The Skechers Men's Energy Downforce Running Shoe fits my foot perfectly and feels very well made.
I've always found Skechers to be a great value for durability, price and comfort.
Nice shoe, fits well, comfortable too!

    I'm standing on my feet for over 9 hours a day in these shoes, and I've got to say, they wear as good today as the very first time I wore them probably a couple of years ago. They are so comfortable that the only time I don't wear them is when I have to dress up!

    They are great with my uniform, great with jeans. Just about anywhere I have to go, they can take me! I think I had to replace the shoestrings, but other than that, they still look great, and feel better than barefoot. They have perfect support for my feet (and having had a heelspur, that's VERY important!) I'd have to say they are the best wearing pair of shoes I've ever owned, and considering what I've paid in the past for a pair of "comfortable" shoes, I could get 3 pairs of these for less and come out WAAAYY ahead.....lol.

    These shoes have been very poor quality. The synthetic material of the tip has broken prematurely, while the rest of the shoe is in good condition.

    These shoes are very comfortable. I had originally purchased a brown pair in a store and later bought a black pair on Amazon. The big difference is the pair from Amazon is incredibly poor in terms of quality. I have been waring them for about a month and they are falling apart and not wearable. What gives?

    I had a pair of these that I wore for 4 years. They were rugged, durable and very comfortable. I wore the tread right off of them and I wanted another pair of the exact same shoes.

    I was happy to find them at a reasonable price, but upon receiving my new shoes I noticed that the material was not the same quality as my old pair. The leather was thinner, the rubber was softer and even the thread and stitching wasn't as heavy. I have been wearing these shoes for less than 5 months. Although they still look brand new, some of the stitching is starting to unravel and holes are beginning to develop on the sides of the shoes where they flex at the balls of my feet. At this rate I doubt these shoes will last a whole year!

    If you don't mind spending $50 on a pair of shoes that will fall apart within a year, OR you only expect to wear them on occasion, then I would recommend them for comfort and style. But if you want a durable long lasting shoe that you intend to wear on a daily basis, try something else.

    UPDATE (5/3/14): I've just changed this from a neutral and optimistic 3 stars to a very disappointing 1 star! It's been barely a year and I'm ready to toss these shoes. I'm an accountant. I sit at a desk all day. In less than a year these shoes have both blown out on both sides at the balls of my feet. You can see my socks! The stitching is letting go all over the shoes. Normally I'd be on my 3rd pair of laces before my shoes looked this ratty, but oddly enough the laces are still in beautiful shape. Total FAIL!

    I have tried all the different brands of shoes out there and the Skecher Energy Downforce is the only shoe that will last for a 12 hour shift at my job without my arches killing me.I am on my 7th. or 8th. pair and will keep buying them till they are no longer available.

    These shoes are the bomb, I was stranded in Honolulu with my Sketchers on my feet and had to walk at least 5 miles to get to my destination. Man did those sneeks stand up to the pounding that I put them through. So soft and confee to walk in, man do I really like my shoes. These are the only gym/outdoor shoes I wiil ever wear on my feet.
    THX,
