Skechers is an award-winning global leader in the lifestyle footwear industry. They design, develop, and market lifestyle footwear that appeals to trend-savvy men, women, children, and individuals with conditions- like neuropathy. This company’s success is a result of its high quality, diversity, and budget-friendly product line that meets consumers’ various lifestyle needs.
This shoe features a smooth faux leather upper and mesh fabric that allows adequate breathability, which is vital in any foot, but especially in one with neuropathy. Skechers slip-on acknowledges the importance of proper air circulation on a healthy foot. And for this, they make sure that in addition to the upper mesh lining, this shoe has a lightly patterned mesh front and side panels for optimized cooling effect. In providing optimum comfort to users, this shoe guarantees maximum cushioning of foot’s pressure points- the balls of the foot. It also has a slip-on sporty comfort moc design- a dual side elastic fabric panels for a comfortable slip-on fit. In ensuring proper protection and support for ankle joints, the Skechers Performance Slip-on Sneaker possesses a stitched collar trim with excellent padding.
The construction features a soft fabric shoe lining, and a memory Foam full length cushioned comfort insole. Also, there is a shock-absorbing FlexSole midsole that absorbs the significant compressive loads from the heel strike. Instead of transferring the force from the floor into your feet, ankle, knees, and to your lower back, the shoes absorb this shock and transfers nothing. This reduces the occurrence of painful body joints and ensures that individuals with neuropathy do not aggravate their pains. The best shoes for neuropathy- apart from having features that make it comfortable, will also ensure not to put an unnecessary burden on a neuropathic foot. Therefore, such shoes, just like the Skechers Performance Slip-on sneaker, meet this criterion by being lightweight (6 1/2 oz. per shoe in a men’s size 9 with a heel height of 1 1/4 inch.)
The flexible traction outsole of the Skechers shoe provides adequate grip on slippery surfaces, thereby ensuring safety even in an unsafe environment. And the durability of this shoe is on another level. In fact, my 87years old dad, who has arthritis, always acknowledges the comfortable nature of this shoe whenever he puts it on. Mind you, getting positive reviews from my dad doesn’t happen often. So, this is one of the best shoes for neuropathy that I can duly recommend.
