I tend to spend more time shopping for footwear than most regular products. I look for comfort, fit, how my foot lands and rolls off and the price. I found the Cedar shoe to be very lightweight and really comfortable but it's how my foot rolls that bothers me. The reason behind the twisting of the foot as I step is due to a flat tread on the heel and boat hull shaped tread in the front. Besides this poor design the shoe is amazing for walking in the city or slack lining in the park.
