of Kalso Earth. I will be returning and trying to find a company that sells the actual shoe in its entirety. I am including a picture of my old left shoe and the new left shoe.

    Size: 9.5 B(M) USColor: Dark Grey Verified Purchase
    Exactly what I was looking for, lightweight & flexible; great price too. The reason for the 4 start rating is because of the sizing. I ordered 8.5M which is the same size I have for every other pair of Earth & Kalso's that I own (12+ pairs). I could not even get my foot all the way in even without socks. I returned them and ordered the 9M and again had to return them but at least got my feet in that time. I sent them back again and ordered the 9.5M - they arrived today and fit fine at last! Handling the returns and exchanges was very easy and very quick. 5 Stars for the customer service!

    VERY disappointed with these Earth shoes. What has happened to the wide toe box that Earth shoes were known for? I have 3 pairs of Earth shoes, which are probably 5 years old (all size 8.5), and have loved them. These new shoes are way too narrow, way too small, and don't have a wide toe box to accommodate my bunion & hammer toe . I couldn't even get my foot into them. I gave them to my daughter. Please go back to the wide toe box!! They were pretty and light weight, but that's about it.

    I have arthritis in my right hip and Earth Shoes are the only shoes that seem to relieve the pain in my hip during long walks. I LOVE these sneakers--I have one pair in gray, and I'm thinking of buying another pair just so I don't have to bring my gray ones to work whenever I want to walk at lunch, which is often.

    I also have a leather pair of earth shoes, which I bought about a year ago--I also wear those often, especially on rainy days when my hip pain is worse.

    And yes, I did have a pair in the 1970s. They were tan Mary Jane's. I didn't keep them for long because I thought they were so ugly. Today's Earth Shoes are much better looking and designed better. Give them a try--especially if you have arthritis in one (or both) of your hips!

    I first purchased these shoes two years ago and loved them. Have just bought a new pair. Previously I bought a 9 this time I had to get a 9.5 they are running smaller than before. Also, they now have a cheap flimsy insole with no arch support. Will keep the shoe because I like the design but will purchase insoles. Luckily these cheap ones are removable. First time I have had an issue with Earth shoes.

    I was blown away by how light weight these shoes were when I opened the package. The do fit closer to the toes than other shoes in my size. They are very breathable and I don't feel like I have shoes on. My only issue is the fact that I needed to put my arch supports in and they are a very tight fit in the shoe.

    I have a pair of Relieve sneakers from Kalso and love them. However, these pair have NO cushion under the heel so I have to send them back.

    The prosper style did not fit properly. Because of back of heel design (elastic), shoe slipped off back of feet. Not the same comfort or support as original earth shoes. Based on previous experience with original earth shoes, very excited about receiving new pair. Quickly disappointed in this shoe/product.
