Updates to Skechers GOwalk Lite - Gem

  • The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Gem was created for women who seek a comfortable casual shoe with lasting support for walking and standing. The footwear inherits a responsive 5GEN platform from its predecessors in the Skechers GOwalk line to provide reliable cushioning throughout the day.
  • What sets the Gem model apart is its ballet flat design with the PerformTex upper. It is a soft, smooth material which resembles leather and gives the footwear a dressy touch.

Skechers GOwalk Lite - Gem size and fit

The GOwalk Lite - Gem by Skechers caters to a female foot and comes in a range of women’s US sizes from 5 to 11. Half sizes are also offered to help the buyers achieve the right length. Widthwise, both color variations of the shoe are available in a B - Medium width only. The rounded toe allows a bit more relaxed fit in the forefoot.

Outsole

The trainer features a single foam unit for both the midsole and the outsole. It helps in keeping the weight of the shoe very minimal. However, the lower portion of the unit is created to be firmer to guard the platform against abrasive outdoor surfaces. It also employs a woven pattern at the bottom which adds flexibility to the platform overall.

Midsole

The 5GEN midsole compound is responsible for cushioning in the Skechers GOwalk Lite - Gem. It is a lightweight and flexible full-length unit which keeps the feet and legs protected from the repetitive heel strike. It is also designed to provide padding all throughout the walking gait cycle.

The cushioning is enhanced by the Goga Max insole inside the footwear. It molds to the individual’s foot shape to render extra comfort.

Upper

The GOwalk Lite - Gem features a ballet flat upper style with a slip-on construction. It is made of the PerformTex material which has a leather-textured finish. Its smooth and shiny nature creates an impression that the shoe is made of genuine leather. Inside, the upper is lined with a soft fabric to keep the foot comfortable and free from irritation.
