These trainers are roomy. I do wish they had more cushion in the soles. They are very stiff and do need time to break in for comfort. I can not walk with these all the way laced up with the laces going around the very top of the ankle. If you wear them like a normal lower cut trainer, there's no issues. You will need thick socks. I may try an insole since it seems there would be room for it. Laces are very long and you will need to learn to fold them for the Velcro flap.
