Are Skechers Considered Cool?

I bought a pair of loafers and theyre really comfy, but have Skechers in or out?

by Anonymousreply 43July 28, 2017 3:18 AM

If you like them, don't worry about what trend influencers think.

by Anonymousreply 1July 27, 2017 4:18 PM

They are secret. They are safe.

by Anonymousreply 2July 27, 2017 4:24 PM

No, they are far from cool. That doesn't mean you can't wear them. After all, I doubt people know you for being cool.

Oh hush, puppy.

Skechers are about as uncool as shoes get.

by Anonymousreply 5July 27, 2017 4:29 PM

They are shit, I wouldn't be caught dead wearing them.

Crap shoes that offer zero support! I had a pair of memory foam sketchers. While comfortable, they damaged my foot (plantar fasciitis). Threw them away for new balance.

by Anonymousreply 7July 27, 2017 4:34 PM

No. And they never were.

Conversely, they are not horridly "uncool" and so wearing them won't get you funny looks.

They have out OP.

No! I'd rather wear the box.

Not nearly as cool as herring boxes without topses!

seriously, get yourself a pair of nike or adidas. go to their outlet stores if you can't afford. then you can be super cool like the rest of us.

by Anonymousreply 17July 27, 2017 5:13 PM

They're extremely middle of the road and therefore not cool. They're not head-turningly awful, either. But I question why on earth you would think they were cool.

Stay woke, people!

My Grandfather won't wear them.

Oh dear no. If I meet a guy at a bar etc and I notice he's wearing sketchers i am immediately turned off.. I am a female and my female friends all agree it's a deal breaker. My friends and I have always been in to sneakers/footwear and I now work in that industry. If you wear skechers to go to the gym or for excercise/lounging around then that is acceptable. But yes Skechers are the sneakers for Fraus, deplorables and the elderly. My parents wear them but they get a pass because they are elderly.

Skechers are the Dockers* of the shoe world.

Said another way, they are K-Fed of shoes.

*aka "Dorkers"

I have a pair of black Sketchers work boots I bought online for $50. They're holding up pretty well. But I didn't buy them to be "cool."

Actually Fraus love more expensive status shoe like Nike or Rebock, and of course Addis. They want you to think they are just one of the cool guys. Pairs well with skinny jeans and a pair of diamond stud earnings with a baseball cap and pony tail. Its classic Frau trying to be casual cool.

OP, Sketchers started as a skater shoe, and they were considered cool for their time. The company is huge and now have moved into a mass market. So anytime a small company goes big like that they lose the cool factor.

That said, they are going gangbusters with the general public because they offer decent style and good comfort shoes for very reasonable prices. They tend to copy other brands. So if you have a good eye, you can find something very stylish. I bought a pair a while back at an outlet and more people have asked where I got them than other shoes I paid hundreds of dollars for. Talking about casual shoes, stay away from their dress shoes.

R23 R24 I am a real female thank you and I'm not a sneaker dork. I make fun of losers who stand in lines all day for the latest trendy sneaker and would run for the hills if I were to meet one of those cornballs at the bar too. That being said I have taste and Skechers were always a dork shoe. Maybe I'm too urban for your tastes.

I never claimed to dictate fashion. I might work in that wretched industry but most of my clothes are from fucking target. Fuck off

I have a pair that are knock offs of Keds they were cheap and are comfortable.

Definitely Not. Total frau bait.

Wear sketchers if you Fucking want to. If they are comfy Fuck it. OP asked if Skechers were a cool shoe and I gave them my honest answer from the opinion of a straight woman who's straight female and male friends don't fuck with Skechers because it's a corny frauplorable shoe. I was an athlete growing up and also grew up in an "urban" area so my taste in footwear and clothing is not that of the average flyover herb. I wear dollar store flip flops on occasion and I don't give a fuck. Do you OP do you.

Gucci sneakers are very "in" right now but I wouldn't characterize the brand as cool -more like: conspicuous. But if you want to be a little more cool get some Dries Van Noten sneakers. Or if not, a piar of classic Vans or Converse.
