Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go all day I have pronation issues and have tried over 20 brands/shoes to find a pair that I may wear all day without arch pain and tiredness. The Ariel 16 has met my needs and impressed beyond my expectations. The inside of the shoes feels so soft and after 12 hours plus on my feet there are no hot spots. It wraps my feet due to the streamline design so a slight pull on the shoe laces suffices the glove feel. My normal shoe size is a 7 but I wear an 8 in Brooks with proper toe room and fit. The colors are visually appealing and heel details were unexpectedly more attractive than the online picture. Had Brooks provided more color options I would have purchased more pairs. I am looking forward to the next generation already...perhaps a pull cord next time instead of shoe strings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shoe is too high Bought this shoe 3 weeks ago. It offers a lot of cushion and support but it's a little too high for me. It goes past my ankles and makes it uncomfortable.
