Updates to Skechers Skyline - Silsher

  • Update your ensemble with the sporty, rugged look of the Skechers Skyline - Silsher. Its slip-on style makes it quick to put on or remove while the cage-like structure at the midfoot allows users to tighten the fit if needed.
  • The full-length midsole protects the foot against impact upon footstrike. Its lightweight and flexible nature facilitates a smooth heel-to-toe movement.
  •  A layer of gum rubber protects the underside of the midsole. This component not only strengthens the bottom but it also adds traction to the outsole.

Skechers Skyline - Silsher size and fit

This walking shoe from Skechers is designed for men and is available in US sizes 5.5 to 13, including half and full sizes in between. Widthwise, it only comes in a D - Medium profile. Though this model sports a slip-on construction, there’s a lacing structure at the midfoot which allows users to tighten the fit for a better locked-down feel.

Outsole

Adorning the bottom of the Skechers Skyline - Silsher is a full-length rubber outsole. This gum rubber compound is manufactured to be hard-wearing to support daily walks on rough surfaces. The flexibility and traction of this layer are enhanced by the flex grooves and the tread pattern that embellish the underside.

Midsole

The Skechers Skyline - Silsher is equipped with a full-length cushioning platform. This material is lightweight and flexible which facilitates natural foot movements. It also functions to absorb shock, keeping the foot protected against impact. The sides of the midsole have been sculpted to follow the shape of the foot. The unit also has a one-inch heel that helps lessen the tension on the Achilles tendon.

An Air Cooled Memory Foam insole is found inside the trainer.  This element enhances the shock attenuation offered by the primary midsole and delivers all-day comfort to the wearer.

Upper

The Skechers Skyline - Silsher sports a low-cut construction which promotes full ankle mobility. Its slip-on style makes for a quicker on-and-off action. For users who want a snugger fit, a lacing system is present at the midfoot. The laces are integrated with the suede panels on the quarters. These structures get drawn closer to the foot when the laces are cinched thereby enhancing the lateral support of the upper.

The upper is made of a soft woven mesh. This type of fabric is crafted to lock the foot down but its soft nature accommodates the natural foot expansion throughout the day. The material is also breathable, keeping the foot chamber fresh. Wrapped around the heel is a nylon fabric. This element serves as an external heel counter that steadies the rearfoot during the heel-to-toe motion. The interior is lined with smooth fabric for a great in-shoe experience.

The apex or the tongue of this model is shaped in such a way that it can be used as a pull tab. There’s also a fabric loop attached to the back of the collar. These elements make it easier for wearers to widen the mouth of the shoe so the foot can smoothly slide inside.
