As an Usher in the arts/entertainment industry, I'm on my feet between 3.5 to 10.0 hours per day. I'm required to wear black shoes so I bought these in black. The elastic expansion in this shoe allowed a great fit for my wide/swollen feet. The innersoles have a nice arch support without being too hard. The platform and heel are perfect too, as I cannot wear totally flat shoes. These are so comfy that they have replaced sneakers for me. I now own 3 pairs (including the clog-form of this shoe in 2 other colors). When I took my stress test last year, the doctor & nurse were amazed that I was able to do the test in these shoes. I even marched in my City's Labor Day Parade! Overall, some of the best shoes I've ever owned. Plan to buy more colors. Truly comfy!!!
