The rubber sole has about a quarter inch heel to it so they are not completely flat. The extra height on the heel is going to help increase the durability of the shoes, however, because a lot of people tend to be heel strikers so that is where the soles of their shoes start to wear out the fastest. By allowing some extra rubber in the back of the shoes you are going to ensure that as it wears down a little they are not going to be unwearable.
Thanks to the Memory Foam insole you will get a responsive ride that will give you a spring in your step while you are on the go. Your feet will sink down into the foam of the sole and then it will try to quickly and efficiently bounce back into its original shape, propelling you forward into your next step, saving you just a little bit of energy. Customers can appreciate the bouncy feel they will get while wearing these flats.
The shoes have a decent amount of ventilation in them, helping get air flowing into the foot chamber to ensure that your feet can stay relatively cool and dry, especially on warmer days. If the air can flow into your shoes and cool you down then it is also going to allow any sweat from your feet to evaporate more quickly and escape your shoes, keeping your feet dry and providing a healthy in-shoe environment.
The uppers have a little more structure to them but that does not mean that they are not flexible. They are still going to give you some wiggle room while still giving you the locked fit to keep you safe inside of your shoes. Sometimes it is tough for shoes to find that balance between support and flex, but Skechers did a good job with these flats.
The shoes have a scrunch back design with hidden internal elastic panels to help aid them with the slip-on design. They do feature a lacing system, but that is more for aesthetic purposes as opposed to functionality. The flats feature metal eyelets and knotted laces. Finishing off the look is the signature 'Bobs' logo featured at the tongue and the heels of the shoes.
The soles of the shoes were designed to take quite the beating as well. As mentioned above the outsole has about a quarter inch heel that is going to help increase the lifespan of the soles. The Memory Foam sole is great because it will be able to withstand you the repeated beating of your footsteps. The cushioning will not wear down too quickly and keeps its squish for a good long while.
Additionally, there is a soft and breathable fabric lining inside of the shoes that will help prevent uncomfortable and irritating chafing along your skin which could lead to nasty blisters and sores.
The Skechers Beach Bingo-Wet Blanket shoes are running pretty true to size so that should help a lot when trying to decide what size you should order. If you are unsure, you can always consult a sizing chart so you can make sure you get the ideal size the first time, so you will not have to go through the hassle of returning and reordering them.
They do have a traditional lacing system, however, they are more for aesthetics and not for functionality. These shoes work to keep your feet locked into place through the elastic scrunch back design. You are going to be able to easily slip your shoes on and off, but you will also be able to keep your feet locked into place while you are on the go. No need to worry about your feet slipping and sliding around inside of your shoes. You will get a locked-in and secure fit for all-day comfort and support.
