there is one major drawback though.
On wet or shiny surfaces they are rediculously and dangerously slippery.
The plastic the soles are made from is too hard and although they look like they should have good grip. They have none.
When I say no grip I really mean it.
I was at the pub the other day and they had a tiled floor in one part of the pub. As soon as i stepped on to that my feet came out from under me and I fell over. I got up and it was like being on ice skates. Stepped off the tiles onto carpet, fine. back onto the tiles and again slipped and slid. The tiled floor was slightly damp as it had been raining and people had come in and walked on it. It had not been washed or anything else.
It was so slippery that I shouted for people to watch me walking around like Bambi on ice.
People even borrowed my shoes to have a go. That is how bad they are. The next day I slipped over on the wet concrete pathway outside my home.
If you aren't wearing these on dry carpet I wouldn't buy them. It wouldn't surprise me if someone sued Sketchers for broken bones.
Update: Now had these urbantreads for 3 months (not bought on Amazon). They are beginning to look tatty very quickly, mainly after use on a two week holiday. Also on the outside edge where the side of the sole meets the leather has come away leaving a hole. I've superglued it but I don't know whether it will hold. I am a big fan of Skechers and these are as comfortable as most Skechers I've owned. I just hope they aren't cost cutting and using cheaper materials on their latest products which would be a shame
After two months of wear, every weekend and some weekdays as well, they still feel very rigid. Also, from the day one, the soles had been very slippery. When I say slippery I don't just mean on granite floors etc, but they seemed to be really sensitive to different kind of floor surface, wet or dry. Until now, I am still being quite cautious when I walk on them. Touch wood I haven't fallen over yet but I've lost grip on more occasions than I can remember and they still catch me by surprise sometimes. I keep thinking that they will improve once the soles are more worn in but that hasn't happened yet. Perhaps mine was from a bad batch but I will probably try a different brand next time.
I didn't give it one star because they do look very smart but the primary function of shoes is for walking, and they don't do that very well.
Excellent, quality, hard wearing product, great price, overnight delivery. What more could you want?
My big issue with these is the total lack of grip from the shoes on even slightly wet surfaces, you foot goes from underneath you and it is like walking over ice. This is a major let down as you need to be confident in your footwear and that it won't make you look like and idiot or result in you hurting yourself. I was carrying my friend's child out to her car in his car seat and the top step was wet concrete and my foot gave way totally under me. It is a very serious product flaw and really drops the quality of the product in my mind.
In summary - nice shoe, reasonably comfortable, no grip.
