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 work 12-13 hour shifts in the ER. Good shoes are a must and hard to find. Based on my fellow reviewers, I ordered a pair of size 14, normal width.

    The shoes are well-made with no loose stitching or welds. The sole is flatter for continued walking and has a non-skid design. The non-skid feature works as I accidentally tested it on some bodily fluids that I walked into. But do they squeak when wet! I sounded like a wounded duck for 5 minutes until the squeaking stopped.

    The laces loosen up constantly. This is the 3rd pair of shoes that I've had to replace the laces immediately. I shouldn't have to make a trip to the store to pick-up some non-slip laces. Minus 1 star.

    When laced up correctly, these shoes are very comfortable. My feet usually get sore during my 10th hour at work but felt better with these shoes. The sole/heel is very thick and provides excellent cushioning. The wife commented that I was also a bit taller.

    I've worn these for 7 shifts...84 hours of continuous abuse from walking, running, bodily fluids, and crappy laces. My feet feel better and I've had no issues with the construction.

    4/5 stars because of the laces, otherwise these are an excellent work shoe.

    This is by far the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned and that's it period! It did take a day or so to get used to the way they feel the first time I bought them, which was over a year ago. That's right, I just ordered my third pair of these. It did take some getting used to the first time I ever put a pair of these on; it was like stepping off of the hard floor and onto a mattress. I like the way the feel and wear and the slip resistance is a plus in my line of work. I drive a yard truck for a distribution center and I am in and out, up and down and walking around trailers all day long. Since I have been wearing these my back doesn't seem to hurt so much at the end of the day any more. The slip resistant soles are a plus because living in Florida we are prone to many rainy days and metal truck steps do tend to get a little slippery.

    I will give these shoes five stars all day long, I don't care what that ambulance chasing lawyer on the TV says! I have no problem walking in a shoe that has the same sole width as any other shoe. The only difference with these is that they are quite "spongey", which accounts for having to get used to the way they feel the first time they are put on. I have had no problems whatsoever with the way they walk or feel or anything else. I am watching the news and if they appear to be coming obsolete because of some lawyer I will buy as many pair as I can before they disappear from the shelves! I simply love the way they fit and feel!

    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?
