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!
