I work retail and I’m on my feet all day . I do have Plantar Fisciitis and hight arch also and need a wide width shoes . This shoes are the most comfortable shoes for my work all day . I’m glad to finally find something that work for me .
The “x-wide” Stride Core worked quite well for my particular foot problems. I tried the “wide” fit first, and it was a bit too tight. However, the “x-wide” provided a little more width and height in the toe box. The shoes are very comfortable, and I’ve been able to wear them most of the day. I was concerned that the heel might be too loose on the “x-wide,” but so far so good. Proper socks are important. I wear Maggie’s Organics merino wool socks which tend to stay up on the ankle even with the wider fit. Very good customer service from FitVille as well.
