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.

- The 5GEN foam technology serves both as the midsole and the outsole of this model. The compound is crafted to absorb shock and provide traction on various surfaces.

Skechers GOwalk Lite - Mar Vista size and fit
Made to accommodate the unique shape and dynamics of the female foot, the Skechers GOwalk Lite - Mar Vista is only available in US women’s sizes 5 to 12. For the width, it is only available in a B - Medium profile. The three-eyed lace-up closure allows users to adjust the fit. As for the upper material, the leather-textured fabric locks the foot down while also allowing it to expand naturally.
The outsole of the Skechers GOwalk Lite - Mar Vista is the continuation of the midsole. This foam technology is built to be durable to endure abrasions of walking on pavements. The tread pattern features a flexible parametric design to deliver a responsive experience and enhanced traction on various types of surfaces.
The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Mar Vista employs the brand’s 5GEN midsole technology. This proprietary foam cushioning is engineered to be lightweight and responsive to keep the foot comfortable during extended periods of walking.
Inside is the Goga Max insole which features a bamboo fiber coating that prevents odor formation and keeps sweat at bay. It is fashioned to be as comfortable as the brand’s Memory Foam technology but the Goga Max offers support and does not allow the foot to sink, so it is more springy and responsive.
This walking trainer sports a boat shoe style. It utilizes the brand’s Perform-Tex upper which is a smooth, leather-textured fabric developed to support the foot. It has a moc toe detailing at the front with further stitching accents at the quarter and the heel sections. A soft fabric covers the inside walls to deliver a great in-shoe feel.
The midfoot is adorned with a three-eye lace-up structure that is often seen in boat shoes. It affords users the ability to adjust the fit of the upper for a comfortable locked down feel.
The thin tongue protects the instep against the pressure created by the laces. The lightly padded collar is lined with soft fabric that prevents chafing.
