Profile of the Skechers GOwalk 5 - Fantastic

Who is it for? The Skechers GOwalk 5 - Fantastic is marketed for any woman who wants a slip-on pair of walking shoes. It is easy to wear, so even ladies of advance age or impaired mobility won’t have any trouble putting them on.

What is it for? This pair of Skechers walking shoes is suitable to be worn all day. Its sole technology adjusts to uneven surfaces, so walking on cobblestones won’t be too hard on your ankles. It also uses a breathable mesh that keeps feet fresh even during warm conditions.

Midsole

Traction. The foam technology used in the Skechers GOwalk 5 - Fantastic functions as both the midsole and the outsole. Its dual-density construction allows it to withstand abrasion from rough surfaces and, at the same time, soften the impact of walking.

Impact protection. The foam, called the ULTRA GO, is a responsive unit that attenuates shock to protect the joints from impact. The midsole technology adds bounce to each step, preventing tired feet and legs.

Adaptive pods. Under the heel and the forefoot are the Comfort Pillars. These components act like buttons that react to uneven surfaces. They enhance the walking experience for ultimate comfort.

Comfort. Wearers are treated to a plush layer of Skechers Air Cooled Goga Mat when they wear the GOwalk 5 - Fantastic. This insole is breathable, aiding in temperature and moisture control inside the footwear. It also has a high-rebound that increases the shock attenuation features of the midsole.

Upper

Cozy wrap. A mesh fabric with a soft-heathered finish is used for the top of the Skechers GOwalk 5 - Fantastic. It has metallic threads woven in that accentuate the colorful threads of the material. It is soft and somewhat stretchy, allowing it to accommodate various foot shapes.

Support. The rearfoot is covered in a smooth synthetic overlay. It reinforces this area, particularly the Quick-Fit portal, and enhances heel stability too.

Quick on and off action. The slip-on style of this footwear makes it appealing to people who want a no-fuss trainer. Use the Quick-Fit portal to prevent the back from folding in as you slide your foot in.

Fit. The GOwalk 5 - Fantastic doesn’t have a lacing system that can be used for fit adjustment. What it has is a plush collar that keeps the heel locked down and prevents slippage.
