I believe it is meant to be a competitor to the Rockport truwalk.

The Acclaim seems alright. Although the toe box looks a bit narrow.

Cute shoes.  But I was wondering, how can a (woman's) shoe "encourage natural gait, reduce fatigue and enhance walking efficiency" if it has a heel on it?  Just saying....   Huh

Heh. Another potential court case coming footwear's way?

Not sure whether I like these, but then Hushpuppies are known for their cushioned soles and their biggest market is with the older generation.

The thinnest soled shoes I owned prior to Vivobarefoots were some cheap (like £15) pair of unknown-name shoes I bought in Spain on holiday one year. I loved the things, they perhaps had a 8mm sole or more and just a thin upper, but they were so comfy it was annoying when they wore out. I would have bought some more!

Surely that has to be a joke!  That toe box is ridiculously narrow.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot and your left.
