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.
Daniel Green Portia cushion-y, stretches out

Reviewer: Amy from Wisconsin
I normally wear a size 9.5 and ordered these in the 9 because I was afraid they would stretch out too much and be too big if I went with a larger size. Within a couple hours of wearing them they had stretched out to fit right. The memory foam is great. Super cushy for the first few hours and then they mold to fit your foot. This leaves a nice amount of arch support. I can walk around the house all day in them without my feet started to ache. They are also super warm.

Reviewer: E. R. from Decatur, Il
Ordered 2 pair 1 for my college age daughter in purple ordered 1/2 size up she loves them and plans to wear them around campus. I am returning mine my foot is wide and these were a little too narrow. Also felt the boot was too tall for me, I'm only 5' and the boot was a little taller than the bend of my knee. We both love the look of the boot; it's a great value.
