I do a lot of walking. These shoes fit perfectly right away. They are very comfortable and give support in all the right places, as I tend to pronate and they make my arches feel supported. They are also lightweight, so you don't feel like you're carrying 10 pounds. They are the best shoes all around I've had in a long time.
These are shoes for the gym or everyday walking. I have to say that I also put an insole inside & buy half a size larger than I require. But....I have not put the insole in yet! they fit fine & I feel no pain as they are very well designed!
