Here's a CRUCIAL Tip...
If you're a lady with a wide foot, go for the mens Lifestyle Walker shoe for the extra width.
On the other hand if you are a man with a very narrow foot, go for the womens Lifestyle Walker.
This shoe did come in either BLACK or WHITE and was best suited to those looking for a casual shoe to replace your old sneakers. This type is footwear appears to be a little softer under foot, but still displays good support. It was a reasonable walking shoe in this price bracket because of its extra cushioning properties.
