This Skechers Go Walk shoe soles have little bumps and gaps between the bumps.Based on how the bumps wear out, I believe it has a potential to create a suction effect causing the shoe to stick to the ground temporarily and it has to be taken off with force.
When you walk, if one feet moves forward and the the shoe on the other feet sticks to the ground, you have a potential to fall. This is what happens when you wear these shoes and you have totally no control on how you will be injured. I had a suspicion it was the shoe as I didn't see anything abnormal on the ground that would cause me to trip.
Later, after the fall and injury, I googled and I found this site where others have had falls and fractures due to this shoe.I believe this can happen and I feel sorry for everyone who was injured just because they wore this Skechers Go Walk shoe.

I have using a Skechers Go Walk shoe with Goga mat padding on the inside for the last 3 months or so.I liked the comfort of the shoes and I used to walk with them.
Last week, I was about to trip at a parking lot, I managed to balance and avoid a fall, I didn't notice anything on the ground that would cause the trip. I had a suspicion it could be the shoe, but couldn't confirm it. Yesterday, I went for a short walk in my neighborhood. There was nothing on the sidewalk and I suddenly fell flat on my face bruising my lips and breaking two of my teeth.
I had to rush for dental emergency and they indicated that teeth are badly cracked, I have to extract it and since they are the front teeth, I need to so some implant or bridge replcament procedures. I am not only disfigured by this accident, I also need to incur a lot of expense to fix my broken teeth. I would really like to protest to Skechers to stop selling this shoe. I would also like some compensation for the damage it has caused me.
I can provide photos, Xrays and billing proof for the procedures I am about to go through.I dread buying Skechers and I would like to spread the word to others so they could avoid such unfortunate injuries.
