Exersoles were the most comfortable shoes!! When they were purchased at a Thom McAn store the shoes came in there own burlap bag. I still have the bag but not the shoes. Wish I chould purchase them again!

The new exercising Sketchers remind me of these shoes. Wish they would bring these back again. They are still the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn!

Exersoles were from the mid-to-late 70s to early 80s. My oldest brother bought me a pair from Thom McAn...(remember when they had their own store instead of a shelf at K-Mart?) I had the "buff" colored ones. Not really smooth leather, not really suede, Nu-Buck. Those were THE best shoes ever. Then our local department store sold knock-offs which were genuine leather, but about $15 cheaper. Once they hit the knock-off stores, it was all over. Who knows? Maybe Thom McAn copyright infringed on Birkenstock because I see Birkies that LOOK like Exersoles!

I to wish Exersoles would come back as most of the comments are. I to think they were the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I had a white pair which I waitressed in and some were 14 hour days on my feet with no problem! If someone knows how to contact a shoe company I would definately write them.......I also had a pair of brown leather for everyday Exersoles.

The other day I went digging through my closet and found my old exersoles from Thom McAn. Been wearing them the last couple of days and they are still as comfortable as ever

Please bring back the ThomMcAn Exersoles sz11 Wide They were a light-weight Leather Mustard color with only 2-3 laces! Ever since they stopped making them I've had a LOT of slip& fall accidents!
