Sole unit against fatigue

The ULTRA GO unit makes up the midsole of the GOwalk 5 - Apprize. It is a lightweight cushioning technology that is engineered to be responsive. It converts the impact of foot landings into energy for moving forward. Because of this characteristic, the foot and leg muscles don’t quickly tire.

It has a dual-density construction. It does not easily compress at the heel, allowing it to properly support the weight of the wearer. But the forefoot is more pliable for a smoother toe-off action.

Another feature found underneath is the COMFORT PILLAR TECHNOLOGY. These structures placed under the heel and the forefoot enhance shock absorption in these areas.
