Shoe Review – Cobb Hill Parker
This shoe fits medium to wide with a roomier toebox than most casual shoes and a firm heel counter to not only support the foot, but also an insole with a deep heel cup. With its’ perforations in the shoe, the Parker is a combination between a casual shoe and a sandal making it perfect for most seasons. The stiffer shank means extra support for your foot and even weight distribution for standing and walking.
On it’s own, I would consider the Parker in the mild support category which would be perfect for a neutral or under-pronated foot. For more moderate to severe over-pronators, I would recommend taking advantage of the removable insole and adding more support to the shoe. The Parker’s removable insole means you can fit a custom orthotic or OTS insole into the footbed. I would recommend a dress casual style so it does not take up too much room in the shoe. Its’ Mary-Jane style adjustable Velcro strap on the upper means that your foot stays in the shoe safely and securely. This strap also means it can accommodate many different foot shapes and sizes comfortably.
Overall, the Cobb Hill Parker is a stylish and comfortable shoe for the office or out with friends that can be paired up or worn casually.
