Outsole

The Skechers GOwalk Max - Hero has a bottom that is lined with rubber, a commonly used material for traction and durability. It is made to be flexible in order to allow the base to move with the foot.

Midsole

The Air Cooled Goga Mat insole lends a cushioned and supportive underfoot feel to the Skechers GOwalk Max - Hero. It is breathable to keep the interiors cool and fresh. The heel portion has extra padding to accommodate the heavy impact on this part during walking.

The 5Gen technology is featured prominently on the midsole. It is the meat of the platform, offering shock-absorption and stability. It has a lightweight structure made of an injection-molded compound and memory retention properties.

Upper

A soft woven fabric composes the lightweight and irritation-free upper of the Skechers GOwalk Max - Hero. It aims to be flexible and breathable in order to permit natural toe splaying and forefoot flexion. It is patterned with a heathered finish for an understated style.

Synthetic overlays have been added to the sides to enhance the durability of these high-wear areas. They also boost lateral support for side-to-side movements.

The collar and tongue are cushioned to introduce a snug fit. They also protect the skin from getting chafed.

A lace-up closure locks the foot down. It also tightens the sides, therefore contributing to improving the lateral stability.
