Good to know

The Skechers Elite Flex - Westerfield was created for men whose lifestyle involves a lot of walking. The shoe inherits the slip-on style of the original Skechers Elite Flex trainer to unburden the wearer of the need to lace up the footwear.

The outsole and the midsole of the Elite Flex - Westerfield are part of one single foam unit, the Elite Flex. It is only made denser at the bottom part for enhanced resistance to abrasion. The articulated design of the foam unit allows for natural flexibility and versatility of movement.

The Elite Flex unit is also responsible for cushioning and impact attenuation. It accommodates extended periods of walking and standing.

The Air Cooled Memory Foam insole is placed in addition to the main cushioning. It offers extra padding and helps in keeping the foot environment free of heat and odor.

The Skechers Elite Flex - Westerfield sports a nearly one-piece fabric upper unit. It utilizes the proprietary Skech Knit Mesh, which is a soft woven fabric that hugs the foot in a sock-like manner. This material is also designed to be breathable and flexible.

The 3D-printed synthetic panels are placed at the bottom of the lateral and medial sides of the upper. They make sure that the foot receives support during side-to-side movements.

This pair of Skechers walking shoes makes use of a slip-on construction to help the wearer slide in and out of the footwear quickly and smoothly. The high apex and the pull tabs at the front and the back of the collar assist in this process.

Resistant bungee laces are added on top of the instep. They hold the foot securely in place when it is inside the shoe but stretch easily when the trainer is put on or removed.
