I started walking 4-7 miles 4 or 5 days a week a couple of years ago. I tried a couple of different shoes before I found this one. I always got blisters and extremely sore feet from the others, however, this pair feels like I'm walking on a pillow! I do double-sock and now have no problem with blisters and basically just tired feet from the walk. I'm on my 3rd pair because pair one wore out and pair two is close! I have only ordered shoes one other time in my life as I am so hard to fit. This is the only shoe I would dare do that with.

I thought the memory foam would be wonderful and it did feel good when I tried them on. However, when I brought them home, I quickly started feeling that the unremovable foam insert pushes my toes too far forward so that my foot feels tight and "trapped" in place. I normally wear a size 8 and these are 8 and a half, but because of this, they feel too small. They are not at all comfortable--a real disappointment, because again, I thought the memory foam would be great.

    Comments about Flex Appeal - Obvious Choice:

    I love the Skechers Obvious Choice shoe. I am on my third pair and going to go get my fourth pair. I use them for work and I work retail walking on concrete 7 hours a day 5 days a week and they are comfortable and durable. My coworker also loves them and wears hers to work also. They are great. I get a new pair about every four to five months. Love my skechers!

      I got these as a gift. I work at a hospital and I am on my feet for 8 hours. I was having foot, knee and back pain. I thought it was just a part of aging. These shoes make me feel like I am walking on air. I feel like a new person now. My pain is gone.

      I have a high arch and wish it had an arch support. Otherwise the shoe is perfect. I have even grown to like the hot pink paces.

            A:

            Currently it does not appear that this model is coming back into stock in the all black version, but there are several comparable shoes available in all black like the Flex Appeal - Epicenter or the Flex Appeal 2.0 - Break Free models.

            The Flex Appeal shoes have an off white sole with a pop of blue in this color. They aren't too bright to where they stand out.

            A:

            Currently I can recommend the Skechers GOrun shoes as being the most ideal for running any distances - you may want to look at the Skechers GOrun 4 or Skechers GOrun Ride 5 for a very good running shoe.

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            It does appear that more of the Obvious Choice in white/silver size 6.5 should be coming back into stock around mid February or so. I'd also recommend the Burst - First Glimpse shoe in white/silver, available now in a size 6.5.

        • Q:

          I ordered Skechers Flex Appeal - Simply Sweet, but the gel footbed does not extend to the edge of the shoe and my big toe fell into the side of the shoe making wear uncomfortable. Does the footbed extend to the edges of this shoe or is there a gap like the Simply Sweet?
          Asked on 7/31/2015 by Joy110

          1 answer

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            It is possible that the insole on the shoe you had previously was not seated properly inside the shoe - the Memory Foam insole should extend all the way into the toes and throughout the interior of the shoes.

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            Yes, the Flex Appeal should be safe to machine wash. I recommend washing on the gentle cycle, placing both shoes in a laundry bag or pillowcase, and air dry only.

            A:

            The Flex Appeal shoes have a Memory Foam insole that is fastened down, but should be able to be pulled out with a little added force.

            A:

            The Flex Appeal shoes are optimized for cross training, gym fitness and walking. They are not optimized for running long distances. For that I would recommend looking at the Skechers GOrun shoes.
