Wow! Skeptical? Yes. Surprised? Yes. I am totally amazed at these shoes. I have mobility problems, knee replacement, spine surgery, and diabetes, hammertoe, and ...well let's just say that this pair of shoes I received are off the charts. I already notice my toes are not hurting, my walking is less painful, and fatigue is less. Comfortable, and very well built. Quick and accurate customer service, shipped and on my doorstep within 4 days. I am going to order another pair in the immediate future for sure. For all of you that may have your doubts, you owe it to yourself to get a pair of these.
