SKECHERS Shoes and Boots for the Whole Family

Skechers shoes lineup

When I hear SKECHERS, I think running shoes. Or at least I used to. This fall I was offered the opportunity to review some SKECHERS shoes, and when I went through their catalogue I was struck by how much more they have than just runners. SKECHERS has a fantastic selection of shoes and fall boots too!

All summer long, I live in sandals, but when the cold weather hits, I’m a boots girl. I wanted to try a pair of SKECHERS boots, and these black suede Women’s Disco Bunny Boots cried out to me, “Pick me! Pick me!” I’m always nervous about ordering shoes online. Will they fit true to size? Will they be comfortable? Will they look as good in person? When it comes to these boots, the answers were yes and yes and yes!

These low slouch boots with faux fur on the shaft are adorable with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings. They’re not snow boots by any means, but for our milder winters they’re just perfect! At 5’3″, I’m a fan of high heels. I just love how they look, but they have to be comfortable too. I’ve got two kids to chase after, and I can’t do that if I’m wobbling or limping around. These heels are about 3″ tall, but the sole is close to 0.75″ thick so I would say the actual height is just under 2.5″. That’s just right for me, and the chunky heels feel nice and stable making these a good choice for an everyday boot.

Hubby on the other hand, was looking for shoes he could wear to work. He had quite a few requirements though. The shoes had to look business casual at minimum, but he was also looking for more ankle support since banging up his left ankle last year. Hubby takes the train downtown and then walks to and from work every day so they also had to be comfortable for walking. These Mark Nason Men’s Crossover Boots in dark brown fit the bill perfectly.

He’s been wearing them more or less daily since he got them, and he’s really pleased with how they feel. You can’t tell they’re boots under his pant cuffs, but they do help support his weak ankle. The rubber soles have deep treads with great traction, so he can tell these will be safe for walking on slick sidewalks in the winter months too.

For the girls we decided to have some fun and let them each pick out a pair of SKECHERS’ light-up shoes. Tee received the Girls’ Magic Lites: Skech Airlites – Gleamin Dream in charcoal/multi. These shoes have a memory foam insole so they’re really comfortable to wear, and the translucent air cushion sole lights up.

The coolest part is that each glittery shoe lights up with two different colours. The left shoe lights up in green or white, and the right in pink or blue. The lights are controlled by a little button on the Velcro strap that changes the colours and turns it off. Thank you, Skechers, for including an on/off switch! After five weeks of testing, they’re a bit dirtier, but that’s about it. They still look and feel good.

And finally, little Kay received this pair of Girls’ Twinkle Toes: Shuffles – Pretty Blossom. These are the girliest, princessiest shoes I’ve ever seen, and my three-year-old absolutely adores them! They’re pink and covered in pink glitter and pink 3D flowers, and the rubber toecap has rhinestones and LED lights – basically everything a three-year-old girl could ever think to put in a shoe. I just wish that the super bright LED lights had an off switch so Kay could wear them in school.

Unfortunately, these were not quite as durable as the other pairs we tried. Let me preface this by saying my three-year-old is hard on her shoes. She plays in the dirt, she falls over several times a day, she drags her feet when she rides her tricycle… But after five weeks of use, the glitter has started to flake off the Velcro and canvas straps where they flex to open and close. This leaves them looking more beat up than any of the other pairs of shoes. Next time I would probably buy Kay a pair of Skech Airlites like her sister’s.

  • I want/need some shoes that don’t lace up but would be suitable for working out. One of the pairs I like is the Women’s Synergy- Scene stealer. I bet I’d get lots of compliments in the medical exercise program I’m required to start! 🙂

  • I would love to get the BOY’S MECCA – BUNKHOUSE in Black for my 8 year old, I think it’s a nice dressy style boot! I also really love the WOMEN’S FLEX APPEAL – NEXT GENERATION in Gray/Coral for myself! :o)

  • I love my Skechers shoes, I don’t buy anything but. I would love to get a pair of Womens Encore in pink, I absolutely love em. Skechers are the best shoe out there, good quality shoes for reasonable price. Thanks for the chance to win, I’m due for a new pair of shoes, my Skechers are now just getting rips in them and I’ve had them for 4 years love em, they are still comfortable but worn out 🙂 .

  • I would choose this pair for my daughter!

  • I’ve tried on the Women’s Synergy – Spot On and they were like a CLOUD! so i’d definitely choose those

  • Hardly any shoe companies even made wide enough shoes for wide feet. And shoe makers, get wised up- even kids can have wide feet. I have two granddaughters that have wide feet, too. And one of the boys. He was crying in frustration for he could not find Soccer shoes to fit. Skechers at least has come 3/4 of the way with the relaxed fit. Which should be called PROPER fit shoes. Healthy feet shoes. I do not know if they would fit me however.. but the kids could wear them. And my hubby who has narrow feet. I would get light up shoes for the kids cause they love those. And men’s after burn M for the hubby. I’d try a youth boy’s size. They made the boy’s and men’s automatically wider than all the ladies!

  • I really like the Women’s Flex Appeal – Next Generation in grey and coral. I have never owned a pair of Sketchers, thanks for the chance!

  • I could choose so many styles that I would be thrilled to have! But my very favourites were the Women’s Buckles!

  • Loving the Twinkle Toes Glam Slam Classic Charmer boots for my daughter – and I love that the website shows that they light up! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • I really like quite a few different pairs, but I do desperately need a new pair of runners or fitness shoes. The Sketchers Women’s Flex Appeal Next Generation caught my eye. Thanks.

  • I love th Women’s Equalizer in Mesmerized but I could also see me buying the family each a pair of Skechers Go Walks! 🙂

  • i would pick these . i had a pair before and loved them , i love that they just slip on and they are so comfy .

  • FYI, I have liked Sketcher SEVERAL TIMES and each time, when the page is reloaded, I am no longer a follower. I already took credit for it. Not sure if it’s happening to others and what to do!?

    Besos Sarah.

  • I would definitely choose the Girl’s Twinkle Toes: Shuffles – Sweet Steps for my 2 girls! I would get silver/hot pink and turquoise/pink for them, how cute!
