Updates to Skechers GOwalk 4 - Achiever

  • The midsole uses the proprietary 5GEN cushioning platform. This responsive unit ensures that the foot is protected and comfortable during extended periods of walking and standing.
  • Inside the shoe is the Goga Max insole. It enhances the shock absorption of the midsole and has an odor control feature to keep the foot smelling fresh.

Skechers GOwalk 4 - Achiever size and fit

This walking shoe is designed for a female foot, so it is available in women’s sizes. It generally runs true to the standard length measurement and comes in U.S. sizes 5 to 13. Women could choose between a B - Medium and a D - Wide width profile.

Outsole

The midsole of the Skechers GOwalk 4 - Achiever doubles as the outsole. It is engineered to be durable and provide traction to the underside. It sports a figure-eight design which helps to distribute the weight evenly during the heel-to-toe transition.

The Goga Pillars aim to enhance the cushioning of the platform. These are the circular structures found in the forefoot and the heel areas. They adapt to the surface, compressing when stepped on, and bounce back to their original state quickly. This responsive cushioning keeps the foot protected when it strikes the ground.

Midsole

The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Achiever utilizes the 5GEN midsole. This lightweight cushioning platform is made soft to attenuate shock and keep the foot comfortable. The tapered midfoot is meant to improve the arch support.

The Goga Max insole lines the inside of the shoe. This component adds another layer of shock absorption and is intended to keep the foot supported. It is lined with a fabric made of bamboo fibers which have antibacterial properties to prevent unpleasant odor from developing.

Upper

The upper of the Skechers GOwalk 4 - Achiever is made of soft woven heathered jersey knit fabric. This smooth and stretchy material delivers a snug but comfortable fit as it naturally expands to accommodate foot movements. It is also breathable which ensures that the foot chamber is aerated.

The back collar features the Quick-Fit Portal. Users could hook their finger into the hole to quickly pull the back of the shoe up when putting it on.
