- The Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - The Happs banks on the success of its predecessor. It uses the same Dual-Lite midsole that delivers a combination of a stable platform and a shock-absorbing cushion. The midsole for both models serves as the outsole.
- The striking difference between the two models is the design of the upper. The Flex Advantage 2.0 - The Happs features an almost seamless one-piece Skech-Knit Mesh, while the older version used woven mesh fabric with synthetic overlays to provide support.
The Flex Advantage 2.0 - The Happs is only available in men’s sizes and typically runs true to size. The shoe comes in D - Medium and 2E - Wide options. Soft woven material with stretchy properties makes up the upper unit.
The Flex Advantage 2.0 - The Happs features the FlexSole, a lightweight, durable and flexible exposed midsole. It extends to the front to protect the area from abrasion and impact during workouts. It has flex grooves in its entire length to facilitate multidirectional movements and foot flexion.
It has rubber pods on the big toe area and the outer side of the heel. This material is high-wearing and flexible. It also delivers traction on most surfaces.
The Dual-Lite technology makes up the midsole of the Flex-Advantage 2.0 - The Happs. This platform has soft and firm sections to deliver shock-absorption and stability at the same time.
The FlexSole serves as another layer of protection and padding. It is designed to be lightweight, flexible, and durable as it also acts as an outsole.
The shoe employs the Air Cooled Memory Foam for its insole. This inner sole component not only delivers a comfortable footbed by attenuating shock, but it also ensures that the foot does not get hot because it employs breathable materials.
The Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0 - The Happs utilizes the Skech-Knit Mesh, a type of woven material constructed as a one-piece fabric, for its upper. It has knit mesh and stitching accents in its side panels to add support to the top section. If a sock-like upper is desired, the Skechers Elite Flex - Hartnell may fit the bill.
A traditional lace-up closure is used to keep the foot securely inside the shoe. The eyelets have been embroidered to prevent the holes from getting too big or tearing.
The lightly padded tongue protects the instep from becoming irritated when the laces are tightened. It uses the same knitted mesh fabric for breathability.
The slightly plush collar prevents chafing of the ankle. It also serves as a support structure and keeps the back of the shoe locked in place.
Lining the inside is a soft fabric that delivers an excellent in-shoe feel. It prevents skin irritation due to friction. The soft cloth makes it easy for the foot to slide in and out of the footwear.
