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.
A few months ago I purchased the white leather Skechers Shape ups. They were comfortable at first, then my right foot started hurting and I found the shoe was twisting and turning inward causing me to not walk properly. It got to the point I couldn't walk with these shoes on.
I got several my old New Balance shoes out and wore them and my foot got better. I have not had foot pain at all since I started wearing my old sneakers. Then I bought a pair of the black Skechers shape ups thinking they would be better. At first yes, they seem to be fine. About two weeks my right foot started hurting again and it in both shoes the insides felt as if they had deflated somewhat. I am now back in my old New Balance shoes and will never again buy another pair of Skechers.
I was talking with my daughter on the phone this evening and she told me about having to buy a new pair of New Balance because of problems with the right shoe of her Shape Up Skechers, and lo and behold it was the same issue that I had experienced. Which let me to check online to see if there had been a recall or other problems with Skechers Shape Ups. Feeling so strongly about having wasted two hundred dollars approximately in Skechers, I felt compelled to let others know that apparently there is some defect with these shoes.
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.
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.
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.
