Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.
Updates to Skechers GOwalk Lite - Euphoria
- The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Euphoria is another model in the brand’s series of lightweight walking shoes. It is an athleisure trainer which merges casual style and performance. Similar to the other shoes in the series, it employs the 5GEN sole to ensure cushioning throughout the walking gait cycle.
- Like most shoes in the GOwalk Lite category, the Euphoria features a slip-on skimmer design to promote the feeling of lightness and freedom. The upper is made of the Ultrasock fabric which provides a snug foothold but stretches and expands along with the foot when needed.
Skechers GOwalk Lite - Euphoria size and fit
The GOwalk Lite - Euphoria by Skechers is crafted with a woman’s foot in mind. It is offered in US sizes 5 to 12, including half sizes as well. The shoe is only available in a standard B - Medium width profile. Its collar has knit elastic edges which are ready to stretch when the footwear is put on or removed. The instep panel is also made of a stretch knit to help the foot slip inside the shoe.
A single foam unit works as both the midsole and the outsole of the shoe. The lower part of this unit is made to be a bit sturdier as it has to withstand walking on concrete pavements and other abrasive surfaces.
The bottom of the shoe has a wicker-like design as if it was made of interwoven foam cords. It allows the sole to bend more easily and move naturally with the foot.
The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Euphoria makes use of the brand’s proprietary 5GEN midsole. It is created as a highly responsive foam unit which stretches from heel to toe, absorbing shock upon the impact and returning this energy back to the wearer. It is also made to be lightweight to make the footwear barely noticeable on the foot.
The Air Cooled Goga Mat insole can be seen inside the shoe. It completes the work of the primary cushioning unit by offering extra padding under the foot. It is also capable of letting air through it to maintain a dry and fresh in-shoe experience.
The GOwalk Lite - Euphoria utilizes a ballet flat design which makes it easy to slide in and out of the footwear. The stretch knit Ultrasock fabric takes the shape of the wearer’s foot as soon as the shoe is on. It then wraps the foot snugly and securely inside. This material receives a heathered finish for a softer feel and more casual appeal.
The edges of the collar are created to be elastic. This way they can lock the foot down when they are taut and expand easily when the shoe needs to be removed or put on. Stretchy knit panels are added in the heel and on the instep. They also help the upper to expand and return to its original shape during the on-and-off action. Inside the trainer, a soft fabric lines the interiors to prevent the weaver from unpleasant chafing and rubbing against the edges of the upper.
