would highly recommend
Been wearing about 2 weeks now
The order form says order 1/2 size larger than usual, so I did. They were right. The 10-1/2 (I normally wear 10) felt comfortable right out of the box. I work at home on my feet all day and take regular breaks to walk the trails in the woods behind our house. I wanted shoes that would transition easily from the shop to the woods (Did not like having to change shoes each time). These work well for that. They are a little on the heavy side (like hiking boots) and feel kind of clunky around the house, but they feel perfect on the trails. They take a little getting used to because they are very different from regular shoes, but I am getting used to them and liking them more and more. Can't speak to the joint relief aspect as I am still recuping from meniscus-tear knee surgery 4 months ago, but these shoes may be helping. When wearing thin socks or compression hose, you can slip the yellow spacer insole that comes with them under the regular insole.
Almost, Gravity Defyer!
Got these hoping they would be good for working on the floor at a grocery store. I only wore them for 4 hours and discovered a flaw but I probably can't return them now because they're not perfectly clean in new condition. This problem happened before in the Iokia 2. When I walk, the shoe doesn't grip my heel and thus my heel tends to move up and down in the shoe, which over time wears out the inner lining as well as my socks. Also, the toe box on the half size larger shoe then I normally wear is BARELY large enough. Seriously stop trying to look cool and make pointy shoes. I've never had that problem with other work shoes like Kuru or Shoes for Crews. I wanna try the high top version of this shoe but sadly it's not in men's anymore. I'll have to try the Sierra boot instead and sell these on eBay :(
