Updates to Skechers GOwalk Lite - Flare

  • The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Flare is an everyday walking shoe that provides comfort with each step. It features a breathable woven mesh that is pliable and breathable for a comfortable in-shoe feel. The low-cut design also promotes ankle mobility.
  • For the sole unit, it employs the 5GEN midsole. This platform works as both a cushioning unit and a protective cover for the foot as it also functions as the outsole. The compound is made to be flexible and durable, with the purpose enhanced by the Air Cooled Goga Max insole.

Skechers GOwalk Lite - Flare size and fit

Constructed to accommodate the unique shape and dynamics of women’s feet, the Skechers GOwalk Lite - Flare is available in US sizes 5 to 12, including half sizes. For the width, it only comes in a B - Medium profile. The mesh upper is designed to fit closely without restricting movements. The fit is also customizable thanks to the lacing system.

Outsole

The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Flare features a full-length midsole that also functions as the outsole. This material is designed to be durable to protect the foot from harsh elements on the ground. The trainer features a woven-like tread pattern that facilitates natural foot flexion. This woven design also enhances the traction of the sole unit to prevent slippage.

Midsole

Inside this pair of Skechers walking shoes is the Air Cooled Goga Max insole. This component serves as another layer of protection from shock and is crafted to help circulate air and keep the foot fresh.

The primary midsole is made of the 5GEN technology. This proprietary cushioning platform is created to be lightweight, so the wearer doesn’t feel weighed down. The sole unit is also responsive, returning energy from each step and keeping the person moving.

Upper

The Skechers GOwalk Lite -  Flare sports a sneaker-style silhouette. This construction delivers a supportive wrap with a low-cut collar that promotes ankle mobility. The upper uses a soft knit mesh with open pores that keep the interior of the trainer well ventilated, but not too much since the inside is lined with smooth fabric.

Synthetic overlays are used in various parts of the footgear. They reinforce the toe box and the eyestay and work to keep the rearfoot steady.

A lacing system is present at the midfoot, allowing users to customize the fit. A single slot on top of the tongue accommodates the laces and prevents it from sliding to the sides.

To keep the foot secure and comfortable, Skechers constructed the GOwalk Lite - Flare with a padded tongue and collar. These components also prevent chafing and blisters from forming.
