Eureka---Well You Don't Smell So Hot Yourself

Pros: Exceptionally Well Built, Amazing Support, Value For Your Hard Earned Dollars

Cons: Even these reasonably priced Eurekas ain't cheap, but as I said, they're not cheaply built.

The Bottom Line: I am strongly biased towards Rockports as a choice for your feet. They have been my numero uno for a long time.

   These are another pair of those amazing Rockport shoes that are helping me get the pep back in my step, while recuperating from five bulging discs and a serious loss of muscle tissue. Let's just say--I'm one of those .."rare occasions..." that Astra Zeneca's  legal speed reader talks about at the end of those Crestor commercials. Fortunately for me, I've known about Rockport magic since the 1980's. Back then their well thought out heel cups, extra arch support, and cushioning at the balls of my feet helped me tackle those 12-14 hour days that come with full time work and school. Nowadays, they have come back to the forefront of the foot wear portion of my wardrobe, and they are helping me conquer long days, and a gimpy back.
     This particular model, The Eureka, is readily available in Chocolate Suede, Black, Brown, and Cream coloured leathers. It sports the same well constructed insoles of old, and well as the usual ultra comfortable rubber sole that wears and rides like a Michelin Touring Tire. Rockports aren't cheap, because they aren't cheaply built. None the less, these are some of the most reasonably priced shoes in the entire Rockport line. Considering what you really get for your money, these are a five star value. These, and a great set of well matched insoles (Powersteps), are what allow me to carry on a normal day and not have to live with the debilitating effects of Plantar Fasciitis, and a slowly recuperating back.

This review isn't too Lean because Rockports ROCK. It's definitely not too Mean, because they are worth every penny.
