Looking good in Amherst
I have 2 different pairs of these. Very comfortable shoe. I recommend these to people who have feet problems.
Recently at Heel to Toe in Urbana IL to pick up new orthotics; shoes had been ordered when there 5 weeks ago. - long story short: this shoe is the best fitting, best support ever; better than the New Balance I have worn for years. I will tout Drew shoes to all I meet esp those w/feet problems.. Also purchased a pair of brown with a sort of design in leather for "dress". Love them too. Your two insole options are the best esp for someone wearing orthotics.
I ordered this shoe after the site recommended this for plantar fasciitis. The shoe looks well made, but my foot pain got considerably worse after a week of use. The company refused to refund the money. Neither the returns personnel nor the manager were helpful in any way. I would urge the buyer to visit other reputable shoe companies and avoid buying from a company which does not care about its customers!
Great with orthotics
I wear orthotics and AFOs so my feet are competing for wiggle room inside my shoes. These shoes accommodate all my inserts and give me plenty of wiggle room. At first, they were difficult to lace them up but with use, the leather has softened.
A Very Sturdy Shoe
I love the look of this sneaker. It is a bit heavy BUT it is very supportive and comfortable ... and looks good!
