I bought these in an emergency while I was on a trip. I just wanted something that would cover my feet and look somewhat decent for a fancy dinner we were attending. Much to my surprise, these were not only stylish and affordable, but they were easily the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned! I even got complements on how nice they looked throughout the evening! To boot, they've also proven to be durable too! It might be the color, but somehow they seem to resist getting dirty as well as I wear these things daily and they still look new after 6 months. A word to the wise, though. Because the shoes stretch, you'll want to buy these a full to a full-and-a-half shoe size DOWN from what you normally wear. This worked to my benefit because Walmart doesn't normally carry size 14 (my normal size), but they have these in abundance in size 13. To give you an idea of how much I love these shoes, I've now donated all of my other shoes (aside from my dress shoes) in favor of various styles of these shoes. You really can't go wrong here; it's the perfect balance of value, comfort and style. If these came in a dress shoe, I'd ditch all of my other dress shoes for these. They're that comfortable.
