I purchased these shoes for umpiring girls fastpitch softball games on the bases. Overall, these shoes are fantastic! They look awesome, look like you just shined them even if you didn't. One thing about these shoes is that they run a little bit snug. Normally I wear a 12 2E in all my New Balance sneakers. These ones are still a little tight. If you are normally a 2E, maybe look for the 4E size. I would absolutely recommend these to anybody looking to be comfortable while on the bases!
