as tempting as they appear to be, memory foam shoes don't work for me -- by ANY manufacturer. i like these skechers because of the bouncy soles. they limit impact as i walk, travel well as they are lightweight, accommodate my foot issues (high arch, bunions, etc) and reasonably priced. i just wish some shoes like these were offered in all white. and maybe in other fabrics. the nylon uppers in summer keep the feet warm. still, i wear them almost all year 'round because of comfort.

Who puts slippery FELT on the bottom soles of outdoor shoes?

I just returned these shoes because when I slipped them on, I quickly noticed how slippery they felt. I looked at the soles and to my utter surprise, there were bands of felt across the toe area, the center area and the heel. Just walking around my house testing them out, they felt slippery on carpet and on hardwood. Then, there's the idea of wearing them outside - where the felt will get dirty (now, I am tracking that around) and if I were to step in water, they are now wet (and I am tracking soggy felt around).
I just do not get it. I spoke to two Skechers support people and I asked if I had a defective pair because the soles do NOT depict darker bands of felt across the bottom (as shown in my pic). One woman tried to convince me that the picture on their site 'just didn't pick up the differences in color'. Right. And my cell phone does pick it up? Sorry, please don't insult me. There is no felt in their pic. I did want to understand if there is a purpose to it. I'm open to the possibility of a purpose, but there is none. She also told me it would probably wear away after some time.
Then, I called and got a guy - and he had the same reaction I had! Their own customer support person agreed - felt? on soles?
Normally, I wouldn't take this much time to comment, but the reaction of their initial customer support person was off.
So, I returned the shoes. I did like everything else about them. I emailed asking if there were any other styles without felt in this style. I'm awaiting a reply.
I would like these shoes and would have given it 5 stars if it were not for this.

Do you have questions about this shoe?
Get answers from SKECHERS customers or our in-house shoe expert.
Q:I love sketchers, but since i broke my foot i have to get wide shoes. Why don't all sketchers and all colors come in wide?
A:Skechers makes most of its best selling shoes in a Wide Fit option, and more are being added all the time. It may not be possible to make every shoe in a Wide, but there is a wider variety on Skechers.com than from most other shoe brands.
Q:Can the go walk joy get wet and is there a way to stretch the mesh because these fit well but are extremely difficult to get on. Also, can they get wet or be washed? Love the new colors!
A:The Skechers GOwalk Joy model has a mesh upper, so it should be able to get wet, and should be able to be stretched a little bit - either using a professional shoe stretcher or foot form is recommended. These should be able to be hand washed using mild soap, warm water and a soft cloth.
Q:How true to size is this style. I am a size 8 normally. IntheI past I needed a 8.5 in a Sketchers shoe. This year I had to return an 8.5 for an eight from you online and purchased an 8 at a local Costco and returned them for a 7.5. What size do you recommend I order in this style.
A:I also found they are big. I am a 9 or 9.5 and tried on the 9 and it fit. After wearing them a few times it stretched. Next time I will buy the 8.5.
A:Most customers find that the Skechers GOwalk Joy shoes fit true to size. I advise ordering the same size you wear in a similar Skechers walking type shoe or similar slip-on athletic shoe. Keep in mind these are ideally worn with thin walking-style socks.
Q:Is it possible to exchange tennis shoes ordered on this website to one of the local stores?
A:Yes, you may return or exchange items from Skechers.com at a local Skechers Retail store. I recommend printing your order confirmation or bringing the packing slip from the box with you for optimal results.
Q:One review said there is felt on the bottom of the shoe. Is that true??
A:Many shoes arrive with a very thin layer of fabric on the outsole when brand new. This layer of fabric is meant to wear off within a short time. If the fabric is an annoyance, it is easy to accelerate the wearing-off process by walking on gravel or small stones.
Q:Can anyone tell me how much difference in length between the 10 and 11? I am a true 10.5 and my toe is right at the end of the 10 but don't want an 11 to be too big.
A:It's usually about 1/4 inch or less - nearly always in women's shoes, a size 11 is the next size up from a size 10.5 - there are some size 10.5 shoes available on Skechers.com, but for most styles a size 11 should be a good fit if you wear a 10.5.
Q:Why don't any of the GOwalk shoes come in white?
A:Here are shoes that currently are available in white from the GOwalk collection: 15612 GOwalk Joy - Gratify, 15606 GOwalk Joy - Relish, 15613 GOwalk Joy - Vivify, 14723 GO Step Lite - Petal. Currently there are no smooth white GOwalk 4 shoes available, but the GOwalk Joy options should be very good for walking and casual comfort wear.
Q:Are the GoWalks comfortable without socks?
A:Yes, the GOwalk Joy and other GOwalk models should be comfortable to wear either with socks or without socks.
