Facts

Rankings

A popular pick
  • The Skechers Dynamight is designed as an all-around training shoe. It features a cleatie-like design that uses a one-piece, soft knit upper. Bungee laces provide a snug fit in the midfoot area. They also make the trainer hassle-free to wear.
  • A Memory Foam insole delivers a comfortable footbed. The full-length midsole is soft but durable as it also doubles as the outsole.

The Skechers Dynamight is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. The footwear comes in D - Medium and 2E/3E - Wide, and B - Medium and 2E - Extra Wide, for the male and female versions, respectively. Because the shoe has a soft knit mesh upper that stretches, consumers are advised to try it in person to obtain an agreeable fit.

The Dynamight does not have a dedicated outsole as it is a part of the full-length midsole. It extends to the front of the shoe and serves as protection against impact and abrasion.

It features shallow flex grooves that aid flexibility, while the tread pattern allows for traction on most surfaces.

A Memory Foam insole cradles the foot. It contours to the shape of the sole to deliver a comfortable ride, even when used for extended periods. The material is lightweight, flexible and durable.

A full-length foam unit it used to serve as both the outsole and the midsole of the Dynamight. It is capable of protecting the foot from shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle. It doesn’t have a substantial weight, as well.

This Skechers trainer has a cleatie-like construction and bungee laces for quick and easy access and removal.

A soft knit mesh makes up the upper unit. This fabric is stretchy and breathable to keep the inside of the unit ventilated. The woven-in design depends on whether the shoe is intended for men or women. The women’s version has a diamond pattern while the men’s version features a zigzag grid design. The woven-in decoration does not affect the performance of the footwear.

The tongue and collar utilize a smooth, stretchy mesh. It ensures that the opening can accommodate the foot as it goes in or out. The fabric also provides a comfortable barrier between the instep and the bungee laces. A smooth 3D printed overlay panel on top of the tongue structure prevents it from overly stretching and adds stability to the upper. The material of the collar also fends off chafing of the ankles.

Lining the inside is a soft fabric that delivers a cozy in-shoe feel. It also allows the foot to slide effortlessly in or out of the shoe.
