Updates to Skechers GOwalk Joy

  • Women looking for a comfortable walking shoe with a sleek design can turn to the Skechers GOwalk Joy. It is fashioned to meet the needs of women on the go without compromising their style. It features a foot-hugging mesh upper that delivers support and breathability. It is easy to wear; just slip it on - no laces to fuss with.
  • The sole unit is made of the 5GEN technology. It is designed to be flexible and responsive to absorb shock and keep the foot comfortable. It is also manufactured to be durable as it doubles as the outsole. The footgear also employs the Goga Max insole that amplifies the function of the midsole.

Skechers GOwalk Joy size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk Joy is available in women’s US sizes 5 to 13, including half-sizes. It comes in various width options such as 2A - Narrow, B - Medium, and D - Wide. The mesh upper offers a supportive wrap that also promotes natural foot movements. The material is also designed to accommodate expansion of the foot while walking.

Outsole

The Skechers GOwalk Joy features a midsole that also functions as the outsole. It is manufactured to be hard-wearing and endure walking on rough surfaces. It features a tread pattern that promotes flexibility and enhances traction of the material.

Midsole

Keeping the foot protected from impact is the 5GEN midsole. This cushioning technology is engineered to be highly responsive to attenuate shock, prevent foot fatigue, and keep it moving forward.

Inside the Skechers GOwalk Joy is the Goga Max insole. This plush element adapts to the foot and enhances the cushioning of the midsole for long-lasting comfort and support.

Upper

A mesh upper protects the foot. This wrap is crafted to be supportive but still allow expansion and toe

splaying. It is also breathable to keep the foot chamber well ventilated.

The Skechers GOwalk Joy sports a slip-on construction for an easy on-off action. There are no laces or straps to adjust the fit, but the material is meant to fit the foot closely. There’s also a pull loop on the back of the collar, making the trainer easier to put on.

The collar is lightly padded. The plushness keeps the ankle free from chafing while also locking the rearfoot down.

Additional Info

Skechers also released a lace-up version of the Skechers GOwalk Joy. It uses the same sole technology as the original version, but the upper has been replaced with a tightly woven mesh. Plus, it has the added benefit of fit adjustment because of the presence of the lacing system.
