Who should buy the Skechers GOwalk Joy - Sensational Day

As one of the most popular silhouettes in the Skechers GOwalk Joy collection, the Sensational Day iteration will please those looking for the following:

  • a no-frills slip-on walking shoe that’s quick and easy to put on and take off;
  • a stretchy knit upper shoe that accommodates wider feet and bunions;
  • a walking shoe with pillowy-plush cushioning.

Who should not buy the shoe

If you are someone with narrow heels and ankles and are worried about heel slippage the GOwalk Joy is also available in a laced-up version, see the Joy - Paradise.

If you really like the silhouette of this slip-on but would like to explore more color options, consider the GOwalk Joy - Terrific.

And if you’d rather wear a mesh upper instead of knit, the original GOwalk Joy may grab your attention.

The convenience of a knit slip-on design

A good number of people are amazed at the sock-like comfort of the shoe’s Stretch Fit upper. It requires no break-in whatsoever, making your feet feel at home from the start.

The wearers claim to have plenty of room for the toes even when their feet start to swell. One of them says that she typically needs a Wide or Extra Wide width in her shoes but this is not the case with this GOwalk Joy.

People with “bad” and “terrible” bunions highly appreciate the knit upper as it never pinches or causes pain to their toes. A few people who have gone through foot surgery say that this is one of the few shoes they can wear that doesn’t press on top of their feet.

This is not to mention how quick and easy it is to slip in and out of the shoe! However, the latter has become a problem for several wearers. They find the shoe too wide in the heel which results in it sliding up and down the Achilles.

GOwalk Joy - Sensational Day is cushy comfortable

This Skechers shoe proves to be so comfortable that some people even use it as a house slipper. The combination of the 5Gen midsole and the Goga Mat insole has been mind-blowing for many owners of the shoe. “Puts a little extra spring in my step” and “like walking on pillows,” say some of them.

This is the type of shoe you can take on a long-distance walk or hours of standing without pain or fatigue.

People with knee problems (including knee replacements) whose feet and legs get tired easily also find the shoe a real life-saver.

And if you need to use custom orthotics, the shoe’s insole is easily removable.

Work or travel: this Skechers shoe can handle it all

Some of the wearers of the Sensational Day include waitresses, teachers, ER nurses, among other professionals who spend hours on their feet. They say that this GOwalk Joy is among the few (if not the only) shoes they can wear without trouble.

People who travel also favor this walking shoe a lot. “Held up under hours of walking on cobblestones,” says someone who wore the shoe on a week-long trip to Prague.

Lets your foot breathe

Someone who wore the shoe in Vegas at 100 degrees F claims that the GOwalk Joy remained breathable. Another example is a person who works 10 hours on their feet without getting hot in the shoe either.

Just make sure to stay away from rain, even slight drizzle, when wearing the Sensational Day. Its soft knit upper gets soaked almost instantly.

Light like a feather

“I am not even aware I have shoes on,” says one of the reviewers. The Skechers GOwalk Joy - Sensational Day is indeed so light that it’s easy to forget you are even wearing it.

This also makes it very easy to pack for a trip or a vacation.

Maintenance couldn’t be easier

Like many Skechers shoes, the GOwalk Joy is machine washable.
