Purchased these in another color(Black) 5 years ago. They last a long time, as they’ve been through yardwork, water logged on a rocky beach and much more. Worth the price. I have relatively high arches and would say these have good arch support and straps do not rub. Side note-You can purchase these through the Walking Store and order these with more arch support. However, the straps are tighter and rub. I’m guessing the company has not compensated a slightly longer strap on the “higher” arch support.
