Painful to wear

Praise or problems with comfort and wearability? 

PAINFUL. Since I'm on my feet all day at work, after 5 months, I started developing aching in my knees and horrible pain in my left ankle. I switched shoes and felt immediate improvement. The orthopedic doctor told me the damage was such I needed surgery ; 3 month recovery, 6 weeks in a cast.

Toning and Workout 

No difference

My Review 

NEVER EVER WEAR THESE SHOES!!! Not worth the pain or expense in damage. My wearing them resulted in surgery to repair a torn tendon which required a 3 month recovery and 6 weeks with a cast, not able to work.

Would you recommend this to a friend?
