I had a pair of classic black Skechers shows for about six years. They were still functional, but were starting to get bad for my feet to walk in. I went looking for that same shoe, but Skechers didn't make them anymore. I decided to try the newer model of this classic shoe. Overall I am happy, but I do miss my old shoes.
These Stone Premium Classic Skechers are very durable. The sole and outside material are a combination of rubber and some kind of synthetic suede. They are very easy to clean and I did not have to treat the material before I wore them. Over the last year of use, they still look brand new.
The comfort of the inside of the shoe is great. I can walk all day at work and the bottoms of my feet don't hurt much at all. The shoes are somewhat heavy, so they might get annoying if you wear them all day everyday. They are solid black, but they still do look like tennis shoes. They are not that good for dressing up with black pants, but they are good for a casual dress look.
