I am so sad that these don't seem to be available in black nubuck any more. I've tried other Skechers styles (Trend Setter Synergy is now recommended, but they lack all the wonderful padding and cushioning and gave me blisters and have a side seam that rubs) but nothing comes close. I have been buying Premiums over and over for 15 years. I can wear them right out of the box and walk forever. The black nubuck was perfect for travel, that shiny black has no subtlety. I miss the old color options. I've had the nubuck in pink (they were so cute), chestnut and stone. I had the white with red laces and and accents. Also pink, black and navy. I see tons of these shoes when I go to Disney. Obviously there are many fans of them! I know shoe companies want to stay current, but these work so well for so many people. I'd hate to see Skechers abandon this classic and so would my feet!

I have purchased your product in the past for work. I'm on my feet for 8 hours a day on a cement floor. Your shoes that are similar to the ones I purchased with the 11/2 inch heel have always been comfortable. These are not ! My back and feet hurt after 4 hours. Your shoes in the past have always been more squishy and had more spring to them. These are not! They are hard like the sketcher and other shoes that are made for work. I am very disappointed in this purchase and am not sure if I will try another style similar to these in sketchers.

            Q:

            I too love the premium in nubuck. I have been wearing mine for about 5 years and the are finally wearing out. I am really hoping to replace them with a new pair. I see there are a few available but not in a size 8. I did try on the memory foam version and they do not compare. Will you be making more of the premium in bubuck?

            Q:

            PLEASE, PLEASE tell me you will be making the nubuck 1718 black again in the wide width! I have been wearing these for many years. They are the best shoe ever! I can wear them right out of the box, perfectly comfortable, and nice enough to be able to wear them to work everyday. I really don't want to have to look for another shoe after all these years of having the perfect one.

              A:

              Currently it does not look like the 1718 is coming back into stock in a wide width black, but this may change in the future. A lot of Synergy and Energy fans also really like the Synergy models in wide, like the 11717 Synergy - Trend Setter, which was modeled after the Premiums in nubuck.

              While the nubuck version of the Premium sneaker is currently out of stock, there is a black nubuck sneaker that looks very similar available in a wide width, the Synergy - Trend Setter.

            There was a Skecher Premium in beige with a brown sole that I love. I still wear them, especially this time of year; and everyone wants to know where I got them. Is this a color you'd consider bringing back? I know lots of us baby boomers would love to see them available again.

              There are still wide widths available in the D'Lites - Extreme and D'Lites - Centennial models. For a plain black sneaker, I would also recommend the Energy or Premiums models.

          • Q:

            I have been wearing these Skechers Premium white/blue for at least 10+ years replacing them every 8 - 12 months.. I have had a broken ankle and need reconstructive foot surgery which I keep putting off. I also have custom made orthotics from a podiatrist. This particular style of shoe has been the ONLY shoe I can wear with my foot problems and get enough support to help stabilize my foot & ankle with a brace on. The shoe in a medium width is still wider than many of your other styles so the orthotic will fit down inside without mis-shaping the shoe. I have been to 3 stores that usually carry them but I can not find them. I am in PANIC MODE!!! Please tell me that you haven't discontinued them! I really don't want to switch to a different brand because I have never found another shoe as comfortable.

              The classic Premium sneaker is still being produced, and more sizes should be available on Skechers.com around mid August or so. It's not usually available at Skechers Retail stores, but you should be able to find it on skechers.com.

              There were some Tone-ups sneakers at one time, but I don't think there were that many available in plain white, except for possibly a slip resistant version. The Premiums are a bit older than the Tone-ups model, but still very comfortable. If you're looking for a comfortable shoe for wear at work, I could suggest the new Shape-ups 2.0 shoe, or the Felton - Albie model.

              A:

              There are some models of shoes with a more durable toe for protection, like the classic Energy and Premium models, the Encore sneaker, and some of the D'Lites sneakers. You may even want to look at Skechers Work shoes with a lightweight alloy toe for additional protection, like in the D'Lites SR - Service shoe.
