Skechers Softie Good Work Shoe

Reviewer: Cee Gee from Kansas City, MO.
I've only worn these Skechers twice so far. The insole felt hard at first but softened up after the first day. They are supportive and resonably comfortable. I don't care for how high they go on the top of your foot but eased this by loosening the top part of the lace and not tying it too tight.

Avia A325W Great shoe

Reviewer: Brenda from Lake Worth FL
The shoe has a great look and is very comfortable. You can feel the cushioning with each step. I normally order 8 W but decided to go with 8 1/2 M so it wouldn't appear too wide. The fit is perfect. My son has a pair of mens that has lasted nearly 2 years; he's a teenager and has put many miles on them so they are very durable. I would definitely recommend this shoe.

I am an orthopedic massage therapist, and I recommend these shoes to many in my practice. They help those that walk on the outside of their feet to learn how to walk more in the middle and stretch the insides of their legs. This is particularly healthy for runners, who usually have this problem. I work for a personal fitness trainer, who runs a studio, and I am trying to get her to try them. I sure hope she does, she won't be sorry!

I have been wearing these shoes for a couple of years now, and I mean for EVERYTHING! They are water shoes, and although I walk my dogs on the beach every morning, I wear them all the time. I was looking for a shoe that would allow my feet to walk naturally, thus aline my feet, legs and back in a natural way & I have to say these are exactly what I was looking for, but never found. They hold your top foot snugly and have a tough soul that protects your foot and also grips a surface so you do not slip. I am a physical therapist and use them when working...they hold me firm while working with patients. One of my MS patients now wears them too.....hard for him to walk & they keep him from slipping. I wear thin socks with them to prevent sweating and the first time I ordered then I thought they were too small as I first put them on...as you keep going & get your foot into them, they are just right, not too loose or too tight. Lovely. They look great with jeans....very trendy!!
