When we talk about Skechers we instantly think of the memory foam cushioned footbed and their cool athletic design. The American shoe company, situated in Manhattan Beach, California was established by CEO Robert Greenberg and his son Michael in 1992. When the company started in 1983, they were best known for creating skate shoes and utility-style boots which then expanded into the making of athletic, casual and dress shoes for men, women, and children. One of their most durable, heavy-duty yet stylish boot ever made is the Skechers Sergeants Verdict for man.

The Verdict boots, once name Sergeants, are fashionable work boots made in Vietnam, and they feature smooth leather or oiled smooth suede upper. The boot comes with a rounded plain toe front, reinforced seams, and S logo detail. A cushioned collar and well-padded tongue are added to provide your feet with Skechers’ outstanding comfort feel. According to reviewers, they are the most comfortable boots you will ever own. The boot rests on rugged traction soles to help you maintain balance in your outdoor adventures, and the six hexagon metal eyelets give you lacing to your preference. They are one of the best boots to have if you require something that will grip onto wet surfaces. Be prepared for your feet to fall in love.
