As a student studying abroad, I needed to bring a pair of shoes with me that were comfortable, durable and looked good with a lot of different outfits. I brought both my converse and this pair of Journey Lites. I first wore my converse in Ireland and then decided to try these shoes in London and the difference was unbelievable! My feet felt cramped and uncomfortable in the converse while in these shoes i was extremely comfortable. I used the precise fit to adjust the shoes to the wide setting, and they fit very true to size. There was no break-in period which was great because I had only brought one pair of shoes to London with me. It is a great all around shoe because even when it rained my feet didn't get wet. Highly recommend for traveling, lite hiking or whenever you know you are going to do a lot of walking. My feet didn't get tired the entire trip!
