Skechers Technology

Skechers are well-known for their use of memory foam insoles, which provide a customised and supportive fit by conforming to the foot and are Air-Cooled through perforations in the foam to enhance breathability.

Their Max Cushioning technology offers a layer of lightweight Ultra GO cushioning and a responsive Air-Cooled Goga Mat insole for ultimate comfort, while their Massage Fit technology offers a gentle massage sensation with every step by utilising Hyper Burst cushioning and a firmer wave section in the middle of the outsole.

Their latest technology features Hands Free Slip-Ins, designed with a unique Comfort Pillow in the heel, and allowing an effortless fit.

Among other comfort technologies, Skechers Arch Fit technology features Podiatrist certified arch support, and some of its casual shoes feature a Relaxed Fit design that provides a roomier fit in the forefoot area.
