I've been searching for a pair of sneakers for a few years now and could not find any that felt comfortable. I gave these a try because some people with flat feet said they liked them and since my feet a nearly flat, it sounded good. They are comfy, for now. Hope the memory foam insoles don't forget how they're supposed to work. Look good too. Nothing ridiculous about them. Don't know how long they'll hold up. Nothing seems made as well as it used to, so we settle for what can we get. Best pair of sneakers I ever had were a pair of Warrior cross-trainers. This was before New Balance bought them out and destroyed the quality. Oh well. I still have them after about seven years or so. Wore them every day for three years and have continued to use them for mowing and gardening. Although the soles are smooth and slippery, they are still in one piece.
