    I didn't purchase the good brand but got some from Payless Shoes to try out. They are really good for walking on my mile walks each day. My feet have given me so much trouble but I have found these shoes to be so comfortable. The cushioning is great and the walking motion makes the walking so much easier. It did take me a couple of days to get used to. I really thank all of you for mentioning them.

    I have been wondering about those shoes. I have weak bones in my ankles so have to stick to my New Balance. I tried some one once and almost fell over. Probably my balance. It was so funny. I know they will work well for you. I see them on TV and people love them. Report later. LOL

    8-) The only thing I have noticed with these shoes is the ankle support is not as good as I like so I really watch how I walk. It may be because they were not the expensive ones. I have always been a New Balance person also and I still like their shoes but I like the cushion of these Rockers.

    I have a pair of the Sketcher's Shape-ups and I love them. I am on my feet all day long (teaching Kdg). They may not look real 'professional' but I can wear them all day in my classroom and my feet/legs/back are not tired at the end of the day. I enjoy wearing them when I go for walks, also (which is what I intended when I bought them).

    Yes, they look taller. It made the back of my thighs and hips hurt at first (a couple of days) when I started walking but they are ok now. Pam, with the Sketchers, do they have support in the ankle area?

    They are not 'ankle high', if that is what you are wondering...however, they are not low-cut shoes. I have weak ankles and I have not had any problems wearing them. If you get a chance, go to a dept store (I got mine at Penney's) and try a pair. I had to get a half size larger than what I normally wear. Try walking around the store area a little bit with them. They do take some getting used to, and I would be cautious when driving with them in the beginning...simply due to the thicker sole.

    Thanks Pam. No I know they aren't ankle ones just wondered if they had more support. I will try the department store as I do like them.

    I checked out the Sketchers at the mall. The price turned me off.

    Hmmm , interesting reading. I have seen the shoes and at one time heard they were bad for you. I could use a shoe that helped with the back and hips and walking for exercise!

    THank you for this posting. I've been wanting some of the Sketcher brand but the price is so prohibitive--that much would buy a ton of fabric at Marshall's Dry Goods. I buy Airwalker flip flops (the kind with the different color insoles) and have found them to be better than any other brand. I'll have to try these.
