Comfort right out of the box - I have purchased 3 pairs of these shoes and will continue to buy them for my work shoes. I am on my feet 12 hrs a night and these shoes provide continual comfort. There is no break-in period which is a real plus. My only slight complaint is that these fit wide and I have a very narrow foot.

Great shoe - These are sturdy, but also relatively light. Instead of a squeaky sneaker sound, they will clomp when you walk. The fit is good.

Brands I'd also recommend: new balance, propet

These are the second Skechers Work shoe that I've tried. The first pair were cuter, but velcroed shut and snapped the first time I wore them! These, however, have been perfect. Super comfortable, I have yet to come home after a long shift on my feet and have any aching. They, of course, aren't as stylish as I'd like, but the higher sole height is nice for those of us who like to wear pants that are probably too long. Overall, I highly recommend this work shoe and know I'll buy a new pair when the ones I have wear out.

I’m always looking for something comfy to wear since I work retail and are on my feet for at least seven hours straight. So far these are near the top. They’re really comfy and my feet don’t seem to ache nearly as bad as they used to at the end of the night. They’re not as non-skid/slip as they claim to be though. Also keep in mind, they’re Skechers so they have about an inch of sole to the bottoms which is probably why they seem to cushion so well so you’ll be taller in them (I’m tall enough, but I wanted to give these a shot). Pretty true to size as well, the 10s fit me fine.

These shoes say Extra Wide, but they are not. They hurt. They squeeze my feet and the balls of my feet hurt.

I bought these to wear to work. I needed to replace the great Skechers Sport that I had used for a few years, but no longer seem to be available. They look very similar but did not hold up. After wearing them less than a week, I noticed a tear along one of the top seams that runs around the shoe. Considering you will always tug on those seams when you tighten the laces, I would think this could be a problem for other people. I will say, once I broke them in they turned out to be comfortable.

Shoes looked cuter on the site. Felt fine while wearing the for the first month that I had them, but after that they had absolutely no support. Had fallen apart not even 10 months after buying. Not really worth buying unless you are desperate, in which case you are better off to get ones from a cheaper shoe source.

Avoid this shoe like the plague! Mine starting falling apart 4 months into wearing them. They used to make this style durable for hard restaurant work, lasting almost a year, but not anymore. I have contacted Skechers by email twice to complain about this shoe, but have yet to hear a response. I will be lucky to make it 6 months in this pair this time. They are pretty slip resistant, but the heels always felt loose.

I needed a stable black shoe to wear with black dress pants. I like this shoe because it's a comfortable sneaker that's just plain black. They're not my stylish shoes from long ago, but they look just fine, and they're comfortable.

Overall the Softie is a very comfortable shoe. Trust me, I am forever searching for the most comfortable shoes. I am on my feet 8 hours a day at work, so I need something with a lot of support. It took me a couple weeks to break them in before I could wear them all 8 hours - but I am now able to wear them all day without them hurting or without my feet aching afterwards. They offer a lot of support in all areas of my feet. They are a little clunky at first but that's just because they are so supportive. You can't go wrong with these if you are in the service industry!

I have really sensitive feet but I can wear these all day every day. I also like the Skechers d'lites but this is similar but a bit more durable. Very comfortable. Took about 2 days to get a bit less stiff, but overall great to wear as soon as I got them. I'd recommend these.

I buy only sketchers sneakers and Zappos is the only website that has the sneakers I love! I have flat feet and they sell the extra wide width without the memory foam which I also love! Very happy and would highly recommend Zappos to all my family and friends!

These Softie sneakers are very comfortable. They are slip resistant and true to size. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a nice comfortable walking shoe. I can walk long distance without pain. The price is great also.
