Who should buy the Skechers Haniger

With cross-training in mind, Skechers conceived the Haniger to provide the athletic community a training companion that offers comfort and sufficient protection to its wearers. When purchasing, the smooth leather upper should be considered as it does not offer any stretch, possibly causing the fit to be too snug. Consumers are advised to try the shoe in person to acquire an agreeable fit. It is a solid choice if:

  • You work out in various environments and would want a shoe that has reliable traction on different surfaces.
  • You have been sustaining some chafings lately and would like to have a pair that prevents such discomfort.

The Skechers Haniger's lacing system

It employs a traditional lacing system with round laces to secure the foot inside the shoe. The top two eyelets have been reinforced with thermoplastic polyurethane to prevent the holes from stretching too much or tearing when tightening the laces. The padded tongue keeps the instep comfortable.
