"Very comfortable and good looking shoe. I'm a 60 year old guy and never get compliments. The first day I wore this shoe, 3 people made positive comments on the shoe and its colors....For walking and basic gym wear it is perfect...........I don't think I will use the shoe for jogging------I would consider the cushioning to be average......"
