They are by J Lo and they are divine. So nice and cushy and substantial. (And they're from Kohl's people! I have gotten the best shoes from Kohl's lately and I am not ashamed to say it!

The ball of your foot is being unnaturally forced to take most of your weight anyway and nothing is comfortable about all your weight standing on a 1/4" of leather with no padding. So I'm singing the praises of these.
