I am addicted to Sketchers Go-wallk
on March 3, 2014
This is my third pair of this style Sketchers-go-walks and my fifth pair from the go-walk line. First I purchased black, then grey with red detail, and now Navy. I've also purchased the Sketchers go-walk line in booties and today purchased a slip on sneaker in light grey for an upcoming cruise (I wanted something that looked a bit "softer" on the foot, more vacation-like - for excursions - still conducive to lots of walking).
These are without a doubt the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I have been dealing with serious back problems for a few years now. I see a pain management physician regularly and get epidural injections to treat my severely herniated discs. When I put on these shoes for the first time it immediately eliminated the pain that would shoot up my leg and into my back with each step. Like walking on a cloud. And light as can be! I've told my doctor about them and said he should recommend them to all of his patients, He should sell them in his office!
I love the Navy color, they are so cute. The white stitching detail is perfect to pair with jeans - especially considering I'm a big fan of jeans with white stitching. In addition, this color doesn't really look like a sneaker, they feel like suede and seem more like a shoe. But whether it's a sneaker or a shoe you want the variety of the go-walk line is amazing! Tons of styles, tons of colors in tons of sizes.
The only con, if I had to find one, with the first two pairs of sneakers I purchased - the black and grey - the material on the top of the shoe has a loose weave (not visual to the naked eye). This probably is what contributes to their amazingly light weight. With all the snow we've had this winter, I have worn them out and felt that water can get through. I'm just careful where I step, I would never give these shoes up for this con. I have never been caught in a down poor in them, but generally, in a down poor, it doesn't matter what you're wearing.
I highly recommend this shoe to anyone, they are stylish and beyond just the comfort of everyday walking you can even wear them to the gym for light workouts (walking on treadmill, bike, elliptical). I just cannot say enough good things. My biggest problem is I'm running out of room to keep them all!
