Updates to Skechers GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Turbo

  • The GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Turbo is an edition of the Skechers Evolution Ultra walking shoe. Just like the original, the Turbo version is created to promote extended periods of walking. The shoe incorporates a full-length ULTRA GO cushioning unit with the ULTRA PILLARS and the Air Cooled Goga Mat insole for a springy and breathable walking experience.
  • The trainer also employs a slip-on upper made of a woven material. The lateral support is reinforced with the help of synthetic panels which are connected top by a lacing system on top. The panels also have perforations to ensure ample ventilation.

Size and fit

The men’s version of the Skechers GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Turbo comes in a range of US sizes 7 to 14, while the women’s shoe is available between US sizes 5 to 13. Both are offered in half sizes as well. Widthwise, the trainer can be obtained in a standard D - Medium width for men and a B - Medium for women. The woven upper is designed to fit like a sock and stretch when needed. The elastic knit collar also stretches to allow for easy slip-on-and-off. The side panels enhance lateral support when the laces are cinched.

Outsole

There is no separate outsole in the GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Turbo since its platform only consists of one foam unit. Nevertheless, the bottom of this unit is made a bit sturdier to handle harsh surfaces like concrete pavements.

It is also constructed with separate pods which add cushioning throughout the walk. Four pods of a contrasting color can be found in the heel and the forefoot sections. These are the ULTRA PILLARS which have a high-rebound characteristic and contribute to the bouncy ride. The grooves between the pods help in making the platform flexible so that it can bend with the foot.

Midsole

A full-length ULTRA GO compound delivers cushioning in the Skechers GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Turbo. It is a lightweight yet responsive foam unit which attenuates the impact associated with walking. It also creates reliable padding to ensure a smooth heel-to-toe transition and a springy toe-off.

The Air Cooled Goga Mat is added inside the shoe. Its purpose is to create a pleasant underfoot experience by allowing air inside the interiors and providing additional padding.

Upper

The GOwalk Evolution Ultra - Turbo is designed as a slip-on shoe. It features an elastic collar which stretches to help the foot slide in easily. It also remains fairly tight, ensuring a snug fit in the ankle area. A fabric pull tab at the heel can be used to assist the on-and-off action.

This walking shoe from Skechers employs a woven mesh fabric in the instep and the forefoot sections. It creates a secure foothold while being stretchy enough to give the toes some wiggle room. Its ventilation pores also keep the foot chamber comfortably aerated. The heel panel is made up of a tightly woven fabric. It helps in keeping this area more close-fitting.

Synthetic overlays are added on the lateral and medial sides of the shoe to create a midfoot brace. They are interconnected with a lacing system on the instep. When the laces are tightened, the panels draw together strengthening lateral support. The perforations throughout the overlays also contribute to the breathability of the upper.
