Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

Updates to Skechers Synergy - Power Switch
- Skechers promises lightweight comfort during workouts with the Synergy - Power Switch. It is claimed to have a unique upper that is made from the seamless Skech-Knit Mesh. The front, heel, and sides have a loosely knitted pattern for breathability while the toe and the sides have additional reinforcements of stabilizing mesh for enhanced durability and support.
- The foot is protected against impact by the Memory Foam insole. It conforms to the contours of the underfoot for a more customized cushioning.
- It employs the proprietary Flexsole midsole design for supplementary shock absorption. This flexible sole unit promotes natural flexion.
- A pliant rubber is installed on the bottoms. It delivers traction for a diverse range of ground textures.
Skechers Synergy - Power Switch size and fit
The Skechers Synergy - Power Switch is designed to accommodate a man’s foot. It tends to run true to size, so it follows the standard training shoe sizing. It only comes in one width profile, D - Medium. Those who favor a wider fit, one model to consider is the Skechers Elite Flex - Hartnell.
A flexible rubber lines the bottom of the Skechers Synergy - Power Switch. Its pliability affords the freedom to move unencumbered. Additionally, the material has a sticky grip on various surfaces.
The foot is cradled by the Memory Foam insert of the Skechers Synergy - Power Switch. This cushioning molds to the curves of the foot for personalized protection against impact.
The Flexsole midsole acts as a stable platform to keep the foot steady without restricting its movements. This sole unit also has a shock-absorbing feature.
The Skechers Synergy - Power Switch uses the Skech-Knit Mesh technology. It is a lightweight fabric that has a seamless construction to avoid weighing the shoe down. While it uses the same material for the entire upper, some areas have a different construction. The heels, front, and sides have loosely-knit open mesh panels to allow the air to go through the foot chamber. On the other hand, the toe and sides are strengthened for durability and support.
It utilizes a traditional lacing system to aim for a secured foot lockdown. The lace panel employs a thicker and more durable fabric to protect the upper from ripping due to the tug and pull of the laces.
A web fabric pull tab is attached on top of the heel collar. It facilitates easier slip on and off.
The plush tongue and collar provide a snug fit. They prevent skin chafing and accidental shoe removal.
