The first thing that strikes about Skechers Women’s Flex Appeal 2.0 sneakers is its extremely striking look, thanks to their uppers which are made from 100% knitted material.
This soft heathered knit fabric makes these sneakers highly breathable and flexible apart from reducing its weight. These are low top shoes when measured from the arch. This makes them suitable for activities such as hiking. The tongue, as well as collar, is padded with color that matches the lace.
The white-colored rubber sole in these sneakers slants upwards from the base of toes. The midsole is also clearly identifiable as it is black, and has descriptions such as “Dual-Lite”, “Flex Sole 2.0” or “Air Cooled”, mentioned on it, depending upon the shoe model that is selected.
Accordingly, the function of the insole and midsole also vary. The insole includes memory foam that is air-cooled.
Overall, these sneakers are flexible, partly due to laces, which include synthetic overlay in this panel. These sneakers fit snugly like socks and keep the feet warm though these would not be recommended for winters and even rains.
Wider shoes are also available in this product line, but not all models have such wider shoes. The good news is that these shoes are comfortable even for people with high arches. Most wouldn’t need inserts.
However, insoles are not removable. The size tends to be a bit of a smaller size, so ordering a half size “up” may work better. You can check the Skechers size chart here.
The outsole comes with somewhat deeper vertical grooves and horizontal grooves, together forming almost squares and rectangles. The two deeper vertical grooves tend to be deeper around the middle part of these shoes though the grooves that run across creating square design are also fairly deep. It is these grooves that give these shoes their flexibility.
The striking feature of the outsole is colored additional reinforcement at the outer heel corner and corresponding support at the big toe and its base in the same color and material.
These shoes are available in five different color combinations, i.e., black and white, black and lavender ball, black and hot pink, navy and aqua, and black. The colors vary based on the colors of midsole and laces.
These shoes can be used in workplaces where the person has to walk a lot on concrete flooring or stand for long on such flooring as these do not cause backaches or knee pains.
The soft cushioning in the insole ensures that the feet do not tire even when these shoes are used for long hours. These shoes can also be worn on a casual occasion.
