I really wanted these shoes to work for me because of the glowing reviews. They are are incredibly light and, in the short time I wore them around the house to try them out, they seemed like they would be comfortable to stand in. They won't work for me, however, because they wear like flip flops. Some reviewers implied that they didn't, but, when I walked in them, they even made that distinctive flip-flop sound as they slid off my heels. Unfortunately, I need shoes that stay on my feet better. Sizing: if you are between sizes, go smaller. I tried both.
