I don't see anything wrong with the owner making a profit. Why not incorporate aid into his sales platform? There are "knockoffs" available at skechers for more money and as far as I know they aren't making any charitable donations. ( but I could be wrong) . The point is though, if I want to wear something trendy, it may as well be helping someone else out. And it's not like they are expensive.
And they are comfortable, but I have pronated feet so the arch support really helps me. I absolutely cannot wear flats.
I always have this problem of what to wear traveling because you want to look nice but want something confortable. I usually end up sacrificing looks for comfort and wear my Arizona birks.
Anyways, enough of me talking. Just my 2 cents!

these have grown on me more and more....
with the loafer trend and the espadrille trend and the boat shoe trend...
this just seems like the perfect balance of all of those ...

it seems like a very versatile shoe...

even straight guys can wear them without coming across as very effete...

i like them best in preppy/nautical colours-
navy, red and pale yellow...
