Updates to Skechers Elite Flex - Westerfield

  • The Skechers Elite Flex - Westerfield was created for men whose lifestyles involve a lot of walking and exercising. The shoe inherits the slip-on style of the original Skechers Elite Flex trainer to unburden the wearer of the need to lace up the footwear.
  • The upper is made of the Skech Knit Mesh Fabric which wraps the foot in a snug and supportive way. Thick bungee laces are placed on the instep to keep the fit securely.
  • The Elite Flex midsole is made of a responsive EVA foam. It renders cushioning and shock absorption throughout a workout or a walking session. This type of cushioning is also present on other models like the Skechers Elite Flex - Hartnell.

Skechers Elite Flex - Westerfield size and fit

The Skechers Elite Flex - Westerfield comes in men’s sizes only, ranging from US 6.5 to 14. The shoe caters to an average-sized foot as it is available in a D - Medium width profile.

Outsole

The outsole and the midsole of the Elite Flex - Westerfield are part of one single foam unit, the Elite Flex. It is only made denser at the bottom part for enhanced resistance to abrasion. The articulated design of the foam unit allows for natural flexibility and versatility of movement.

Midsole

The Elite Flex unit is also responsible for cushioning and impact attenuation. It accommodates extended periods of walking as well as more high-impact cross-training activities.

The Air Cooled Memory Foam insole is placed in addition to the main cushioning. It offers extra padding and helps in keeping the foot environment free of heat and odor.

Upper

The Skechers Elite Flex - Westerfield sports a nearly one-piece fabric upper unit. It utilizes the proprietary Skech Knit Mesh, which is a soft woven fabric that hugs the foot in a sock-like manner. This material is also designed to be breathable and flexible.

The 3D-printed synthetic panels are placed at the bottom of the lateral and medial sides of the upper. They make sure that the foot receives support during side-to-side movements.

This pair of Skechers workouts shoes makes use of a slip-on construction to help the wearer slide in and out of the footwear quickly and smoothly. The high apex and the pull tabs at the front and the back of the collar assist in this process.

Resistant bungee laces are added on top of the instep. They hold the foot securely in place when it is inside the shoe but stretch easily when the trainer is put on or removed.
