Outsole

Outsole

The outsole of these sneakers is made out of durable and flexible rubber. You are not going to have to worry about the soles of these shoes wearing down before the rest of them do. The sticky rubber, combined with the wavy pattern on the bottoms of the shoes, are going to work together to make sure that they can hold quite the grip on many different surfaces. You do not want to have to worry about being out and about and having your feet slide out from under you if you happen to hit a wet patch on the floor. This is not really something that you will have to worry about because these shoes work hard to make sure you can stay on your feet and not fall and injure yourself.
Midsole

Midsole

The midsole of the Skechers BOBS Squad 2 sneakers has a sporty textured design that offers a decent amount of comfort and amazing shock absorption. When you are running or walking and hit your feet off of the ground, the midsole is going to take some of the force from that impact and absorb it so you are not repeatedly jarring your knees and other joints, which can cause discomfort or pain. Customers love that these have such great shock absorption.

Additionally, they have a memory foam cushioned insole to give you even more underfoot cushioning that your feet will love. The memory foam is going to mold to the specific shape of your feet giving you a more personalized and customizable fit. The foam is going to shape and mold to your foot giving you the support that you need, where you need it.
Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of the Skechers BOBS Squad 2 sneakers are made of an engineered knitted mesh material to ensure that you get a lightweight and breathable feel while you are on the go. The majority of the uppers are made out of a single piece of fabric so that there is a limited amount of stitching and seams inside of the shoes that can cause irritating rubbing and discomfort. There is a soft fabric lining inside of the shoes to help ensure you get a better in-shoe experience, you do not want to have to worry about your feet rubbing on the inside of your shoes, causing irritating blisters.

The knit uppers ensure you are going to get a pair of well-ventilated sneakers. By allowing a decent amount of air to flow into the foot chamber you are able to help keep your feet nice and cool while you are on the go, especially on a particularly warm day. The great ventilation is also going to help you keep your feet dry. Since the air is able to flow in and reach your feet it will help you sweat evaporate more quickly and escape the shoes, keeping that moisture off your feet, keeping you both dry and healthy.
Weight

As they are a casual shoe and not a sports shoe the weight is not going to affect you that much but it is nice knowing that they are relatively lightweight anyway.
