            Can this shoe be used for running? Or is it designed specifically for walking and/or other activities?

              A:

              The Empire shoe is best used for walking and fitness activities. I don't recommend these for running, for that I would recommend the Skechers GOrun models.

              Walking yes, but no, I would not wear them hiking. A more sturdy sole and a shoe or boot that laces up is best for hiking. This is a slip on shoe that is comfortable, soft, ultra light weight and pliable.

              A:

              I'd say this should be good for light hiking and trail walking, though it is not fully optimized for serious off-road hiking.

            Q:

            Are these shoes meant to be worn with or without socks?
            I got a half size larger and wear them with socks.
            However, if I want to wear them without socks, then they fit too large.

              I would recommend getting some of the "No Show" low ankle socks. They make some that are not too thick. I wear them with these types of Skechers and my feet are comfy, yet still cool all day!

              A:

              The Empire shoes should also have very good arch support, they have a Memory Foam insole for a custom-feel level of arch support. I'd say the Burst might be a little better than the Empire for lightweight comfort and support, though.

            Q:

            Hello, I keep hearing that you will discontinue the shoe I need for work which is the Trend Setter. How do these compare to them in comfort? Also, I have a high instep. Can I cut off the bungees and replace them with real laces? The bungees would be too painful for me to even try the shoe on. It's hard to find all black shoes with memory foam. Thanks!

              A:

              The Trend Setter is still in stock, and does not appear to be discontinued at this time. The Rock Around model should also be nicely comfortable like the Trend Setter, with a Memory Foam insole and a bit more of a roomy fit in the forefoot and toe area (and the instep too). You certainly could detach the bungee stretch laces and use practical laces instead. There are also many other lace-up all black shoes with Memory Foam - try selecting black under 'Color' and Memory Foam under 'Technology' to see the full selection.

              Currently Skechers does not ship directly to Indonesia, but according to our Store Locator, there is a Skechers Retail store near you at the Ciwalk II in Bandung. They may be able to help you find this shoe or something very much like it.

              The Rock Around model should be very good for Zumba and dance fitness - they have a nice flexible outsole and lots of arch support for workouts.

              A:

              Many Skechers shoes can be machine washed to clean them. Pretty much any shoes that do not contain suede or leather in the uppers should be able to be machine washed - I recommend washing on the gentle cycle, placing the shoes in a laundry bag or pillowcase, and air dry only.
