Updates to Avia Avi-Skill

  • The Avia Avi-Skill is a man’s sporty walking trainer created for all-day wear. Be it running errands, helping out customers, or simply going for a walk, this shoe is meant to support you all throughout.
  • The footwear sports a sleek synthetic leather upper for sturdy support. A traditional lace-up closure is used to lock up the fit.
  • A compression-molded EVA (CMEVA) foam provides primary cushioning. The proprietary Cantilever technology along with a gel heel unit guard the heel against harmful impact.
  • The underside of the trainer makes use of durable rubber. It features an oil-and-slip resistant pattern for enhanced grip.

Avia Avi-Skill size and fit

The Avia Avi-Skill is available in men’s sizes only, ranging from US 7 to 13, including both full and half sizes. Widthwise, the shoe can be purchased in a standard D - Medium profile as well as in a 4E - Extra Wide width.

Outsole

The bottom of the Avi-Skill is lined with a durable rubber compound. It flaunts oil-and-slip resistant properties which keep the wearer steady even on wet and smooth surfaces.

Midsole

The shoe utilizes a CMEVA foam compound to create a lightweight and responsive platform. It incorporates the brand’s proprietary Cantilever technology to deliver consistent heel support. There is also a gel unit in the heel section which contributes to the foot protection by absorbing shock upon heel strike.

A molded MEMORYfōm Plus insole is placed inside the footwear. It provides extra comfort and padding directly under the foot.

Upper

The Avia Avi-Skill uses synthetic leather to create a firm foothold in the upper unit. The material is treated with the Defender from Scotchgard which keeps it safe from getting stained or wet.

Additional overlays wrap the toe box and the heel for increased abrasion-resistance. The embedded overlays on both lateral and medial sides are interconnected with the lacing system. They form a midfoot cage which keeps the foot firmly in place.

The interiors of the shoe are also designed to keep the wearer comfortable. A breathable textile lining keeps the foot chamber fresh while the padded tongue and collar keep the rearfoot supported and protected from chafing.
