I have had a number of Sam Edelman shoes so I was really excited about these. However, these shoes are unwearable. They're difficult to walk in, my feet and calves feel very tense after walking for a bit. You need to keep your toes crunched to keep the shoes on. The foam sole heats up very quickly and your feet sweat a lot. Plus, I get so many blisters. The shoes rip through any plaster I try to put on. I tried wearing them in with socks but nothing helps. I can't return them at this point but I can't imagine myself wearing them again.
