Skechers Skech-Air Extreme size and fit

The Skechers Skech-Air Extreme is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. It typically runs true to size. The width options are D - Medium and B - Medium for men and women, respectively. The knit upper is stretchy which allows it to accommodate broad feet. Another model to consider for those looking for a wide training shoe is the Skechers Flex Advantage 3.0 - Stally.

Outsole

The Skech-Air Extreme uses two types of outsole materials. The first is made from rubber and is found in the heel and toe areas. This compound is made to be durable and flexible. It is also filled with tread patterns that provide traction. It extends towards the front of the shoe to protect the toe area against abrasion and impact.

Midsole

The full-length midsole of the Skech-Air Extreme is designed to be lightweight, durable and able to reduce the shock.

At the heel section is a transparent rubber chamber that contains columns and pressurized air. When pressure is applied, the columns contract while the pressurized air absorbs the impact, allowing the heel cushion to recover quickly and be ready for the next landing.

The shoe also features an Air Cooled Memory Foam insole. This lightweight footbed conforms to the contours of the soles of the foot and provides shock absorption. It is also breathable, so it prevents the inside of the shoe from getting too warm.

Upper

The Skechers Skech-Air Extreme utilizes a one-piece, flat knit mesh. The fabric uses two weaving styles that have different functions. The midfoot portion uses the breathable and stretchable pattern, while striped design provides support in the lateral and medial areas.

A traditional lace-up closure keeps the foot locked down in place while also serving as a means to adjust the fit of the upper.

The lightly padded tongue protects the instep from friction when the user tightens the laces. It also keeps the top of the foot comfortable by preventing the laces from digging into the skin.

The slightly plush collar keeps the ankle supported and prevents it from chafing. It also secures the back of the foot, preventing it from accidentally slipping out while in motion.

Lining the interior is a smooth fabric that delivers a comfortable in-shoe feel. It also allows the foot to glide effortlessly in and out of the shoe.
