In compliance with the other GOwalk trainers from Skechers, the GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Enhance features a rather simple yet practical design. It caters to those looking for an everyday walking shoe with a sporty vibe. It also comes in somber monochromatic colors which can be styled with various color combinations.

The brand’s proprietary ULTRA GO technology delivers cushioning in the Skechers GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Enhance. It is described as a lightweight foam material which allows the foot to transition smoothly from heel to toe throughout the walking gait cycle. It is also designed to be responsive and lessen the impact of foot landing.

The ULTRA GO is backed by the ULTRA PILLARS for an enhanced rebound. These protruding knobs are strategically placed at the bottom of the sole creating a bouncy effect. They are also made of a sturdier foam for added durability.  

Extra underfoot padding is offered by the Air Cooled Goga Mat insole. This unit is constructed to be breathable to allow fresh air inside the foot chamber.

The GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Enhance wraps the foot in a soft woven mesh fabric. It forms a lightweight and breathable yet supportive foothold.  

Smooth synthetic overlays protect the mesh against abrasion in the high-wear areas. They also add structure to the facade.

The padded tongue and collar create a soft support around the ankle. They prevent the shoe from slipping off the foot. The tightness can also be regulated through the traditional lace-up closure.

For those who prefer a more relaxed fit in their walking footwear, Skechers offers a similar model with a sock-like upper design. Known as the Skechers GOwalk Evolution Ultra, it features a SOCKNIT360 upper which has no laces and a soft woven fabric which is intended to fit like a sock.
