The GoWalk 4 – Pursuit features athletic fabric mesh upper which expands naturally and changes with the shape of the foot during walking gait. The upper was designed with proper breathability in mind to keep the foot fresh and cool. Expansion of the engineered mesh upper also provides a comfortable, natural fit. The mesh underneath embraced a contrasting colour to make GoWalk 4 -Pursuit looks more stylish.

On the midsole is a Skechers 5GEN cushioning material. The material was designed to be lightweight, flexible and responsive. The 5GEN midsole provides a bouncy effect and absorbs shock in every step. These kinds of functionalities help prevent injuries, provide proper support and make the foot feels comfortable all day.

Additional support and comfort are also provided by the Goga Max insole. The Goga Max insole features bamboo lined footbed for anti bacterial odour control.

Another noticeable feature about the midsole is its tapering midfoot design for better arch support.


Skechers GoWalk 4 - Pursuit Outsole

The midsole can also be referred to as the outsole. It was designed to be as lightweight as possible and features 4 Goga pillars or cushion pods: two at the heel and two at the forefoot. These features enable bouncy and responsive effect for every step of walking. They absorb impact shock in every gait, making them supportive features for providing comfort. The outsole was designed to be durable and prevent quick wear.

The Skechers GoWalk 4 – Pursuit is praised for its comfort, lightweight and flexibility. The 5GEN cushioning midsole, Goga Pillars and Goga Max were appreciated by many users for the comfort and support they deliver. Though the upper was designed to be highly breathable and lightweight, there are few users that complained about sweaty feet after wearing it for a long people. One thing most reviewers cannot dispute is its comfort. The price is appreciated by the budget conscious individual.

Overall, the shoe is one of the best options for women looking for a comfortable, lightweight, and supportive walking shoe. It’s worth noting that there are people that feel like the shoe runs narrow and there are some that feel like it runs big.

Advice: for those that need wide fit, it’s better to go half a size up or try it in a store before ordering online and vice versa for those that need narrow fit.

Hi Stephen,
I’m glad you like the website. Please let me know if you have any question regarding the shoes on the site.


I LOVE Sketchers!  I bought myself some of these or similar a little over a year ago and have totally loved them!  They are so comfortable.  I’m on my feet all day for most days of the week.  I’m looking at possibly getting me some dark colored ones as I have a dress code I’m supposed to follow and the ones I’ve got are a little brightly colored for the code.  I was really pleased to see the black ones and I’ll look into getting them for where I work.  Being on my feet all day is so tiring.  It would be nice to be able to wear my Sketchers to work too.  Thank you so much for sharing your review!  


I’m definitely going to try these in store first as you suggested (and, thank you for that!)  I have tiny ankles but, a size 8 1/2 or 9 depending on the brand.  I love ordering online ut, I’m always nervous when it’s a brand I am not used to buying.

The fact that people are saying they “feel like slippers” because of how light-weight they are is a huge plus!  I work from home but, take long walks as often as I can with my Man.  

These Sketchers Gowalk 4 Pursuit slip-ons might be just what I need.  I’d like to keep my running shoes for running and, stop wearing down my tread by using them for walking too! 



These look to die for and thank you for putting this information together. Sketchers are great brand and I grew up wearing those shoes. This is a a great review of sketchers gowalk 4 by the way and I will be buying them sometime soon.

I will be back and I will be asking for more recommendations as I have others to buy for as well for b-days etc. Thanks.


Thanks for the comment Philip. I will be glad to help.


Great shoes and your information is really detailed and useful! It makes it easier to choose which shoes I want, really great! Thank you for this article!
