This is my second foray into athletic shoe purchases through Dillards.com. After reading the reviews on this shoe, I was convinced I was making the right purchase. I teach cardio dance, among other types of fitness classes, and the pounding we do would not work with these thin soled shoes. There was no support in the structure of the shoe. I will stick to making my athletic shoe purchases with an athletic store, and purchase my "cute" shoes from Dillards.
