  • New Balance by MW665 Overall Rated: 5 stars! Comfort Rated: 5 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Jan 22, 2015 Jess Magana from Aurora, IL

    I bought these shoes for my dad who has wide feet, he loves them. The width is perfect and they are comfortable for him to walk in. We have bought him many different brands with no success until now.

  • Brooks by Ariel '14 Overall Rated: 5 stars! Comfort Rated: 5 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Jan 22, 2015 Anonymous from Waldport, OR

    I love these shoes! I have not taken them off since they arrived, a few days ago. It is nearly impossible to get a shoe to fit me comfortable because of a Tailor's (pinkie side) bunion. Even the men's 4x wide cut into it, because they taper toward the mid foot. The shape of the last is perfect for me, also for my smaller bunion on the big toe side. This is the only shoe I've found where the last is shaped right for me. Add to that good cushioning, a nice arch support, gently pronation correction, and it is truly one of the most comfortable shoes I've found. Also, the toe is not pointy, unlike the toe of my NB shoe which is almost as comfortable, but which make me sore in the 1st mtp joint after a while. Unlike many orthopedic shoes, the heel is not too high. And most important to me, it is vegan. It is practically unheard of to find a vegan shoe this nice, and that also fits hard-to-fit feet! I couldn't be happier. And Tudors to Zappos for their endless patience in allowing me to try on and return a zillion shoes before finding these,their prompt shipping, and their exceptional customer service! To Brooks I ask that you never stop making this shoe, and could you please bring it out in a Gore-Tex version?

  • Nike by FS Lite Run 2 Overall Rated: 5 stars! Comfort Rated: 5 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Jan 22, 2015 Anonymous

    I love my new Nike FS Lit Run 2. They are so light. I have almost always worn Nike athletic shoes. I ordered my regular size. It does seem a smidge smaller then the Free Runs I had previously, but not so much I needed to size up. Something to keep in mind if you like thick socks.
