    I work on concrete all day for minimum of 10 hours a day. My feet are very picky to new shoes. I've been a fan of Asics running shoes for a while now, and saw they offered walking shoes. Could not find them in any retail store anywhere, so I chanced ordering online. Ordered same size as runners. They fit perfectly. I would give these shoes 100 stars if they went that high. Very comfortable right out of the box, no "break in" period. Literally feels like walking on cushions for your feet. I am going to buy another pair to wear outside of work. If you work on your feet, highly recommend these shoes.

    I've purchased other expensive work shoes before but were never satisfied. None of the other brands could be worn for long periods of time without causing some amount of discomfort. I bought my first pair of Asics shoes about six months ago and just received my third pair from Amazon. All three pairs are incredibly comfortable! I have 4E feet and used to have a lot of trouble finding comfortable work / athletic shoes that were wide enough for my feet. The first pair was purchased for work and my mistake was that I purchased a lightweight running shoe. They were very comfortable but made of mesh. The mesh did not hold up under working conditions hence, I purchased another pair that did not have any mesh at all. I loved that pair sooo much that I decided to invest in another pair - upgraded. All three pairs of shoes were 4E but the third pair seemed more spacious and has helped me through ten hour shifts of continuous standing and walking at work with no problems at all. I HIGHLY recommend Asics shoes - I'm a very satisfied lifetime customer. Mahalo nui loa - Asics no ka'oi!

    Yes, to me, it's more than just a purchase, it's an investment.

    I'm 33 and have had some bad knee pain for a few years and tried many different things including seeing a doctor, a chiropractor, using Sketchers Shape-ups (which actually did help a little) and wearing a knee brace.

    I read good things about these shoes but couldn't find them anywhere, went to at least 10 different stores looking for them with no luck, so I ordered them on here. Yes there is a difference between their running shoes and their walking shoes, the fit will be the same but the actual design is different, so if you're concerned about the size just try another one of their gel shoes on and see what fits, but if your main use is walking, get these.

    Anyway, I take these shoes out for a day at Six Flags Over Texas...not a single pain.

    The next day, walked to work (about 2 miles each way) spent 7 hours almost nonstop on my feet...not a single pain.

    So far had these for about a week and only once did I have a slight pain, but this is going from having to put an ice pack on my leg every night.

    So yes, it's a great investment. My feet and knees feel so much better. If you are considering buying these, the answer is yes!

    asics Mens Gel- Foundation walking shoes are very comfortable. They releived some foot pain I was having within days. I work standing most of the day, so this means alot to me. The reasons for not giving 5 stars are, they are very hot,and do not breath nad they lack much style. But they are work shoes so who cares?

    I have very wide feet (4E). Asics makes some of their shoes in widths. This my 4th or 5th pair and as long as I order the 9-4E size they fit perfectly, right out of the box. They last a LONG time too. If you buy "running shoes", but are not really a runner (like me), I strongly recommend trying the actual walking shoes. They cost a bit less but are much better suited to walking than the running shoes I've always bought. This "blinding flash of the obvious" took me a long time to try, but I'll never go back to a running shoe. Great fit, construction and price.

    These shoes helps support my joints and back &
    has really good cushioning in the sole. Helps me a lot on my job and relieves me of some of the
    joint pain. Best pair I have ever gotten for work. Im surprised how light they are but still very sturdy.
    Even mentioned these to my coworker and he's going to invest in a pair.

    Size: 12.5 4E USColor: Black/Black/Silver Verified Purchase
    Okay, so I'm a big guy, weighing around 250. Just getting back on my feet from back surgery and I knew I needed some better shoes than normal in order to deal with the amount of walking I needed to do to help heal the fusions. I first bought the tr170's, which were great. So good in fact I searched for another pair but they were hard to find in 12.5 4E. And they were a little hard on me after awhile on my feet because they are cross trainers, not specifically designed for walking exercise. I was getting up to 3 miles per day and I could see I would need to really treat my feet nice going forward. My wife kept telling me to buy shoes designed for walking.

    So here I am wearing the Gel-foundation Walking shoes and the first day I wore them I went a mile further with not additional effort. I'm serious, they felt so good I I have kept on my daily walking plan. And I treat them as my special shoes for walking workouts only. The tr170's are my daily comfortable get around shoes. These Gel-walking shoes I relish as my special walking shoes. Buy them and you'll find out they support your in-step, cushion the heel and balls of your feet.
