If you are thinking about them, trust me - get them. They are extremely comfortable. I have very high arches and have been struggling with shin splints. I've been wearing them around the house and after runs and no longer having pain. My only regret is not buying them sooner. I feel these are true to size. I was worried because I go up 1/2 size in my Hoka bondi 6. I wear a 9 and the 9 fit perfectly. These are available on whole sizes and a 10 would be too big.
