Skechers advice please

I'm looking to replace my current pair of Skechers which have lasted me years but is now looking tatty.

I've been doing lots of browsing about the sizes but it seems it depends on the style. I'm interested in this style but want to know if anyone who already owns it can tell me whether I'd need to size down by 1 or 1/2 size, please.

If you have any suggestions on alternatives that are more attractive and comfortable, then they are welcome too.

Look up rieker shoes as well- some are similar in style to the 'old style' of skechers. Amazon have loads

I have these ones and had to size down by 1 so that they would fit !

Thanks for replies. I shall have a look at Reiker too.

I take a size smaller in Skechers - the same size as I take in Nike.

My sketches say US 7.5 , UK 4.5. That's not the usual conversion. US 7.5 is closer to UK 5.5. If you can, go by the US size.

I've got a pair in that style, I had to go down a whole size. They are more flat and therefore less comfortable than the regular Go Walks and they are cut so low at the front that they make my feet look a bit square.

I've only worn them twice.
