A knee operation, subsequent arthritis, bunions, and the need for arch support all created the perfect storm for major foot and leg pain. I tried Finn Comfort in an effort to place a smile on my face once again. When I first put the shoes on, I was skeptical about their fit. As I wore them, however, the sole began to mold to my feet, or so it seemed. The toe box is ample for everything I have going on with my wide feet, comfortable even. One thing I noticed, however, is that the sole of the shoe seems minimalistic. I really wanted a soft supportive shoe, one that would make me forget I have feet at all, but the sole in these shoes did not do that for me. I have since ordered the "soft insoles" from Finn Comfort and while they are softer, they are not exactly what I was looking for. These are by far the most comfortable shoe I have worn in years. With all of my maladies, I just thank my lucky stars that the German "cobblers" are still creating great quality shoes. Perhaps before I buy the next pair, I will call the company and get recommendations about the best shoe for me. I love the looks of the the Linz and the quality is out of this world.
