Skechers Flex Appeal 4.0 is soft, comfy 

Skechers Flex Appeal kicks, already on their 4th edition, are among the cushioned kicks you can grab from this California-based lifestyle label. Compared to its predecessors, which are more appropriate for indoor training, aerobic classes, demanding work shifts, the Flex appeal 4.0 are more for those days when you have a laidback schedule. If the Flex Appeal 3.0 lets you achieve your daily 10,000-step goal, this pair is more for a typical day-to-day grind. 

Why it’s worth adding to your rotation

  • Its heathered jersey and athletic mesh cover feel supple and soft. It’s close to wearing slippers on your feet.  
  • Even if it isn’t the right option during cold and rainy days, this shoe keeps the foot breathing under hot weather. 
  • The outsole may not be as grippy and abrasion-resistant as the well-engineered rubber pods on the previous version, but its grooves offer super flexibility. 
  • Not entirely fitted for serious walking, but its memory foam unit offers a pillowy sensation when moving around.
