I never have liked the looks of these butt ugly things but my podiatrist told me to get a pair because of a foot problem. They do offer great support and curiousness for my poor broken foot. I find that when I walk my heel tends to extend over the inner sides and wants to roll in. This is because I have such a high instep that my foot does not go all the way in. I have about an inch of room in front of my big toe and my heel actually sticks out the back a little. Perhaps I should have gone with a larger size? The construction of these shoes is great and they are comfortable. I expect that I will continue to wear these around the house once my foot has healed because of the support they offer. I like them as slippers but not for walking any distance.
