They've arrived and I'm wearing them now! When I got home and found the box on my porch, I was excited, but my daughter just returned to the states after 7 months in St. Thomas and was here to get her car. It wouldn't start and we had to deal with a tow truck, etc. so I haven't had much chance to try them out. My first impression, though, is relief that they aren't all weird and hard to balance. They have a negative heel so you can rock back and forth when standing around... and I do a LOT of standing in my classroom. The cushioning is heaven. I'll report back at lunchtime and tell you how it's going.
