The synthetic overlays are strategically placed throughout the uppers of these shoes to help give you a little bit of extra support and to increase the durability without adding too much weight to them.
They have a low-back mule design with a padded collar which makes them easy to just slip-on and go. There are some bungee lace accents adorning the front of the shoe to help give it a more aesthetically pleasing look. Coming in either black or white, there are not many colors to choose from, but customers seem to be completely satisfied with what they have to choose from.
These slippers also feature an Air-Cooled Memory Foam cushioning footbed to give you exceptional comfort and an amazing underfoot feel which is ideal for those who are going to be on their feet all day. Not only is this going to help keep your comfy, but the Memory Foam will also assist in preventing your feet from overheating while you are on the go, especially if you are out and about on warmer days.
A soft and smooth fabric lining finishes up the inside of these mules, giving your feet a more pleasant feel while you are wearing them, especially if you choose to go without socks. You will not have to worry about your feet rubbing and becoming irritated inside of these shoes, as the lining is going to help prevent that.
The soft fabric lining helps increase the comfort level of them drastically. For those who might choose to go without socks while wearing these will be thankful for the addition of this lining. It is going to help give your feet a pleasant in-shoe experience and help prevent any irritation that might occur from your feet rubbing inside the mules. No need to worry about getting nasty blisters or disgusting sores.
The sticky rubber compound mixed with the deeply grooved tread pattern is going to ensure that you are able to stay on your feet while you are on the go. You should not have to worry about slipping and falling because your shoes slipped out from underneath you, causing to fall and potentially hurt yourself or someone else. As long as you stick to flat and relatively non-abrasive surfaces, and do not wander off into the woods or up a mountain with these slippers then you should have no problems staying on your feet.
Most of the flexibility comes from the rubber outsole. It is tough enough to withstand you walking around and being on your feet all day, but it is also soft enough that you can easily bend and twist it without any problems. This means that when you are walking the shoes are going to allow your feet to move as naturally and freely as possible, moving with your feet. There is no need to feel like your feet are locked inside a prison while you are wearing shoes.
The rubber outsole and Memory Foam insole are both designed to be able to withstand you beating them into the ground repeatedly with each step you take, ensuring that they have a pretty decent lifespan. Additionally, the uppers might be made out of mesh materials, but they have some synthetic overlays donning them in high wear areas which greatly increases the durability, ensuring they are not going to rip and tear.
Since they are slip-on and do not have any kind of lacing closure and an open back there is no real way to ensure that your feet stay locked in place to keep your feet from falling out of your shoes while you are walking. If you do get the correct fit, however, the uppers are going to be just tight enough and snug around your foot that you should not have any problems.
As for arch support, there seems to be a decent amount thanks to the Memory Foam insole. The foam will mold and conform to your specific foot, giving a customizable and personal fit and feel that will give you all the support you need in all of the right places.
There does not seem to be any information from other customers on how these shoes are running when it comes to sizes so we can assume that they are pretty true to size. If you are unsure as to what size to order or you just want to make sure that you are getting the correct one, you can always consult a sizing chart. It is better to make sure and get the correct size the first time than to receive an ill-fitting pair and have to return them.
In the case of the Skechers Gratis-Sweet Kind mules, they are pretty average. They do not need to be weightless because you are most likely not going to be running any races in them. At the same time, you do not need all those extra bells and whistles you might find in work boots or fashion sneakers. There is, unfortunately, not exact information on the weight of these shoes but customers can agree that they are relatively lightweight.
