Men's Double Strap Walker
I have been buying CrossTrekkers for many years. I loved them. I am currently wearing a pair that are at least 5 years old and I have 4 more pair that are much older. They got marked up and dirty but they held together even after cleaning in the washing machine. I used to buy mostly white but I couldn't get them for several years so recently I switched to black. The quality of the shoe is terrible. The heels wear out within a few months and the heels and soles come apart. I just threw a pair away that were less than 6 months old. I used to buy them 2 or three pair at a time, but no more, until the quality improves. I still have 2 pair (black) which the store clerk said were of improved quality. It is too early to tell.

great shoe for special boy
I love this shoes because it helps me and my special autism-mental impaired son the right shoe: because its easy to put on an take off himself. I hope Payless keeps it as a special line in all sizes, having in mind those special parents and kids like mine for whom now days is hard to find the right shoes to fit their needs. Thank you
Payless a five star.*****

Bought for Years and Will Keep Buying
I've been wearing these for years now. I have a fifty-year history of RA, have prosthetics that I must wear in my shoes, and am unable to bend to fasten shoes and so use a "Golden Retriever" reacher stick that works great to fasten the velcro straps. For comfort, I remove the insoles and replace them with Dr. Scholl's gel sport insoles atop my prostheses.
For me and my situation, these shoes are ideal and the most comfortable that I've ever been able to find, and, believe me, I've done plenty of looking. I will agree with some other reviewers that these aren't as well-made nor as long lasting as they used to be. Seriously, though, people -- they're only $30 a pair!!! If you can get them BOGO, your cost is $15 a pair! For someone who is extremely active and constantly on their feet, another choice might be better. For most though, I believe these shoes will be superb.

these shoes are comfortable, light weight and great for walking in. Also the easy strap on is ideal for every one , especially the elderly.

Best everyday shoe
I used to buy these at the local payless store, until they stopped carrying them. I found them online, and I have been buying them here for years. I have gone through more than 20 pairs. Seriously at least 20 pairs! I buy them 4 pair at a time, and wear them (every day, for a few months) till they get dirty, then switch to a new pair. When I have a bunch of dirty shoes, I throw them in the wash, and it is like a new set of shoes. Nothing comes close in comfort. I like nice wide shoes.
Unfortunately, this time Payless is out of stock on almost all the sizes of the White shoe. I have one pair left. I hope they restock in the next few months. I would hate to have to find a different shoe.

Excellent shoe for problem feet
If you are looking for a shoe with excellent comfort stop looking this shoe is for you! My son (little kid big feet) is on his second pair. There are no more complaints about ankle rubbing and toe squishing. This pair has even improved in quality over the last pair he had. I would highly recommend these shoes for problem feet.
