I'm so happy I got these! First, they're really cool looking. They're comfy, breathable, and light. The footbed is wide enough that I could put my insert in without making the shoe feel a size smaller. However, they're comfy enough that I don't even need the footbed. I have now walked a couple miles, stood for long periods of time, and sat in a car for hours without swelling, pain, plantar fasciitis, or any form of uncomfortableness. My recurring sciatica hasn't even shown back up since I started wearing these. I think I'll be buying another pair because they're so great! I love them, and I don't find them weird looking at all. One commentor said they had an odd shape, but I don't find that to be true.
