As I was preparing to go on an Alaskan cruise, I was looking for black shoes to wear that weren't too "casual," that I could wear on our on-shore excursions as well as on-board. I typically wear a AA or AAA width shoe, so needless to say, I could not find what i wanted. While I was shopping for a hiking boot, I saw the Cloud and tried it on. I have not taken it off. I wear my shoes everywhere. I did not know the brand of the shoe; yet when I was asked abut the shoe, I would tell people asking, "They are like walking on clouds." Imagine my surprise when I found out they were called the Cloud!!!Love love the shoe! Planning on another purchase soon because I have worn them out!
