"Discovered" this style MANY years ago! I don't even look at other brands, styles. This shoe has been comfortable, durable, consistently good quality. I had foot injuries 20+ yrs ago, and need adequate arch support to prevent pain'n'discomfort. THESE shoes are perfect. I generally replace them after 13-15 months of wear .... still use the older pair for working in the garden, wearing the new pair for everywhere else.
LOVE the "buy one/get one half off" sales. I always purchase 2 pair on this sale, which means that I purchase shoes only every 2-2.5 yrs! works well for me!

* I bought these shoes for work. I love Skechers shoes, but I don't love these. I walked in them in the store and thought then that they felt pretty comfortable until I actually received them and wore them to my job.
* I like the look of the shoe. That's what attracted me to them in the first place. They're black for my job and I'm able to polish a little bit of the shoe.
* I don't like the very small arch support. I don't think they are comfortable shoes to wear on an 8-10 hr. work day. Not enough cushion. I had to buy a cushioned arch support in order for me to wear them.
I'm a Security officer and I'm on my feet 8 to 15 hrs. a day. When I get home I can't wait to take them off because my feet are throbbing in them. This is actually the second pair I've bought in one week. The first pair bruised my big toe on my left foot.
* I will continue to buy Skechers but no longer for work as I have in the past. Very displeased with these.

          I love these shoes. They are comfortable and nice looking. I am on my feet at work for 8+ hrs a day. I have loved every pair of Skechers I have ever had. On a down side, these are hurting my heels. I'm not sure if it is because the arch isn't high enough, or what it is. Would recommend them tho.

            Q:

            Are these shoes slip resistant?

              A:

              This specific model of D'Lites has a very good traction outsole, but it is not considered to be a slip resistant sole if you require that type of sole for a workplace. There are D'Lites models in the Work category that do have the Slip Resistant technical outsole design.

              A:

              The D'Lites - Fresh Start are not waterproof as they come, but they have a smooth leather upper, and you can apply a leather 'rain and stain' type product to the upper to make it water resistant.

              The Air Cooled Memory Foam insoles of the D'Lites - Fresh Start should be able to be pulled out with a little extra force.

              A:

              It looks like the black version of this D'Lites - Fresh Start should be coming back into stock around mid May, though it may be sooner. The white color should be coming back into stock in mid February. To be notified by email, simply click on the size/width that is out of stock, and you will be prompted to enter your email. You will receive an email when the shoe is available again on skechers.com.

            I had a few pairs of brown and black suede D'lites with no laces and I loved them. Do you still make them? I can only find them on black leather with laces but I prefer suede and to slide them on. Thank you!

              I also had the black slip ones. They discontinued them and I am trying to convince them to bring them back. They are so versatile and I am very comfortable with them at work.

              While those older models of D'Lites are no longer available, these new generation D'Lites shoes have just started, and there may be nubuck or suede versions made with stretch laces.

              The tongue appears to be leather. There are perforations for cooling and a mesh fabric collar.
