Updates to Skechers GOwalk Max

  • The Skechers GOwalk Max is a shoe engineered for athletic and casual walking. It has a slip-on design for an easy on-and-off wear. It employs a textured mesh upper in order to be light and cool on the skin.
  • The insole uses the Goga Max technology for a supportive yet comfortable cushioning. It is also claimed to be responsive to each step, propelling the foot forward with each footstrike. The SQUISH component is also incorporated for a more plush underfoot sensation.
  • Underneath it is the 5GEN midsole, a proprietary injection-molded compound. This lightweight material adds an extra bounce to the step with its memory retention quality. It is also shock-absorbent.
  • The rubber outsole is made to be flexible to promote natural foot flexion. Despite its pliability, it is still durable to protect against the daily wear and tear.

Skechers GOwalk Max size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk Max is designed with the men’s feet and walking needs in mind. It typically runs true to size since it follows the standard shoe sizing scheme in terms of length. It is available in US sizes 7 through 16. Shoppers can opt to choose between two width options, B - Medium and 4E - Wide.

Outsole

The bottom of the Skechers GOwalk Max is made of flexible rubber that is aimed to grant the user the freedom to move unrestrictedly. Meanwhile, it is still structured to be solid and durable for stability and longevity.

Midsole

The Skechers GOwalk Max utilizes the GOGA Max insole. It is made to be supportive and responsive. On the other hand, the SQUISH component cradles the foot for a soft underfoot feeling.

Working together with it is the proprietary 5GEN technology. It is a lightweight injection-molded compound that exhibits shock-absorbing properties. It also has memory retention to distribute the weight evenly across the sole for an improved walking sensation. It works double-time as the outsole as well.

Upper

The Skechers GOwalk Max features a slip-on construction to allow the buyer to slip the footgear on and off. It sports a lightweight textured mesh fabric that feels light and airy on the skin. It has an almost seamless style that fits snugly in order to prevent unwanted shoe removal. The solid weave mesh panels reinforce such high-wear areas as the toe and the heel.

A pull tab is attached to the heel. It makes putting on and taking off of the footwear a lot easier.
