We Review: Skechers Flex Appeal with Memory Foam

Skechers Flex Appeal Sneaker Review

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!
Skechers Flex Appeal: A Review

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!

Sketcher's flex appeal

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.

Skecher's Flex Appeal: A Review

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! If you've had the opportunity to try these shoes, please comment below and share your thoughts!

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!

I absolutely agree, the memory foam is amazing! Before, I had low budget jogging shoes and Originally wanted to buy Nikes but didn't find a pair that fit me. Then I discovered these (I have the navy/turquoise/pink version) and they're really comfty! I go to the gym for BodyAttack twice a week and it's perfect. Better than Nikes, too!

Thank you for this review! I just bought these from Nordstrom Rack, and they are so darn comfortable, I was wondering if they were even made for working out! Sounds like they are perfect for all types of activities.

RE Sketchers

I, too, can't believe these trainers are actually training shoes! They are so comfortable and light. Also very pretty. I'm a sketchers fan from now on in. Sorry Nike!

I have purchased and worn out 6 pairs of the Memory foam sketchers and I find they all hurt my feet. the foam dimples and when walking it pushes on the end of my tows. I have been a customer of Sketchers for ever! But can never Purchase another memory foam shoeas the Sketchers
