These sneakers were bought for my husband and the review are his words and answers to above questions.
"They are extremely comfortable and lightweight. I stand at work for 8-10 hrs a day and my feet tend to get tired and sore. These have helped tremendously since day two. I say day two because day one the arch on my feet were a bit overwhelmed and achy. Hence the reasoning for me buying arch support souls. Absolutely love them. Definitely see and feel the difference when wearing these and then going to my other sneakers. Sketchers have always had very high quality shoes and have always been happy with them. Will buy nothing but sketchers. (Ok- Nike air too- lol)"
As I mentioned- those are my husbands words exactly.

My opinion on the sneakers is, if they are comfy and help support my husbands' feet then they are worth the money spent. I, too own sketchers that I've bought at retail store near me, and absolutely love them. (Sketch-Air) I even got my mother in law a pair and she won't wear anything but those. (Except hers are black) They give the support needed for walkers, joggers and those standing all day. We both have no complaints regarding shoes or sneakers purchased. Accessories- like socks is another story. :(

I bought this pair for training, but I was shocked by how much they are uncomfortable for training or any kind of sport, the insole is totally unbend-able, and it was causing pain in the leg shin. However; it really looks great as a casual wear for walking, but that was not the purpose of my purchase. As I bought the pair ½ size larger due to my training cause my leg to get larger ½ size, I cannot wear them as casual as it will be half size too big. So this is not recommended for any sport activity at all

                Yes, the Skech-Air shoes feature an air cushioned midsole and Memory Foam insole for very good arch support.

                A:

                The Memory Foam insole should be able to be removed - it is lightly secured down, but can be pulled out carefully.

                A:

                This particular shoe color is defined as Navy/Black. The mesh upper is a combination of medium navy woven with black, so the effect is a darker navy blue. There is some black in the upper, but it blends nicely with the navy for an overall navy blue look. Should go nicely with jeans.

                For men there are currently 80 different shoes available on Skechers.com in the Wide Fit, which is a men's 2E/3E width, and there are 39 different shoes available in an Extra Wide Fit, which is a 4E/5E width. You may also want to look at shoes in the Relaxed Fit collection, which fit a wider foot even in their medium width, up to a men's E width.

              Q:

              Do these shoes have a curved sole, so a kind of rocking motion can take place? My ankle is fused and I look for shoes that have a curved sole. Your shoes did a number of years ago, do they now?

                This particular Skech-Air Varsity model does not have an especially curved outsole design, though there is a bit of a curve in the forefoot for comfort. You may be thinking of the Shape-ups shoes, which are currently sold on Skechers.com for men, the Shape-ups 2.0 walking shoes. Those have a rocker bottom design.
