I'm a pharmacist and I stand on my feet 10 hours a day. These are very comfortable and feel good to walk in too. I usually wear Asics but I always get a hole where my big toe is (my smartypants husband says I need to cut my toenails LOL). I was hoping this strip on the end would come to wear my big toe is but it doesn't. I was also hoping it would be more leather material on that part but it's cloth. I love these shoes but I have to say this is the most money I've ever spent on a pair of tennis shoes. So far I'm very happy with them though.
