Skechers Go Walk Joy shoes are praised by podiatrists

Do you need some supportive kicks? Check this out: Amazon’s best-selling walking boots — the Skechers Go Walk Joy — retail for $40 in a variety of colors and sizes. There’s a reason they’re called “joy” – they’re so comfortable you’ll get a kick out of every time you put them on. The sneakers are lightweight and flexible, with ultra-responsive cushioning. A breathable mesh upper lets your toes breathe, while the soft fabric lining and padded collar add a cloud-like vibe. Did we mention they’re also an Amazon No. 1 Bestseller?


They are available in so many colors and both narrow and wide widths. It’s this variety that helped them garner over 58,000 five-star reviews.

Here’s the coolest part: the Skechers sneakers even have the podiatrist seal of approval:

“Excellent hiking boots should be supportive, lightweight, and right for your specific foot type,” explains podiatrist Dr. Dana Canuso to Yahoo Life, who picked this pair as one of her favorite hiking boots. “My most recommended hiking boot is one with a moderate amount of stability, a supportive arch, and plenty of cushion.”

Shoppers with plantar fasciitis and other foot conditions are hooked.

“These are the most perfect, wonderful shoes if you suffer from extremely painful plantar fasciitis,” reported one customer. “I’ve seen countless specialists and podiatrists who focus on foot problems. I’ve spent over $1,600 on three orthotics that didn’t help. I’ve probably spent over $1,500 on specialized shoes that I rarely wear. But these shoes give me so much relief. They are like cushions for the feet.”

Another agreed: “These have been a game changer for me! They have been amazing from the first moment I got in them! I didn’t have to break them in at all; they feel so soft and comfortable, like walking on clouds !My plantar fasciitis is still there but these have helped tremendously!”

Teachers are raving about these babies too!

“I call these my preschool shoes because I can put them on as a kindergarten teacher and wear them for anything,” one of them commented. “They are so comfortable that you don’t have to think about your shoes while working.”

Another added, “So comfortable! I’m a substitute teacher and I’ve had a long term assignment as a paraprofessional. I walk and stand a lot but my feet still feel great at the end of the day!”

Even nurses are sold.

“My wife is a nurse and she is on her feet all day,” shared a five-star reviewer. “She wore these and came home so happy her feet didn’t hurt. Extremely comfortable!”

“Love these shoes!!” says another. “I work as a nurse and work long hours and shifts, so these were VERY necessary! Compared to my Dansko’s, these are even more comfortable, and I spent $95 on them.”


They look great both with and without socks (and they’re comfortable fresh out of the box!)
