Outsole

The rubber outsole has made a lasting friendship with the one inch platform, and the benefits of that friendship can be felt on your feet.

The midsole of the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneaker is in fact a lightly padded midsole.

upper

upper

Look at that gorgeous man made upper. Made with synthetic fabric and real leather (depending of your choice), the upper is so simple and classic in an understated way. It adds a touch of class and makes this type of shoe versatile and transitional from day to night. The Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers have a variety of colors and styles in the upper, and there’s an interesting quilted design throughout the entire upper. It makes the shoes unique, fashionable and beautiful without adding too much. The shaft of the shoe measures approximately low-top from the arch, and it’s the perfect fit for a perfect shoe.

Comfort

The round toe in the upper along with the casual slip on design of the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers is the perfect example of the comfort done in a very simplistic way. And of course the manmade upper brings out the comfort in the most practical and minimalistic way possible. Why? The goring is there to provide the comfort, without the need of any zippers or additional details. Why would you need anything else, when two tiny but very powerful elastic goring is enough to give you the comfort that you need? Simple and efficient way of adding comfort in an understated way, don’t you think?
Support

Support

Yes, the simplicity and the functionality of the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers shines from different areas, and the outsole is one of them. While the upper took care about the comfort, the outsole of the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers provides the support. Made from vulcanized rubber, the outsole adds just the right amount of comfort. The additional one inch platform in the outsole is there to make the walking in the shoes a little more comfortable, and to make the shoes a lot more durable. Who would have thought that a platform can bring so much support and comfort to a shoe, but it’s true. A nice touch to the support from the outsole is the 3.5mm lug depth that’s been added for extra firm grip coming from the bottom of the shoe.
Stability

Stability

Every little detail counts, regardless of how small or insignificant it may seem. Take a look at the rubbery outsole. The Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers have the very firm and gorgeous white vulcanized rubber, but that adds to the stability portion is that fantastic one inch platform in that part of the shoes. The stability in Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers is brought to life thanks to the lightly padded insole, and the man made upper. But the stability is not only a supportive player here. It’s one of the MVP’s of the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers without compromising the other attributes that make the shoes unique, comfortable and stylish. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the stability that the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Senakers has to offer.
Durability

Durability

The durability of Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers is increased by the material used in the upper. If you chose a real leather sneaker, you’ll be adding years to the value and durability of the sneakers, but if you chose a vegan option, they wouldn’t be as durable as the non-vegan option. However, both options are carefully manmade and by increasing the comfort, support and the stability of the shoes, the durability is almost guaranteed. It’s like the pieces of a puzzle. You can have the complete look of the puzzle if one of the pieces is missing. It’s the same with the shoes. But the platform of the outsole is the main star here. It’s what makes the durability last longer, the manmade upper topped with quilted slip-on and fantastic dual goring just adds volumes to the overall quality and durability of the shoes.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Especially the flexibility part and the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers won’t let you down. The flexibility is just reinforced with the double goring on the upper but you’ll find that the flexibility comes from every inch of the shoes as well.
Airflow

Airflow

The heath. So, the smooth lining of the midsole adds a nice touch of comfort to the shoe, but the biggest portion of the airflow comes directly from the upper.

The manmade upper is responsible for the airflow from and to the Steve Madden EcentrcQ Sneakers, and the amount for airflow will depend if you chose a sneaker that’s made from natural materials like leather, or synthetic vegan options. The more natural the material, the bigger influx of airflow will be directed to the shoes.

Traction

Not we’ve mentioned that fantastic vulcanized rubber and it’s awesome. But if you take a close look at the very bottom of the outsole you’ll notice something even more awesome.
