Skechers Women's Bikers
Advantages: Very comfortable and no slipping or rubbing
Disadvantages: The price
My fiancé Mark and myself are members of our local gym and go up there at least 3 times a week plus other exercising too so I do go through quite a few pairs of trainers. I rarely wear my trainers other than the gym but I still like to have ones that look nice. I have a soft spot for Skechers because I bought a pair with my first months pay-packet when I was 15, I'm pleased they don't cost a whole months pay now! Skechers started selling shoes back in 1992.
I saw these on Amazon for around £40.00 delivered and although still quite expensive I knew I would get my moneys worth from them. They are the Skechers Ladies Biker Trainers with butterflies. Mine are slightly different to the ones Dooyoo are showing, they are pale grey and pink.
The trainers are made from leather and mesh uppers and one of the things I like about them is the fact there are no laces. These have been replaced with elastic so you simple pull the trainers on and off with the aid of 2 little mesh tags, one on the heel and one on the front which has Skechers written on it. They give the modern look of having your laces tucked in but without the risk of losing your trainers when you move!.
The main body of the trainer is pale grey and the mesh is pink. The trainers are decorated with 3 embroidered butterflies down the outside of the foot. They are done in pink and grey, they also have swirly patterns around them in the same colours. These give the trainers a real girly feminine feel. They are really pretty. There is also an S on the side of the trainers. All the stitching is done in pink.
They have stripes of grey mesh material up the front of them, 5 each side, that the elastic lace threads through. On one of these Skechers have hung a little heart charm which is really the only thing I don't like about them. This is easily removed though.
The inners of the biker trainers are very comfortable, they are padded which is a real bonus when I go up the gym. The sole has a nice grip without being too big and bulky. I like the way they are cut away slightly at the ankle, I have had trainers that are too high round the ankle and rub.
I've been wearing my skechers trainers for some time now and can honestly say they have been totally comfortable from day 1. They never slip when I'm exercising which is important. I have never thrown these in the washing machine I always clean mine with a damp sponge and they come up as good as new.
I can wear these with or without socks and they are fine although I do tend to wear socks more of than not to help prevent them getting sweaty and smelly. Although most of the time I keep trainers just for exercising these would look nice if you wore them with casual clothes.
They come in several colour choices. Grey/pink, Pink/white, Purple and blue and white.
I love these Skechers Trainers, they are very comfortable, have never rubbed and look very girly. Although they are a bit on the expensive side I would recommend them, either as a trainer for exercise or for casual wear.
Summary: I would recommend them
