Outsole

Outsole

The Skechers Beach Bingo-Wet Blanket ballet flats have an outsole that is made out of a flexible rubber compound that is going to ensure you have a decent amount of durability and great traction while you are out and about. The "Bobs" logo and other fun designs that are carved into the bottoms of the shoes, combined with the grippy rubber, help work together to make sure that you are going to be able to stay on your feet while you are on the go. You are not going to have to worry about your shoes slipping out from underneath you if you hit a slick spot, causing you to fall and injure yourself or others. Of course, you should still use caution and it is still possible you might slip, but these shoes will help reduce the risk of that happening.

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.
Midsole

Midsole

The Skechers Beach Bingo-Wet Blanket ballet flats have a super comfortable midsole that will give you all-day comfort that your feet will thank you for at the end of a long day. They have a Memory Foam insole that will mold and conform to the shape of your feet, giving you the cushioning and support that you need, where you need it the most. The shoes also feature a contoured arch support design that will give you some extra padding under your arches to give you a little extra comfort and support while you are out and about.

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.
Upper

Upper

The uppers of these ballet flats are made out of soft woven canvas fabric with a casual scrunch back collar designed to help easily slip-on your shoes while also keeping them locked into place. The canvas materials are strong for durability yet they are still breathable and flexible.

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.
Weight

Weight

When it comes to your shoes you want to try to find something that is going to be as light as possible.

The canvas uppers are super light, they barely add anything to the weight of the flats. The midsole and outsole designs are the same way, made with lightweight cushioning and flexible rubber.

Flexibility

Flexibility

Flexibility is important when it comes to your footwear of choice. You want to make sure that you are going to have the freedom to move around as freely and naturally as possible inside of your shoes.

Luckily, that is not something that you are going to have to worry about with the Skechers Beach Bingo-Wet Blanket flats. They have a flexible rubber sole that is going to bend and move with you with each step you take, allowing you to move naturally while still providing you with the protection and support you require from your shoes.

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.

They do have a solid colored back panel to finish off the look. The bright and fun print of these shoes make up for the fact there are no other color options available.

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.
