I have to stand long hours and suffer with back, foot and joint pain so the right type of support is very important. Chaco sandals are perfect, and their shoes used to be just as great, now however they don't seem to have the same support in their shoes. (though these were definitely better than the previous pair I bought and couldn't wear much) It's a shame cuz the quality is great and long lasting. But if you need really good/high arch support I wouldn't recommend these particular shoes. Otherwise, I'd HIGHLY recommend these shoes. I did find the top part on the tongue a bit stiff and not well ventilated..but that could be t cuz of the newness of them and also because they are different from other pair of shoes I wear.
