Updates to Skechers GOwalk Joy - Terrific

  • The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Terrific is a walking shoe that caters to people who are constantly on their feet. It features a full-length 5GEN midsole with a thick heel that absorbs shock during heel strike. The cushioning platform also functions as the outsole. It is created to be durable and grippy on most types of surfaces.
  • The Goga Max insole lines the inside of the shoe. This element increases the shock absorption property of the midsole for longer periods of comfort.
  • This model shares the same silhouette and upper material with the original GOwalk Joy. This lightweight and breathable material expands to accommodate foot movements.

Skechers GOwalk Joy - Terrific size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Terrific is only available in women’s sizes. It follows the standard measurement in terms of length and ranges from U.S. size 5 to 13. It comes in a B - Medium width profile.

Outsole

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Terrific sports an exposed midsole. It means that the midsole is designed to withstand the wear and tear associated with walking on pavement.

The woven-like tread pattern aims to deliver a comfortable walking experience. The flex grooves facilitate natural foot flexion and enhance the traction of the platform.

Midsole

The midsole of the Skechers GOwalk Joy - Terrific is made of the 5GEN cushioning technology. This proprietary platform is engineered to be lightweight and durable. It is responsive which allows it to attenuate shock better and prevent discomfort or injuries to the feet, legs, or knees.

Inside is the Goga Max insole. This component enhances the cushioning of the midsole. It also supports the foot to keep it steady.

Upper

The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Terrific utilizes a mesh upper. This material is lightweight, so it doesn’t weigh the foot down. It is made to expand and accommodate foot movements naturally.

The footwear features a knit-in athletic stripe pattern. This design adds a stylish flair to the shoe.

A featherweight sockliner lines the inside of the trainer. Like the material of the upper, it adapts to the foot while walking to deliver consistent support.

The shoe has a slip-on design. It lacks any adjustable systems like laces and straps, but it does have a wide mouth that allows it to accommodate the broadest part of the foot easily.
