5 stars for fit - I have a sore achilles tendon, and these shoes fit great! The cushioning is fabulous and they are so comfortable to walk in, even for longer distances. I can wear them all day and my feet are not sore.
2 stars for quality - this is the second pair I have purchased in 2 months, and the velcro heel straps come apart from the leather within 3 week of purchase. Unfortunately I am past the allotted return time for these, now I'll have to take them to be repaired. For a shoe brand that emphasizes quality, and is rather pricey, these should not fall apart within 3 weeks. Surely the company can find a better way to secure the velcro.
