I am pleased with these shoes. The design of the foot bed stabilizes the foot on moderately uneven surfaces and it is easy to slip these on and off. The shoes work well with or without use of the heel straps, but the straps provide an extra measure of security and still allow for easy removal of the shoes. These shoes provide good support and would be fine for everyday walking around, but I got them to have by the backdoor for frequent excursions to the yard. For that, they are excellent.
