Comfortable walking shoe but one poor design area

Verified Buyer Reviewed by MissEllen from South Carolina on Saturday, June 27, 2015
These shoes run true to size. The footbed is rubber with some cushion to it, so it is waterproof and comfortable to walk in. The top toe area is a nylon mesh which allows your feet/toes to breath which makes these shoes ideal for hot days.

The ankle strap is the only problem with these shoes. The strap is made of a cotton ribbon type fabric on the top and a faux leather on the underside against your skin, so it has no give to it. What they did when they designed the shoe was to insert a half inch elastic band underneath the cotton ribbon on one small area on the inside ankle area of the shoe to allow the ankle strap to give when you move but only to a point since it is still connect by an inch of cotton ribbon over the elastic area. Since it was too tight for me to wear, I cut the elastic band (which is not visible) which then allow the ankle strap to be looser. Luckily, it is loose enough now and is just fine.

A minor modification for the shoe and worth it for the comfort.
