This shoe is not wonderful anymore!
I have worn Motion for many, many, many years. Never had a foot, leg or backache from those older shoes even after hours of walking. Have bought two more pair in the last two years and they are no longer comfortable. The leather is stiff, the shoe is now cut too high in the area below the ankle and after wearing for a few hours of shopping, my feet were "burning" and they were very tired and the shoes rubbed the area below my ankles. Very uncomfortable. I still have a couple of pair of the older models and when I wear them, I have no problems. Please start doing again what you use to do to make these shoes. Even if you doubled the price, I would still buy them. Don't sacrifice quality.

My Go-To Shoe for More than 25 Years!
My mom introduced me to Motions in the late 1980's. She wore them as her nursing shoes. I had a part-time job with lots of standing around involved and they saved the day. Since I wear a 10 1/2, I love the fact that these shoes are minimizers - typical tennis type shoes make my feet look like I might as well be wearing the boxes. They can also go from casual to dress since I always wear slacks.
And did I mention the 10 1/2 size? I am a true 10 1/2 - 10s are too tight on the toes and I walk out of 11s. For some reason, most manufacturers think the 10 to 11 jump shouldn't be a problem - so glad that ES is of a different opinion. I've had them in all colors but typically the black and the white are my fall-backs - the only pair I've ever returned was a navy that had the blue-gray shoelaces. Bring back the navy laces in the navy shoes and I'll be in heaven.

Great Everyday Shoe
I wear a large size (10w), so I want a low-profile shoe to minimize my feet as much as possible! This has been my standard everyday shoe for many years. Very comfortable, even when i take a walk of several miles. Well made, classic style. Itʻs nice that there is a good selection of colors in this shoe.

Nice shoe but does runs very narrow
I have a pair of Easy Spirit shoes similar to these and love them. So I was disappointed when I received these. Ordered wide width but couldn't get my foot into the shoe. They will be sent back.
