Closeouts. Go-anywhere looks on the outside and amazingly comfortable inside, Wolverine's Aurora iCS slip-resistant oxford shoes allow you to easily personalize the amount of cushioning and support you get with an adjustable iCS disk in the heel.

I got a pair of these elsewhere in black. I found a couple things that bugged me but not enough to send them back. I have a high arch/instep, wide across the toes and a narrow heal. These shoes fit alright in the toe box and heal but the seam across the tongue sort of dug into my instep... and the tongue itself sort of stabbed at my ankles when I walked.
My solution is simple, coat them with some neatsfoot oil or mink oil. Allow to sit for a while. Then shove a shoe stretcher in the shoe and expand it... then on top where the seam hits the instep... shove a deep bowl soup spoon (or table spoon, use two if you need to) in there upside down under the seam and on top of the stretcher,... tie the laces. I solved the tongue stabbing issue by rolling the tongue toward the toes and holding it in place with a couple small binder clips. After a for 15 to 30 minutes remove and test fit the shoe. Repeat the stretch if needed.
DIY for the win! (and savings in the pocket) I'm thinking about getting a white pair to paint with some leather paint and dye.

I bought these shoes in black for catering and love them.
They are more attractive than they look and did not have to break them in at all.
I have plantar fasciitis and though it still hurts, it hurts less.
I would order these again and the price was great!!!

The iCS disk in the heel is just a selling point. Really didn't make much difference in the comfort of the shoe. Not quite wide enough for my foot, but there is wiggle room for the toes. So the toe box is nice for long wearing but the arch area is narrower. Not a very attractive shoe, but I bought them for the slip resistance and that is good.
