I bought these shoes in the black leather option about a month ago. I have a physical job and I'm constantly on my feet, so these seemed to be an excellent way to optimise, (pardon the pun), the benefits of my demanding work.
What I didn't expect was the opulent comfort that these shoes offer. I have slightly dodgy knees and these Skechers take all the strain off my poor joints. They are a marvel! To coin a cliche, these shoes really do make you feel like you're walking on air, and knowing that you're toning up at the same time makes one feel somewhat virtuous! I've already noticed a difference in the way my clothes fit and generally feel much better in myself.
I'd recommend these shoes to anyone. I didn't even have to wear them in or acclimatise myself to them - they were great from day one.
