I bought a pair at the Sketchers store at Prime Outlets across from WDW last Tuesday. I loved them so much I wore them the rest of the week and they were far more comfortable than the shoes I had brought with me!!

I bought these in black - wore them at Disney in December - most comfortable pair of shoes EVER! Seriously like walking on a cloud!

http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-117...hoes-women.jsp

Ordered the white/lime last week - arrived today - love them too!

They are expensive - but Kohl's often has 30% off codes that might help! If you have a Kohls nearby - just go in and try them on... I made up my mind to spend the $$ in less than a minute.

I walk tons. But I'm prone to plantar fasciitis so I like something with an arch and heel cushioning. This is for wearing to work. Will these work?

I have a pair that I got last fall. I wear them on my 3 mile walks with my dogs and wore them to WDW in Dec. They are very comfortable and I dare say as comfortable as my Crocs for WDW!

GREAT REVIEWS from everyone! YAY I am sold on all of your reviews! I am going to get a pair! Saw them on TV and then in the Sketcher's store and was wondering how they would be as a walker! YAY!

I was reading reviews and one person complained (all the other reviews were excellent) about there being no arch? I have diabetes and RA and was looking for a good walking shoe with support for Disney.

So girls, is the arch adequate in these shoes?

Sadly for me, no.

I tried them today and while the cushioning is great it just wasn't enough support for me.

But I can see why folks love them!

Great cushioning but no support. I tend to walk on the outside of my feet and roll my ankle and these don't help that at all. Also minimal arch support. I tend to wear mine around the house but for long distances I need my new balance shoes.

I have plantar fascitis and double heel spurs. Love them! They worked great for Disney. Going to go get another pair for my June trip.

Mine was bought a few yrs ago. But they killed my feet if I wore them very long. My pair was very flat and no arch support. No way I could wear them to Disney! I suggest you just try them both on and walk around the room a little before you buy them! They may work for your feet!
