Hubby and I are SKECHERS shoes fans. Whenever we need them we head straight to the Vaughan Mills Mall to see the outlet store there. It always has a huge selection and we get great help from the ladies and gents there.
The shoes always hold up to whatever we do to them, and they are so comfy. Not only that they look good as well. Hubby has to wear shoes that aren’t runners for work, but don’t have to be fancy dress shoes, so the less casual shoes from SKECHERS works perfect for that, and also for church.
We were both sent shoes to test out, and I picked these beauts for me:
Relaxed Fit: Easy Going – Repute
One time when we went into the SKECHERS store, hubby found a pair he liked they had the 1/2 size down, and the 1/2 size up from what he needed but not his size. He always struggles to find a pair that he really likes in any kind of shoe. We he usually finds a few pairs he likes but has a hard time deciding. But when he found the Citywalk – Elendo in the chocolate brown he really liked them, the first shoe he picked up. That doesn’t happen for him.
We found them in the black in his size but he already had black shoes, and wanted something in a different colour. So he found another pair of chocolate shoes, and we ended up buying those. But I can tell he doesn’t like them as much. He likes them but not as much as the Elendos. So when I got a chance to review the men’s shoes, and I saw the Chocolate Elendo in his size I did something I would never do….I got them for him. I will buy whatever shoes I like for the boys, and me, but never just pick out shoes for hubby. He needs to find the ones the likes, as he is the one that has to wear them. Our boys, I know exactly what they will like so it’s easy for me.
Well when they arrived, he knew they were the ones he wanted but wasn’t able to get. I asked if I did well and he said I did great! Woot!!
They are a Smooth leather lace up shoe that is in a dress casual oxford style. They have stitching and overlay accents, and have Air Cooled Memory Foam insole.
The front is slightly squared toe so it isn’t overyly rounded but isn’t too square. That was something hubby had noticed in store and really liked. Now that he has them he has mentioned that he likes the shock absorption and also the rubber ‘cleat’ traction details. They were great when we were walking on sidewalks and hit a slightly icy patch.
