- The Propet TravelLite is a walking shoe designed for women on the go. It is made of lightweight and durable materials such as the nylon upper with screen-printed overlays.
- The ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam serves as both the midsole and outsole though some areas of the underside are lined with rubber. EVA is both durable and flexible to withstand everyday wear-and-tear associated with walking on concrete floors.
The Propet TravelLite accommodates female foot dimensions and is available in US half and full sizes, from 5 to 12. For the width, almost all of the sizes come in different profiles, ranging from 2A - Narrow, B - Medium, D - Wide, 2E - Extra Wide, to 3E - Extra Wide. The lace-up closure affords users the ability to adjust the fit according to their preference.
The Propet TravelLite uses a single cushioning platform for the outsole and the midsole. For increased traction, hard-wearing areas such as the toe and the heel are lined with a layer of rubber. This material enhances durability and grip without adding weight to the trainer. It also features grooves throughout the underside to facilitate natural foot bending.
Keeping the foot protected against impact is the EVA foam midsole. This cushioning platform is engineered to be soft to attenuate shock but rigid enough to hold the foot steady. It sports a rocker shape that promotes a smooth heel-to-toe transition while walking and keeps the pressure off the toes while standing.
Inside is an insole covered with the DriStep lining. This bamboo charcoal insole wicks moisture away from the foot and prevents the formation of bad odor.
The primary material used on the upper of the Propet TravelLite is nylon. This textile is pliable to promote movement yet provides a durable covering to the foot. It has screen-printed overlays on the vamp and the quarters to add a stylish flair to the trainer. The interior is lined with a soft mesh which adds a comfortable experience to the wearer. The upper also keeps the foot chamber aerated.
Synthetic overlays cover the toe box to protect the underlying fabric against abrasion. At the back, the overlay forms an external counter that steadies the rearfoot during the walking gait cycle.
The traditional lacing system allows users to adjust the fit. The upper also features padded collar and tongue that ensure a locked-down fit.
