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!
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.
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!
