Women's Hostess Slip-On with safeTstep Technology
This is the first bad review Ive ever written about something and I created an account just to do so.
I had such high hopes for these shoes. When I tried them on in the store I immediately loved them, they were cute and I could feel the cushion in each step. But I think whats happening is that because of the cushion, my feet are sinking in the middle because after a 4 hour shift my feet are in the WORST PAIN. Pain that lasts for up to 5 hours after taking them off. the outer edges of my feet are starting to look rounded instead of the normal straight edge because they are flattening. Arch support doesnt even help. Ive never had something like this happen from any shoe before. Its just horrible horrible pain and a horrible horrible shoe. I will be doing what I can to get a full refund because these shoes should not even be sold ever. Cute yes, but I swear to you they will HURT. NOwhere near worth the few positives it has. Very disappointed.

Worst shoe I have ever purchase. I bartend and work banquets I am on my feet 8 to 18 hours a day and a co-woker recommended these. They kill my feet!!!! I even purchased a wide width to be safe and make sure I had enough room.
By the end of the day my toes and back are killing me! I would never recommend anyone in the restaurant industry to buy these shoes. I have been bartending for 30 years and purchase at lease 6 pairs of shoes a year and have never had shoes this bad. You get what you pay for!

Disappointed by these shoes
These shoes seemed like a good choice as my feet need a lot of support. The shoes fit really well in the store, but at the end of the first day I wore them the left shoe flew off my foot as I boarding a bus.
Embarassment was the least of my worries, as the cushiony insoles that seemed like a good idea at the store only made my feet hurt worst, as they don't seem to offer much support at all.
I tried them on another day and it was the same thing, I could barely walk a step without the shoe threatening to fall off....I'll try buying support inner soles, heel grips etc and see if that makes this shoe wearable, but it does seem like too much extra work (and money) for one pair of shoes.
In the mean time, these shoes are just taking up space....

DO NOT BUY
Listen, everyone goes on the reviews to review how the shoes are. I am not going to lie. I loved the way they looked when i got them. I was very excited to want to try them on and wear them. Day by Day i was more and more mad bc at the end of the day i wanted to throw these shoes across the room. they hurt alot. I do not want to make payless the bad guy here but if u work 8 hours on your feet these are not a buy. If you are going to a nice dinner, or one fancy business meeting then ok they are your deal. As for you all out there, if you out there have good feet cheap shoes are not the way to go.

I bought these shoes because I am in retail and am on my feet all day long. I read the reviews and decided to give these a try. I loved them at first, they fit perfect and were very comfortable. However, I do kneel down a few times at work to rework merchandise and other things, the "leather" has started peeling off, it looks like I put one shoe through a shredder, I work in a woman's clothing store, its not hard manual labor. I have only had the shoes since February. I highly doubt I would purchase these again. Unless they were made better on the outside.

Perfect work show!
I've been buying these shoes for over 2 years now. I work in retail and I'm on my feet constantly. They are lightweight, comfortable and have great arch support. Normally I wear a size 9 but in this shoe, I wear a size 8, so keep that in mind when purchasing. I would love if this shoe were actually made in leather.
