I ordered the Go Walk Max-53601 to be used as my primary walking shoe during a 4 week European trip. Europe, where so many roads are made of cobblestone and all that implies, requires a shoe that is tough and yet comfortable.
Because of the material the uppers are made of, (mesh nylon - see photo) are made of, there was no break-in period necessary. They were very comfortable from Day 1.
Our first day in Europe (Rome) and it was cobblestone city, as it would be everyday, over the next 28 days. I wore my Skechers every day and never had an issue with tired sore feet. I am just amazed at how good they are. These shoes are ideal if you spend a lot of time on your feet. The bottoms, with their unique weave design, (see photo), is the major reason for these shoes to be able to absorb the punishment that cobblestones can inflict on a regular basis.
Well worth the costs and kept me from being miserable. A very good choice and i highly recommend them, hence the 5 star rating.
