I wore these for 7 days straight while in Walt Disney World Florida. Each day I walked an average of 10 miles. A total of 117,118 steps and 50.65 miles. These shoes were phenomenal! I am not a small woman, by any means, and always get nervous when getting new shoes, especially when I know I am going to be on my feet for long periods of times.

There was no need to "break" these shoes in and they were lightweight, comfortable, and supportive enough for loooong days. I am thrilled with these shoes and will probably continue to purchase them as long as the hold up :)

I have bad feet which is why I use skechers only. These however have been the only ones that have not worked for me. The arch support is horrible. Made my feet hurt more. No support. But that's my feet. Any of the GoWalks have been fantastic and last. Great support on those. The black was the only one available in my size 7. It's un unlattering color I thought but I needed a tennis shoe for vacation. Some people might like it. I didn't. Some people with better aches probably would do better. Skechers are great shoes. I think I didn't do well is because my feet are flat but I have other problems as well.

                The Skechers GO FLEX Walk - Ability model has a good traction outsole, but it is not considered to be a Slip Resistant shoe for a workplace. I recommend taking a look at the women's Work shoes category, there are many different shoes available there that are Slip Resistant.

                The Skechers GO FLEX Walk - Ability shoes are not waterproof or water resistant as they come. You could apply a fabric protectant such as Scotchguard to the upper to make them water resistant.

                A:

                From what we hear from customers, the Skechers GO FLEX Walk shoes should be machine washable. We recommend washing on the gentle cycle cold, placing both shoes in a laundry bag or pillowcase, and air dry only.

                Currently the Skechers GO FLEX Walk shoes are not made in a Wide Fit width, but the similar Skechers GOwalk 3 shoes are made in wide widths in some models.

                The Skechers GO FLEX Walk are ideal for sockless wear, but I know many customers also wear low or no-show type socks with these as well. They should be equally comfortable either way.

                A:

                The Skechers GO FLEX Walk shoes are very comfortable and should have good traction, but they are not considered to be a 'Slip Resistant' outsole shoe if you are required to wear a shoe like that for a workplace. There are some similar slip on and lace up shoes available in the Skechers Work category that do have the required Slip Resistant outsoles.

                The Skechers GO FLEX Walk should be ideal for lower impact fitness activities that require traction and flexibility as well as walking. For higher impact fitness activities you may want to look at the Skechers GOfit 3 shoes or other similar Training shoes.

                The Skechers GO FLEX Walk shoe has a different type of design with a very minimal yet well cushioned sole that's wonderfully articulated for true freedom of movement. The Skechers GOwalk 3 shoes feature the GO Pillars on the outsole, which gives more shock absorption and support. Both shoes are very comfortable, lightweight and excellent for walking.

                No, I would not recommend using the Skechers GO FLEX Walk for running - it is optimized for walking as well as flexibility activities such as yoga, etc. For running I'd recommend looking at the different shoes in the Skechers GOrun collection.
