Cushioned shoes, or neutral cushioning shoes, are shoes designed for runners with normal to high arches who tend to underpronate. Cushioning shoes generally have a padded midsole with layers of extra cushioning in the heel and forefoot that provide better energy return to the body when compressed while helping absorb heel shock and encouraging a more natural foot motion.
Orthofeet 525 Perfect for swollen feet after surgery
June 11, 2013
Reviewer: P. OBrien from Rockford, IL
I purchased this shoe because of the extremely wide opening so my spouse could get them on his swollen feet. As the swelling decreased, the velco straps allowed us to adjust the fit so the shoes can still be worn. My spouse said the shoes are believably comfortable; they are attractive, too. Would definitely recommend them!

I do like the extra width at the toes. Wish it was a little more stylish. Velcro is noisy - but I guess that is all they can use. I am in real estate and sometimes have to remove my shoes when showing a home. Most of the time I can slip them off and on without the velcro.

Johnston & Murphy Gambrill Lace Up The Perfect Shoe!

I love the way this shoe looks and feels. They wear like iron and look great with business casual attire or a suit. Give these a few days to break in. I used to wear Ecco shoes. J&M are a much higher quality shoe, real leather and last much longer.

For decades I have been had a foot problem called "supination", which simply means that I walk on the outsides of my feet. Over a period of time, foot and knee problems can develop. By using special inserts along with the Orthofeet boots, my foot problem has greatly improved!! These boots are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. The thick cushioning material of the boot combined with the wide toe box make my feet and knees very happy. I will definitely order another pair when these wear out!!

Johnston & Murphy Harding Moc Slip-On Way too small

Reviewer: Tom from Ann Arbor, MI
Have been buying size 12M J&M shoes for years. For the first time, the 12M did not fit. In fact, these shoes are the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever worn. Unfortunately, I tried to break them in over two wearings at work and the shoes are not returnable now. So I am stuck with a pair of extremely uncomfortable shoes.
