This is my first pair of real kitchen shoes, and I love them. The two sets of shims allowed me to adjust the fit for my thick socks. They fit well--no slipping--without rubbing or blisters, and the gel sole is comfortable but not overly squishy. The traction is great: I feel confident taking large strides and turning quickly. I've noticed some minor squeaking on wooden floors, but nothing that anyone else would notice. My ankles still get tired after a long day, but I'm not surprised as my last pair of shoes were high tops and I have some pronation that I *think* the soles correct somewhat. The simple look and lower heel is also a plus for me. They're everything I wanted out of them!
