First, let me start off by saying I've always been a Nike man. These shoes replaced a 5 years old pair of Air Max that I LOVED... However, I recently started a new job in which I am standing 7-10 hours a day. The Air Max's began showing their age as my feet were KILLING me on longer work days... The place I'm working in just so happens to have a Skechers store in it that I've walked past on numerous occasions thinking, Skechers looks like they're coming up in the world. So, about a week ago, I decided to stop in just to see what they had... To my surprise, they had a few pair that got my attention. I tried on a different pair than these that were comfy but I've been spoiled by my broken-in Air Max for a while so they weren't THAT comfy... Then, the CSR asked me what I was looking for and I simply told her a comfy shoe that I can wear ALL day without pain. She handed me these and said another customer of hers recently bought 2 pairs because he loves them so much... Let me tell you... I put these shoes on and I was sold INSTANTLY! These are BY FAR the most comfortable shoes I'VE EVER OWNED. They literally took about a day to adjust to my feet and I've had ZERO pain since! I've worked out in these shoes(squats) and it's like walking around the gym in yoga mats! When I say these shoes are LIFE changing, I mean it!! Working 40+ hours a week with ZERO foot pain AND ZERO foot sweat is just amazing!! I WILL buy another pair when these wear out and I WILL be a returning customer! Skechers, You've gotta new customer and fan! THANK YOU for making quality shoes at an affordable price!!

I purchased this shoe because of the wide size option. While the shoe is stylish and extremely light, it doesn't appear to be very durable. After wearing the shoes once, there was visible wear on the sole. This leads me to believe that the foam injected soles will not last very long. I also needed to purchase the extra wide in a half size smaller than my normal size.

      Comments about Burst - Donlen:

      I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and bad knees. This particular pair of shoes helps my feet out very much at work. I stand all day at work. For some reason they also seem to give me more energy and strength while walking. This is my second pair for this shoe and are the most comfortable, softest, and coolest pair of shoes I've owned. I own plenty of SKECHERS shoes and these are by far my most favorite pair. I just hope this shoe never goes out of stock or production. I may end up buying extra pairs to have for the future.

            Yes, for men, the Extra Wide Fit is equivalent to a men's 4E width.

            A:

            The Burst shoes have an all knit fabric upper, so they should be okay to machine wash. I recommend washing on the gentle cycle cold, placing both shoes in a laundry bag or pillowcase, and air dry only.

            It looks like the next delivery of the wide fit version of the Burst - Donlen will be in early October or so. There are some similar black athletic sneakers currently available in a size 9.5 wide fit.

            A:

            I would recommend the Burst shoes, as well as the Flex Advantage 2.0 and the Skechers GOwalk 4 shoes for walking long distances. If you like a deck shoe look, you may like the On the GO Glide which combines a more comfortable design with a classic boat shoe look.

          Q:

          What is the difference between this shoe and the FLEX ADVANTAGE 2.0 - CRAVY?

          Thanks.
          Asked on 4/22/2017 by Paul from Los Angeles, CA

          1 answer

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            The main difference between the two styles is that the Cravy model has the Flex Advantage 2.0 midsole and outsole design, and the Donlen has the Burst midsole and outsole design. They're slightly different outsoles, both are sporty but I'd say the Flex Advantage is a bit more suitable for training and fitness activities, and the Burst sole is thicker and more suited for walking and casual comfort wear. The Donlen model is also slightly different in the laces and tongue - it has more of that 'high apex' front design that comes up higher on the foot when you tie it up, and the Cravy model has more of a standard instep cut.

          Q:

          Hi - does all of your shoes (including the Burst Dolen) have the AEGIS Microbe Shield applied to them, or is that only certain shoes? I've seen it mentioned and on some of the tags on your shoes, but don't see much mention of it anymore on your website.

          I know you use bamboo on some/all of your GO shoes, which is supposed to do similar things.

          I don't want a shoe with AEGIS Microbe Shield, or any anti-bacterial component. Thanks for the help.
