Updates to Skechers GOwalk Joy - Immense

  • Just like its siblings in the Skechers GOwalk Joy walking shoe series, the GOwalk Joy - Immense sports a low-cut silhouette to allow maximum freedom for the ankle. Aside from that, the shoe employs a slip-on construction with no lacing involved.
  • Cushioning the foot is the brand’s proprietary 5GEN foam unit. Lightweight and responsive, it keeps the feet and lower extremities free from the impact upon heel strike.
  • What sets the Immense model apart is the use of a wide, satin-finish band to keep the foot in place throughout the movement. Its glossy look also adds a stylish touch to the footwear, making it suitable for casual wear.

Skechers GOwalk Joy - Immense size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Immense was crafted to accommodate a woman’s foot. The sizes range from US 5 to 13, including half sizes as well. The shoe caters to the regular foot width dimensions as it is available in a B - Medium profile only. The wide shoe mouth allows to slip-on the trainer effortlessly. The mesh upper is meant to create a snug foothold but stretch naturally as the foot moves. The medial band is made wide and is placed closer to the ankle to secure the fit and offer lateral support.

Outsole

This part of the shoe is a continuation of the midsole. Such design helps to keep the weight of the trainer minimal and the platform flexible. However, the bottom of the shoe is made to be a bit firmer than the rest of the foam unit to withstand walking on pavements and other surfaces.

The GOwalk Joy - Immense employs the brand’s unique wicker-like pattern. Its purpose is to provide a natural walking experience by bending along with the foot.

Midsole

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Immense makes use of the brand’s own 5GEN technology. It is a full-length foam cushioning unit which attenuates impact and carries the foot softly from heel to toes.

The Air Cooled Goga Mat insert is added for extra underfoot padding. It also has a breathable nature which allows air inside the shoe and keeps it fresh and free from odor and moisture. It is extremely lightweight and quickly adapts to the shape of the wearer’s foot.

Upper

A soft knit fabric is responsible for embracing the foot in the GOwalk Joy - Immense. It is designed to fit and stretch like a sock to contribute to the pleasant walking experience. The bottom edges of the mesh are covered in a thin polyurethane layer for added durability.

A wide fabric band on the instep gives a soft yet secure embrace to the midfoot section. It has a satin finish which makes it glossy and ornate enough for casual wear.
