Fits well. Disappointed in cushioning.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 July 2021
I wanted to try Skechers shoes as my wife and others rave about them. I wanted these for the gym, to replace a very old pair of a well known brand leader, which had passed their better days. There is little doubt that as soon as I put them on, they were comfortable and I walked around the house for ten minutes or so to see how they felt. Initially they felt good, however I was disappointed to find that, before very long, and specifically once the insole was compressed, the balls of my feet felt as if they were contacting the floor without any substantive cushioning through the outer sole itself. I tried again, twice more, but sadly found the same thing.
I can’t offer a reason, as I have no idea how the outer sole is constructed, but having checked, my old shoes seem to have a degree of cushioning from the outer sole that the Skecher shoes do not. Good cushioning in both heel and sole is important to me, and these didn’t do it for me, so they were returned.
