I work in a funeral home and with that I need to be in comfort shoes. We do a ton of walking, pushing, pulling, heavy lifting and standing with removals from homes, nursing homes, hospitalsand medical examiners offices, on top of transporting, embalming, dressing. When I first started I would use flats and wedges and not only did I have blisters, but my legs and back would hurt so bad. I finally got a pair of these and I could not be more happy. They are beyond comfortable, go with my suits, no blisters and cover my foot fully which is a definite necessity in this field.
