Updates to Skechers Flex Appeal 3.0 - Finest Hour

  • The Skechers Flex Appeal 3.0 - Finest Hour is an update to the brand’s highly-rated Flex Appeal models. The shoe employs a slip-on construction with the crisscrossing elastic straps. It also adds a stylish touch to the upper unit with the help of a sparkle finish.
  • The third iteration of the Flex Appeal features a new sole design. At the bottom, it uses geometrical pods of various sizes which are placed in a twist-like pattern. It allows for even greater pliability of the platform.

Skechers Flex Appeal 3.0 - Finest Hour size and fit

The Skechers Flex Appeal 3.0 - Finest Hour comes in an array of US sizes from 5 to 11, with half sizes available in between. In terms of width, the shoe is offered in a standard B - Medium width. The straps ensure that the foot is kept securely inside.

Outsole

A single, full-length foam compound incorporates both the midsole and the outsole units in the Flex Appeal 3.0 - Finest Hour. The bottom of the sole is comprised of multiple pods. They have various shapes and sizes and are positioned in a way which mimics a twist. Such design enhances the flexibility of the platform. The pods also have some texture to them which ensures traction on both indoor and outdoor surfaces.

Midsole

The foam compound also functions as a shock-absorbing midsole. It protects the feet and lower extremities during high-impact workouts.

Completing the cushioning function is the Air-Cooled Memory Foam insert. Not only is it meant to add padding but also helps in keeping the interiors fresh and free of moisture.

Upper

The Skechers Flex Appeal 3.0 - Finest Hour sports a slip-on construction. A combination of the stretchy collar, the rear pull tab, and the high front panel assists the wearer when the footwear is put on and removed.

Heathered mesh is used in the forefoot and the side panels of the trainer. It renders breathability and a more relaxed fit where they are most needed. The mesh also has a sparkle finish for added style.

This Skechers walking trainer makes use of smooth 3D printed synthetic overlays to reinforce the heel, the sides, and the toe box. They add structure to the upper as well as shielding it against abrasion.

The crisscrossing elastic straps are used to keep the foot in place. They brace the instep without hampering it and expand to accommodate the on-and-off action.

A soft fabric lining is used on the interior walls of the footwear. It keeps the skin free from irritation and chafing.
