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 - Starlet
- The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Starlet is part of the brand’s Performance line of footwear. Its style is reminiscent of the classic espadrilles wherein the upper is constructed using two overlapping sections stitched at the sides of the midfoot where they intersect. The shoe employs a soft woven mesh fabric that is both breathable and flexible to keep the foot fresh and bending naturally.
- The outsole and midsole of this trainer are made of a single foam technology called the 5GEN cushioning unit. This compound is manufactured to be flexible, durable and responsive to give wearers all-day comfort and support.
Skechers GOwalk Lite - Starlet size and fit
The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Starlet is designed to snugly fit a woman’s foot and is only available in a B - Medium width profile. It comes in women’s US sizes 5 to 12, including half sizes. There is no lacing system or strap that allows for fit customization, but the upper material is crafted to accommodate foot expansion while walking.
The underside of the Skechers GOwalk Lite - Starlet is the continuation of the midsole foam. This cushioning material is engineered to be durable, capable of withstanding walking on hard and rough surfaces. It features a tread pattern that facilitates natural foot bending. It also promotes multi-directional traction.
Inside the Skechers GOwalk Lite - Starlet is the Goga Max insole. This component not only supports the foot, but it also amplifies the shock attenuation property of the midsole.
As for the midsole, it is made of the 5GEN technology. This proprietary foam cushioning unit is designed to be responsive, so the shock absorbed from foot landing is turned into energy for pushing off the ground. By reducing impact, there is also less stress on the joints of the lower extremities.
The Skechers GOwalk Lite - Starlet features a look inspired by espadrilles thanks to its two-piece upper construction. It has a soft-woven mesh with a heathered finish that amps up the style factor. The material is pliable, promoting natural foot flexion.
The collar is lightly padded to keep the Achilles comfortable and free from chafing. It also helps in securing the foot. Though the mouth of the shoe is wide enough to accommodate the foot entering or exiting, there is a pull loop on the back of the collar that can be utilized to quickly pull the unit up.
