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.

Skechers GOwalk Mantra Ultra size and fit
The Skechers GOwalk Mantra Ultra is a walking shoe that is meant to accommodate the foot shape and biomechanics of women. It has an extensive range of sizes that runs from US 5 to 11, with half sizes available. It only comes in the normal width option, B - Medium.
To protect the foot and other lower extremities from impact, the Ultra Pillars system has been added to the bottom of the Skechers GOwalk Mantra Ultra. It absorbs the impact and converts it into energy that helps the foot propel forward.
The Skechers GOwalk Mantra Ultra utilizes two cushioning units to buffer shock and protect the foot from stress and other related injuries. The Goga Mat insole is meant to offer responsiveness to the foot while allowing it to breathe due to its air-cooled properties.
The lightweight Ultra Go cushioning serves as the midsole. It is claimed to provide energy transfer for shock attenuation and rebound.
The Skechers GOwalk Mantra Ultra has an upper unit that is mostly made from a lightweight mesh fabric for breathability and flexibility. The smooth trubuck leather overlays wrap around the key parts of the shoe, such as the toe and side areas, to enhance durability and support. It has a Natural Expansion form to render an organic and comfortable fit.
A lace-up closure is used to lock down the foot. The act of tightening the shoelaces reinforces the sidewalls, which improves lateral support.
The tongue and collar are padded for irritation-free comfort. It also hugs the ankle and instep for a snugger fit that bars accidental shoe removal.
A loop is sewn on the top of the collar. It allows for an easier pull-on experience.
