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 love Sketchers. I live in them, actually. I have ordered from you in the past. I tried on a pair at a local "Famous Brand" shoe store. I was in a hurry as I needed a pair for travel ...... to a funeral. I have always worn 8's ...... forever. I found the store ones tight and not at all my usual. I did a hurry up on line order and went with an" 8 wide." Not good....... I took them on my flight ... wore them on the plane. Not a good fit ...... they fit weird ...... the wide ones are not right for my feet. . seemed to fit too high up on my ankle. I will not get good use of these. As I was in a hurry to get on the plane, I do not know what I did with my paperwork ..... and some family member meant well and disposed of the box so I feel I'd be pressing my luck if I asked to return them to you. I am very disappointed ..... first time ever I've been disappointed with Sketchers. My own fault. I should not have experimented with the 8 "wide." I'll figure it out. Thanks for asking. I still love my old Sketchers ......... and, yes, I'll be back.

          Great shoes, my 4th pair! I wear them to work daily. Very comfortable even when I'm on my feet all day. A big plus is they don't come with memory foam which I would have to remove and replace with insoles!

            Did you discontinue the EW sizes? Is there a specific time when you release new shoes?

              There is no Extra Wide version of women's shoes currently made. A women's Wide Fit is a D width, and there are some Wide Fit versions of Relaxed Fit shoes that fit even wider. For a wider width than that you may want to try men's Wide Fit or Extra Wide Fit, which are 2E and 4E width respectively.

              The style with the stretch laces is the Premium - Premix, which is still available in white. There is also a new version of the Premium with stretch laces, the Latest Craze. Also in white with accent colors. All are readily available on Skechers.com - just search under 'premium' or 'premix' to see them.

            Q:

            I have tried many other black nubuck Skechers styles, but don't like any of them, especially compared to the Premium with its extra padding. Please tell me you are bringing back the Premium in nubuck in wide. I am so sorry I didn't stock up on them because they are the most comfortable travel shoe I've ever owned. I hate the Synergy, memory foam and less padded versions of these shoes. I wish you'd bring back the nubuck in other colors, too. Years ago, I had some pink nubuck Premiums that I wore into the ground. I bought my first pair of black nubuck Premiums over 15 years ago and have bought many, many pairs. I love Go Walk and Go Run, but my most comfortable, walk a million miles pairs always seem to be the Premiums.

              It looks like the style 1718 nubuck Premiums is still made, but no longer made in a Wide Fit version. There are options in a wide fit nubuck sneaker, such as the D'Lites shoes.

              That is correct, Skechers is no longer making new Shape-ups. There are a few scattered sizes available on Skechers.com, and we are collecting customer interest in reviving the styles.

              It looks like the Premium 1718 nubuck version should be coming back into stock in most sizes around mid August or so. You may also like the Synergy 2.0 - Side Step or Synergy - Trend Setter, which are very similar looks in black nubuck.

              Currently all of the D'Lites on Skechers.com have either the Air Cooled Memory Foam insole or no memory foam insoles at all. The Air Cooled design should feel like the Gel insole, they do include a layer of gel cushioning for comfort.

              I would say there is a degree of arch support in every shoe made by Skechers, but it depends on the type of shoe as well as type of insole how much.
