Great question! Most people put on their Archies and find them instantly comfortable! However for some people, they may feel a little firm, however after a few wears the footbed will mold to the shape of your foot making them even more comfortable, and you will find it will soften. This doesn't take long at all :).
If they do feel a little firm we suggest giving them a little 'wear-in time'. Wearing your Archies for 20 minutes at a time for two weeks or so and they will feel super comfy!
