    PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

    Everyday Wear

    Like the original collections, the ELEMENTAL edition is an everyday athleisure shoe designed to move with you. But this one has been revamped to brave the rain, slush, and snow.

    This sustainable sneaker is made with eco-friendly materials; a biodegradable insole, laceless cable system made from recycled plastic water bottles, and the outsole is a recyclable EVA rubber foam. This is the future of (winter) athleisure.

    Effective Shock-Relief For The Knees And Ankles

    Pain in the heels tends to extend across your whole leg which slows down your running pace and post-workout recovery.

     

    That’s why The Rbutus is reinforced with a market-leading SKYE Impact + Rebound Insole. The SKYE Impact portion is a built-in deep gel heel cup for impact absorption in the heel strike zone, for shock relief in the knees and ankles. Plus, the SKYE Rebound area is engineered with a springy tough gel to keep a natural bounce in your step, to keep you on the move.

     

    The mid-arch is crafted for responsive anatomical support, relieving stress put on the feet while you’re on the go. And there’s an anti-stink layer to prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

    Enjoy Injury-Free Exercises Ahead

    Shoes that are too tight or too loose may lead to painful cuts and blisters that make a huge difference in your physical performance. We have created the most comfortable cushion shoe system that hugs your feet like a glove. With ultra-bouncy midsoles and 4-way stretch uppers, you’ll be choosing these over your slippers.

    Experience Lace-Less Convenience

    There’s no time to waste when it comes to the daily grind. Do away with the laces because this bungee-cable system keeps the shoe snug and in place, so you don’t have to worry about untied shoes while on-the-go.

     

    The Loop-Lok is inspired by stand-up paddle boarding, where movement and flexibility, combined with reliability and strength, is key. The laceless system makes sure your feet are always snug, but while the sneakers are easy to slip on and slip off.

    Allow Your Feet To Breathe 

    For traditional sneakers, snug doesn’t always mean breathable.

    The material-mix for the shape-fit upper gives true 4-way stretch for a premium form-fit feeling. On top of that, the breezy breathable fabric feels like air to the toes, while the microfiber structure retains strength and support in its grip for a gently snug hug. Your feet still think they’re naked.

    Have The Ground Feel Light As Air 

    The running terrain can be challenging and unpredictable, straining your feet as you walk, run, or sprint on steeper, rockier, and uneven ground. This is your ground warrior – the part of a SKYE sneaker that makes the earth feel like clouds.

    Our own patented midsole design is an ultra-soft, shock-absorbing foam rubber base. The pillow-like EVA cushion compresses with every step and reforms back to full shape for seamlessly soft heel-to-toe movements.

     

    And it’s super light. Like walking on air.

    Easy-on and easy-off with no-tie laceless system.

    We’re done with laces. This bungee-cable system keeps the shoe nicely snug.

    We are inspired by stand-up paddleboarding, where movement and flexibility, combined with reliability and strength, is key. The laceless system makes sure your feet are always snug, but while the sneakers are easy to slip on and slip off.

    Shock absorption and a springy step for walking.

    The SKYE Impact + Rebound is an athletic-calibre insole for ergonomic comfort.

    We love to walk. The insole in this shoe is designed for walking endlessly. The built-in deep-gel heel cup absorbs shock, and is kind to the ankles and knees. But the firm rebound rubber adds a spring back into your step so you never miss a beat. And the mid-arch support is designed anatomical so that the entire insole makes walking naturally comfortable.
