Who should buy the Skechers Satisfaction - Flash Point

- Your fitness routine involves workouts that require multidirectional as well as dynamic movements.
The Skechers Satisfaction - Flash Point's sole unit
As often seen in Skechers shoes, the midsole of the Satisfaction - Flash Point also serves as its outsole. It is hard-wearing, so it does not get easily shredded when training or walking on pavements.
The underside is adorned with a tread pattern that supports multi-directional movements. They also enhance the traction offered by the outsole.
A soft foam cushioning makes up the midsole of the Skechers Satisfaction - Flash Point. This compound absorbs shock and prevents the foot and the joints of the lower extremities from getting injured. It also provides steadiness during exercise.
Inside the shoe is the Memory Foam insole. This component conforms to the shape of the underfoot, delivering maximum support and coverage.
The Skechers Satisfaction - Flash Point employs mesh, synthetic, and leather materials for its upper. Two types of mesh appear on the upper: an open mesh that promotes breathability appears on the forefoot, and a closed type that supports the foot is used on the quarters. The inside of the trainer is covered with soft fabric that prevents seams from causing any discomfort.
Reinforced high-friction areas
Synthetic overlays reinforce the high-friction areas such as the toe box and the eyestay. They form panels at the forefoot and quarter that get drawn closer to the foot, enhancing support when the laces are cinched. At the back, a leather overlay forms an external heel counter that holds the rearfoot steady during dynamic movements.
Snug lacing system
The trainer employs a traditional lace-up closure that allows fit adjustment. The padded tongue has a single slot where the lace passes through, preventing it from sliding to the sides. The tongue keeps the instep comfortable and free from irritation from the laces.
At the back, the plush collar holds the foot down, preventing accidental shoe removal while training. The soft lining provides comfort and prevents chafing.
