- The Propet TravelWalker II is a women’s walking shoe designed with breathability and movement in mind. The upper is made of mesh which helps in ventilating the foot chamber. It employs a lacing structure with a quick-release toggle for an easy on-and-off action.
- As for shock absorption, a full-length ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam works as both the trainer’s midsole and outsole. For added comfort, a DriStep bamboo charcoal insole, which also helps control odor, is found inside the footwear.
The Propet TravelWalker II is obtainable in women’s US sizes 5 to 12. It can accommodate slender feet because it comes in 2A - Narrow and B - Medium width profiles, but if wide walking shoes are needed, this model is also available in D - Wide and 2E - X-Wide.
A full-length EVA foam serves as the outsole of the Propet TravelWalker II. This compound is constructed to be lightweight, flexible, and durable to withstand walking on concrete. Hardwearing areas, like the heel and under the ball, are lined with a layer of rubber which also enhances traction.
The outsole of the Propet TravelWalker II also functions as its midsole. This component attenuates shock to keep the foot comfortable.
Inside the trainer is a removable DriStep bamboo charcoal insole. Not only does it enhance underfoot cushioning but it also prevents the development of foul odor.
A mesh upper keeps a user’s foot fresh when wearing the Propet TravelWalker II. This material is also soft which allows the foot to expand naturally and move freely.
An abrasion-resistant protective strip is found on the toe box. This element protects the toe against bumps and the underlying fabric from getting snagged on rough surfaces.
The TravelWalker II employs a bungee cord with a toggle for fit adjustment and a stopper so that the laces can be securely tucked in. This mechanism allows for quick on-and-off action while the stretchy nature of the cord makes for a more customized fit. Both collar and tongue are lightly padded which helps the shoe stay securely in place as well as avoiding chafing or blistering.
