Just that really. I don't really want to pay that much for ugly shoes but am willing to gamble on going away for a couple of days with just fitflops & then buying some of these if it rains. Are there any cheaper copy versions as good or should I just get the go walks if need be?
I'm not sure that this is answering your question, but I just wanted to say that the go walks are soooo comfortable! Definitely worth the money and worth the trade off of not being particularly stylish looking.
Thanks Lizzie, I'll probably just get the 'real deal' then-no breaking them in is another draw. It's almost a bit of a guilty pleasure to look forward to. Off to look at the least offensive ones now in preparation!
I just got a pair of sketchers from cloggs online and they only lasted 6 weeks before the heel area wore away and have caused terrible blistering. Up until then they were amazing. A week on and the back of my heel is still killing me. I contacted cloggs and was told tough basically so I'm not happy. I was only using for walking an hour 3 times a week.
Ooo I bought a pair from an outlet shop on Cheshire Oaks ( probably not helpful ) but I've worn them for anything outdoorsy or walking I can't believe I didn't get them before. I got mine for about £25. They look like trainers but are slip ons so they look alright with shorts too.
"Definitely worth the money and worth the trade off of not being particularly stylish looking."
I agree. I am looking for some black slip on summer shoes and tried some Go Walks on in a Pavers concession this lunchtime, and am now regretting that I didn't buy them. I already have a blue pair of Go Walks and a blue pair of ballet style Bobs from last year.
I had an amazing pair of the go walks a few years ago and wish I could afford another pair now they are worn out. They probably lasted me 18 months and I did hours and hours of walking a week. Worth mentioning that I've also had bunion surgery and they were the comfiest thing I've found. Agree that they aren't the prettiest. Have a pair of knock off primark ones now that have gone baggy and not as comfy but only £6. Apparently Costco have the real deal in stock this week if you're a member.
As a poster said deichman have some similar, mine cost £30 from there so not that much cheaper, they are very comfy though, I brought some go walks from sketchers last month which are defiantly worth the extra, not too ugly either, all black slip on's. I started off thinking I looked frumpy, now I don't care as I can walk for miles I love them.
