I walk on both pavement and sidewalk so it's almost like I'm walking in socks. There is NO shock absorption at all. However, after visiting the local store for cushioned inserts this problem was solved. Don't get me wrong, the shoes are attractive and okay for walking around without a fast pace. But if you want a shoe that feels like walking on marshmallow's then this is NOT your shoe.
Instead of returning these like I should I'm just going to keep them as "knock around" shoes and I'll go back to another brand. There's always a risk of buying items without trying them on so in this case the brand name Skecher's didn't hold their reputation.
What a shame.
Overall, these are very nice shoes. I am giving them 4 stars, but I could almost give them 5 stars and certainly would consider giving them 4 1/2 stars if I could.
These are not soft, cushy shoes, but they are well-made, even rugged, and support my feet. They are overall comfortable.
My only real problem with these shoes is that I ordered the size I always wear and have worn for years, but yet these are slightly long, possibly slightly wider than normal too. As a result, if I just wear them around the house, I don't notice any problem. However, if I go on a walk in our neighborhood that has slight hills, I notice my feet moving a bit in the shoes and that movement creates friction that makes my feet hotter as well as irritating them a bit.
On August 7, 2016, I purchased these shoes again in a different color and 1/2 a size smaller. This new set seems to just right. I haven't tested them as much going on walks in my neighborhood, but when I have, I do NOT have the same problem(s) that I have with my original pair.
Here is my Summary:
* Well-made, semi-rugged
* Good support, including arch support
* Run about a 1/2 size larger in my experience, maybe slightly wider than average as well
* Shoe strings are perhaps too long and longer than necessary, but that is nitpicking a bit
Construction....another story. I have had Sketchers many times before and like them, except for those flimsy little leather lace eyes... very weak point. My orthopedist made me a set of those horribly expensive foot molded inserts and pushed a pair of $100+ New Balance on me. Yes good shoes but like most , I walk a lot for work and am somewhat bow legged which causes outside heel to wear out before medial side. I thought if the shoe is going to wear to the point of useless in 6-7 months hard walking... find one that fits as well for less. These Sketchers fit the bill. Good fit, support, and reasonable priced. I'm going to order 2 more pair next pay day and rotate them to make them last longer
