Zappos Rocks. My MBTs are here, and they are sooo comfy (I listened to the advice on Zappos and ordered up a half-size). I do need to learn to walk in them. I can already tell that I tend to dig in my toes like I'm always walking in sand even on a hard surface, and in these you are supposed to lift your big toe a bit when you take a step. But the arch support of that ugly rocker sole - holy crap, it's heavenly, like springing on marshmallows, with no firm spots rubbing anywhere, or ridges to break the sensation of sinking your feet into springy marshmallow fluff. It's like no impact walking, though I do have to pay attention to the needs of my left big toe for now, I can see that this will become second nature in no time. I can also see that these ugly shoes could become addictive!
