Who should buy the Skechers D'Lites

One of Skechers' enduring lines is the D'Lites, which come in numerous renditions of style and construction. The semi-bulky image of the D'Lites projects a silhouette that highlights casual wear above all else. You will benefit from it if:

  • You prefer tank-like sneakers without dumbed-down comfort.
  • You highly appreciate shoes that promote proper posture and gait.
  • Appearing taller than usual is what you're after in sneakers.
  • Your feet need a bit more coziness in the fall or winter.

Who should not buy it

If less is more, particularly underfoot, is your thing, skip the D'Lites and opt for the Skechers Ultra Flex instead. Also, if you find yourself struggling with flat laces most days, you might be better off with the round-laced Nike React Vision.
