I've heard that the Skechers are priced too low for running stores to make enough money on. The mark up on running shoes is usually around 100%.
Say they buy Skechers for $40 and sell them for $80 they only make $40.
They buy Nikes for $65 and sell for $130 they make $65.

That's a crap reason. Sell more shoes! You could get 2 pairs of Skechers for the price of one pair of Hokas. The logic of some people is beyond me.
Hey Skechers fan... I had the owner of a Specialty Running store tell me this was the reason he didn't carry them.
So, the store owner would have to sell two pairs of Skechers to make the same amount of money he would make by selling one pair of Hokas.
It's your logic that is flawed.
The store owner is considering it from his point of view, you from the buyers.
(PS: I always thought that Skechers only wanted to sell their performance running shoes in their own stores.)
