Updates to Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - Missing Link

  • The Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - Missing Link is designed for men looking for a lightweight and flexible training shoe. The upper is made of Skech-Knit Mesh which is pliable and promotes movement. It is also breathable to keep the inside aerated.
  • Like its predecessor, the Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0, it uses the same sole technologies. The main midsole, which also serves as the outsole, is made of the FlexSole. It is a lightweight and flexible foam material that absorbs shock to keep the foot comfortable. A layer of the Dual-Lite increases the shock absorption property of the midsole and also holds the foot steady during workouts. Inside is the Air Cooled Memory foam that provides maximum foot coverage and ventilation.

Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - Missing Link size and fit

Made only in men’s sizes, the Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - Missing link is available in US sizes 6.5 to 14. As for the width, it comes in D - Medium and 2E/3E - Wide profiles. The lace-up closure enhances the snugness of the upper, while the knit material accommodates the natural expansion of the foot throughout the day.

Outsole

The midsole of the Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - Missing Link doubles as its outsole. It is crafted to be hard-wearing to endure the abrasions of working out on concrete surfaces. Flex grooves adorn the full length of the underside. These furrows facilitate flexibility in different directions.

Rubber pods are used in the high-friction areas such as the toes and the heel. This compound is made to be durable and enhances traction on various types of surfaces.

Midsole

The Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - Missing Link employs the FlexSole midsole. This foam cushioning is engineered to be lightweight and flexible to keep the wearer moving. It is also intended to decrease shock felt by the foot and the joints in the lower extremities.

On top of it is the Dual-Lite cushioning. It uses two types of foam densities that aim to steady the foot and amplify the shock absorption property of the primary midsole.

Inside the shoe is the Air Cooled Memory Foam insole. This component conforms to the shape of the underfoot to deliver maximum coverage and support. It keeps the foot comfortable and ensures proper air circulation to maintain a comfortable interior temperature.

Upper

The Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - Missing Link utilizes a one-piece Skech-Knit Mesh fabric. This proprietary material is designed to be breathable to keep the foot chamber properly ventilated. It has stitching accents as well as woven in stability knit mesh panels that enhance lateral support of the upper. A soft fabric lines the inside of the upper to deliver a great in-shoe feel.

The trainer uses a traditional lacing system to keep the foot securely locked down. The eyelets have been embroidered to prevent early deterioration of the holes attributed to the pulling of the laces.

Both the tongue and the collar are padded to keep the foot comfortable at all times. The collar also locks the heel down and prevent chafing in the ankle area.
