Who should buy the Skechers GOwalk 4-Convertible
The Skechers GOwalk 4-Convertible is another member of the brand’s Performance walking shoe family. Apart from its versatility, it boasts of its ability to turn its slip-on construction into a step-in one. It is a solid choice if:
- You want the convenience of having an all-in-one shoe suitable and comfortable enough for daily walks, traveling, fitness, work, leisure, and casual wear.
- A shoe that suits wearers with heel issues through its convertible heel section is what you need.
The bottom of the Skechers GOwalk 4 - Convertible is rubberized to protect the platform against the wear and tear of regular walking.
Part of it extends upwards to form a toe bumper to keep the toes and the upper material safe when hitting hard objects or tripping. The rubber bottom is also made to be textured to render traction on both indoor and outdoor surfaces.
Four Goga Pillars are placed in line from heel to toes. The purpose of these round pods is to help the main cushioning unit guide the foot from the heel strike to the toe-off smoothly and efficiently.
Responsive platform cushioning
The GOwalk 4 - Convertible employs the proprietary 5GEN midsole to deliver responsive cushioning. It is a lightweight, full-length foam unit that absorbs shock from each step, keeping the foot and lower extremities free from harmful impact.
The unit is designed to be tapered and elevated in the midfoot section to support the arch throughout the movement. It also contributes to the flexibility of the platform.
The Goga Max insole complements the midsole with added padding inside the shoe. It is created to adapt to the unique underfoot shape of the wearer for extra comfort. The footbed of the trainer is lined with a bamboo material. It serves to prevent bacteria and odor from building up inside the footwear.
The Skechers GOwalk 4-Convertible's upper
The shoe utilizes a nearly one-piece mesh upper to create consistent coverage for the foot. The engineered mesh material is made to be highly breathable and expand together with the foot for a natural, unhindered experience.
Modify for comfort
As the name suggests, the Skechers GOwalk 4 - Convertible features a modifiable construction. Its soft heel panel is designed in such a way that it can be easily folded down to offer an effortless slip-on-and-off and freedom for the rearfoot. The wearer also has the option of keeping the back section up.
The Quick-Fit Portal can be seen at the heel panel. It is a round aperture that assists in pulling on the footwear.
