Elsa is the benefit of a sneaker with all the comfort of a keen shoe. I love these sneakers. Due to my high arches I always seem to be tuned in to the discomfort of my feet; but with these sneakers I forget about them entirely. They are surprisingly light weight and I love the roomy toe box so even as my feet naturally swell by the end of the day, my toes don't get squished. If you plan on wearing them right away, I suggest with socks or whatever your preferred blister prevention method is since the canvas is quite stiff for the first couple of wears.
