"I'm on my feet from 8 - 15 hours a day. I've worn them 4 days so far and they feel great. No foot or knee pain during the break in period. Feels like there's memory foam cushioning my feel. There's also no forced/hard arch or 'ball of the foot' support like in other orthopedic shoes. I can't wear those. I need soft yet consistent support that molds to my foot. Also the leather of the shoe is soft where it needs to be so the shoe doesn't grind into the top of my foot. So these were just what the doctor ordered!"
