What a relief to find shoes that are comfortable for work. I purchased two pair of these from Shoebuy in different patterns. I have wide feet and have difficulty finding shoes that fit well. I usually have to go up a half size and hope they don't pinch too much, but with these the 8 1/2 wide fits my 8 1/2 wide feet well. One pair fits just right, the other pair is a little tighter across one instep than the other, but I have found this sort of inconsistency in manufacturing to be common among brands, so I didn't take off a star because I am so happy to have two pair of shoes I can alternate between at work. I often stand/run around 8-9 hours a day in the operating room, and need to be able to wipe "stuff" off my shoes, so to have TWO pair of shoes that don't make my feet hurt by the end of the day is fantastic!
