Ugg is a company primarily known for designing those Ugg boots that you see so often. Those are the ones that got the company famous, and they’re immediately associated with them.

Not to mention plenty of traction. The bottom part of the outsole, however, doesn’t contain more pronounced ridges and indentations, so the traction isn’t that satisfactory, but given the fact that this is a rubber outsole made with Treadlite technology, the traction will be at least present to some extent. Treadlite technology and all the good things that go with it will also add volumes to the comfort of the sneaker, and you will feel that comfort all day long. Since this is an everyday sneaker, you will definitely want to wear sneakers all day every day. And why shouldn’t you? Feli Hyperweave is an amazing versatile sneaker that will be there for you at all times.
EnerG is the name of the first and it occupies the insole for maximum comfort. The enerG insole has superior cushioning that allows your feet to feel more relaxed, rested even if you’re wearing the sneakers for a lengthy period of time.
Why? Because it has a great arch-support that's built in the insole. And the insole is composed form 2 individual fantastic layers. The first uses an open cell-style of foam for strong anti-microbial protection. The second uses polyurethane pods all around the surface of that layer. They’re resilient pods and they’re placed strategically in order to give you support, quick rebound and plenty of movement. And all that with your own feet flex points. Oh and that insole is lined with leather which provides maximum breathability to your feet. The other fantastic feature in the midsole is Flexfit technology. It’s the technology that ensures that the sneakers fit comfortably without any cramping, pinching, unpleasant feeling and without the fear of the sneakers losing their shape.
Why? Because it has the perfect combo of lightweight breathable materials and perforated design that allows the aeration to be present all the time. So the aeration and the breathability of the sneakers are allowed by two separate features in the upper, but more on that later. For now, let’s focus on different aspects of that upper. Like the lacing system. The closure of the sneakers is a classic lace-up style closure with 4 separate eyelets and synthetic polyester shoelaces that go through the eyelets. The lacing system ensures the feet are secured tightly within the structure of the upper, but another thing in the upper does that as well.
The sock-like opening in the collar of the sneaker. It’s secured with a nice pull tab and it’s gorgeous. This particular opening allows you to put on the sneakers easily and without any struggle, but the tab sure helps things along. The opening also fits nicely in the ankle area, hugs the ankle and allows it to be secured and in place at all times.
Both areas of the shoe have different technologies that allow the support, flexibility and the comfort to be enhanced, but things would have been very different if the Flexfit technology in the midsole was omitted. It’s the technology that allows the midsole (and the sneaker for that matter) to retain the shape even after prolonged time on your feet. It’s what helps the support system in the sneakers, and all of them combined really add up in the delivery of the support.
The traction properties are also enhanced thanks to the Treadlite technology, but there’s no denying that the durability would have been weaker if it wasn’t for this particular technology. Why? Well, let’s put it this way. If a lifestyle shoe isn’t flexible enough it will cause a multitude of problems not just to the person that’s wearing it, but also to the shoe itself. If the sneakers lack flexibility and quality they would break, tear down easily and their durability would be compromised. But when you have a technology like Treadlite technology, to take care of those things, that it’s one thing off your mind.
But luckily the flexibility isn’t allowed solely because of the outsole. The engineered knit in the upper is fantastic in providing flexibility as well. The type of knit that these sneakers have is called HyperWeave, and it’s ultra-breathable. It brings a more pronounced and enhanced motion, comfort and plenty of flexibility. Your entire foot is able to move freely in the shoe, thanks to the fantastic knitted upper.
