Walking back into the store with them on was like having an epiphany on comfort. A coworker asked how them felt and my first response was “They are like wearing kittens”. My toes were free to wiggle and my whole foot was flat and firmly pressed into the floor. I felt grounded. At the end of the day my feet felt great from running around on the hard concrete for 8 hours. I was slightly worried the minimal padding would be a mistake there. I was wrong they are still comfortable now months later. The leather is very supple an moves and bends well in the active environment I work. To me the shoe feels cooler than others. Usually after wearing to longer than 8 hours I notice some sweatiness.
