The term comfortable, as employed in the footwear industry, refers to footwear specially designed to provide adequate foot support or relief from discomfort when walking or running. The signature features of comfortable footwear are padded footbeds, broader toe boxes, contoured footbeds that follow the shape of the foot, shorter heel heights, flexible soles, greater arch support, polyurethane outer soles, and in some cases, rubber nubs on the soles to increase traction.
Earthies Positano DANGEROUS SHOES!

Reviewer: Sharon from Roseville, CA
I have had these shoes for awhile, but wore them for the first time today. Due to the design and construction, I almost fell several times. I had to be very careful when I was walking, so I would not roll my ankle. I had to wear them all day because I was at work. I had to stop at a store on the way home and had to walk very carefully, so I could get from and to my car without falling. Worse than that, I had a problem driving and placing my foot on the gas pedal. Wearing these shoes while driving, is also very dangerous. I do not recommend these shoes. Walking up and down stairs is also, unsafe. I cannot wear these shoes again.
Wears this shoe: Will not wear again!
