Skechers GOwalk Lite - Coral size and fit

This Skechers walking shoe is made with the female foot dimensions and biomechanics in mind. It follows the standard US training shoe sizing scheme, with available sizes ranging from 5 to 12. Women can opt for either B - Medium or D - Wide width profiles.

Outsole

The bottom of the Skechers GOwalk Lite - Coral is also part of its sole unit, consisting of the EVA midsole. This material is more flexible than rubber, which is a typical component used for Skechers’ outsoles.

Its frame is fashioned using parametric design principles for flexibility. It takes special consideration of the foot’s requirements, shape, and biomechanics to create a component that moves with the foot.

Midsole

The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Coral has an EVA-made sole unit that is comprised of an amalgamation of several technologies. It is primarily built with 5GEN, a lightweight injection-molded compound that is meant to deliver responsive feedback with each step.

The top part is lined with proprietary SQUISH and Resalyte materials. They are characterized by their memory retention abilities for cushioning that adapts to the contours of the sole.

The Goga Max insole serves as another layer of cushioning. It also steadies the foot for a smooth ride.

Upper

The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Coral employs woven soft canvas fabric that is fashioned into a casual boat-style design. The lightweight material aims to offer breathability.

The Smooth Leather-Tex is used on the collar extending up to the instep. It is meant to reinforce the upper for support and snugness. It is lightly padded to protect the skin from irritation.

It employs a traditional lacing system to lock the foot down. It allows the wearer to adjust the fit according to their preference.
