Are you sure you bought the GOWALK's?

They have only been out since September 2012!

An article on the new release of the GOWALK on Skechers Blog. http://blog.skechers.com/category/product-info/

"In addition to Skechers GObionic, the Company recently introduced Skechers GOrun ride, which offers enhanced cushioning for elevated comfort and support and Skechers GOwalk, a comfortable walking shoe constructed with performance materials."

I have a pair of the ones that look kinda like Mary Janes and I just love them! I don't think they are the most attractive shoes ever but for me they are very comfortable for walking. The foot bed is very squishy but I would agree with others that they really don't have arch support at all. This isn't a problem for me because I spend most of my days barefoot or in flip flops. In fact, highly supportive shoes are terribly uncomfortable for me. I like that they are very light weight as well. They also dry quickly if they get wet and don't require socks (both of which are a plus for me).

Glad I found this thread...as luck would have it, when I googled Go Walks I found a TSV on QVC. I hope they are good for me too!

Just adding my voice to the many positive reviews.
For years I had problems with blisters at Disneyland, no matter what shoe or socks I tried. Last year I bought these and no blisters! No aching feet!

I just bought these two.

One pair (tans) last Saturday. LOVE THEM. GO WALK's.

Second pair (bright pink) bought Thursday are the Memory Foam one's.

You will NOT be disappointed.

I have them in black and was going to buy another pair of black ones. Maybe I'll move out of my comfort zone and get the purple.

Thank you, people of the DIS!

We have a Skechers outlet near-by and I bought 2 pair. I have been wearing the above (in beige, though). I too, suffer from bouts of plantar fasccitis (sp?) and these are great for me. These are washable!

I also bought a pair of GoRecovery slip-ons that look more like athletic shoes - also very comfy.

I plan to buy more for our trip to NY in July. They're fine for me to wear to work too.

Glad I can retire the ugly Crocs!
