Love these sneakers, great for summer travel. I walked all day in pure comfort! As an aside, I can't figure out what the manufacturer making items for Duck Dynasty has to do with anything; political comments have no place in a review for shoes, but I guess some individuals just can't help themselves. :)

I have been wearing a pair of black Spira's in this style for about 5 years and just now wearing out. I'm talking 5 years of standing on concrete floors all day. They are made of the best quality leather and I have problem feet and had a job at Sam's Club where I stood on my feet for 9 hours a day. These shoes saved my "job" because if I hadn't discovered these shoes I would have had to quit my job due to foot stress. I got all the other people in my department wearing these. They seemed a bit expensive at first and some of my friends hesitated, but after they saw and heard my "testimony" to the comfort of these shoes they were sold on them. I have been laid off for about 5 years now but have still continued to wear these shoes and now I am getting ready to purchase them in white so I can wear them out and about. I can't say enough good things about these shoes. I recently bought a pair of tennis shoes at a store and I was skimping that day due to something we all have "bills" so I went ahead and bought a pair of other brand shoes for $40, well you get what you pay for and I am in pain in these shoes. Spira is the only way to go if you want comfort. Forget the neon, pink, blue, chartreuse and all the other fancy athletic shoes. If you have the least bit of foot problems, or even if you don't, you will love the way these shoes can get you through a whole day with no pain.

Before buying these I was in a pair of Brooks Addiction 10's which are in the same price range. Wish I would have ordered another pair instead of these. Unboxing - they are very light weight, constructed to provide great air flow. My first impression after putting them on was "roomy." I got a size 10 wide. They fit true to size in length and seemingly in width, but not height...they are snug around my heel up my ankle but the rest of the shoe felt like I was swimming in it. After a little work I got the fit I was looking for by combining two slip in insoles. One insole is a heel to arch type the other was just a normal full size. But the two insoles raised my heel too much and was causing slipping so I chopped the heel off the full size right at where the heel starts. That gave me the snug second skin like fit I was looking for. So, in my opinion...this shoe does not fit in this price range, it's just not a "Brooks"or a "New Balance" type fit you'd expect from a shoe in this price range.

I have worn SPIRA size 5B for 4 years and always ordered 5B. These shoes have always helped my Plantar Facititis problem. Yet, I hate the idea these are considered size 6 B because these feel the same as 5B.

These shoes were comfortable and moderately supportive. However, I had mine for only about two months when the mesh part suddenly got a noticeable tear. I do not run (have difficulty walking). They are not very durable and they are expensive. I don't think they are worth the money.

These shoes are very comfortable. I stand on my feet all day as a gym special ed teacher. However, there is a big problem with them. When I started wearing them, I noticed the inside of the soles left dark, rust stains on the soles of my white or gray socks. I fixed the problem by buying thin rubber insoles and new socks, of course. The stains were permanent.

Looked REALLY cool and is cushioned well BUT look at the sole. The middle section is really thin meaning when you grab the heel and the toe of the shoe and twist it, the shoe twists easily, i.e. it lacks stability and will flex too much for anyone with fallen arches or anyone who gets achiness on the bottom of their feet - plantar fascitis (inflamed/irritated sole of the foot).

I bought this for zumba class based upon description that it is a dance shoe. It is not. It sticks to the floor and does not move or slide. I am keeping it because it is still a great walking/workout shoe, just not good for dance type movements.

I like these shoes. I have had Spira shoes for years. I liked these because of how light weight they are. This is my second pair. The first ones started to squeak after awhile and Zappos returned them and I am on my second pair and have worn them everyday since I got them and now they are starting to squeak too, so I have to give them a 3. If you don't mind the squeak these are great shoes. My last three pairs of Spira's were awesome. This style is the only one that has done this.

Best walking shoes I have ever had. The spring wave action cushions each step, my legs don't get tired and my hips no longer ache, I can walk further in these shoes, my feet do not sweat due to the perforated toe cap. Highly recommend them, well worth the extra cost.

Half size too large. There is a metal spring in the heel. They send a spring along with the shoes so you can see how it works. It's more springy when the weight distribution is not even (so, upon the heel strike). The look is total "mom shoes." Made overseas. This company makes some official "Duck Dynasty" shoes, if that's the kind of partnership that would bother you.

This shoe could not be cuter. This is the only running shoe I've ever been complimented on while running. However, even with custom insoles, these shoes made the arches of my feet ache. Even worse, the area inside the shoe behind the heel bone developed holes and now give me blisters. I can only wear the shoes for a quick trip to the store. As exercise shoes they are useless.

I ordered these for work after seeing them on TV and reading about them. I have a bad knee and back. I also walk for a living. So at 8 weeks old and only wearing them 50-60% of the time they are 80% warn out. One of the springs are making noise and I'm guessing within 2 weeks will be popping out the bottom, and if not the stitching in one spot will be giving me full air conditioning. Usually when I spend 150 on a pair of shoes I expect closer to 4 months from the. Not 2. But vary comfortable in general and works great with my orthotics.

Not as springy as I expected (not springy for me at all). Too stiff & too heavy for me. Also, could be wrong size, but not sure.

These are the best shoes that I have ever purchased. They are a little on the large size and I will order half a size smaller next time. They helped my ankle and knee pain and swelling at the toe joints.

This is the best running shoe I have ever worn. Such a secret treasure of a brand! The split sole doesn't give much if any arch support, but if you are an avid runner like I am and would prefer a lighter shoe with more heel and ball support, this is the shoe for you!

The shoe needs no break in time, it is comfortable, light and gives you a spring in your step. True to size. I have a wide foot and its space is great.

Fabulous shoes and impeccably made - love the stability of the coils, too! I wear an 11-W to accommodate lovely prescription orthotics. Sometimes you have to give up style to get the right fit. However, with these shoes, I didn't give up anything or trade-off! I have been able to wear these shoes without any break-in period for hours on end. No leg fatigue or back pain...just feel like I could keep on stepping out.

Great shoes! My husband and I were planning a two week long cruise/land tour in China. I wanted some supportive shoes so that I could enjoy my trip and not worry about my feet. These shoes were perfect! I walked for miles (on some very uneven surfaces - OSHA has never seen the steps on The Great Wall) and my feet and knees never bothered me once.

This would likely be a great shoe for most, but it did not work for me due to the fit of the shoe once my orthotics were inserted. They are light and comfortable, but don't provide enough arch support for me to go without orthotics. Also, they felt a half size smaller and the heel was squeaky (if that matters to you).

Nice shoes -- very well made and seemed comfortable. But for an over-pronator like me, they felt too built-up on the outside of the shoe. Not comfortable after a while walking around in the house.
