These shoes are soooo comfortable...but they squeak. I thought about returning them but the extreme comfort outweighed the annoying squeak. The squeak may have been caused by not wearing stockings, or maybe this pair has a slight defect? I don't know. I wore them a second time to an outdoor dance and they were very comfy walking thru Chicago and doing the salsa on a stone surface. I couldn't hear the squeak outdoors. Would definitely recommend for comfort.
