I wish I could have given a rating of 4 1/2 stars. The only complaints I have about these shoes is the very short tongue and the small pull tab on the back of the shoes. Other than that, these shoes are GREAT! They are supremely comfortable and are surprisingly good looking. I was kind of worried they would look like bowling shoes in person; but they are like a streamlined hiking shoe in appearance. They were on sale, so I took a chance, buying two pairs. That gamble really paid off.
