I've always had foot pain (am 73 years old) and have tried lots of shoes with arch supports including custom made arch supports. I started wearing sports walking shoes and they helped some. Then tried cowboy boots and they helped some as well. Then I noticed that the more tome I spend barefooted, thes less pain I have. To the point that I go barefooted as often as possible and have no pain! I started looks for shoes that are as close to going barefoot as possible. I also wanted shoes that give my toes plenty of room to spread out. I finally discovered the Sketchers GoWalk line. This pair of Elite Flex shoes is perfect for me! They allow my feet to compress naturally and the insole conforms to my foot and provides the cushioning I need for walking on concrete. They are stylish and can be worn anywhere. Anyone who finds that their feet do better when they are barefooted should give these shoes a try.

About This Item
Bit of Bounce
These are my second pair of the slip on sneakers.I thought I would try the “wide”. Too wide so I exchanged for regular. I stayed with a size 12, like my other pair. Well, these 12's were to long, so I exchanged for 11 1/2.
They fit perfectly. I use dr.scholls custom inserts, which provide additional support and comfort. I can walk for a long time and my feet don't get tired.
Adds a bit of bounce to my step as well.
Very casual but can also wear them for going out.
Definitely my go to shoes.
Great shoe, weird fit
The elite flex line is great overall, with the Wasick completing the lineup, but there are some caveats. First, it took me around 10 days to break in completely--this should really take 1-2--and the shoes fit oddly. Not enough room for big toe, pinky toe, a TINY bit too much room in front (vertically). But, comfortable, cushiony, and cool-looking!
I would buy it again but a half size bigger
These shoes I purchased just for work but they are small and pinch my toes which after 8 hrs on my feet is extremely painful, I have wide feet and these are great with width but with sizing is small, so I'd go up half a size if you have shoe sizing problems like me
