These are nice light weight shoes. I've been wearing sketcher skid resistant shoes for 3 years. This was a different shoe style than I normally get. I like the light weight of them. But they were contstructed poorly as the tread fell off my right shoe after only one day. Also not great for winter, but excellent for a 15 hour shift in a restaurant. Just buy some dr scholls to put it and your food to go!

        Great work shoe!! I am 68 and love comfort. I have had three pairs in the last 8 years and they are the only onea I'll buy for work. I do use added arch support, but just a minor detail. Allows your feet to expand after standing long hours

            they were okay, especially for the price, but for my brother, who is an executive chef, and on his feet all day. Support was lacking, and after trying them on, he didn't feel they would work for him. The product has been returned

                These particular shoes come in whole sizes only. I'd recommend going with the 12 in these.

                The lowest size the Oswald - Balder is currently made in is a size 7. They aren't made in a size 6.

                A:

                Currently Skechers does not sell replacement insoles on their own, but just about any comfort insole would go well into the Oswald clog. I'd say a Gel insole would be good for these.

              How can expedite a brake-in on these oswalds? They are tight on width and top of foot even though i bought a size big. Can they be heated and then worn to mold them to my feet (I.E. hot water)?

                A:

                I haven't heard from any customers who have tried stretching their Oswald clog using hot water or a hair dryer, though in theory that could work. You may also want to try stretching them with shoe inserts or wearing them with thick socks.

                No, the Balder clog does not have a steel toe or safety toe. They do have a slip resistant outsole.

                A:

                The Balder is super lightweight as it is mostly made out of plastic foam. I'd say about 6 to 9 oz. per clog depending on size. Their light weight is definitely one of the best things about this shoe.
