I'm an RN & bought these for work. Overall I like them. I bought some gel heel supports for them because my feet start hurting as the day goes on & I do have plantar fasciitis. I haven't tried those yet to see if they will help. Obviously because they're made of rubber they make my feet hot, but I bought them because they will be easy to clean. I normally wear an 8-8.5 so I bought the 9.
