Shock-absorbent midsole

The Skechers Flex Advantage 2.0- The Happs' breathable footbed

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.

One-piece fabric upper

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.

Snug lacing system

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.

Anti-ankle chafing

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.
