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.

These are good shoes. I'm on my feet all day and I don't get as fatigued as I did with the clog type shoes. They are light weight and non slip which is very important. I've had them about a month now and they are holding up well.

I have purchased this style shoe several times. They also come in white. They run about a size small. I usually wear a size 8 but always have to order a 9. I have very flat feet & have to wear orthotics. The insole is removable & my orthotics fit nicely. I wear these shoes all day long & get great support. The only bad thing I can say about these shoes is the outer sole holds small pebbles which can mar up wood floors & I'm constantly having to dig out the pebbles.

I love these shoes. I was looking for a pair to replace my Easy Spirits Get Up And Go. I wanted a pair with a lot of cushion in the foot bed. Well, these don't have cushion, but they are comfortable, non-skid, and keep my feet relatively warm. When I stand all day my feet and legs DO NOT hurt or ache. Yippee. They are light in weight and I am so thrilled I bought them. I wear orthotics and they fit perfect. The toe box is tall enough too so my toes don't rub.

Brands I'd also recommend: Still looking for a good shoe with a thick sole. Gravity Defyers are good.

Felt tight when I first put them on but to be fair I have been wearing flip flops for months now. After wearing them a few hours for a couple days,my feet felt great! I am on cement floors for several hours at a time and I have picky feet that need soft shoes. A bit clunky but very cushioned and comfy. Great for service industry.

These are very comfortable shoes. I work in them for 8 hours a day and I don't worry at all about walking on wet floors. I didn't have to break them in at all. The fit was perfect.

I bought these after picking up a 2nd job that has me running around on my feet all day. They give me excellent support and my feet do not feel as tired at the end of the day. I even bought a 2nd pair for when the current pair die.

Ordered these in March. Worn 6 days a week and preferred over other shoes as far as comfort. Love them. Lasted over 6 months of 10 hour days, 6 days a week. Totally comfortable. On the weekends I prefer these in white instead of a regular tennis shoe. Super cushioned and great arch support.

I have been wearing these every day at work for almost 3 weeks now & they are very comfortable. I work 10 hour days & there was really no break in time, feel very stable. I have a wide foot, so I ordered 9 W and they were perfect, just had to loosen the laces on my right foot, but I have a problem foot. Zappos rocks!
