More or less cushioning depends on how you walk, it interacts with your stride and pace. As a parallel to running shoes, when running fast or sprinting, firmer shoes feel better & optimize output, whereas softer soles are superior for longer distances, marathons & recovery runs. 

Some people don’t walk much, others do – and many wish they could walk more if it wasn’t for hard dress shoes.  Some jobs require sitting at a desk & others call for lots of standing up right which is tiring – and infinitely more tiring in hard dress shoes. 

We have shoes that fit all types of lifestyles, endeavors and passions – but one thing is for certain:  We DO NOT DO HARD soles!
