Updates to Skechers GOwalk Joy - Enchant

  • Just like the other models in the popular line of Skechers walking shoes made for women, the Skechers GOwalk Joy - Enchant is a slip-on walking shoe that is claimed to bring the joy of walking back to its users’ lives with the comfort that it provides. The mesh upper is engineered to move and expand with the foot during the walking gait cycle. It has a nearly seamless style for a lightweight and irritation-free sensation.
  • The Goga Max insole gives a plush underfoot feel. It is also meant to augment the support for a more secure footing.
  • The midsole makes use of the 5Gen technology. It is made to be innovative and responsive. It has a parametric style of cushioning for even coverage.

Skechers GOwalk Joy - Enchant size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Enchant is designed with the woman’s foot and gait in mind. It runs the full gamut of US sizes, from 5 to 13. Shoppers in between size measurements would be glad to know that there are half sizes available. It only comes in the standard width profile, B - Medium.

Outsole

A rubber material covers the bottom of the Skechers GOwalk Joy - Enchant. It is meant to deliver traction on a wide variety of surfaces. It is marked with an integrated pattern to reduce slipping.

Midsole

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Enchant has two components that are working together to give a responsive and cushioned feel. The top part is made of the Goga Max insole that serves as the initial cushioning and supportive layer.

Like the original GOwalk Joy, this model employs the sturdy 5Gen midsole. It aims to offer a highly responsive energy transfer that converts the force upon footstrike into propulsion power that springs the foot forward to its next step.

Upper

An almost seamless heathered mesh fabric makes up the top part of the Skechers GOwalk Joy - Enchant. It is made to be flexible to expand with the foot to accommodate the natural forefoot flexion and toe splaying during walking. It is also breathable to allow air to circulate throughout the foot chamber. It has a slip-on construction for easy on-and-off action.

A panel overlay is sewn into the heel. It reinforces this section to prevent slippage

A pull tab can be found at the top of the collar. It makes for easier shoe pull-up.
