I needed a SUPPORTIVE shoe with thick cushioning when I started walking my newest dog daily on hard sidewalks and to get back to walking for exercise. I tried some more expensive shoes as I pronate really badly but they didn't provide enough cushioning and my whole foot would hurt. I tried these and found that while I DO have to go up a full size from more expensive shoes ( I have been measured for and usually buy a 9 W) that these shoes, for the price, hands down, do provide a thick, shock absorbing layer of excellent support for pounding the pavement every day. The con is they only last, at most about 6 months and then I have to buy again. They also offer NO help with pronation, unless I guess if you ripped out the insole and put in an orthotic, which so far I haven't ( I wear other shoes for shopping etc, so I am not just relying on one shoe all day) They are also supposed to be leather but still seem hard to clean compared with my all leather shoes like Propet. All this aside however I hope that Skechers never stops making this shoe as it is my dog-walking/exercise shoe of choice!! I am also very glad to see that they are making more WIDE shoes styles then ever before-- I am old and heavy now, but I have worn a wide shoe for years, even when I was young, slim and fit!!! More styles in W please!!

* 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.

                A:

                The D'Lites shoes have a rubber traction outsole suitable for walking or gym fitness activities. They are not a Slip Resistant type shoe. If you are looking for a similar shoe with a Slip Resistant type outsole, there are Work versions of the D'Lites available in the Work category.

                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.

                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.

                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.

                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.
