Updates to Skechers GOwalk 4 - Edge

  • The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Edge is a modified women’s version of the original Skechers GOwalk 4. It has retained the internal features such as the innovative 5GEN midsole design and the GOGA Max insole for support, shock absorption, and comfort.
  • It still sports a low-cut profile for complete ankle mobility. However, the upper now uses advanced sewn mesh fabric for flexibility and breathability. It also employs a soft and smooth type of mesh underlay for comfort. It has been reinforced by 3D-printed synthetic overlays for durability.

Skechers GOwalk 4 - Edge size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Edge is engineered to fit the feet and biomechanics of women. It generally follows a standard training shoe sizing scheme with US sizes 5 to 13. It only comes in the standard width profile, B - Medium.

Outsole

The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Edge is covered with rubber at the bottom for traction on various types of surfaces. It is a durable material that lasts through the constant wear-and-tear of walking on uneven and abrasive flooring. The midfoot area is tapered for improved arch support.

Four Goga Pillars are lined up in the middle for adaptive cushioning. They also absorb impact to protect the foot from strain or injuries.

Midsole

This walking shoe from Skechers employs the proprietary Goga Max insole that is designed to provide a plush underfoot sensation. Despite the cushioning, it is firm enough to support the foot during extended periods of walking. A bamboo-made fabric lines the top to control odor-causing bacteria.

Supplementing the footbed is the 5GEN midsole. It also cushions the foot while giving energy transfer with every step, which means that it gives an extra bounce to the foot to propel it forward.

Upper

The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Edge has a low-cut profile that features an advanced mesh fabric. It is characterized by its flexibility and breathability to promote natural foot flexion. This material hugs the foot comfortably in a natural way.

Synthetic overlays are strategically placed all over the upper to safeguard its durability. Those on the sides are 3D printed while the ones on the heel are made of fabric to stabilize the foot.

The model is secured by a traditional lace-up closure. It boosts lateral support when the shoelaces are tightened and the sides are pulled taut.

The tongue and collar are padded for comfort. It protects the skin from irritation caused by constant friction.
