Skechers GOwalk 4 - Exceed size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Exceed is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. It follows the standard measurement lengthwise and comes in D - Medium for men and in a B - Medium width profile for women.

Outsole

The Skechers GOwalk 4 -Exceed utilizes an exposed midsole which means that the platform doubles as the outsole. It keeps the construction of the footwear light. The sole unit is durable and capable of withstanding the wear and tear associated with everyday walking on pavement.

It uses four Goga Pillars, two at the forefoot and two at the heel, to enhance the cushioning of the unit. These button-like structures adapt to the surface, so the impact of each step does not cause discomfort to the feet and legs.

The bottom of the sole sports a figure-8 design. This outline aims to evenly distribute the weight of the wearer during the walking gait cycle.

Midsole

The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Exceed employs the 5GEN midsole. This cushioning platform is engineered to have a high energy return which enables it to be bouncy and keep the foot from moving forward. It attenuates shock to prevent discomfort and pain.

The midfoot features a tapered design. It aims to prevent torsion and provide better arch support.

Inside, the Goga Max insole reinforces the footbed. It keeps the foot supported and comfortable. It also has a bouncy characteristic to ensure that the user does not experience foot fatigue. The insole is lined with bamboo fabric which has antimicrobial properties that control the odor.

Upper

The upper of the Skechers GOwalk 4 - Exceed is made of athletic mesh. This type of fabric is lightweight and naturally expands to provide a comfortable and natural fit.

It uses air mesh side panels with a fabric underlay of a different color. It adds style to the upper while keeping the inside of the shoe well ventilated.

At the back of the shoe is the Quick-Fit Portal. It is a small hole at the rear collar used to pull the trainer up when putting it on.

A traditional lace-up closure keeps the foot securely inside the trainer. The laces allow users to customize the fit. If tying laces aren’t your thing, try the Skechers GOwalk 4 - Incredible which sports a slip-on style.

Synthetic overlays are used in the eyestay and the Quick-Fit Portal. They enhance the durability of these high-wear areas.
