Multisurface outsole grip

The Skechers Elite Flex features a flexible outsole that moves and bends along with the foot during workouts. It has an articulated design at the sides that further improves flexibility. It also has strong gripping properties that promote a secure foothold on various types of surfaces.

Fresh underfoot feel

The Skechers Elite Flex features an air-cooled Memory Foam for a fresh and breathable underfoot feel. It cushions the foot and absorbs shock.

The Skechers Elite Flex's midsole

The Elite Flex technology is utilized in the midsole. It is made to be just as flexible as the outsole while protecting the foot from impact and giving a bounce to each step. Its exteriors are marked with articulated ridges to enhance natural foot flexion.

Ventilated upper

This workout shoe from Skechers has a low-cut and slip-on design to facilitate ease of wear and ankle movement. It employs an almost seamless flat knit mesh fabric for ventilation. It has a high apex front and heel to prevent unwanted heel slippage.

Lateral support overlays

The sides are reinforced by smooth panel overlays for durability and lateral support. These panels also serve as ventilation to allow air to circulate throughout the foot chamber.

Since it has a slip-on construction, it doesn’t need a closure mechanism. However, it has a bungee-laced system that tightens the fit of the trainer. The padded collar also contributes to its snugness.
