- As the name suggests, the Skechers Flex Advantage 3.0 - Stally was crafted to be a flexible all-around training shoe. It employs a full-length FlexSole unit for lightweight and pliable cushioning. This unit also doubles as the outsole; however, the bottom is still reinforced with rubber pods at the forefoot and the heel for grip and protection.
- The upper unit is made of the brand’s own Skech Knit Mesh material. It has an open construction in the forefoot and on the tongue for enhanced breathability. However, it uses a tightly-woven fabric at the midfoot and the back for support.
The Skechers Flex Advantage 3.0 - Stally was designed specifically for men. It is available in a wide range of US sizes, from 6.5 to 15, with half sizes offered as well. All color variations of the shoe can be obtained in a standard D - Medium width, while some of them also come in a 2E - Wide profile.
The central portion of the outsole is an extension of the foam midsole unit. Such a design helps in reducing the weight of the trainer and makes the platform more pliable. The pattern on the foam features multiple knobs and flex grooves that also contribute to the flexibility of the unit.
Rubber compounds are added at the heel and the forefoot sections. They enhance protection of these high-wear areas while adding the necessary grip for training activities.
The Flex Advantage 3.0 - Stally employs the brand’s proprietary foam compound called FlexSole as its core cushioning unit. Designed to be lightweight, flexible, and responsive, it accommodates a variety of movements that the foot performs throughout the workout session. It also attenuates shock during high-impact exercises.
The Air Cooled Memory Foam insert complements the FlexSole by giving extra underfoot padding. It also allows air into the foot chamber, preventing the heat and odor from building up.
The pair of Skechers workout shoes employs the Skech Knit Mesh to deliver breathable support in the upper unit. This woven fabric has bigger ventilation pores in the forefoot to keep the inside aerated. It is more tightly-woven in the midfoot and the rearfoot to hold the foot firmly.
The steadiness of the foot is further secured by a synthetic overlay on the heel. Lateral support is ensured by the stretchy cords on both sides of the shoe. They are intertwined with the lacing system by forming extra eyelets. As the laces are tightened, the cords become taut as well and pull the quarters of the trainer closer together.
The tongue and collar are padded to keep the wearer comfortable throughout the ride. The tongue features open mesh for added breathability. It also has a fabric loop for the laces to run through and prevent the tongue from sliding.
