Skechers D'Lites - Play On Style

These kicks feature a rugged, athletic look that would be all business except for the subtle metallic accents on the lace rows which add a touch of bling. The trubuck leather uppers keep the shoes from being too casual and make them ideal for wearing in the workplace.

D’Lites - Play Ons sport a casual tone that’s not over the top, and which looks great for walking about town, hanging out with the friends, or doing errands with the kids. They’ll pair well with sweats, jeans, pants, leggings, and some casual skirts. 

Notable Features

One common thread in many reviews on the Play Ons is the shoes’ comfort, which is mainly due to the Skechers brand’s Air Cooled Memory Foam insoles. The footbeds feature a cooling effect aside from providing much needed cushioning and shock absorption that allows many to stay on their feet for hours at a time. 

Another notable feature is the fun addition to the shoes of the built-in heels which measure 1 ¼.” The extra height gives the legs a slimming look as well as giving shorter users an extra boost.

Skechers D'Lites - Play On History

The Skechers brand had an almost meteoric rise to success following its 1992 launch by CEO Robert Greenberg—also the founder of LA Gear. In just a few years since its founding, the brand had become a byword in households around the globe. Now, it’s one of the giants in the sneaker industry. 

From edgy street cleats which launched Skechers to fame, the brand expanded to clothing, accessories, lifestyle shoes, and work footwear. One of its most popular lifestyle divisions is its sneaker range, and out of that range comes the D’Lites collection.

The D’Lites line, which includes the D’Lites Play On, contains shoes that perfectly mix style and function. The sporty utilitarian engineering is usually counterbalanced by a subtle, and often surprising, accent that adds a bit of fun into the practical mix.
