The Skechers Double Up - Shiny Dancer is a women’s exclusive silhouette that is available in sizes ranging from 5 to 11. Half sizes are available. Elastic fabric panels allow for easy slip on and off but keep the shoes secure on the feet. The measurement of these kicks is slightly larger than regular sizing so buying a pair a half size smaller may be considered. Men who would like to own these awesome sneakers may have to opt for one and a half size bigger than their usual size.

Dress these babies up any way you want it. The Skechers Double Up - Shiny Dancer sneakers are so versatile that you can wear them with shorts for walking at the beach or with formal dresses to dance at weddings. The choices are limitless and the rhinestone beads that sparkle so prettily when the light hits them just right make for interesting pieces that should be a staple in any wardrobe.

These pretty shoes are available in four colorways, namely, Black, Pewter, Rose Gold, and Silver. Black goes with anything, and the silver sneakers would look cute paired with a metallic slip dress. The pewter sneakers would look awesome when paired with a silver fitted skirt and a grey top while the rose gold kicks match well with a tulle skirt and fringe top.

Aside from their obvious beautiful looks and the platform soles that just add pizzazz to any outfit, the Skechers Double Up - Shiny Dancer sneakers are packed with all the comfort you could possibly want. Air Cooled Memory Foam insoles keep the feet happy even after several hours of dancing you may put it through.

The Skechers brand has come a long way from manufacturing skate and utility-style cleats since the company’s founding in 1992. Since then, they have diversified to include casual and athletic shoes in their collection and this foray into the lifestyle and performance markets was a resounding success.

One of their recent lifestyle offerings includes the Double Up which is a line under the Skechers Street collection. Skechers Street shoes are designed with an eye towards providing fashion-forward designs while providing advanced comfort technology (Rise Fit, Air Cooled Memory Foam, or Premium Memory Foam).

The Double Up line, meanwhile, focuses on trendy pieces that use ‘flatform soles’ and sparkly rhinestones. One such silhouette from this line is the Double Up - Shiny Dancer which are classically-styled shoes dressed up in metallic microfiber faux-suede uppers and covered in stunning rhinestone and bead details.

  • The ‘flatform’ soles of the Skechers Double Up - Shiny Dancer measure one and a half inches.
  • The rubber traction outsoles feature a star accent.
