I am a server who works 10 hour shifts on hard and slippery ceramic tile floors and these felt great the first time I put them on. They are a little clunkier than the running shoes I liked to wear, but I was tired of slipping and falling every day, so these are a totally acceptable compromise. No breaking in necessary. Super soft and comfy! The arch support isn't great for me, so I ordered the wide width so that I could put in the arch support inserts that I put in every work shoe. I am really happy with these.

I wear these Sketchers every waking moment. I use prescription orthotic inserts and no other shoe is as comfortable as these with my many foot problems. Plantar fasciitis, rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathy and tendonitis all make walking hard for me.

Brands I'd also recommend: SPENCO sandals work for a short time.

I'm on my feet a lot and needed a comfortable shoe so I wouldn't be hobbling by the end of the night. The Sketchers Work Softie has fit the bill so well that they're almost the only shoe I wear now. I appreciate the support they provide, though I added gel innersoles for a little added comfort. I also appreciate that the sole provides a little added height. The non-skid sole works well and I like the industrial look of the shoe. I highly recommend them.

Brands I'd also recommend: White Mountain, Rocket Dog

Love these shoes! I am on my feet at least 10 hours/day and they don't hurt at all. Felt true to size but I chose to buy a wide for a little extra room. This was my 4th pair and will continue to purchase them!

Brands I'd also recommend: Anywhere, Cherokee, Timberland PRO

I work as a server in a restaurant, and these shoes have protected me from wet floors, oily floors, and floors covered in glass shards. Highly recommended for someone who needs to be on their feet and moving all day.

I work 60 hours plus a week and 12 to 14 hours a day for the last ten years and these are the only shoes I buy for work. I stand on concrete restaurant floors without breaks and my feet never hurt. I do wear arch supports and they fit into these in a wide width. All my employees swear by them as well. I recently tried a different shoe at twice the price and had to go right back to these.

Not a pretty shoe, but who cares if your feet hurt? If you have foot or ankle pain, the padded bed gives solid support. I'm slowly recovering from an ankle sprain several months ago, and these are what I wear to do any real walking. A word of warning if you walk in sand or gravel, take them off before coming inside because those non slip soles really suck up (and then release) the dirt.

These shoes are very comfy and fit true to size. I wore them on a 2 mile urban hike right out of the box with no problems. Also, the slip-resistant feature is perfect for this season's rainy, slippery weather. Great shoes, definitely recommended.

My girlfriend buys these shoes for work. They fit well, are more comfortable and last longer than any other shoes. Whenever they wear out she goes back to Zappos and buys another. Great shoes!

Very comfortable shoe. I have plantar fasciitis and was having a hard time finding non slip shoes and good supporting shoes. I can be on my feet for 10 hours straight with no problems. My only issue was I had to return the shoes and get a wide. Other than that great shoe!

I had owned these before and needed a new pair after several years of daily use. They never wore out on the outside or the soles, but the insides were done after 5 years. I was excited to see I could buy these on Zappos without going to the store. I already knew my size and they came in a couple days!

I bought a pair and they fit perfectly. My feet never hurt. I am a cashier and that means a lot when you're on your feet for 8 hours. Best choice I ever made.

These are my fall work shoes! Year after year. I've tried others, but, none compare to my Skechers. They give firm support, without being too stiff. They have nice, chunky soles, so, they don't wear out quickly, and, look good with jeans. I bought some of the men's style for my husband, but, he liked mine better, so, now I buy him these too! You, honestly, can't tell! I just bought another pair yesterday! I hope Skechers never discontinues these, because, I love them!

Best customer experience ever. Twice Zappos accepted a return for shoes already worn that were either defective or didn't provide enough support. I'm very happy I found the right pair of shoes and will continue to be a Zappos shopper.

Unfortunately I have to return these because they ran a bit too large and the tongue is jamming me on the front of my ankle. The shoes came with removable inserts and an extra pair of laces. I don't like the eyelets that are made of material, they make adjusting the width of the laces more difficult. Otherwise the shoes are fairly sturdy, heavy and the material is relatively good.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance, Nike.

Love these shoes. I think this is my 3rd pair. I am a Deli Manager, on my feet for many hours each day, and I'm in my 50's. My feet never hurt and I never slip, even when there is a greasy spill in the kitchen. I have weird arches, and some shoes hit my arches in a painful way. These are relatively flat, so might not work for someone who needs a lot of arch support, but they are great for me. They are very cushiony and require no break-in time. I do notice that after about a year my feet start to hurt a little, and that is when I get a new pair. They are also easy to clean.

I purchased the Skechers Work Softies because I was suddenly facing a 5 day a week commute involving both a train and a bus each way, and also because I had worn out my Skecher Shape Ups. I love the supportiveness and also the slip resistant qualities of this shoe. The heels are a little loose compared to the front of the foot, because I have a wide foot front, but a narrow heel, the typical "European " shape foot. I would also love it if they were a little squishy/bouncier, to further supply the cushioning I need for my feet. Overall, I like them a lot and would recommend them to anyone who has a long work day with their shoes on. The first pair I ordered had a problem of the inner tongue creating a lump against my foot on the right side, but Zappos provided another pair in which that problem was not so pronounced.

I am on my third pair of these in three years, so one star off for durability, though perhaps it is just that I wear them out. That said, they are super comfortable, even when you are all your feet all day. And while they are not the most stylish thing ever, they look like sneakers, and are just generically fantastic.

For being called Softie they were not soft at all. The slip resistance seemed weak compared to other shoes. I went with New Balance. Also, they run small. Size up.
