The shoe is satisfactory. I have a tough time finding shoes that fit because they need to accept an orthotic (my arches are abnormally high), I have a neuroma at the top of my left foot (that's why straps are better than laces), fasciatis (sp?) and my bad foot is bigger than my good foot. So I make compromises. This shoe is one of very few on the market that allows me to do that without causing pain. And since manufacturing moved overseas, I find that the same shoe in the same size doesn't always fit me the same way. I am one frustrated shoe buyer and this P.W. Minor shoe does an acceptable job of relieving that frustration.
