    How we test sneakers

    Skechers have hundreds of shoes in their catalog. So, how can we tell which one is the best?

    • Actual users know best, that’s why we make sure to gather all user and expert reviews, analyze their comments, and come up with an unfiltered, unbiased summary.
    • Since we have to see it to believe it, we try to get our hands on the shoe and wear it.
    • We purchase all Skechers sneakers with our own money to stay transparent.

    Based on the above, we assign CoreScores from 0-100 to each shoe and pick out the creme of the crop for this guide.

    Verdict

    When it comes to Skechers kicks, we know for sure that they’re budget-friendly. Even their best sneaks, which for us is the Skechers D’Lux Walker, are not in any way wallet-draining. And given its affordable price point, its quality is amazing. Look at it, it doesn’t look cheap at all!

    Now, surely there’s a trade-off given its price. Unconvinced, we just had to try it, and lo and behold - the one thing we didn’t like about these kicks is their long break-in period, which for us, isn’t really a deal-breaker.

    Once broken in, everything else about this shoe is GREAT. It’s super, crazy comfortable thanks to its plush cushioning down below. Your arches would also thank you at the end of the day because these sneakers are so supportive and stable. What’s more, is that it’s oh so sturdy - something you won’t usually get from a $75 pair of kicks.

    Apart from all that, this kick also looks great on the outside and gives you the extra lift you need. So if you’re into these kicks, go grab a pair. For $75 or less, it’s hard to go wrong with the Skechers D’Lux Walker!

    Verdict

    Skechers would not be here today without its most stylish kick - the Skechers D’Lites. After over a decade this humble kick still looks gorgeous! Chunky, sporty, and retro, it has all the makings of a true blue classic sneaker. 

    First released in the year 2007 (yes, It’s been around for that long), these kicks have been clad in various materials and hues. So, if you’re looking for a shoe that’s available in multitudes of colorways, this is the kick for you.

    When it comes to performance, the D’Lites truly delighted us with its ultra-cozy in-shoe feel. In fact, foot problems don’t have much to say once the feet are surrounded by its plush confines. We also don’t mind the added height since it makes our legs look much slimmer - truly a welcoming treat!

    Although it’s one good-looking and comfy shoe, the D’Lites have a few quirks. Heel slip is something you might not like about this shoe but changing up the lacing a bit does the trick. Tying it can also take time but you can always replace the laces if you want to avoid this minor setback. 

    All in all, this kick still got our thumbs up! If it’s just about looks, this one aced it! Consider its plush confines and sturdy construction an icing on the cake.

    Having trouble finding the most comfortable shoe for your beautiful flat feet? Search no more because Skechers has got you covered! Podiatrist- certified, the Arch Fit is made to fit perfectly on your feet like they’re custom built.

    Shoes engineered for people with foot problems often come with a high price, but not with these bad boys. For only $85, we were able to walk over 10 miles without feeling any back or foot pain. Think plush, firm, and stable! 

    Now, don’t get us wrong. It’s not like the Asics Kayano when it comes to stability. But given its affordable price tag, you’re really getting a lot for less. 

    With these kicks, you won’t only say goodbye to pain, but you’re also in for a mighty smooth ride. Talk about buttery heel-to-toe transitions! 

    And if you plan to go about your day-to-day activities in light rain, go ahead! We tried these on wet pavements and smooth slabs, and it stuck to it like glue. Its mesh upper will also keep your feet feeling warm and toasty.

    Worried about dirt and muck ruining your kicks? Don’t be, because these are machine washable! We tried it and the shoes came out looking pristine with their form and function all intact.
