These shoes are made for someone younger than I am (as are most fashions), so everything I say should be put in that context. (That's why I gave them four stars.) I don't find these shoes very comfortable... and they seem a bit wobbly. So although I plan to keep them, I certainly won't be walking long distances in them. I wish manufacturers and designers would start designing and making shoes much like this but with slightly lower lift, so that women "of a certain age" can be stylish and walk comfortably without worrying about turning an ankle. That said, these are better than most comparable shoes in terms of stability and comfort; and I do like the way they look. As for fit, they're pretty good. I have high arches and very high insteps, and I am not easy to fit. So I'm keeping them, and hoping for the best.
