  • Built with movement in mind, the Propet One LT features a precision knit mesh upper. This fabric is soft and lightweight which promotes foot mobility.
  • The ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam provides impact protection. On top of it, the removable double insoles not only enhance comfort but also aid in fit customization. As for the underside, it is protected by a layer of rubber which also delivers traction.

A training shoe made for men and women, the Propet One LT is available in US sizes 7 to 16 and 5 to 13, respectively, including half and full sizes in between. Wide workout shoes may not be easy to come by, but this model comes in 3E - X-Wide and 5E - X-Wide for men and D - Wide, 2E - X-Wide, and 4E - X-Wide for women, along with Medium for both. Women with slender feet can get this footgear in 2A - Narrow.

The underside of the Propet One LT employs a segmented rubber outsole. The material is sturdy, capable of withstanding training or walking on abrasive surfaces. The segmented layout promotes flexibility and provides traction on multiple surfaces.

The primary midsole of the Propet One LT is crafted from the EVA foam. This lightweight cushioning platform is designed to cushion impact and provide underfoot support.

Inside the trainer are two insoles wherein one or both can be removed for precision fit or to accommodate the use of custom orthotics. The bottom insole is made of memory foam that provides extra underfoot cushioning. The OrthoLite insole makes up the top layer which has an open-cell construction for aeration and covered with an antimicrobial fabric that deters bad odors.

The top of the Propet One LT employs precision knit mesh. This seamless fabric ensures that there are no seams that could irritate the foot and it is also breathable to keep the interior fresh during workouts. Synthetic overlays are placed on the toe box, quarters, eyestay, and the heel. They protect the underlying material against abrasion and also maintain the structure of the upper.

The inside is lightly padded to keep the fit snug, especially at the heel to prevent accidental shoe removal while exercising. The smooth fabric lining makes it easy for the foot to slide in and out of the shoe.

A traditional lacing system is found at the midfoot. It helps users customize the fit and lock the foot down.

The Propet One LT is marketed as footwear made for diabetics. It bears the A5500 code which means that if you have severe diabetes, the cost of the trainer can be reimbursed.
