I wanted to use this product to help me at the register since I stand all day, tried it on, walked around in it then the arch in my feet started hurting I would have brought another type of product if I had known that this product would be uncomfortable. After standing in them for a good while I could barely walk by the time I got back home my feet were hurting so badly. Nice product but just not for me. The product is comfortable and stylish but I just can not wear them. If I can't wear the product why can't I bring them back to the Skecher store and exchange them for a product that doesn't hurt my feet product cost too much, it's bad business if the customer is not satisfied with the product they purchased but your insisting that they customer has to keep the product even if it hurts their feet, that is not good customer service for your business to prosper your customer has to be happy with the product that they purchased if not they should be allowed to exchange the product for something that doesn't hurt their feet or their money refunded

    By far, the best shoes I have ever purchased. They are light and extremely comfortable. Do not compare these to the D'lites because they are completely different. The D'lites feel heavy after wearing the elites.

            Absolutely love these sneakers! I am a nurse and work long shifts on my feet. I have tried different brands and my feet were always sore after work, I have had these shoes for two years and they are still just as comfortable and supportive as the day I got them, I have not had to worry about sore feet anymore, these are truly miracle shoes! Honestly considering buying another pair now to use in the future whenever this pair finally needs to be replaced, just in case they stop making them at some point!

                These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I wear them every day, for every activity (i.e. walking, working, hiking, exercising, etc) I generally wear these shoes about twelve to fourteen hours a day so one pair usually lasts me about a year. I consider this to be exceptional durability.

                    While the exact same style is not made in girls' shoes, there are some black athletic shoes such as the Fab Phonics that look similar. I can also recommend the Equalizer 2.0 - Settle The Score for boys, which are a similar shoe that could be compatible.

                    A:

                    That sounds like a very good plan, both should be excellent for walking and you could dress up the plain black style of the Trend Setter. I could also recommend something in the GO STEP or Burst and Microburst collections - there are some dressier looks there that have lots of comfort, so you could get a shoe suitable for walking as well as going out to a restaurant or event.

                    I would recommend giving the D'Lites a try as a good substitute for the Synergy Elites. They are a little higher profile, but they have the Air Cooled Memory Foam insoles, which are very comfortable, and a good shock absorbing midsole and heel area.

                  I like these shoes, but I get shocked (bad, like sparks and lots of pain) getting out of the car and at work when I touch anything, more so than any shoes I have ever owned. I don't have that problem with the Just Relax shoes. Do you have relaxed fit boots and hiking shoes for women without this type of sole?

                    I'd advise trying the Skechers GOwalk Outdoors shoes for hiking, they have very good traction outsoles that should be less shocking as well.

                    The Synergy - Trend Setter is not waterproof as it comes. You can apply a leather-specific rain and stain product to the leather upper to make it water resistant.

                    The Synergy - Trend Setter has a good traction outsole, but they are not considered to be a shoe with a Slip Resistant outsole, which is a specific type of sole required by many workplaces. There are similar models available in the Work category that do have that type of outsole though.

                    A:

                    Both of these shoes are not meant to be machine washable, the Trend Setter has a leather upper, and the Totem Pole has a suede upper. I would advise using a leather and/or suede cleaning product on the upper for best results. However, if you have been seeing satisfactory results machine washing any leather or suede shoes, you may want to try that at least with the Synergy. I would not recommend machine washing the suede ones though.

                  • A:

                    Although I am not a diabetic, I have incredibly painful foot issues and these are the only shoes I can even wear that are not backless (like flip flops or clogs). I do a lot of manual labor at work (loading trucks, climbing truss, pushing 2000 lb boxes over carpet) and I don't have issues from my shoes. I tie them loosely and they are super comfortable. If you also tie them loose enough to slip on they should be good for you, as they are very cushioned and comfortable. These are not shoes you will need to worry about causing problems with your circulation, especially if you are wearing flat-seam or seamless socks. No problems, not even for a 20 hour day mostly standing on concrete.

                    The Elite line of shoes are all sporty lightweight shoes with full length Memory Foam insoles and the Synergy model outsole. They're a 'classic look' design shoe. The Memory Foam is not much different from the regular Skechers Memory Foam sport insole.
