I got a pair of these almost 10 months ago for work shoes. I work in a restaurant, on my feet almost 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. These are fantastic! Great fit, and comfort, and they aren't as bulky as some work shoes are.
Long story short, I wore these babies a LOT over the last year, and I'm just starting to wear through them now. But I'm back to get another pair!

I have purchased this same style of shoe three times because I like the way it fits around the toes and ball of foot. The upper doesn't pinch, either.
Downside is that I require a good insert due to lack of arch support and cushion. Simple fix to make this shoe a good working shoe.
While this shoe works well for me it does it for a limited time. The upper tends to crack and split. I only get about 3 months max out of them. Then again, I wear them year round in the Midwest. They go through a lot.

Pretty good work shoes...

Comments about safeTstep Women's Athena Sneaker:

I work in a fast food restaurant... During 8 hour shifts of course your feet hurt, but these make them hurt less? The shoes i wore before were awful. And I have a tough time with shoes because I have flat feet. But these babies give me enough support that I can work long shifts; not too shabby.

Buying These Again

Comments about safeTstep Women's Athena Sneaker:

I have owned these shoes for about two years, i work on my feet and am on the go as a CNA, and they just started falling apart a couple months ago (at some of the sewn seams, at the bottom where the rubber sole connects to the shoe, and the fabric of the shoe started to crumble a little where i bend my foot where i walk.) But all that considered they lasted a good long time for the hours on my feet i work, and the for the low price i paid. Also, even though the seam wore out the shoes are still comfortable. They do feel a bit funky when you first start wearing them, but you get used to them. They have good support and the none slip is 100%. And i love the plain white simple professional style.

I really hope Pay Less keeps these shoes for a long time.

A good everyday shoe.

Comments about safeTstep Women's Athena Sneaker:

I bought these for everyday use. When I first put them on, they felt like they didn't fit but after walking around a bit they felt 100% better. I find them very comfortable. They are light compared to some other sneakers that I've bought over the years and they feel like I am wearing slippers. Nice that they are slip resistant as it won't be long before winter gets here along with slippery wet floors. I only gave them three stars for style as there is nothing spectacular about them.

I not only would recommend them to others, I plan to buy more of them so that I will always have some on hand.

Sure the style isn't that great, but when I'm working on constantly slippery surfaces and haven't slipped. work good in snow surfaces . Light weight, soft material. Durable rate: 6 to 8 months. Thank you PAYLESS.

Comments about safeTstep Women's Athena Sneaker:

I think I've been wearing this sneaker since they came out. It's the only one I buy. It fits great and wears well. I always buy when they are on sale and I get a ton of wear for what I pay for. Will keep buying these as long as they are selling them.

Great Work Shoes

Comments about safeTstep Women's Athena Sneaker:

I have been buying these shoes since early 2012 and love them. Originally for a retail job, I slowly started preferring their comfort and fit to my tennis shoes. Needless to say, this is my shoe of choice for both work and daily use. Sure the style isn't that great, but when I'm working on constantly slippery surfaces and haven't slipped once while wearing these shoes? I call that a win in my book. I love these shoes and would highly recommend them to everyone.

Love this shoe for work

Comments about safeTstep Women's Athena Sneaker:

I bough this shoe in white back in May for a new job at a doctors office at the front desk. I have worn this shoe 5 days a week since then. Now I'm off looking to buy another pair because they have already worn out. I am and always have been rough on shoes so that could be part of it. I love the look, and comfort of this shoe. I'm so picky when it comes to shoes that I know better than to shop anywhere but Payless to find shoes that fit my feet comfortably. The first pair I bought of this shoes had a defect in the lace section of the shoe, nothing that would affect it's wear which is probably why they were maked down. Yesterday I went to purchase another pair of these shoes and was trying them on just to be safe and one shoe was missing the whole for the lace. It was the only pair in the store, I decided to go with a different style of shoe by this brand but I have now decided they are going back today and I'm going to go to another store and try my luck with another pair of these. Overall I love the comfort and look of this shoe, the shoestrings could be longer.

horribly painful

By

Comments about safeTstep Women's Athena Sneaker:

I bought these shoes for my new job at a grocery store where I'm working 8+ hours on my feet running around inside and outside. I feel that one star in comfort is too generous for these shoes. The first day as expected they were painful but i thought it was to be expected because I didn't have time to break them in. But the next day after working 8+ hours my feet were screaming in pain even more so. I couldn't even walk properly because of the two huge blisters on my toe they gave me. It's been two days since wearing them and my feet still hurt. I'm going to get different shoes immediately because these, frankly are horrible.
