This pair of shoes is very nice, but I found the ratings hard to make. The shoes are actually a bit roomier than normal, which I liked, but they still feel true to size even though one might say they are a bit larger and wider than the norm.
I know nothing about promation control so I have no opinion in that regard. However, I have some physical difficulties and these shoes have filled my comfort needs extremely well. I now wish that they came in another color so I would be tempted to order another pair!
