- Looking for a stylish pair of walking shoes? Check out the Onalee from Propet. This Mary Jane-inspired trainer utilizes a stretchy upper fabric that promotes mobility and expansion of the foot, not to mention that it’s breathable.
- Protecting the foot against impact is the TravelTek EVA sole unit. This full-length platform serves as both the outsole and the midsole, but there are two layers of removable insoles inside the footwear that enhance comfort and support.
The Propet Onalee caters to the needs and unique dimensions of women’s feet. It comes in US sizes 5 to 11, including half and full sizes in between. As for the width, it is available in 2A - Narrow and B - Medium, and for women looking for wide walking shoes, it is obtainable in D - Wide, 2E - X-Wide and 4E - X-Wide as well. The stretchy upper accommodates natural foot expansion and foot issues.
The Propet Onalee features a full-length TravelTek EVA outsole. This compound is crafted to be lightweight yet durable to withstand walking on abrasive surfaces like concrete. The aggressive tread pattern ensures multi-directional flexibility and traction.
The outsole of the Propet Onalee also serves as the midsole. For added comfort, there are two insoles inside that can be removed for customized fit and comfort. The bottom insole is made of memory foam for enhanced underfoot cushioning. The top insole is the OrthoLite foam with an open-cell construction for aeration and is lined with an antimicrobial cloth that prevents odor formation.
The Propet Onalee employs a stretchy upper. It is crafted using stretchable PU or jersey fabric that allows it to mold to the foot but still accommodate foot issues such as hammertoes or corns. The material is also breathable, keeping the foot fresh throughout the day, and the mesh interior lining also helps with the ventilation. Synthetic overlays are present in various portions of the top to keep the structure and protect the underlying material.
The Mary Jane style comes with an adjustable hook-and-loop strap. This closure makes for quick on-and-off action and fit adjustment. Stretchy fabric makes up the middle portion of the strap and the collar which allow users to slip on or slip off the shoe without adjusting the strap.
People with severe diabetes would be delighted to know that the Propet Onalee bears the A5500 code. This mark signifies that the shoe is up for reimbursement for those who are eligible under the Therapeutic Shoe Bill.
