My feet are the literal worst - I've had problems with them since birth and the hits keep coming. I took a huge risk on these boots because 1) they are pricey, 2) there weren't any reviews written yet, and 3) 99% of shoes are painful for me within 1 minute of walking around. I honestly cannot believe how great these boots are! I wore them for several hours the first day with no pain. The second day I took a chance and wore them to work (I teach college) and my feet weren't in pain at any point - and it was my long, 13-hour day. Here are other things that may be helpful:
-I bought the metatarsal version expecting to put in my custom orthotics if they didn't feel good, but the footbed is not removable.
-They are roomy. Not too wide, but roomy vertically, above the top of your foot.
-My feet are wide at the toe box and narrow at the heel. My heel doesn't stay put in these, but I found that wearing them with thicker socks feels better just because it takes up more space.
-The weight of these is 1.4kg for the pair (ABEO - please put the weight of your shoes in the details!)
-The arch is not as supportive as I would have thought (I'm used to wearing Birkenstocks, fwiw) but it clearly didn't bother my feet, so I'm not upset about it.
-I have bunions, Hallux limitus, collapsing arches, bone spurs on top of my feet, and autoimmune inflammatory arthritis - which is currently attacking a toe on my left foot, but in spite of all that these boots, incredibly, don't cause me pain!
