As part of the GOwalk 4 walking shoe line, Skechers launched the GOwalk 4 - Incredible update. This model strays a bit from its predecessor as it sports a slip-on design instead of a lace-up structure. It features an open mesh upper that provides both support and breathability.
Though it differs in silhouette from the original version, it still utilizes the same sole technologies such as the 5GEN midsole which is both responsive and shock absorbent. This walking shoe from Skechers still uses the Goga Pillars at the outsole for an adaptive cushioning.
The midsole of the Skechers GOwalk 4 - Incredible also serves as its outsole. The unit is made to be durable to withstand walking on rough surfaces. It also features a tread pattern that enhances traction of the cushioning platform.
At the bottom of the outsole are the Goga Pillars. These button-like structures at the heel and the forefoot deliver adaptive cushioning. They adjust to the surface and pressure to keep the foot protected at all times.
The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Incredible employs the 5GEN midsole. This cushioning unit is designed to absorb shock and be responsive to deliver all-day comfort and keep the wearer moving. It tapers at the midfoot section to render support for the arch area.
The trainer also utilizes the Goga Max insole which adapts to the foot, thereby amplifying the cushioning and support of the midsole. It has a bamboo lining with anti-bacterial properties that prevent odor formation to keep the foot fresh.
The Skechers GOwalk 4 - Incredible is equipped with an engineered mesh upper. What sets it apart from other GOwalk 4 models is that the pores of this fabric are more open to deliver better breathability. On top of that, there are air mesh side panels that heighten aeration of the foot chamber.
Its seamless construction provides the foot with a comfortable and supportive foot wrap. It is designed to accommodate natural foot expansion throughout the day.
Synthetic overlays protect the high-wear areas of the upper such as the toe, the heel, and the Quick-Fit Portal. They prevent the fabric from wearing out too quickly. The heel overlay also keeps the rearfoot steady. The Quick-Fit Portal is used to easily pull the shoe on the foot, so the overlay on top of it protects it from the constant pulling action.
