My first pass at a lighter shoe was with the Sketcher GoRun line. I love them and will still walk in them but the sole is very thin (to keep the weight for runners down) and I found they are consistently 1/2 small. That is no problem as long as you know ahead of time and order slightly larger than what you normally wear. The toe box also narrows a bit.
I had seen the Sketcher GoWalk shoes but initially they only had very blah colors. I finally broke down and bought a pair and what a great surprise. I just finished a 4 miles walk and they exceeded my every expectation. Unlike the GoRun the insole of the GoWalk is not removable but it is made from what they refer to as a GoMat insole and it is wonderfully comfortable. The sole is about 20% thicker, the toe box is slightly wider, and the size is right on. All of these differences make this the perfect shoe for me.
The overall comfort is everything you could ask for. With the GoRun I feel every little pebble I step on. Since I am not jogging on a track or always on well paved streets this can lead to the occasional uncomfortable surprise when planting my foot without seeing that I might be stepping on some obstacle. The GoWalk has a slightly firmer but very resilient sole and heel counter that transfers good sensitivity to my feet without feeling like I am stepping on the occasional sharp boulder. The heel offers a lot of cushion on the heel strike but very good stability. The pattern of the nubs on the fore-sole almost offer a massage sensation as my foot rolls through my stride. Even with orthotics inserted the GoMat insole still offers a lot of stable cushioning for my feet. The upper part of the shoe is well ventilated. The shoes I got are black and it was a fairly warm and sunny day and my feet never felt overheated.
After wearing them all day at work and logging 4 miles today, I haven't found a single thing to not like about these shoes. If I had any comment for "improvement" it would be to offer a more expansive color line as is offered with the GoRuns. It might also be nice if the shoe tongue was stitched all the way up as the GoRuns are. I didn't have any problem with the tongue slipping down or around but I really like the more firmly fixed position of the GoRun tongue.
I really look forward to logging a lot of miles in the shoes and plan on immediately buying another pair just so I can rotate and not get tired of looking down at my feet in the same old pair. Even shoes need a rest every now and then.
Besides the wear on the sole, there are two other issues. I generally prefer a leather upper to prevent my big toe from wearing a hole in the top of the shoe. I thought these were holding up better, but after 6 weeks I started seeing threads coming through the mesh. The mesh hasn't worn, but the underlying layer inside the toe box has started wearing. I have attached a photo showing the soles after 430K steps and about 181 miles of wear over 6 weeks. Probably 80% of wear was from sidewalks and roads.
Second issue, is the inner comfort layer. The green insole is critical to the comfort of the shoe but is very sticky and tends to cause socks to role when putting the shoe on. When walking three miles, this can cause quite a bit of discomfort. I have had to learn a new way to put my shoes on, loosening the laces all the way to the bottom, pulling out with the tongue, squeezing the sole so it curves out in the middle and inserting my foot with upward pressure towards the tongue. All of this to avoid the bottom of my foot from rubbing against the insole and causing my socks to roll.
Once I get them on, there are no regrets. Seems silly, but as my friend said, these shoes have changed his life.
Also Amazon's return policy makes shoe shopping very very easy. Returns are super fast and no hassle.
