The other thing about these shoes is that they have a tough flexible plastic "energy wedge" [my term] that is embedded in the heel. These are supposed to absorb the heel-strike energy and then help the heel rebound by returning the energy as the heels lift off.
Avia calls this it's "Shear Cantilever® System" and it may allow these shoes' heels to last longer than the Skechers because all the Skechers have is the outsole and then the pillow soft "Kinetic Wedge". It's my impression that the softer Kinetic Wedge in the heel will break down faster than the tough-looking Avia Shear Cantilever system but this is just an impression.
The Skecher is very comfortable from the outset while the Avia is more ridged feeling (more stable actually) so the Avia rocking motion is very "directed" forward while the Skecher is less fussy about which direction you move (including side-to-side).
The other thing about the Shape-Ups XT is that the width of the outsole, moving forward towards the front of the shoe, is about 1/4" narrower than the Avia. And the tread is more aggressive, and is broken by areas that allow the foot to flex a bit more as it travels forward (Avia calls these "Forefoot flex grooves" that allow for natural Dorsi flexion".
(1) this shoe is distinctly lighter in weight than the Skechers.
(2) it does not have a nylon loop lacing system like the Skechers; using the traditional lacing holes instead.Read more ›
These shoes make me feel like I'm only now walking and running using a form that will not harm me. They feel very natural. Much better than the Sketchers I tried in the store.
Now I have Happy Feet! I Highly recommend you purchase yours today!
