The term comfortable, as employed in the footwear industry, refers to footwear specially designed to provide adequate foot support or relief from discomfort when walking or running. The signature features of comfortable footwear are padded footbeds, broader toe boxes, contoured footbeds that follow the shape of the foot, shorter heel heights, flexible soles, greater arch support, polyurethane outer soles, and in some cases, rubber nubs on the soles to increase traction.
Footwear made of flexible material, typically featuring a sole made of rubber. Sneakers were originally sporting apparel, but are today worn much more widely as casual footwear.

I like the shoes that I bought. Over the past few years, I have had four (4) pairs of the World Tour Classics (three brown pair and one black pair.) These shoes are so comfortable that I don't wear many other shoes. Because of my age I don't like to wear leather soled shoes anymore. These shoes never have to be "broken in", they are comfortable the first time I put them on.
