SKECHERS – Give the Gift of Comfort this Season


Comfortable, Stylish & Durable


When I’m looking for shoes for my boys, I’m looking for shoes that are durable. I want a shoe that is going to last either the year or until their next growth spurt, whichever comes first. I made the mistake of buying shoes that were less than last spring, and before summer even arrived they had shoes that were falling apart and needed replacing much earlier than I was expecting. I also want a shoe with a good fit, that will allow a little bit of room for growth (because I don’t want to have to replace shoes every three months).

It was then and there that I decided, going forward, I am only going to purchase high-quality shoes that will stand up to my active boys.

The boys, of course, want shoes that are stylish and comfortable (and if it causes envy with their friends – they’re good with that too). With all of this in mind, we have a check-list of sorts when it comes to buying the boys their shoes.

  • Durable and High Quality ✔
  • Affordable ✔
  • Comfortable ✔
  • Good fit, with a bit of wiggle room for growth ✔
  • Stylish ✔
  • Will make friends jealous ✔

SKECHERS gives us everything on our list, and more. High-quality, well made shoes that are comfortable, affordable, and durable. Because they carry half sizes, you can purchase half a size up to allow lots of room for growth spurts over the year. They have a wide selection of shoes for just about every taste, and they are guaranteed to cause envy – because they are just that awesome.

The hardest part for Thomas and Kristopher was picking out which pair of SKECHERS they wanted because the selection is quite large. They both opted for low-key black and white coloured shoes.


Kristopher picked the HYPERJOLT in Charcoal/Black, and we went with a half size to allow him room to grow. These shoes should last him until next summer, if not until the beginning of the next school year.


These are Kristopher’s first lace-up shoes, and he’s very proud of himself for being self-taught at tying his shoes. He picked it up much quicker than Thomas did (which was a relief for me).


The HYPERJOLT feature an Air Cooled Memory Foam Sole that Kristopher describes as soft, comfortable and “feels good when I jump and play.”


Thomas’ choice was the SKECH-X: COSMIC FOAM II – OVERRUN in Black/White. We went with a half size for him as well to allow for growth spurts so that hopefully these shoes last him until the beginning of the next school year (or later).


The SKECH-X: COSMIC FOAM II – OVERRUN feature a Cosmic Foam textured midsole, and they come in a stylish and fun cartoon shoe box. For added fun, there was an included small graphic novel (comic book) accompanying the shoes.


Thomas loves these shoes. He says that they are “the best shoes” he has ever had. He no longer complains about sore feet, even after a day of walking, and he tells me that these shoes allow him to “run faster, jump higher, and give him more power on the playground” (whatever that means). He said that his feet feel “warm and cozy”, and that his shoes are “like a bed for his feet” so his feet are “resting even when he’s running.”

    I would love to choose the S Lights: Lumi-Luxe pair for my daughter – she absolutely loves them because they 1) light up 2) are pink and 3) are associated with superheroes (in her mind, because of the words!). I love that they look like sturdy shoes that would be easy for her to get on and off, and I also love that they have velcro at the top instead of laces because her classroom teacher does not allow laces unless the kids can do them themselves and my daughter just turned 5 last month and hasn’t quite mastered that skill yet. These would be perfect school shoes for her (runners are required) and her current shoes are starting to get snug so I’d love to replace them with these!
