Updates to Skechers GOwalk Max - Privy

  • The Skechers GOwalk Max - Privy is a slip-on walking shoe created for men. It is crafted using lightweight materials such as the mesh upper which promotes movement and breathability of the interior.
  • The sole unit is made of the 5GEN technology which is flexible, durable, and responsive. The footgear is also equipped with the Air Cooled Goga Mat insole that promotes air circulation.

Skechers GOwalk Max - Privy size and fit

The Skechers GOwalk Max - Privy is only available in men’s sizes, from 7 to 14, including half sizes. For the width, it comes in D - Medium and 2E/3E - Extra Wide profiles. The fit of the upper is snug but non-restrictive, and the mesh material allows the foot to naturally expand while walking.

Outsole

The midsole of the Skechers GOwalk Max - Privy is designed to be durable and firmer at the bottom since it also serves as the outsole. It features a tread pattern that resembles a wicker basket which promotes multi-directional flexibility and traction.

Midsole

The foot is kept comfortable and supported by the Air Cooled Goga Mat insole. It also ensures that air circulates inside to maintain a comfortable temperature for the foot.

The main midsole of the Skechers GOwalk Max - Privy is made of the 5GEN technology. This cushioning unit is a proprietary injection-molded compound that has been engineered to be lightweight. It has a memory retention property that aids in absorbing impact. It is also responsive, which means that the impact of each step is converted into energy to push off.

Upper

The Skechers GOwalk Max - Privy is equipped with a super lightweight mesh that delivers a comfortable fit. The material is breathable and keeps the foot chamber aerated. Synthetic overlays protect some parts of the upper, such as the toe box, the lower half of the quarters, and the rearfoot. The rearfoot overlay also functions as an external heel clip that holds the back of the foot steady.

The trainer sports a slip-on silhouette and there are no laces or straps at the midfoot that would allow users to adjust the fit. There is a pull loop at the back of the collar which makes it easy to put on the shoe.

Keeping the foot comfortable is the smooth inner lining. On top of that, the collar is lightly padded to keep the Achilles area free from chafing while also securely locking the foot down.
