Just got these yesterday and I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I am. I wear custom orthopedic shoes but wanted something to wear when I dress up... looked for years, found nothing until now. Thank you Adelante, and Selvin, my skilled craftsman. Getting ready to pick out my next pair!

- James B.

Unbelievable service from Adelante throughout the process. The shoes are incredibly comfortable out of the box and have just gotten more comfortable through two months of almost daily wear. Looking forward to getting another pair soon!
