For people who need a large toebox, BUY THIS!
"I have a strange foot, my toebox is wide, but then my foot narrows down to a thin heel. Often men's shoes are the only thing that feels comfortable, but I walk out of the heels of the shoes!
Finding athletic shoes has been a nightmare. This shoe is amazing, it's as if it was made for my foot. It has plenty of room in the toe and doesn't rub anywhere. The heels cups nicely and although there is a tiny bit of play, it's not worth talking about.
It's a "form fitting" shoe and more like a second skin than a thick-soled shoe. I think I'd use it for walking and definitely for cardio stuff and regular wear, but I wouldn't use it for anything that needs ultra high-impact resistance. The soles are very soft and flexible and after wearing them for a while, I think that if you wear these for 16-20 hours a week, they'll probably be gone in a year, maybe 9 months.
Aesthetically, they are feminine, but not exactly girly. Because of the large toebox, they look a little like flippers, and for people who don't have height, but have larger feet, it might look a little funny. Not something I'd wear to a "smart casual" place, but good enough.
That being said, I am going to buy more of these and hopefully find them in a few colors. Talking about color, the accent color (so purple for what I chose) is what's on the inside of the shoe. A very nice addition, although only appreciated by the wearer!
