The Dr. Scholl's Madison slip-on sneakers have a rubber outsole to ensure you get a decent amount of traction. These shoes are great for those who are going to be doing a lot of walking or are going to be on their feet all day for work so traction is important. You do not want to have to worry about your feet slipping out from underneath you while you are on the go because your shoes could not keep their grip. You will not have this problem with these sneakers. The pattern in the bottom of the soles mixed with the durable rubber will make sure you are able to stay on your feet on a wide variety of surfaces.

In addition to the great traction, the rubber ensures a long lifespan of the shoes. You will not have to worry about them wearing down on you too quickly. They will be able to handle the miles you walking you will be doing in these.


One of the better features about the Dr. Scholl's Madison shoes that customers just love is the Memory Foam Cool Fit insole that keeps you comfortable all day long. This insole, on top of the already comfy midsole, gives you added padding and cushioning that your feet will thank you for after a long hard day on your feet. The foam will mold to the shape of your feet to give you a more personalized underfoot feeling. They know that everyone's feet are created differently so they want to ensure they made a product that will fit everyone as comfortable as possible. The foam insole will also provide you with a decent amount of arch support which is much appreciated by many of the reviewers. In addition to the foam insole molding to your feet, they also have the ability to keep your feet cool which is always a bonus after having your feet in your shoes all day long. The insoles are designed with gel beads that will help keep you cool while you are wearing them.

The insoles of these shoes are removable so if you decided that you do not want to use the one that comes with the shoes it is super easy to switch them out for a different one.


The uppers of the Dr. Scholl's Madison slip-on sneakers are made out of different materials depending on the color and style that you choose from. You will get shoes that are made up of microfiber, faux leather, mesh, quilted fabric, calf hair, velvet, herringbone fabric, or jacquard materials. No matter what colors or style you choose from your shoes will have an extremely soft lining inside the shoes to keep you comfortable, along with a super soft collar.

Even though the uppers can prove to be soft and comfortable there are still a few customers who have issues with them rubbing and causing some sores and discomfort. The bands that are located on both sides of the shoes can rub against the skin on the tops and sides of your feet which is not always the most pleasant. Other customers mentioned that they can rub along the outside of their ankles. Most of this can be solved by wearing socks that will cover that area, but a lot of customers prefer no show socks.


The Dr. Scholl's Madison sneakers offer customers a decent amount of support that they can appreciate, especially if they will be on their feet for extended periods of time. The memory foam that makes up the insoles will mold to the shape of your feet, giving you a decent amount of arch support. That being said, you should note that these are not considered to be stability shoes and they are made more for those with a neutral gait. If you are one of the thousands of people out there who have problems with overpronation or supination, meaning that you tend to roll your feet inward or out while you are walking, then these shoes might not be the best option for you.


When you are purchasing a pair of shoes you are going to want to make sure that you get the proper size. If your shoes are too big or too small then they are not going to be very comfortable and no one wants to be stuck in shoes all day that they are not comfortable in. The Dr. Scholl's Madison shoes run pretty true to size which is great because it takes some of the guesswork out of deciding what size you will need to purchase. If you are unsure Dr. Scholl's does provide a size chart that you can take a look at to ensure you get the best fit for you. There are elastic bands on both sides of the shoes that will help give you a better fit. Since they are slip-on shoes they do not have a lace-up closure so the stretch material is designed to give you a decent fit and keep your feet inside the shoes.

Some customers have stated that these sneakers are a bit wide. Some customers love that but then again, those with thin and narrow feet are not the happiest about this. Just keep in mind when deciding on these shoes that they are wide so if you have narrow feet you might have to wear thicker socks with them to keep them on your feet.


Most customers love the look and style of the Dr. Scholl's Madison sneakers. They are fairly basic and have a simple design, but that seems to work for them. Many customers love them so much that they will opt to purchase more than one pair so they can have them in multiple looks and colors. Customers will be able to find something that will best fit their style and personality.

The shoes themselves are made using a variety of different materials that will give you a different look and feel depending on what you choose to purchase. Not only do the materials and textiles differ but you will also get a variety of color options. You will have the ability to choose from seafoam blue microfiber cool, greige microfiber perforated, grey cloud microfiber perforated, beach metallic denim, black python, black on black lizard print, bone perforated, hot sauce orange cool microfiber, hydrangea chop microfiber, light grey flannel fabric, lilac mist snake print, merlot cool microfiber, merlot microfiber embossed snake, nirvana purple cool microfiber, oxide woven embossed print, rose gold embossed snake print, taupe reptile print, toasted coconut cool microfiber, willow microfiber perforated, blush woven print, navy jacquard fabric, navy luna knit, merlot velvet, rose gold metallic splatter, black matter python, hydrangea cool microfiber, willow green woven print, grey velvet, navy chevron canvas, grey pearlized embossed snake print, gardenia reptile leather, grey/black herringbone flannel, taupe chevron canvas, white luna knit, black luna knit, black pony hair leather, black/white snake print, pewter metallic splatter, white chopout, blush microfiber embossed snake, grey microfiber embossed snake, or pewter snake metallic print.


Customers love Dr. Scholl's Madison slip-on sneakers because they can be worn for many activities and with almost anything. They are more of a casual or work shoes, designed for people that are going to be on their feet for extended periods of time, or for those that are going to be doing a lot of walking. Even though these are great for walking, they are probably not going to be the best choice for running or hitting the gym, as they will not offer you the protections that you will need for those tasks.

These sneakers look great with almost anything. As mentioned above they are designed for a more casual look so they are going to fit right in with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, or maybe business casual slacks; however, these are not really going to work with more formal events. The shoes have a great look that goes with almost anything.


When you are spending your hard earned money on something you are going to want to make sure that it is going to last. It can be super frustrating to buy a pair of shoes only to find out that they are going to fall apart after only wearing them a couple of times. That is not the case with the Dr. Scholl's Madison sneakers. Customers seem to be happy with their purchase and believe that they got their monies worth out of them.

The rubber outsole is made to withstand you miles of walking without wearing down too quickly so you will not have to worry about the sole. Additionally, the midsole is not going suffer from premature wear and tear. The memory foam will hold its shape for a good long while so you will not have to worry about losing that additional padding. Since the uppers are made out of different materials based on the color and style you choose it is hard to say how well they are going to hold up over time, but there have been no customer complaints on them getting holes or falling apart.

The only issue that customers seem to have is that they are a little difficult to keep clean. They tend to get dirty and scuffed up rather easily and cleaning them does not always work the best. One reviewer stated that as she was cleaning her sneakers the materials seemed to change colors and would not come completely clean.


Customers praise just how comfortable these shoes are, but that is to be expected from a pair of sneakers made by Dr. Scholl's. The Madison's have a slip-on design with elastic bands on the sides to help you slip your shoes on and keep them on your feet throughout the day which can help keep your comfortable. Most of the comfort, however, comes from the memory foam insole. The foam is going to mold to your feet, giving you a customizable sole that will give you all the support and comfort that you need. You will also get some arch support which is always nice.

One small problem that customers have mentioned about these sneakers is that the elastic band can rub against your feet, as well as the collars running on your ankles, which can potentially cause blisters. Most reviewers have not had this problem but you should note that there were some complaints.


Breathability is important in your shoes, you want to make sure that you get a decent amount of air flow into the foot chamber so you will stay both cool and dry while you are out and about. Since Dr. Scholl's Madison shoes are made out of a variety of different materials it is hard to say exactly how breathable they are, as some offer better ventilation than others. For example, the ones that are made out knit materials are going to allow more air flow than the ones made out of reptile leather. Even though some of the shoes may not be very breathable, you will still be able to stay cool in your shoes thanks to the Memory Foam Cool Fit insole that is designed with gel beads to keep cool you down all day long.

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a comfortable and affordable pair of shoes for all-day wear then you have come to the right place. Customers have fallen in love with how Dr. Scholl's Madison sneakers feel on their feet and they look great too. Coming in a plethora of styles and colors there is sure to be something that fit your style.
