Reliable multisurface traction

The foam midsole of the Skechers Flex Elite - Hartnell doubles as its outsole. The bottom portion of the foam is made denser for durability. It is also meant to ensure traction on a variety of surfaces.

Horizontal flex grooves line the entire length of the outsole. They make the platform flexible to accommodate the natural bending of the foot during walking sessions.

Absorbing the shock

The trainer receives its name from the Elite Flex midsole that is used in it. This full-length compound is engineered to deliver a responsive ride while being lightweight and flexible. It also protects the foot from shock by absorbing it upon impact.

The Air Cooled Memory foam insert is added for extra cushioning. It not only contributes to the comfort but also breathes air into the foot chamber to keep it ventilated and free of odor.

Sock-like fit

This walking shoe from Skechers employs the proprietary Skech Knit Mesh in its upper. Made as a nearly one-piece fabric unit, it aims to hug the foot in a sock-like manner. The elastic fabric at the collar even resembles the cuff of a sock. The upper is meant to be supportive yet stretchy to accommodate splaying and wiggling of the toes as well as other foot movements.
