As a fitness editor, I’m lucky enough to test sneakers for a living (it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it), so I know exactly what I’m looking for when it comes to a comfortable pair of shoes. I want them to fit well, to not rub or blister as I head out on a hike, or work out in the gym, and I want them to offer me the right level of support for my workout. One of the most popular brands on the market? Skechers.
Skechers shoes have a cult-like following thanks to the brand’s Arch-fit support, designed to be comfortable underfoot. I’ve walked 100 miles in these popular Skechers slip-on shoes, and was impressed with how well they supported my foot, even without any laces.
But if you’re looking to upgrade your sneakers, should you wait for Black Friday, or shop now? Luckily for Skechers fans, Amazon’s early Black Friday sale includes a number of the brand’s most popular models. Below, I’ve rounded up my top early deals worth shopping for today.
7 of the best early Black Friday Skechers deals
Skechers Go Walk 5 sneaker: was $60 now $36 @ Amazon
This simple slip-on shoe is great for day-to-day wear, or for traveling, as you won’t have to worry about undoing laces when going through security. One of our editors here at Tom’s Guide wore this shoe for miles around CES, and found it comfortable and supportive, plus at $39, you can’t go wrong. The men’s version is also discounted to $39 on Amazon here.
Skechers Consistent Sneaker: was $60 now $44 @ Amazon
I’ve walked 50 miles in these shoes and despite struggling with the sizing (they come up a little big) I found them to be extremely comfortable. The women’s shoe is discounted to $44 in this early Black Friday deal, although you’ll have to go through the different color options in your size to find the best deal. At the time of writing, there’s still plenty of sizes available, including half sizes.
