Great looking shoe, however, it doesn't seem like its going to be much support when they get worn in. They started very tight and sturdy but as I wear them the fabric loosens up so the support on the side is very minimal.

            I own several pair. I got plantar faceitis and the tempurpedic insole saved my life. I stand for 8-9 hrs a day on cement so I work in them. The colors and styles have me hooked. This one is a shoe I will only wear when dressing to go out it's beautiful and I absolutely love the style. Can't wait to buy my next pair.

              Q:

              Can the Bright Idea Elevated be ordered without the metal gromits around the lace? I work in a metal free department and these sneakers are not acceptable with metal but what I'm looking for. Is it possible to get them without the metal?

                A:

                Currently these are made only with the metal grommets in the high top lace up version, but if you like the look, there is a slip on version, the Bright Idea, that has no metal.

                A:

                It should be pretty fast - in fact, you may not even need to use express shipping to get your order sent in the quickest amount of time, since you're on the West Coast. Usually it takes 3 to 4 days to get an order on the West Coast.

              Q:

              I am interested in the Bright Idea Elevated sneaker in size 10. The site indicates that it is out of stock in size 10. I have been checking back frequently to order the shoe. Is this size going to be restocked, if so what is the anticipated date? If it is not going to be restocked, I'd like to know so that I can stop checking. Thank you.

                A:

                It looks like more of the Bright Idea - Elevated in the black color should be coming into stock around late September, so there should be more size 10 coming then. You may want to put in an email reminder by clicking on the size 10 and entering your email where indicated. You will get an email when the shoe is back in stock in that size.

                A:

                This particular shoe is made of a knit stretch fabric, so it should stretch a bit in a size 8. This particular model isn't made in half sizes, partially due to the stretch design.

              i usually take between an 8 and 8 1/2 in sneakers. in the sweet symphony Burst i took an 8/12. i just noticed that these sneakers dont come in half sizes so should i get an 8 or 8 1/2?

                A:

                Given the whole sizes, your choice would be between the 8 and the 9. I'd imagine that the 8 might be a little small, though the material stretches a bit, and the 9 may be a little large, though you could wear these with a medium-weight sock.

              Q:

              what is the difference in the feel of the heel between the Hollywood rose and the bright idea. is one more comfortable than the other and do they both run the same width wise. just curious cause years ago i got the first wedge sneaker that skechers made and it was very uncomfortable but i believe it was more like a 2 1/2 inch wedge

                A:

                The Hollywood Rose shoe does include an internal wedge heel, but the Bright Idea - Elevated does not have an internal wedge. The Bright Idea has about a 1 1/3 inch heel, while the Hollywood Rose has about a 1 1/2 inch heel including the wedge. I have heard that both shoes are nicely comfortable and should fit about the same width wise. The Hollywood Rose does include the Air Cooled Memory Foam insole, while the Bright Idea does not a Memory Foam insole.

                These are Retail-Store only shoes, so you'd want to look at the store at the West Covina mall, or if you're around there you may want to look at the store at Moreno Valley, the really large one.

              I just saw an ad on TV for Skechers "originals" which are supposed to add a little height to a woman's (not children's) shoe. Are these the ones?

                A:

                The Bright Idea does have a little extra height in the heel, though it doesn't have a hidden wedge. You'd want to look at shoes like the OG 85 - Hollywood Rose and other shoes in the Originals collection (click on the link next to Meghan Trainor, or look for Originals under brands to see the full collection).

                It appears that this specific shoe starts at a size 6, though there are several other similar high top sneakers that are in stock in a 5 and 5.5.

                It's probable that you saw the Burst high tops advertised if that was the ad with Demi Lovato. These are very similar fit-wise with a knit fabric upper, and would also have a slim look.
