Skechers great for Arthritis

November 2, 2014

According to Carol Eustice, Arthritis & Joint Conditions Expert, she loves her Skechers.skechers2

“When I first took them out of the box, I was shocked at how lightweight they are — truly featherweight. If you have arthritis in your hips, knees, ankles, or feet, heavy or clunky shoes are cumbersome and painful. When I found them to be lightweight, I thought I was going to like the shoes, but I had no idea just how much I would like them.

The shoes have a wide, rounded toe box. It is extremely accommodating, even for those who have hammertoes or other foot deformities. The fabric (upper) is soft, as is the antimicrobial lining. The fabric seems to soothe the foot. The padded footbed is simply amazing. It has a generous amount of cushioning and provides arch support, too. The outsole is made of a material called Resalyte. There are what is called GO impulse sensors that, according to Skechers, “move together and independently as they provide sensory feedback to the brain to promote a more natural stride”. While I’m not sure of the science behind that claim, the outsole is flexible in a way that truly does seem to improve your stride.

I have seen other glowing customer reviews for Skechers Go Walk shoes online. One person described them “as comfortable as bedroom slippers”. Another said the shoes feel “like you are wearing nothing at all on your feet”. I can tell you that the first day I had them, I wore them for 9 hours straight. There was no break-in period needed. Every day since that I have worn my Skechers Go Walk shoes, the shoes encourage me to walk more. They are that comfortable. They actually make your feet feel better. They do not pinch or rub on any area of my foot. There is no soreness caused by the shoes, even after hours of wear.

I typically wear an 8 1/2 or 9 Medium, depending on the shoe. I went with a 9 when I placed my order and it worked out well. They also come in a wide width for those who need it. Skechers Go Walk shoes come in neutral colors and bright, lively colors. Bottom line  – I don’t remember the last time I had a pair of shoes that I loved. These are not to be missed! I went back and ordered more.”
