Traction and durability

The outsole of the Skechers GOwalk 5 - Limelight is made from dual-density foam. It is softer in the upper section. It accommodates changes in pressure as the weight of the wearer moves from the heel to the toes. Meanwhile, the part of the outsole that hits the ground is more rigid, allowing it to withstand walking on rough and hard surfaces like concrete.
