I am a teacher and I have plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. I have been searching for a comfortable shoe or sneaker for a long time. I have been very cautious because no matter what I try I still end up with pain by the end of the day. I gave into this shoe because of the reviews and I am not sorry. These shoes are by far the best that I have tried. I still get some pain in my right heel, but not at the level I'm used to. The support is decent enough, but I still put in the insert my doctor told me to buy.

Highly disappointing - I'm a line cook and I'm on my feet all day and for most of the week. After reading a lot of the reviews, I thought these would be a good shoe to wear to work but once I bought them and put them on they began to hurt my arches about 1 hour into wearing them for the first time. Not a comfortable shoe.

I was able to get almost 2 years out of these shoes! I work in a plywood mill and am on my feet 8 hours a day 5 days a week. These shoes were comfortable from the very first day of wearing. I had bought a second pair not too long after buying the first as I was afraid they wouldn't have them next time I needed them. I just broke out that pair and am going to buy my third for a back up for next time. Love the shoes...comfortable and durable.

Bought these as a gift for someone else working in a kitchen. So far so good, said they are completely comfortable, great for standing long hours and very slip resistant.

Always order these from Zappos. Ordering is easy and very efficient. Hard to find my size in stores and Zappos has had my size every time.

The Skechers Softie is the perfect work shoe for me. I work on concrete floors all day and it's nice to not have my feet hurt at the end of the day. And non-slip is a huge plus, I am crazy about them and Zappos. A relative told me she orders all of her shoes through Zappos and now I know why. They are the best. Fast, courteous, and they write funny stuff. You will not be disappointed.

I have worn these shoes for the last 6 years. They are by far the best non-slip shoe out there. Plenty of mid-foot cushion. The out sole is nice and thick. If you have trouble with your heel slipping the extra eyelet will take care of that. This is a great shoe.

These shoes are extremely comfortable. I am on my feet all day at work and at the end of the day my feet do not hurt. They are water and slip proof . I did add a insert because I like my shoes softer then these come.

Awesome shoes. I have always worn Skechers sneakers to work but now that I've tried these, I will wear no other. They are great shoes. No breaking in as with other work shoes. They were comfortable from day one.

Great work shoe - I work on my feet for 40 hours a week. And this is the tenth pair of Skechers Softies that I have bought. I put in different insoles for more comfort, but overall a great shoe if you’re in the service industry.

Not Satisfied - I have only had these shoes about a month and the top seam is coming unstitched, about a 2 inch long hole.

Perfect for standing or walking all day - I am a retail manger and most of my work days are 8, 10 or 12 hours standing around on concrete floors. These are by far the best sneaker I've ever owned.

Shoes are very comfortable. Did need to change insole for more arch support. If these came in slip-on style that would be great. Slip resistance for both oil and water is great.

A WOW FOR WORK SHOES!!! This is the best all around work shoe I have found so far. Finding black work shoes for ladies that are not hot or heavy is a trial. This shoe fits all requirements, light weight, not too hot, good for walking or driving.

Foot Power - A black sketcher work shoe is what I need for standing on concrete 10 hours/4 days a week. I had some feet problems with other shoes, but thanks to the sketchers my feet are cushioned, flexible, and all around nice looking. I finally am on to a shoe that benefits me, and probably will also be my next working shoe.

Brands I'd also recommend: I am not familiar with any other work shoe.

These shoes feel great on my wide feet. I use orthotics, so I cannot comment on the given arch support. But it's a very comfortable work shoe and non-slip. I work long days in the kitchen and they hang tough with me!!

Comfortable work shoes - I stand on my feet at work for 8 plus hours a day. I have over the years developed some feet problems. These are the only shoes that I can have on all day and still function my duties. I am on my 6th pair as I love them that well. No need to try any others.

Great for all day comfort - I switched from Redwing workboots that were killing my feet. It took about two shifts before I could give an unqualified "I LOVE these shoes!" No more sore or burning feet. I give them a standing (8 to 10 hours a day) ovation! I wish they came in 1/2 sizes, but made due by going up a size.

Skechers work - I bought these a year ago. I work in restaurant business. They are so comfortable, for all day wear. My feet don’t hurt like most of my co-workers. Also, I run around in the kitchen where there is grease and never have fallen. I love these shoes. I will be buying another pair when these give out. i love these shoes will be buying another pair when these give out

Skechers Work Softie - The original pair have been wonderful! I'm on my feet for at least 8 hours or longer and on cement. No breaking in; very comfortable AFTER I put "pillow-cushion" insoles in them. The bottom of my feet did not ache. I'm sorry these are no longer being continued. :(

Rugged but Light! I work at a grocery store on weekends and I stand/walking on cement plus the paved parking lot anywhere from 4 - 9 hours at a stretch. Not once has these work shoes given me any grief. I do find the very bottom of my feet does feel a tad tired because they are hard but with a cushioned insole, it made the shoe a bit more comfortable thus the bottoms of my feet weren't quite so tired.
