Updates to Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0 - High Energy

  • The Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0 - High Energy is a revamped version of its predecessor. This time around, the new iteration has a knit jersey upper, compared to the previous heathered knit. It is loosely knitted on the toe box to allow for more ventilation, while the high-wear areas have been reinforced for added durability.
  • It employs an air-cooled Memory foam insole for a cushioned underfoot experience. It also provides an additional bounce to the foot upon take-off.
  • Like the original Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0, this model is equipped with the FlexSole midsole. It is a lightweight material that has shock-absorbing and responsive properties.
  • The rubber outsole has been articulated for additional flexibility. It also offers optimal traction for a wide variety of surfaces.

Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0 - High Energy size and fit

The Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0 - High Energy is a training shoe that was engineered to accommodate the feet and the biomechanics of women. The trainer’s US sizes range from 5 to 11 with half sizes available. The footwear follows the standard sizing scheme. It only has one width option, which is the B - Medium.

Outsole

A rubber compound lines the base of the Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0 - High Energy. It aims to deliver traction on different types of surfaces. It has an articulated design to facilitate natural foot flexion.

Midsole

The Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0 - High Energy sports the lightweight Flexsole 2.0-powered sole unit for added cushioning. It also protects the foot against impact.

The air-cooled Memory Foam cradles the foot for a breathable and comfortable underfoot experience. It molds to the shape of the foot for an even coverage of cushioning.

Upper

The soft flat knit jersey fabric of the Skechers Flex Appeal 2.0 - High Energy provides comfort and ventilation. The almost seamless material has minimal stitching to prevent weighing down the shoe. 

The interiors are covered with a soft fabric. It wicks away moisture from the skin while giving a smooth sensation.

The collar and tongue are padded for a snug fit. They also prevent irritation from the constant rubbing of the fabric and the shoelaces against the skin.

A heel tab is attached at the top of the collar. It makes putting on and taking off the footwear easier.

A traditional lacing system locks the foot down securely. It also reinforces the sides when the shoelaces are pulled taut, creating sidewalls that enhance lateral support.
