Sorry, but not for the wide-footed

Why it’s worth adding to your rotation

  • Its heathered jersey and athletic mesh cover feel supple and soft. It’s close to wearing slippers on your feet.  
  • The outsole may not be as grippy and abrasion-resistant as the well-engineered rubber pods on the previous version, but its grooves offer super flexibility. 
  • Not entirely fitted for serious walking, but its memory foam unit offers a pillowy sensation when moving around.
