Profile of the Skechers Summits
The Skechers Summits is an athletic walking shoe for traveling, and regular daily wear. Its slip-on construction with a bungee-laced instep affords easy on-and-off wear while keeping the foot securely when it’s inside. The breathable Flat knit mesh fabric wraps the foot in a supportive yet non-restricting way.
A single EVA foam unit comprises both the midsole and the outsole in the Skechers Summits. This design is meant to keep the platform lightweight and flexible. Deep horizontal and vertical flex grooves at the bottom make sure that the sole bends both forwards and sideways, accommodating various movements.
A thick layer of EVA protects the foot from impact during walking sessions. It is crafted to render cushioning for extended periods of wear. The sole also has a semi-curved shape which mimics the natural curvature of a human foot for extra comfort.
The Memory Foam insole is used inside the Skechers Summits. It molds to the shape of the wearer’s foot for customized padding.
The upper unit is made of a nearly one-piece Flat knit mesh fabric for a sock-like fit. Its ventilation pores allow fresh air to enter the foot chamber dissipating the heat.
The Skechers Summits employ a slip-on design making the process of putting on and removing the shoe smoother. It features a bungee-laced instep in place of a conventional lacing system. The bungee laces cannot be used to adjust the fit; however, they stay taut providing a lockdown fit when the foot is inside and stretch easily when the trainer is being taken off or put on.
The front and back portions of the collar extend up to support the foot. A pull tab is added at the front apex to assist in the on-and-off wear.
