Today I'm giving a big thumbs-up to Skechers Empire Inside Look Slip-On Sneaker.

LOVE THESE SHOES SO MUCH. I needed a new pair of sneakers, and I saw these, which are very different from any sneakers I've had previously, but I thought the extra ventilation might help with my strategy to prevent overheating.

Not only do they indeed help keep mah feets cool, but they are soooooo comfortable. I would order these again in a hot second.

They're definitely not a shoe for rainy or snowy weather, but I don't generally take long outdoor walks in that weather. (And I've got comfy walking boots for when I do.) I was looking for something for nice weather outdoor walks and treadmill walking: I've tried these shoes for both, and they were terrific. Because it's a stretch fabric, I didn't even have to worry about heel blisters while breaking them in. Nice.

Anyway! Give us your thumbs-up or thumbs-down in comments!
