These are by far the best steel toe work "boots" I've ever owned. I've worked in everything from lumber yards to hardwood flooring to contracting and now manufacturing. My current company provides me with one free pair of work boots a year. I always use to pick Timberlands because of their reputation and because I'm a guy and Timbs are "manly." Problem was I could wear them out in 3-6 months. They also always gave me back problems, which I always associated with the work I was doing. I can honestly say my back has never been better with these Skechers. They last a year, are light weight (more like a sneaker) and the steal toe does not rub against your toes or upper foot. You don't even realize you're wearing steal toes.

As mentioned before, I've worked in a number of fields, but been with the same company for the last five. Been wearing these the last three years now and would be highly disappointed if these "boots" stopped being provided.

P.S. I always get the black pair.

Bought these after reading other reviews. First I must say they are 'height boosters', so if you are a shorter guy and need and extra inch these definitely will do that , secondly they weigh about 5lbs each. Ok I may be exaggerating that a little, but not much. The steel toes extend inward almost two inches, that plus the extra weight from the increased foot pad depth, make this a heavy shoe, so you WILL get a workout every day. Now that's not all bad. They are solidly built with good sturdy construction and good quality laces. I put in my own sport insoles and that helps with the comfort level. Probably my biggest gripe is they are rigid enough to irritate the top part of my foot after a day in them, so I am glad to get them off at night.

I have purchased this same shoe as it wears out for the last 4 years. It fits and feels great. However I have noticed that the quality has been getting worse. The first pair I purchased lasted almost a year, but each since has worn out quicker. I am now looking for a replacement for the pair I purchased 4 months ago. I have wide feet and they always rip out on the side next to my large toe, long before the tread is gone.

Considering the price of the shoe, its not a bad shoe. The soul does make it great for my job (I work as a Grocery Clerk) so I'm running around a lot, pushing pallets of products around & needed a shoe that was safe if something fell & also would give me that extra traction to push/pull stuff around. These shoes work great for that. Don't expect them to last though. I have had them for about a month now & the vast amount of thread that holds them together has turned white. On the left shoe, the thread that holds the Skechers logo on the back of the shoe, has undone 50% of itself. Also the shoe is a little tight fight for my normal size, so I would probably recommend trying a 1/2 size larger then what you normally would wear. I'm interested to see just how long these shoes will last me...

First of all I love Sketchers. I have been buying Sketchers sneakers for the last 6 or so years. They all fit great and last a long time. One older pair I had finally sorta wore out (a hole on top of the sneaker on top of outer toe) but I cannot find myself to throw it out cause it is soooo comfortable. Any way fast track to today. My foot size used to be 9D so I ordered 9D on this new Work Sneaker and it was just a little too tight . Thank you Amazon for taking it back quickly and sending me the next size which was 10. It was a very easy process and cost me no additional money. I am, again, amazed at this shoe. Even though it has steel toes it is still very comfortable. Stitching looks excellent. Soles appear excellent too. I did not buy these shoes for work, rather, I call them my "paranoia shoes". lol. Reason being that I have practised martial arts all my life and the steel toes will someday come in handy (but hopefully I will never have to use them in that way). Again, I am very impressed with the quality and comfort and no break-in needed of these Sketchers work sneakers.

These shoes are not made as well as they were a year ago. The last ones looked as if they were made better, and of better material but like everything else made over seas, they are getting cheaper quality wise, but cost more in the store. Like 65.00 plus tax, when they use to be 59.99 plus tax, they were made bettter, this is why I gave three stars. QUALITY and CRAFTSMAN SHIP is not what is use to be. Of course you have it made from across the pond, well the quality goes down.

Was amazed at the promptness of the parcel arriving in New Zealand 12 days. The Sketchers Shoe soft stride when tried on fitted like a glove. The support and comfort truly amazed me , feet and ankles do not ache, and the calf muscle in the right leg is not cramping up. Will be purchasing more of these. As I have had both knees and hip replaced. These shoes are 5 star.

These are the second pair of Skechers Soft Stride that I have owned. My first pair were the black ones and I had no issues with them at all. They lasted a year which is fine because my company pays for a new pair each year. So expect to get a year out of them, at least with the black ones.

The pair I have now are the brown/mauve color and overall they are a good fit. However, there must be some design difference with these as the steel toe must be a bit more narrow because it rubs on the big toes. I use toe pads and these make the shoes wearable. The rub is noticeable when you first put the shoes on in the morning but after a while I don't even notice it anymore.

Still I now wish I'd stayed with the black shoes. It may just be me, but overall the browns feel a bit more rigid and are not as comfortable as the blacks. Even minus the steel toe issue, I would rate the blacks as a better overall shoe and recommend if you are going to purchase a pair of these, you go with the black ones. My old ones are beat up but I still wear them to work in my home shop. 5 stars on the black ones.

Can't beat them for the price.
Comfortable shoe for all day use.
Needed steel toe,non-slip shoes for work and am very pleased with these so far.
Size was correct and they fit just as well as my New Balance and Nike shoes.

Update: After almost 2 months of working in these shoes they have held up very well.
No problems with the steel toe area rubbing my feet.
They are a little heavy compared to regular leather shoes but that is to be expected with a steel toe.
Two months driving trucks and working loading docks and they still shoe no signs of wear.

These are my go to work shoes vs. work boots. Steel toe and non slip sole. Their pretty okay quality when it comes to every day work wear, they will serve you well. Life wise... A pair of these will last you a 52 work week schedule or longer depending on what your doing. I highly recommend getting some memory foam insoles with them though like the 2oz. Miracle or something similar, adding insoles make them fit like a glove, change them out every 3 months or so and you'll get a good service life out of them.
