Following a metatarsal injury, my podiatrist ordered "offloading weight" from the ball of the foot. When I brought these shoes in for his opinion, he was delighted; he thought they were perfect to get me back off the painful metatarsal area. While not a true "negative heel" shoe, this is the closest thing, with the lowered heel cup. What relief! Broke them in by wearing them around the house a couple of days, until I hardly knew I had any shoes on (they were so comfortable). I would highly recommend these for anyone who wants comfort, better alignment, and excellent arch support. If you walk a lot on hard floors or sidewalks, however, add cushioning via socks or an even pad.
