The Primal Professionals are the best dress shoes I've ever worn! When I first put them on, I couldn't shake the feeling that I left the house in my slippers - that's how different and comfortable they feel! They've continued to be extremely comfortable. Standing at work has now gone from annoying to comfortable. I felt the difference in my calves, Achilles, and back right away. The shoes look good, and I appreciate the attention to the little details like putting grommets in all of the shoelace holes. (I've destroyed other dress shoes by ripping through the holes.) There's no way I'm going back to any other kind of dress shoe after putting these on!
