Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

Updates to Skechers Burst TR
- The Skechers Burst TR is a cross-trainer designed to cater to a broad audience with its sleek and clean look. The upper uses a combination of mesh and synthetic overlays to provide adequate support during lateral movements.
- The midsole is soft, durable and stable. It also has shock-absorbent properties to keep the foot relaxed during workouts.
- Rubber panels line the high-wear areas of the outsole. They are meant to provide traction and protection to the midsole.
- The shoe also employs elastic bands instead of traditional laces for a quick and easy on-and-off wear.
Skechers Burst TR size and fit
The Skechers Burst TR is offered in both men’s and women’s sizes. It follows standard measurements lengthwise. The available widths are D - Medium and B - Medium for men and women, respectively. Though the upper uses mesh, the synthetic overlays prevent it from overstretching. Thus, consumers are advised to test the unit in person to obtain an ideal fit.
The Skechers Burst TR employs colored rubber panels in the toe and heel sections. They are designed to be durable, flexible and grippy.
An exposed midsole doubles as an outsole. This material is durable and features a Burst Grip traction design that adapts to a variety of surfaces.
The Burst TR utilizes Burst Compound for its midsole. According to Skechers, this platform has remarkable energy return. It also attenuates the force of impact to prevent discomfort or injuries to the lower extremities. The material is lightweight, flexible and durable as it also partly serves as an outsole. Moreover, it has a textured finish for aesthetic purposes. It extends partially to the front of the trainer to protect the area from abrasion and impact during workouts.
It uses an Air Cooled Memory Foam insole which instantly contours to the shape of the underfoot. It is also breathable, so it allows air to maintain a cool and dry environment.
The Skechers Burst TR features a bootie-like construction with an attached tongue. A mesh fabric makes up the majority of the upper. It is breathable, so it keeps the foot-chamber well-ventilated.
Synthetic overlays reinforce high-wear areas to protect them against abrasion. It doubles as a supportive structure in the lateral and medial sides of the midfoot during side-to-side movements. It also acts as an external heel counter that anchors the heel.
A smooth synthetic textile makes up the tongue. It serves as a barrier between the instep and the elastic laces to keep the top of the foot from becoming irritated.
The lace-up closure utilizes elastic laces to keep the foot secure inside the unit. This lacing system makes it quick for users to put on or remove the shoe since there’s nothing to tie or untie.
Aside from supporting the ankle, the plush collar ensures that it does not get chafed as well. It also locks the back of the foot in place, preventing accidental removal of the footwear while in motion.
