I don't like to give bad reviews. The shoe fits to size but does not last long. We have had to purchase 3 pair in the less than a year. The only time they are worn is to work. I called customer service and reported this. They are too expensive to have to replace so often. We are looking for another brand.
Wears this shoe: To work. My work is in a freezer.
