PENNSYLVANIA -- August 13, 2012, I purchased one pair of Sketchers for work: slip resistant women's 9.5 size #76492/BLK CHANT "built for work" shoes, from Famous Footwear in Wayne, PA. I attempted to wear shoes at work and had to take them off. I work for the Hotel Industry and I am a kitchen worker so I thought the slip resistant soles would be perfect for my job. The shoe seemed comfortable to wear when I tried them on in the store, however within minutes my ankle became extremely sore. All I can say is I will never wear or recommend Skechers for work again.
Before I started wearing the Shape-Ups I had absolutely no heel pain, but after wearing them for almost 2 years I started having severe heel pain in both feet when getting up in the morning and even after just sitting. Has anyone else had this? I plan on seeing a foot doctor and if they can tell me that this is a shoe related issue I am then going to seek advise from an attorney.
BAY CITY, MICHIGAN -- I recently purchased a pair of Skechers Shape-Up Shoes. I do a lot of walking, I like the Shoes, but I brought the shoes in March and 4 months later the inside of the shoe in the back is falling apart. I too went online to the Skechers Website to read about the Warranty. There is none, it stated "as is". I really enjoyed the shoes. It's too bad that the inside of the back of the shoes are falling apart.
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I bought a pair of steel toe boots at Academy in about 3 months ago and the bottom of the shoe lace came apart and took it to Academy to get an exchange and told me they could not do exchange because of the wear and tear on the boots. That's what I bought them for, not to have them on my closet. Now I have to buy another pair of steel toe boots to continue working.
Love the shoes, except they completely fell apart. The soles have come unglued and there's a hole in the right foot - near smallest toe. Super glue only lasts so long on the bottom. Like I said, love the shoes, but I will never buy them again. I've gotten more wear out of my $13 K-Mart knockoffs than these name-brand $100 Skechers. Too bad.
