New Shoes - I would purchase these again

Great to wear with jeans or pants.
I have feet issues and must add inserts, these shoes allow this with ease.
These are comfortable enough to wear all day.

The first pair of this same style skechers I inherited from my teen-age daughter. I loved them, wearing them with jeans and got compliments. These were the earlier smooth leather version. I wore them for several years and they finally wore out. When I searched for their replacement online found this style which I thought was the same. I noticed the "scuff-resistant" description, but didn't think anything of it. When the shoes arrived I was a little dismayed that the scuff-resistance actually meant "rough out" leather. Compared to the earlier smooth leather version, this rough-out leather looks less classy, looks dirtier more easily, and just less "nice". I guess the Skecher company thought that the smooth leather got complaints from customers that they couldn't keep their smooth leather shoes looking nice, so they roughed up the leather, so now it Always looks Not nice. I wish Skechers would make both versions available, smooth and scuff-resistant. I like to wear a leather shoe that has a clean polished leather look to it, and the scuff-resistant shows up little dirt and dust marks very easily. Also as an added note, within about three months of wearing these shoes, the bottom tread began to wear through at the ball of the foot, and if I stepped in any water it seeped up into the shoe. A wet foot! Ugh! So, a more durable tread would be very good.

    I love this shoe and wear it every day for work. I am on my feet a lot of the time and they are very comfortable. This is my 4th pair. Any shoe that lasts for a year with everyday use is a good bargain.

    Use these for my outdoor job and with casual clothes. Wear them several times a week in the winter and they repel water/snow well. Toes scuff a bit but think that is OK for how well they wear. Getting my third pair. LOVE them :)

        Comments about Parties - Mate:

        I love these "boots" Been wearing them since my mid 20's
        Went a few years though without them, finally decided to get myself a pair and I couldn't be happier! They're the same shoes I've always loved but I'm pretty sure they've updated the soles (more rugged) and the tongue is, fluffier? Very comfy!

              A:

              The Parties - Mate is fairly substantial with a thicker rubber sole, it should weigh about 15 to 18 oz. per shoe.

            Q:

            These used to be a smooth leather, why are they suede now? Much harder to clean and keep looking new. Is the original shoe available?

              A:

              The Parties - Mate shoe has not changed the texture of the upper that I am aware of, they are a matte-finish scuff resistant smooth leather. They are not suede, but also not a polished smooth leather. There are several similar shoes like the Thrash in stock that are similar looking but have a smooth polished upper.

          • Q:

            I notice these shoes have 1/2 inch thick lug traction sole & a 1 inch heel. Does that mean they will make me 1.5" taller or 1"?

              The heel height is a total of 1 inch, so they should add an inch to your height.

              A:

              The Parties - Mate are not considered to have a 'slip resistant' traction outsole for a workplace. There are several similar work shoes with slip resistant outsoles available in our Skechers Work section, including an upcoming shoe that is almost the exact same design as the Parties oxford.

              A:

              While it's less likely that these particular Parties - Mate shoes will be made in a non-leather material, it is more likely that Skechers will make something very similar to these in a non-leather material. For a quick reference to all shoes available on skechers.com that are made without any leather, check out the 'Vegetarian Shoes' category under Collections.

              I would recommend using Mink Oil or a similar leather conditioning spray or lotion on the Parties - Mate shoe to keep the leather supple.

              A:

              The Parties - Mate are a bit lighter than they look, but pretty heavy compared to an athletic shoe. I'd put them around 14 to 18 oz. per shoe depending on size.

              A:

              If by 'non scuffing' you mean the soles will not leave marks on smooth floors, then the Parties - Mate do have that type of outsole.

          • Q:

            Does the natural pair also come with a pair of tan laces? I know sometimes Sketchers adds another pair of laces that are a different color, and I think I'd like the option of switching from the teal color to tan once in while.

              This is often the case with SKECHERS shoes, though I haven't looked in the box to verify they come with plain tan laces.

              A:

              While the Parties - Mate does have a good traction rubber outsole, it is not rated as a Slip Resistant outsole if you require that for a workplace. I would recommend looking at the women's Caviar II SR shoe as a similar looking shoe that is slip resistant for a workplace.
