I read some reviews and thought I would try Drew Paradise II (double depth), because I was beginning to have trouble with the shoelaces staying tight on my Drew Blaxer Plus II which was my "standard" shoe for several years. I was afraid to try a new shoe style because, (1) they aren't cheap and (2) my feet are really bad, being overweight and needing with high orthodics for high arches. Well, These are terrific. They fit perfectly, easy to secure with the straps, and they stay in place. I ended up purchasing 2 more pairs in different colors! These are great walking shoes, and being older with balance problems, I don't have to worry about the laces losening and tripping on them -- which I have done a couple of times with my lace-up Drew Blazers. I suggest trying this if you have high arches and problem feet.
