[QUOTE=deeannek;4184951]I haven't tried out the new skechers but I bought skechers athletic shoe that you just slide your foot into like a mule style shoe. I can't believe how much they helped my leg pain. I was able to walk longer and actually complete a trip to the grocery without having to sit down every few minutes. I guess what I would worry about with the new style shoe is keeping balance because the look like the might have some rocking motion and if you are not on them just right you could re injure your back. Just my opinion though- I hope you find a show that helps. If you do buy these I would be interested in hearing your experience with them.
Well I have purchased the new Sketchers but I have not used them enough to tell if they are going to be a help or not. I have noticed that they are really well cushioned and comfortable but they do tend to make me "wobble" because of the bottom. My ankles want to turn in too so I have to really pay attention to the way I stand and walk. I am not sure if this is going to hurt my back of not but I have a 30 day window to send them back if I do not like them. I bought them in order to get the extra "work out" while I walk so hopefully I can keep them.
I will keep you posted about how they feel. I would love to try the mule type shoes you have but I tend to "walk out of" anything without a back or at leat a strap!
Thanks for the reply,
