I wear them whenever but most recently I wear them to the gym three times a week. I've worn them just about everywhere. My only discomfort is that I have very high arches and would love more support but I always need that with any shoe I buy. If you could add arch support and make them more protected on top I would use them for riding motorcycles. The only damage so far was from a stick in the side that made a little hole that has grown over the years. I've washed the many times with no issues. This is only my first pair still but I will buy this pair again.
