I don’t live too far from the University, and this fall, I couldn’t help but notice the diversity of people taking classes this year. I was surprised to see a vast amount of baby boomers and seniors going back to get that degree or take a class they’ve always wanted to. Many of them walk to class or to distant parking lots, so having comfortable footwear would be essential.
As we age, our feet can develop arthritis, pains, flexibility issues, and muscle imbalances. Over time, our feet become wider and longer, and the natural padding under our heels and forefoot thins. Action-packed years can also produce flattened arches and stiff feet and ankles, our shoes need to meet the challenges and reflect the needs our feet require. Enter Skechers!

Although my mom is not going back to school, she loves to walk almost on a daily basis. Her biggest requirement is comfort and soft footing. She usually wears typical senior shoes that don’t allow her to enjoy long walks. I recently introduced my mom to Skechers, and I put her in a pair of Flex Appeal Memory Foam shoes to see if she noticed any difference.
My mom loves the soft and spongy feel of the lining and the memory foam insole. She appreciated how lightweight the shoes are, and the fabulous thick padding along the collar and tongue. Her feet did not get hot or sweaty because the free-flow mesh panels are designed to create a cooling effect on the tootsies. She was delighted there were no seams anywhere on the shoes to cause any irritation, friction burns or blisters. My mom has to wear support stockings which are a little thicker than the average sock, but there is still some wiggle room to allow for this. Her feet feel so comfortable and at peace in these shoes.
Skechers is just one of those brands that have our feet covered from childhood to our senior years. I personally love Skechers and now after many years, I have my mom hooked on them. It’s never too late to be good to your feet. They offer a wide variety of styles and colors for the whole family!
