This is the second pair of Avia Elevate Athletic Shoes I've purchased. I usually wear Skechers, but their prices are not affordable since I've retired. Thought I'd try these and purchased them in black with pink accents. They were comfortable,having the memory foam. A few moths later, I bought the blue pair and am very satisfied. I like the fact it's a tie shoe and will give me the support I need. The 7 1/2, "B" width is true to size, but some may consider them a bit short. At first I felt this to be true but size 8 were too long/large. The more I wore the 7 1/2, the more comfortable they became. I would recommend this product.
