The footwear company has since dominated the US and gained popularity worldwide. Developing unique cushioned insoles, Skechers now covers every activity from walking to golfing, or simply lounging at home. Each pair is complete with the chunky ‘S’ symbol as a sign of quality.

How To Care For Your Skechers Sneakers
Nylon and mesh Skechers sneakers can be washed in the washing machine at home. It’s recommended that you place your shoes in a washing bag before putting them in the machine to help protect the fabric and stop the laces becoming caught. Use a mild detergent and a delicate cycle, 30 or 40 degrees and leave to air dry away from heat sources. Shoes with Skechers Memory Foam insoles should be left to dry left for 10-12 hours before being worn again. You shouldn’t machine wash light-up Skechers.
Leather shoes can be cleaned with a lotion or spray like the Skechers Athletic Cleanser. This should be applied regularly to keep your sneakers supple. You shouldn’t wash leather shoes in the washing machine. To spot clean marks, use a damp cloth, luke-warm water and a mild detergent. Suede styles can be cleaned using a suede brush to gently work dirt away from affected areas. Light-up Skechers can also be cleaned using a damp cloth.
After cleaning, it’s recommended to use a formula like Skechers Water Proofer Spray on your sneakers to help keep them weatherproof. If your shoes need refreshing between washes, try the Skechers Odor Eliminator Spray to keep them fresh.
