My first slip on of the shoe was uncomfortable due to the most arch support I’ve ever experienced. I thought it was too much. I walked in the shoes inside the house for several days about 30 minutes each day. I was on the fence, are these for me or not? I chanced it and wore them to work one day. They are GREAT!! Best arch support ever. I can stand for long periods of time and walk a long distance. So happy I didn’t give up on the trial.
