  • Designed for women, the Propet TravelActiv Slip-on is an easy-to-wear, comfortable walking shoe. It features lightweight materials like the nylon mesh upper which offers movement and breathability.
  • The TravelTek ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam acts as both the outsole and midsole of this trainer. This low-profile construction allows it to deliver uncompromised shock absorption. The underside also features a tread pattern that provides traction on most surfaces.

A single unit of EVA foam serves as the outsole and midsole of the Propet TravelActiv Slip-on. The TravelTek EVA outsole is crafted to be durable and withstand abrasion from walking on rough surfaces. It is also lightweight and sports a low-profile construction to afford flexibility and allow the foot to move naturally. The diamond and wavy tread patterns provide multi-directional grip on ground surfaces.

Aside from the TravelTek EVA foam, a removable cushioned EVA insole also provides shock attenuation to the Propet TravelActiv Slip-on. This element is soft to provide comfort and can easily be replaced with custom orthotics if the need arises.

An engineered nylon mesh provides a protective foot cover to the Propet TravelActiv Slip-on. This material is soft to facilitate movement and breathable to keep the foot chamber cool. Inside, the interior is also lined with nylon mesh to deliver a smooth in-shoe experience. A polyurethane (PU) overlay is used to protect the toe box from abrasion. The same material creates an external heel counter at the back to keep the rearfoot locked in place, preventing accidental shoe removal while walking.

There are no laces or straps on this shoe, but there is a stretchy gore at the instep. This component not only makes it easy for the foot to slip in or out, but it also keeps the fit snug.
