Updates to Skechers Vigor 2.0 - Serpentine

  • The Skechers Vigor 2.0 - Serpentine is an update to the Vigor 2.0 line. The current version retained the low-cut profile of the original; however, they are completely different in terms of the upper material. Whereas the previous iteration utilizes a mostly mesh upper, the new model now sports an entirely smooth leather one. This material is designed to afford more support and protection to prevent wobbling. The front and side panels have been microperforated to allow air to circulate throughout the foot chamber.
  • The insole is topped with the Memory Foam. It molds to the contours of the underfoot for a more personalized cushioning.
  • Below it is the midsole. It shields against the impact of footstrike to protect the foot from potential stress and injuries.
  • The rubber outsole is meant to enhance traction on different types of surfaces. It has a flexible form that promotes natural foot flexion.

Size and fit

The Skechers Vigor 2.0 - Serpentine is a workout shoe that was designed to accommodate the biomechanics and foot structure of men. It comes in two width options: D - Medium and 2E - Wide. The rigidity of the leather upper may make the footwear fit more snugly than usual, so shoppers are advised to go up a size to get an accurate size.

Outsole

A flexible rubber covers the entire bottom of the Skechers Vigor 2.0 - Serpentine. This compound is claimed to boost traction on various kinds of surfaces. It is also created to be flexible in order to keep up with dynamic workouts.

Midsole

The insole of the Skechers Vigor 2.0 - Serpentine is topped with the Memory Foam to deliver plush cushioning. It molds to the crevices of the foot for a more personalized sensation.

The model employs a shock-absorbing midsole to protect the foot against potential stress and injuries caused by heavy impact. It is engineered to act as a stable platform for the midfoot and the heel.

Upper

Smooth leather is wrapped around the topmost part of the Skechers Vigor 2.0 - Serpentine. This rigid textile aims to support the foot and thwart wobbling. Due to the opaqueness of the material, the sides and the toe box have been microperforated for ventilation.

Textured synthetic overlays are sewn over key areas for protection against rips. It also improves the support of the shoe.

It employs a traditional lace-up closure for an adjustable fit. It contributes to the lateral support of the shoe as it creates makeshift sidewalls that steady the foot.

The padded collar and tongue protect the skin against irritation. They also make the trainer have a more snug fit.
