Who should buy the Skechers Arch Fit - Keep It Up

Consider this walking shoe from Skechers if you need a supportive shoe for various foot conditions: flat feet, overpronation, plantar fasciitis, or any other condition which requires solid cushioning and arch support.

Who should not buy this shoe

The knit upper felt a bit restricting to those with wide feet who need a larger shoe opening to slide in easily. If this is your case, check out the Arch Fit - Banlin (for men) and the Arch Fit Refine - Don't Go (for women).

Amazing comfort with plenty of support

This Skechers Arch Fit shoe has gained a good number of fans among people who spend a lot of time on their feet. Here are some of their comments:

  • “shoes I want to slip into every day”
  • “now my favorite walking shoes”
  • “comfort king”

This shoe has made life easier on the feet of people who walk many miles at work, on concrete floors in particular. It has also become a comfortable companion for those clocking up their 10000 steps a day. Some also consider it a must for bartenders, waitresses, and cooks.

Arch Fit takes the pressure off achy feet

A good portion of the positive feedback came from the people suffering from various foot and leg problems. These include:

  • heel spurs
  • arthritis
  • osteoporosis
  • hip pain
  • plantar fasciitis
  • neuropathy

The Arch Fit - Keep It Up managed to ease the pain and strain associated with these conditions, making the wearers happy they can enjoy walking again. “These shoes have saved my life!!,” says one of the satisfied buyers. Another one shares a similar sentiment: “comfortable walking for the first time in about 3 years.”

Sock-like comfort of the Keep It Up

The Stretch Fit slip-on style of the shoe appears to provide an excellent, form-fitting experience. There is little to no break-in period reported.

You also need not worry about the heel slipping out, which could be a problem for some slip-on shoes. The wearers say that the shoe is narrow in the back and hugs the heels very well to prevent slippage.

As for the on-and-off, the opinions are split here. About half of the reviewers say that it’s very easy to slide into, including a person with neuropathy. But on the other hand, some people did require a shoehorn to put it on or even found the tongue area so restrictive that they had to “maneuver [themselves] into it.”

Skechers Arch Fit - Keep It Up goes with any wardrobe

“Go with everything,” and “an everyday shoe with a classic style,” these are some of the ways in which people describe the visual aspect of the shoe. They also like the variety of colors to choose from. They are all monochromatic but are also easy to match with many outfits.

The fact that the Keep It Up is machine-washable is also a big plus for many.
