Updates to Skechers GOwalk Joy - Invite

  • The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Invite is another model in the brand’s renowned series of walking footwear. It inherits the tested 5GEN midsole of its predecessors to deliver lightweight cushioning for daily walking.

  • Like its predecessor, the GOwalk Joy, it features a woven upper is designed to stretch with the foot for comfort and support. It blends multiple colors to give the product a vibrant style.  

Skechers GOwalk Joy - Invite size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Invite comes in a women’s version only. It is available in US sizes 5 to 13 and runs true to the brand’s sizing scheme. Widthwise, the shoe is offered in a B - Medium profile.

Outsole

A rubber compound lines the bottom of the Skechers GOwalk Joy - Invite. It protects the platform from wearing out on concrete pavements and other outdoor surfaces.

The outsole features a wickerwork-like pattern. It is engineered to provide a smooth and easy walking gait cycle.

Midsole

The brand’s proprietary 5GEN midsole is employed for cushioning in the GOwalk Joy - Invite. It is a full-length EVA foam component that is crafted to be lightweight and responsive yet supportive for long walking sessions.

Maximizing the rebound of the midsole is the Goga Max insole. It renders underfoot comfort and support by adapting to the shape of the wearer’s foot.

Upper

A nearly one-piece woven material makes up the upper unit of the Skechers GOwalk Joy - Invite. It hugs the foot in a supportive way but stretches and expands when needed. Its construction also allows air to ventilate the foot chamber. The trainer receives a stylish flair with the knit-in multi-colored threads.

Despite the use of a lace-up closure, the shoe is meant to have a slip-on design. The flat, stretchy laces expand easily when the footwear is put on or taken off and become taut once the foot is inside.

The tongue and collar are padded to keep the foot comfortable and secured. The tongue is lined with open mesh for added breathability.
