I need to preface this review with a mention that i have a deformed foot. I have been unable to purchase shoes for about 6 years. The shoes are large for me BUT they allow the deformity to have sufficient room. I have never owned a pair of sketchers before because stores do not stock larger sizes (ie. they think that a size 10 regular width is a large size). I have an eleven wide. The uppers on this shoe are stretchy and are good for both feet. the soles are ok in so far that the built in arch of the sole is exactly where my deformity is--rendering the shoe merely wearable. i do recommend this shoe. I also suggest to the manufacturer that they make some of their men's running shoes more "unisex" in look so that people like me have something to buy that stores will stock.
