The Best, Most Comfortable Shoe EVER..

The Nike Cortez is best fitting and most comfortable shoe, I needed to return mine because my foot grew by half a size. Will reorder a half size larger soon. I would recommend everyone to own at least one pair of Nike's Cortez.

"I'm a doctor in the Cath Lab which requires me to stay on my feet for much of the day. I also have to wear 40 lbs of lead while standing which usually makes my feet hurt pretty bad by the end of the day. These shoes are GREAT at preventing sore feet at the end of the day."
