Thank you for your feedback.
Fit and comfort are just as great as all their other shoes.
This is now my 4th pair as I have found that for walking long distances they can not be beat.
If any of that works it's because each shoe weighs a pound and half each.

    On the advice of his brother, my husband wanted to try these shoes for his gym workouts. Now he doesn't want to take them off! My husband has a spinal injury, and is in constant pain. He said these shoes really relieve the jarring pain of walking. A great product!

    I purchased Skechers Shape Ups to help with a recent knee injury. Because of the comfortableness I have since purchased two more pairs. These are the most comfortable shoes I've worn to date and, at 57 years old, I've worn a lot of shoes. They're a bit hard to adjust to at first but after an hour or two you truly feel as if you're walking on firm sand. I workout on a regular basis so I can't gauge the toning aspect but can tell you that my rock climbing has improved as has my balance. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who enjoys the feeling of comfort.

    I bought these shoes for waitressing on the recommendation of a retail worker who raved. When I first wore them, I was in heaven. My feet and back, which previously bothered me after six hour shifts, felt great. The shoes feel very cushioned. The non-slip sole was very good. I did notice that my ankles felt slightly unstable in the shoes, however, I knew that was one of the theories behind the "Shape Up" shoes, that the instability helps you engage your core muscles, sort of like walking on a balance ball.

    Unfortunately, after about 3 months, I developed rather excruciating heel pain, which progressed rather steadily over the next few weeks. I discovered I had acute retrocalcaneal bursitis, which (according to the doctor) develops in some who wear these shoes because of the instability and the unique walking motion.

    Sadly, I have had to stop wearing the sketchers. I made one change and to see if my problem resolved (because I didn't believe that it was the shoes!). After I changed work shoes again, my heel pain went away. I do agree that initially, they made my feet feel great over the work shift, but the heel pain eventually hobbled me. These just aren't for everyone. The irregular gait they create can really irritate certain feet!

    I have a pair of Skechers "walking" shoes and ordered the same size "working" shoes. When it arrived, I was surprised to find that it was about a full size smaller. The bad thing is, Amazon would not exchange it and I had to pay for the return shipping because this (size difference) is not their fault. I understand, but isn't this the manufacturer's fault and why do I have to pay the penalty?

    Last week was new shoe week in our house and I got a new pair of Sketchers Shape-ups. The new ones are black and they really look nice. I have been wearing Sketchers Shape-ups for several years now and I really like them. They are extremely comfortable as they feature a lot of cushion in the sole that reduces joint damage. I have a bad knee and back and these shoes just help reduce the impact from daily walking. Please look at my photo of the thickness of the sole.

    In addition the shoes feature a non-slip sole and they do help you increase your muscle tone and balance. They take some getting used to as the soles are not flat like traditional shoes. The curved surface of the sole and the thick cushioning make you constantly adjust your balance. You do it sub consciously and as a result you are using your core muscles, hip muscles and leg muscles while doing this. After a few weeks you will suddenly realize the difference and in my case my balance is greatly improved. As my muscles got stronger my back pain and knee pain was reduced. It feels like you are walking on a piece of thick foam padding.

    One issue that I did have is that on the inside of the tongue of the shoe is a square black label sown into the tongue for the size and model number. For whatever reason both of my feet broke out in a rash exactly where that tag was positioned over my foot and in the same shape as the tag. I never wear these shoes without thick sports socks so it caused this rash through the sock. I just cut out the label and then everything was fine.

    These shoes are very comfortable and rugged. My old pair still looks almost brand new after 18 months of use and wearing them every day. I love Sketchers Shape-up shoes and that is why I keep buying them! I think you will like them too.

    Most comfortable, awesome shoe I've had on my feet. I suffer from an arthritic conditon in my toes and this shoe immediately took the pressure off that area and instantly I had relief. The arch support is unusually perfect and takes just a little to get used to, but is so worth it.

    I am in nursing school and saw a lot of nurses wearing these, so I thought I would give them a try. I really love how comfortable they are! You can definitely feel different muscle work-outs while you wear them and you do have to walk kind of funny, which sucks. I noticed that when I tried to stand on my toes, to look up high or something, I can't really do it because of the way the shoe fits and works my muscle. I really like the extra cushion, however, to protect my foot from the hard, cement ground.

    I know a lot of people have been into the flatter shoes, thinking they are more natural: but here's the thing - walking on man-made concrete and tile floors is not natural! Barefoot-like shoes may work well on natural surfaces like grass and dirt, but not artificial flooring. I love the Shape-ups for the added cushion so my foot doesn't ache from being pounded onto the hard, artificial flooring all day. I have noticed that after about 6 weeks of wearing them, I feel that my feet are starting to hurt a little more - like they are wearing down (but then again, every shoe will wear out). Overall, these shoes are pretty good if you work on hard, flat flooring. I wouldn't wear them for much else - they seem to unstable for hiking or running or something.

    Oh yeah... and they are ugly :( I'm not really a fan of most Sketcher's designs, anyway - and these just get worse with the clonky ugly heel. For work, however, they feel much better on my feet than more attractive shoes I have worn.
