Skechers are known for their unparalleled comfort technologies and innovative design, but what exactly is it that makes Skechers comfortable? Skechers footwear comes in a wide selection of fits, including classic, wide, stretch and relaxed fit, giving the ability to find your perfect pair. Skechers collections are now being designed with nearly thirty years of experience in the footwear industry, putting podiatrist expertise and experience into every shoe. Many pairs of the GOwalk collection feature Skechers patented Arch Fit insole system, which gives removable podiatrist-certified arch support for the foot, perfect for those with a higher instep as it distributes pressure across the arch, giving stability and balance. Many pairs of Skechers trainers feature the Ultra Go midsole which gives lightweight cushioning, whilst some feature the High-rebound Comfort Pillar Technology for added support. Skechers use an athletic engineered knit mesh fabric upper in the construction of many of their trainers, which gives a stretchy, sport-ready fit with flexibility and support. Knit-in cooling panels are another key Skechers innovation, which keeps feet cool when exercising and optimises the fresh foot feeling. Underfoot, the flexible traction outsoles give support and grip against varied terrains, whilst allowing for movement.
Skechers have a whole host of trainer silhouettes and designs for you to choose from. Styles such as the Graceful Get Connected Lightweight Trainer are imagined in a classic, streamlined, lace-up design for ease at the gym or whilst out and about, or to tap into the on-trend chunkier look, try a style such as the Vigor 2.0 Advantage Leather Trainer which provides all of the Skechers comfort features you know and love, imagined in a chunkier, thick-set silhouette. If laces aren’t for you, why not try a slip-on silhouette for easy on-the-go style? Or opt for bungee lacing like the Bold and Apparent Trainer for a sporty finish!
Skechers have won over one hundred awards for their technologies and innovative designs. Winning awards such as Footwear Plus Company of the Year and Design Excellence, Skechers is world renowned for its reliable quality and trustworthy comfort.
Skechers’ released their first pair of shoes back in 1992, giving them almost thirty years experience in creating shoes for men, women and children. Their first pair of shoes were a men’s lugger boot, which quickly escalated to trainers and then other footwear. By the late nineties, Skechers had reached global success and were known for their innovative design processes and unparalleled comfort features. Skechers GOwalk was brought to market in 2012, quickly followed by Skechers Memory Foam in 2013 and we’ve been obsessed with them ever since! Fast forward to 2021 and the brand’s fit and comfort offerings are still ever expanding, with their latest Arch Fit collection joining the classic, relaxed, wide and stretch fit collections.
Another branch of Skechers shoes is Skechers Work, which has become the number one ranked shoes for work in the US. Offering customers longevity through their made-to-last products, the shoes combine on-trend styling with industry certificated quality for protection and comfort throughout the working day. Combining a Memory Foam cushioned insole with slip resistant rubber traction outsole, the Skechers Work collection footwear is equipped to provide you with all day comfort and support, both inside and out.
Like us here at Pavers, Skechers believe in giving back to their communities, and create innovative charity collections to provide excellent fit, comfort and style, whilst giving back. Thanks to Skechers’ Bobs and Bobs Sport collections, Skechers have donated over four and a half million pounds to saving animals’ lives. Whenever a pair of ‘Bobs for Dogs’ shoes are purchased from Skechers, Skechers make a donation to help the lives of dogs and cats. As a proud partner of the Petco Foundation, Skechers have now helped over one million animals. In addition, since 2011, Bobs has donated over sixteen million pairs of shoes to children all across the world whose lives have been affected by poverty, homelessness and natural disasters. Most recently, they have been supporting those affected by the Californian fires and hurricanes in Puerto Rico.
