With January winding down, you might need that little extra push to keep that New Year's resolution alive! Exercising on a regular basis was one of my resolutions, so I was really excited to review Skechers' Flex Appeal line. Continue reading to hear about my online experience and impression of this line!
The first thing I noticed was all the different color and style options! There is everything from the most modest of colors to the in-your-face prints and neons. Whatever your workout style is, you're sure to find something you like.
Prices for this line range from $65.00-$75.00. Most of the line fell at $70.00, with only the Serengeti cheetah print hitting $75.00. For a good pair of workout shoes, this seems like a very fair price!
After looking over all the different styles, I chose the Flex Appeal 'New Rival' in black and white. This particular pair fell with the majority of the shoes at $70.00. These are available in many colors! I really liked the ombre detailing of the shoe, and they didn't seem bulky like a lot of athletic shoes tend to be.
My first impression:
- Very sleek and stylish
- Super lightweight
- True to size
This pair came with black laces, but Sketchers was kind enough to also include a pair of hot pink laces! I loved that little extra customization option. It was a nice surprise.
I usually wear a 7 or 7.5, depending on the brand. I always struggle with which size to order online. I went with a 7, because I would rather have athletic shoes a little snug than loose. I was very happy with my choice! With socks, the shoes fit perfectly.
During a workout:
- So light, didn't feel like I had shoes on
- Supportive arches
- The memory foam was amazing
On a typical trip to the gym, I will spend anywhere from 20-40 minutes on cardio. The most dreaded part of my workout was a little more enjoyable with these shoes. They were so light, I felt like I didn't have anything on my feet. The memory foam also gave amazing support.
- Ideal for all kinds of workouts, or people on the go
- A style for everyone
- Memory foam is an A+ in my book
I definitely recommend these shoes to anyone in search of an affordable, stylish and comfortable pair of athletic shoes. I've heard multiple people rave about these shoes - those who work out, and those who are just on the go!

What have you been doing to keep up with your fitness resolutions? I just signed up for a semester worth of training classes. I have a feeling these shoes will be my best friend!
