Updates to Skechers Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon

  • From the streets to the gym, the Skechers Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon is designed to meet the needs of busy women. This no-fuss footwear uses no-tie laces, so it quickly slips on when needed. The Skech Knit Mesh upper makes it an interesting addition to a user’s everyday ensemble, but the material also allows it to be a sturdy workout companion.
  • The Ultra Flex midsole is engineered to be lightweight and responsive. It has a high energy return, according to the brand, which gives it its bouncy feel. The midsole also serves as the outsole on this model. It has flex grooves that promote natural foot flexion as well as adding traction.
  • Inside the shoe is the Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole. This component is flexible, enhances the shock absorption of the midsole and ensures that the foot chamber is well-ventilated.

Skechers Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon size and fit

The Skechers Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon only comes in women’s sizes. Lengthwise, the footwear generally runs true to size. For ladies looking for wide workout shoes, this model comes in both B - Medium and D - Wide profiles.

Outsole

The Skechers Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon utilizes the midsole for its outsole. This construction contributes to the lightweight feel of the shoe. The platform is made to be durable, so it does not quickly get worn out.

Though the material is pliable, flex grooves are present to enhance its bendability and promote natural foot flexion. They also provide traction to the underside of the shoe.

Midsole

The Ultra Flex midsole is employed by the Skechers Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon. This proprietary foam is engineered to be lightweight and responsive for all-day comfort. It provides shock attenuation to prevent discomfort or injuries in the foot and the lower extremities.

The Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole is found inside the shoe. This flexible shock-absorbing component adds another layer of comfort. It also keeps the inside cool by allowing air to circulate.

Upper

The Skech Knit Mesh makes up the upper of this footgear. This material is lightweight and has stitching accents that give it its unique look. It is also breathable and keeps the foot chamber fresh. The striped collar is stretchy which allows it to accommodate the broadest part of the foot.

The Skechers Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon uses bungee stretch cords to secure the foot. The no-tie laces allow for quick on and off wear. They also provide a dynamic fit, stretching when needed and snug when it matters.

The back of the collar and the tongue are exaggerated in height and mimic a bootie design. It serves to keep the foot locked down. On the other hand, the medial and lateral sides of the collar are low not to hinder ankle mobility.
