I actually purchased these slippers for my mom when she visits and stays with us. We have all tile floors throughout the house. She has terrible feet. If she doesn't get good support during the day, they make her miserable. She usually wears sneakers, but she'd be so much more comfortable in slippers. I found these that specifically state "arch support". She likes them very much. She wears them all day long when she is here and I no longer hear her say that she "has to sit down". If mama is happy, everybody is happy! Highly recommend!
