thank you for your kind words. i have found out one thing about those adissage since then. they are not for activities. i have gotten them wet so the rubber is sticky and then done work around the yard of played in them and the little rubbers have broken over or broken off in places, mostly under the ball of my foot. i dont think it is the shoes, i think i have been a bit abussive. they still work great. i dont even feel them now. if i could only get the gravel in the driveway to feel that way!!!
