Profile of the Skechers GOwalk Evolution Ultra

The GOwalk Evolution Ultra opens up a new line of Skechers Performance walking shoes. This model is equipped with the brand’s latest ULTRA GO midsole unit. It works together with the high-rebound ULTRA PILLARS to deliver a lightweight and responsive cushioning.

The upper unit is made of the new SOCKNIT360 material. It is a soft knit fabric which aims to create a snug and soft 360-degree foothold.


The bottom of the GOwalk Evolution Ultra features large pods. They contribute to the cushioning and shock absorption provided by the midsole. The grooves between them make the platform flexible to accommodate unhindered foot bending. The entire outsole is made textured to enhance traction on various surfaces.

The pods of contrasting color in the heel and forefoot sections of the unit are called the ULTRA PILLARS. Their springy nature ensures a responsive heel-to-toe transition during the walking gait cycle.


The ULTRA GO midsole serves as the main cushioning unit of the Skechers GOwalk Evolution Ultra. This foam compound is made to be responsive and deliver underfoot support during extended walking sessions. It is also designed to be lightweight and flexible to provide a pleasant walking experience.

The Air Cooled Goga Mat enhances the work of the midsole. It offers extra padding and comfort while also allowing air to circulate under the foot to keep it fresh and odor-free.


The GOwalk Evolution Ultra relies on a nearly seamless SOCKNIT360 upper for a secure foothold. Comprised of a soft woven fabric, it wraps around the foot in an attempt to create a second-skin feel, just like a sock. It also features a stretchable knit collar to help the wearer slide in and out effortlessly. A fabric pull tab at the back also assists the on-and-off action.
