I had originally started wearing these for fitness reasons last year and developed the most awful back pain which went down the legs. I stopped wearing them but the pain continued so I thought it was a coincidence but did not wear them again.
Yesterday morning I decided to try them again and put them on for an hour or so. I did notice much more pain in my back and legs when I walked, and then when I took them off my back was by this time in agonising pain. I decided to Google them and it seems that masses of lawyers in America have cases against Skechers, so I shan't wear them any more. They seem to have caused permanent damage, in my case at least.
